The kitchen lacked consistency on my last visit. The soup was, at best, without distinction. The green curry was not great. However, the shrimp dish and noodles were rather good. Don't go here to impress a business contact, but if you are craving Thai, can keep your expectations in check, and have no time to drive elsewhere, this is a... More

Overall, mostly tasty food. We occasionally order from this Thai restaurant for group lunches and the food is good, but not amazing. In general we avoid the duck dishes because they aren't good, but the curry dishes are quite good. Their delivery stops earlier than most places though, so order earlier.

After you've succumbed to accepting Thai with American flavors, this is truly one of the best in the area. So I'm guessing most people will really like it. We always get pad thai and drunken noodles on a first visit to compare apples with apples. That's the basis for the food opinion. The service was outstanding. Prices were on par.

We stopped by here while on the way to a hotel by Dulles airport, on a whim, and fell in love with the place! If it wasn't so far out from where we live, we'd definitely make it here more often!! We had some appetizers (some kind of spring roll) which were good but what was really outstanding was a... More

I was staying in the area & decided to have a quick lunch. After reading some mixed reviews, I decided to give them a try. I came in on a Sunday afternoon & had the place to myself. I was obviously seated quickly. I ordered the Chicken Curry Puffs & the Chicken Pad Thai for an entree. My appetizer came... More

I just had lunch here and it was enjoyable. The menu is basic but covers the essentials, service was fast, and the staff spoke English very well so it was easy to work out the menu. I will come back.

I have been to this place 3 times in the past year and half. The reason we had to go was because of the restaurant coupon we had to use. But the food is worse and worse each time we went. We had lunch there today, and the food was extra salty. I had been to Thailand, I had thai... More
