Wahoo we have been searching for 5 states to location decent food experience we are so so sick of burgers, hot dogs, chips and overly messed up salads ( we are Australian and did not expect a poor food experience in USA) THRILLED to discover this superb tasty food and great service experience.

Loved it, we had 5 dishes 4 were fantastic and one was great! Ah finally at least one decent food experience in the USA?

If in Washington DC and after something spicy and authentic Thai this is for you;-)

Went for take out. Young man at counter was rude. The prices were ridiculously high (especially for KC). Although we were back in our hotel room within 10 minutes, the food (stir fry chicken and cashews) was lukewarm. Additionally, it was watery, greasy, and VERY salty. We LOVE Thai food but this was by far the absolute worst we've ever had. (We had our food to go but the restaurant was old, black pleather tableclothes, banquet room red pleather chairs - you get the look.)
