I like their lunch combos that comes with spring roll.. My favorite is beef noodle soup and poor man's noodle soup. Their beef is rather tough, and I wouldn't recommend pat-see-ew

On the evening I arrived in Alexandria for a conference, I took the hotel shuttle to Shirlington Village for supper and simply walked in to this restaurant because it served Thai food. The interior was attractively decorated and the patrons were a nice mixed crowed: couples both young and elderly, families with babies and young kids, singles who arrived on... More

Delicious food: we had the papaya pok pok salad, spicy eggplant and Pad Thai and were very pleased. Service is very good. If the weather is warm you can eat on the terrace. The atmosphere is casual, not fancy but pleasant.

While I can appreciate the sheer popularity of this spot, I cannot believe that anything rated higher than this place.

It's hard to pick what... More

Thankfully the food was delivered quickly because I was tempted to order more spring rolls. The portion sizes were very large. We ordered our green curry extra hot but the cook must not have believed us because it was no spicier than usual. So, if you want your food extra spicy be sure to let the server know you are...

Excellent service and great food. I highly recommend the penang curry. If they served it in a cup I would happily drink it, it is that good.

Very good Thai food in Shirlington. Great place for dinner pre- or post-movies or theater in Shirlington. All of the standards are served efficiently in a light & airy dining room.

Wonderful place to eat Authentic Thai food in the Shirlington area. The service is swift and a smile on the servers face. The food is just wonderful as are the appetizers. Just plain good food.

Had the lemongrass chicken and was really hoping for a little more flavor, I guess more on the bland side. Service was excellent and timely.
