Location in a strip mall isn't the best, but once you are inside, you start to realize it's worth the trip. The service was friendly and polite, and the food was served quick and hot. We got the chicken satay and spring rolls for an appetizer and they were both great. Then the larb gai salad came out and this... More

We were visiting the DC area and wanted to try one of the high rated Thai restaurants. This is a small but nicely decorated place in an outside shopping center. The food was very good and authentic. Nicely seasoned but not too hot to handle.

I went to Elephant Jumps with my girlfriend who was once stationed in Thailand for 4 years. She chose the restaurant. I had the green curry chicken lunch. Delicious and what a bargain with tasty spring rolls and a small salad. My friend liked her drunken noodles. It was a bit spicy but I really enjoyed my meal. We had... More

It is easy--and a mistake--to walk past this restaurant...for some of the best Thai food--beginning with Thai mushroom soup--is within its walls. Service and menu information is first rate...main plates are well prepared...selection is broad. Wine listing needs some updating...but no one goes to this special restaurant for a wine dinner. A return visit is definitely in order...

I went to lunch with friends and had a wonderful Thai meal. The vegetarian spring rolls were perfectly fried and fresh. They have a very nice selection of reasonably priced lunch specials. i chose the Thai peanut tofu dish and it was just great. They give you a choice of mild, medium, hot and Thai hot. I like hot foods... More

We are staying in a nearby hotel and across from the parking lot is this delicious Thai restaurant. We sampled pad Thai, chicken satay, green curry, fried tofu, vegetables in peanut sauce, Thai ice tea and date palm drink....all delicious.....everyone happy from ages 8 to 70!

Our very good friends from Maryland selected this restaurant for a long overdue dinner to celebrate her birthday and just good friends meeting. It’s located at the end of a strip mall with indoor (several tables) and outdoor. We were a bit nervous given the very casual small restaurant but we were very pleasantly surprised by the good food (and... More

The restaurant is easy to missed, is in a strip mall on Gallows rd. Though, everything is deliciously prepared. Is simple Thai food, is not a fussy place, but you will definitely have a great and tasty meal. They have good lunch specials, but you can a really quiet dinner as well. Jump!
