“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Food here is good, as is the service, but what really shines is the decor. It's a mix of traditional and modern. It's also nice and quiet.

“Great specials, very fast service, very fresh ingredients.”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

I went during lunch -- it was very quiet -- but the host and hostess were very grateful and welcoming.

The food came out very quickly and it was very fresh and cleanly presented.

I highly recommend either the pad Thai with chicken or the panang chicken. They were the best I have had in the area.

The restaurant is one of casual dining.

“Yummy! Great prices and fast during lunch”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Loved this place. Went during lunch and had the Masaman curry and Thai Iced tea. Both were delicious and service was very quick. It was very crowded at lunch so get there early.

“Best Restaurant in Herndon”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

My family has been eating at Chao Phra Ya for over 15 years! It has taken that long to pronounce it correctly. Seriously, we have eaten 100+ times here and almost that much in carry out. We have only had one bad meal (chef must have been out) and they gave us a credit for the next time.

Our favorites are the drunken noodles, pad thai, wild pork, siam beef and pork salad. If you are not feeling well, the lemon grass soup will fix you right up. You can ask to make any of these dishes less or more spicey.

Everyone there is so nice and the atmosphere is casual and pleasant.

Reviewed June 10, 2012

Good size portions of quality food. Lemon grass soup was excellent along with the drunken noodles. Spicy but with good taste quality.
