Had a great meal in this small Thai place in a strip mall. Authentic food, reasonable prices, good variety. Tended to run spicy, but they allow you to select your level of spice. We ordered 2 apps and 3 dishes to share among 4 and it was plenty. We especially liked the Elephant Jumps Salad and the ginger chicken. Pad Thai was great too.

Having traveled to Thailand and cooking it in my own kitchen, I've finally found an East coast Thai restaurant that truly gives you the spice and kick you ask for. Yes, my friends called us crazy for the desired insane heat but we couldn't have been happier. Also really enjoyed the inventiveness of the menu and the "western" and creative takes on traditional Thai food. The best surprise of the meal? It wasn't typical DC prices. Cost, with tip, ended up around $30 per person, including two glasses of wine each for three out of the four people dining.

Elephant Jumps is an amazing little Thai restaurant in a strip mall on Gallows Road in Fairfax.
Wonderful extensive menu......perfectly spiced and seasoned food (as hot or as cool as you like)
(If you are really brave, try the "Thai Hot" spices....my husband did and his head is still sweating)
Very inexpensive lunch specials. Many choices for dinner.
Very neat and clean and freshly decorated. Wait staff very helpful and pleasant.
One of the best Thai restaurants we have been to. Will definitely go again and again.

Had lunch at this place with a friend who recommended this place. Little restaurant, but good atmosphere. The lunch special was great!!! I believe it was about $8,- and it was a generous plate of chicken panang, a spring roll & a salad.
I would come back to this place.
Waiter was also very friendly.

This small restaurant in the corner of a strip mall is a feast. The house salad is amazing, also the spicy beef salad. We've eaten fish, pork, Thai noodle dishes. All were wonderful. Staff are very helpful.
A must stop if you like Thai food.
