Visiting Sisters is always a treat because they do such a great job making and serving their food. We have sampled many different things on the menu, and have never been disappointed.

For spiciness, the choices are mild, medium, spicy, very spicy, and Thai spicy. Warning: don't order "Thai spicy" unless you've already tried "very spicy" and have that as a gauge.

The restaurant's seating area is fairly small (it's in an old store front); there are probably less than 25 seats in the restaurant. They're pretty popular, and often crowded. Because of how the restaurant is laid out, you really need to call if you have more than 4 people. You may also want to call if you're going on a Friday or Saturday evening.

We will go here again.

Do enjoy pleasant music, a unique setting and wonderful food? If yes, then Sisters is for you.

Our drinks were cold, food at just the right temperature. Portions are generously sized and arrived quickly.

Tables are close together, but you do not feel crowded.

We really enjoyed Sisters Thai in Fairfax City this weekend. We loved the Appetizers & for our meal I ordered Chicken Panang & my husband & daughter had two different Pad Thais. Everything was delicious and the service and ambience was superb. It feels like you are in a beautiful cozy home. We will definitely be back soon .

Excellent menu, service, and ambience. This is a small establishment, and was crowded throughout our dinner. We didn't have reservations, but it would be a good idea for dinner at least. It's near George Mason University, and the crowd included a good number of younger couples.

Three of us shared appetizers and dinner entrees. Particularly recommend larb (spicy ground chicken) -- it's superb! the sizzling beef and ginger chicken were also very good.

Green tea ice cream was a very nice finish.

Perhaps our expectations were too high but we were disappointed with Sisters. The Spring Rolls were very good, but the meal went downhill after the appetizer. Out of four diners only two were satisfied with their food. The other two thought their dishes were poor with little flavor. The service was average and the food pricy given portion size.
