A clean restaurant with interesting decor and the food is good... Not the greatest Thai food I've ever had (I'm still searching for truly great Thai food in the DMV area) but definitely good. Most recently I had the Chicken Satay (appetizer) and the Drunken...More

I generally stick with simple dishes when trying new restaurants, and Galae Thai's take on Pad Thai with shrimp was a delicious and beautifully-presented answer to that request. The shrimp were delicate and flavorful, and the noodles and morsels of tofu were delicious as well....More

Almost didn't go in. TA said it was closed, posted hours of 11:00 am - 3:00 pm. This is wrong, they are open until 10 pm. Ordered the coconut soup. It was very good. Sushi was good.

Servings are quite small and pricey. But what I couldn't shake off my mind was that the server asked for more tip and said that I gave less than what was required. That was the deal breaker. I am not going back to this place...More

One of the problems with Alexandria is that people are timid when it comes to Asian food, hence why a solid Thai place is forced to serve sushi- a food from a totally different country. The Thai food suffers from the collision.

A hidden gem next to the Movies, right across from the metro stop Eisenhower. Hard to find a better meal in this area without going to old-town. The service is top notch. Too bad sushi chef and Drummer 'Made' is no longer there.

food was predictable and decent. I had a salad with a way too hot dressing on it. Other dishes at our table were fine. Pleasant atmosphere. Good for before/after a movie but I wouldn't come to this area just to eat here.
