The Thai chef in Dupont Circle is a wonderful place for authentic Thai food. I really recommend the Thai dumplings, the sushi, and the chicken satay. Happy hour is from 4 to 7, so it's very easy to get an inexpensive yet delicious meal.

Sushi was sub par specially for the price. Our server sat around on her phone instead of checking on us.

Great Pineapple fried rice and beef noodles. The pineapples were not good but everything else was delicious i finished my plate. Of course there was only 2 pieces of shrimp to 15 pieces of chicken.
