Excellent Thai food, well prepared, with friendly service. I had the Shredded Duck salad with a bowl of Tom Yum soup, the perfect meal for a chilly night in December

We met a family friend of ours at Pasara on Connecticut Avenue recently and they have a small kid. The minute our friends arrived we felt unwelcomed and the already spotty service went even more downhill. The food on this occasion was greasy and seemed rushed. This is a pity because the restaurant is beautiful and the decoration is contemporary... More

Green curry veg dish was perfect. The (often pedestrian) pad Thai had an unusual and welcome twist of I-don't-know-what that made it outstanding. Service was earnest and eager to get it right eventually. When is the last time you saw a Singapore Sling on the drinks list?

Stopped by for a quick lunch while here on business trip. The wonton soup was really good and the pad won sen was also good. Service was good and overall good experience. If you want Thai this is a good quick place for a solid meal.

We stopped in for lunch and luckily we were not in a hurry. We saw a couple leave because they could not wait. There was a large group for lunch and that must held things up. The server knew things were slow and gave me a complimentary ginger ale, which was very nice. The food was excellent. My husband had... More

Wandering the streets near DuPont circle and saw this Thai restaurant. Always looking for great Thai on our travels. Hate to admit but serious competition with our local favorite back in Cali and super reasonable. Service, cleanliness, and location was fantastic!

This was a very centrally located restaurant with good Thai food. The dishes that we had were just the same that you would get at any Thai restaurant. I would go again if it were convenient, but would not travel out of my way to eat here again.

Thus sued to be solid standby for a quick Thai lunch. but it is either under new or modified management and I am sorry but it just doesn't make the grade anymore. This is perhaps reflected in the much smaller lunch crowd. Food is disappointing. It is coming off my list I am afraid.

My favorite Thai in DC! Delicious food, great/fast service, good portions/value, convenient metro (between Dupont/Farragut N), and they'll take special requests, also provide spice tray so you can do it yourself.

After a day exploring the city we thought a bit of Thai food would break it up for us. We found Pasara Thai on Trip Advisor and made the 2km walk down. Service was prompt and we were presented with water very quickly. After a long day a cold beer was on the cards. Being from Australia and both almost... More
