On the recommendation of our AirBnB host, we invited a DC friend to join us at Thai X-ing. It's a set menu, so no difficult choices to make. They began bringing out dishes as soon as we sat down. I lost count of how many were served, but each as delicious. Servings were generous. We brought our own bottle of... More

Wonderful slice of Thai cuisine. Every dish is painstakingly crafted to deliver a delicious experience. The place is tiny so call well in advance to help minimize wait time. However no matter how long the wait-- it's really worth it.

This is quite the dining experience. As others have noted, its pre-fix, and the restaurant occupies the sexond floor of a residential building. The food is quite good (although definitely not remotely "Thai" spicy). Portions are fairly generous, although everything is served family style.

Loved the food, the experience, and the place. Everything we had was delicious, and restaurant is not at all skimpy with quantity. We had more that we could eat. We weren't aware of the cost, which is $50 per person plus beverages. Consider the whole experience a special treat. Well worth it!

This a is a very small, no-frills establishment that offers a unique opportunity to taste authentic Thai food that changes with the chef's daily menu. We went on Sunday when the entire offering was vegetarian. Course after course was served of beautiful food in plentiful quantities. The long-time vegetarians at my table raved about the dishes as well as the... More

My wife, mother and I were visiting DC for a weekend, and we were looking for a good thai food restaurant. Wow did we get a good one. Thai food is up there as my absolute favorite food, and I'm pretty sure I've never had Thai food quite like this. If you live in DC or even if you are... More

There are 2 Thai X-ing restaurants, 9th st. Served alcohol. They will serve you 7 different dishes, and you eat family style. Food is delicious, but can be spicey. You can ask them for mild. Check it out, you won't be sorry!

This restaurant serves a reasonably priced set menu that is more food than I could actually eat. Every bite is packed with flavor. I've eaten here several times and there are some common themes to the menu and some items change. I love the pumpkin curry. Thai X-ing has now has two locations (one has a liquor license, the other... More

great thai food. we went on a vegetarian evening and the food was really good. i love not having to order off a menu and rather having the chef prepare what they like. it was great and we are not vegetarians. waiters are on the ball. i would recommend this resturant.

I love Thai food. I have eaten my way through many parts of Thailand over the years. It is always difficult to find anything even approaching the authentic tastes of Thailand in the USA. There are, for sure good, Thai restaurants with excellent dishes, but that sublimely distinct Thai mix of herbs and spices is hard to come by here... More
