We have been here several times for dinner and in the search for good Asian food, this place is a good bet. While I've never seen it crowded, every dish we've had has been consistently good. It may not serve to give you the most authentic Asian food available, but it's always tasty and reasonably priced. We will go again!

Great location near the metro. Outside seating was nice on a pleasant evening. We shared fried tofu Pad Thai and honey ginger duck. The tofu and noodles were ok. But the duck was terrific. Crispy with light covering of sauce. Beer was served in an icy cold glass. Good service.

As an English visitor to Arlington we were trying various places. Of the Thai restaurants in the down-town area we picked the Rien Tong as previous reviewers had been positive about the food. We were greeted at the door and shown to a table. The décor was old and fairly drab and the rectangular tables were in two lines but... More

This restaurant is directly across the street from the Clarendon Metro Stop. There are literally dozens of dining options within a few blocks. I stopped in for a quick lunch. Service was fast and relatively attentive. I had the panang curry. It was what I would expect from this typical dish. I have had better, but I have had much... More

I only tried the Thai food here (not the other Asian choices such as sushi that are available). The egg drop soup was OK, not great (crispy noodles became mushy faster than normal). Vegetarian Pad Thai was downright skimpy on the vegetables and only so-so in terms of flavoring. Pork in Plum Sauce was equally bland (and I normally love... More

We tried this restaurant because of Groupon. We were going to be in DC for a couple of nights and decided to try a Groupon deal. We took a cab to this restaurant and it cost us $17 one way. Not too happy about that. The meals we had were delicious. We tried sesame chicken, pad thai, and moo shu... More

Worst customer service ever! I had a groupon voucher for this place and went there for an early dinner. They need to train the staff on how to use/redeem the group on voucher. One of the staff member was yelling at me and making a huge fuss because I marked my voucher redeemed after the waitress wrote down, what I... More

We've been here twice and really enjoyed the food--got mostly Thai-style food (entrees, appetizers, soups, dessert). The wine selection is good, and their specials offer good choices (and delicious food), along with the regular menu items. And the decor is nice--the first time we ate outside (early Fall), then the last time, inside. The bar area itself is nicely designed.... More
