“Always a solid choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Yesterday a friend and I stopped my Shirlington Thai before heading to the movies. We always enjoy going there as the food is priced well and the service great. This visit was no exception.

I had a light dinner of delicious spring rolls and wonton soup while my friend had fried wontons and shrimp in fried rice. We both eagerly devoured our meals.

Thanks Shirlington Thai!

“Favorite Thai Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I work nearby and frequent this restaurant because of the excellent food, service, and location. I haven't had a dish I didn't like here! Great location and outdoor dining during the right seasons.

I enjoy their drunken noodles paired with a Pinot Grigio. Their crispy egg rolls and chicken Sarah are also delicious!

Shirlington is a quaint neighborhood nestled just off of 395. The tree lined streets, small shops and "local" restaurants make it a must to visit. You'll have a variety of choices but one of my favorites is Thai Shirlington!

“Great food, great location and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I work in Shirlington and there are plenty of great restaurants in the area, but this one SHINES above the rest! I have always enjoyed the service, ambiance and most especially the food! So many great dishes to choose, but I have to recommend the Spicy Chicken Basil. It's prepared like I've never had anywhere else and the flavor is outstanding...I have never been disappointed. I have been dozens of times and will continue to be a loyal and satisfied customer!

“Tasty and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I enjoyed the food at this nice place in Shirlington. The crispy egg rools were wonderful and the entrees came out well prepared. I found the staff friendly and attentive (although right at the line of overbearing) and the service was quick. I would go back if I had a taste for Thai in Shirlington, though I don't think it is special enough to seek out on its own. Beofre a movie, this would be a good spot to find.

“Very good meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We ate here on New Year's Eve.
Located on a beautiful street with the trees all lit up.
I liked the Gyoza's for appetizer. They were great.
The 6 of use just ordered 6 dishes and 2 appetizers and shared. Excellent food.
