We all have I our local favorite restaurant and mine is Pasa Thai, also in McLean. So this review is a bit biased. I was having a business lunch. There were only 4-5 tables for the entire lunch period, which is a red flag. When...More

Had dinner there with a friend who was hesitant about having Thai food. She ordered the crispy duck and I had the panang curry with chicken. Both were very well prepared. The curry was not too spicy, the duck was crispy and yet quite tender...More

All is good there. You really can't make a mistake in ordering anything there. Duck is especially good. Spring rolls are simply WOW.

I'm really surprised to read the other reviews because my experience with take-out today was so disappointing. I had to double-check the address and website to make sure these reviews were about the same restaurant. Not sure if they were just having an off day...More
