Sala Thai is our local go-to spot for Thai food and we're always satisfied. Servers are friendly, the ambiance is nice, and they are incredibly quick. Takeout is ready is 10 minutes and dining in, the food almost comes out too fast.

The dishes aren't necessarilly the most exotic, but having lived in Thailand, I can say they're certainly 'authentic enough.' They've got all the American Thai staples (panag curry, pad thai, etc.) with some pretty good sushi now too. Soft-shell crab is highly recommended. Whatever they lack in 'adventurousness', they make up for in consistent, quality food and good price.

One of my favorite U St. restaurants. It's in an ideal location in the heart of the U St. corridor. They've got a great selection of food. They do the Thai 'staples' (Pad Thai, curries, etc.) quite well and get creative with some really good specials. They've also got a decent selection of choices from other Asian countries like sushi and tempura. The ambiance is nice. It'd work for a romantic meal, but you also wouldn't be out of place in jeans with some friends. Good prices given the location.

Stopped here for a bite during a one night trip in DC. Great service, clean bathrooms, fantastic spicey tuna rolls. I also had a chicken and asparagus dish that i can't recall the name that was very tasty. The service was really good, the waitress recommended a few spots to go after and they were great as well. Odd playlist for a restaurant, kept bouncing between hip hop, rap and 90s pop - not a big deal, just odd.

We enjoyed our meal, with attentive staff (the waiter was new, so accompanied by the manageress at each visit to oversee his performance in dealing with us) and very tasty food.
A good choice in an area with lots of competition for diners' money.
Two mains and two soft drinks totalled $37 excluding gratuities.

I had lunch in this joint and should have brought my disinfectant with me. The walls next to the table were covered with filth.We sat in a booth next to the bathroom hallway.The place needs a good scrubbing down.The menu were also grimy.

The service was good and the waitress was very attentive. The chicken curry with peanut sauce was nice and came with a small serving of white rice.The sauce was crunchy and had good peanut flavor.Pass on the spring rolls.5.95 for four small rolls was over priced.

I am still looking for that great Thai meal in DC.
