Nice selection, good service. Food was good, but not great. We were able to get a seat quickly on a Friday at lunch and were in and out in good time, but didn't feel rushed. Recommended for a quick, tasty lunch.

Overall pretty good Thai food. A little pricey but its DC. About 5 blocks off the mall. The mango and coconut sticky rice dessert is great. I had calamari for an app and found it bready and not very flavorful but some of the other apps like som tom were really good. Cost $100 for two adults and a teen.

Walked by this place not knowing what it would be, but a very good decision!

Especially their papaya salad brought me back to Thailand and i had an amazing khao soi, my favourite Thai dish. Service was great as well, so definitely a recommendation!

Ordered our drinks and arrived shortly. The Thai Iced was delicious! When ordering apps, they were out of Fried Calamari :( Ended up ordering Fried Tofu which had no taste... For our Entree we ordered Seafood Pad Thai...decent plate size and excellent taste. Not a place I would die to come back to again.

We had a great meal! Great service! Reasonable prices! We had Pad Thai, Pad Sui, crispy chicken, red curry and potpourri rice.

Would order this again and again!

And would want to try new things!

Just go. 'Nuff said.
