We were looking for a Chinese restaurant and stumbled upon this place. The place was packed for a Friday evening so we took that as a good sign and luckily got seated before a line at the door formed. The menu had various options and the waitstaff was very kind to explain some of the menu items. We settled on soup, pad thai with chicken and shrimp and a beef dish with green beans and bamboo shoots. Everything tasted great! We noticed that the restaurant does pretty good business with take out; noticed a lot of traffic of people coming in to pick up their orders. We will likely do the same when we don't feel like dining in. Service was fast and friendly; noise level in restaurant is a bit on the loud side.

On a whim we decided to have lunch after shopping. Blindly we picked this place.
Lunch was excellent, all 4 plates were good. Everything looked and tasted so fresh. Word to the wise, be careful asking for the hot sauce, the red one is very hot.

My daughter loves this place - so much so, every time she comes to visit, she wants to eat here! The service is very fast, they aim to please, variety is adequate.

I have eaten here several times because the food is decent in the realm of available Thai food in Fairfax. They are quick to serve you and pleasant. They claim that their version of Bang Bang Shrimp is better than another (chain) restaurant in the same strip mall, and it is indeed very good stuff. The interior is a summer beach sort of affair. It is a good place to have a leisurely lunch.

Here now amor a few years. One of the better Thai places in the area. Have been happy with over 90% of the dishes we have had here. Some unique offerings. IN general everything is above average to excellent. Again, one of the best in the area!

Happy hour specials good, but not great. Lunch specials are excellent and INCREDIBLY FAST!!!!!

Great service and people.
