Nava Thai has been our go-to Thai restaurant for years, but we've only rarely done takeout. Tonight my wife got the Pad Woon Ew, our daughter got the Panang Curry with chicken, and I got some Tom Kha soup and twice cooked Duck Salad. All were wonderful except the duck salad which was okay but not as wonderful as I'd... More

This is a popular and respected restaurant for it's Thai cuisine. I find their Penang a little too sweet for my taste but everything is pretty good. If you boast about your spiciness threshold then I challenge you to try their Floating Market Noodle Soup.

We always enjoy their Tom Kha Kai soup with coconut, chicken, lemongrass,etc. My husband likes thechicken satay appetizer. I like shrimp with garlic. My son and son-in-law enjoyed red and green curry dishes. But curiously, twice when we have gone there, we experienced credit care use snafus. On the first occasion, the wrong credit card was returned to us and... More

This is one my go to place for Thai food in that area. I love the food, the service, the location, and the atmosphere. I love the curry dishes, the drunken noodle, kaprow (sp) dishes, the dessert, pretty much everything I've tried on the menu. The lychee martini is also dangerously delicious. The servers are always super nice and friendly... More

Nava Thai is just about my favorite Thai restaurant in the Wheaton/Silver Spring area. Normally, we do takeout, but I was in the neighborhood and dripped in for lunch. A large Gai Tom Kha soup and a Larp Gai (very spicy!). The food was as good as ever, but the prices for lunch were the same as for dinner. Still... More

OK, I'd been trapped in the house recovering from flumonia (don't ask...); since both my wife and I have our offices in our house, she's been trapped with me. Me: I feel much better; let's go for lunch & get out today. Her: OK. Thai? Me: OK, Nava Thai? Her: Deal! This restaurant offers the best version of my all-time... More

It had been a while since we visited the restaurant. Our previous trip a few years ago did not go well - long wait for service, problems in the kitchen, But it was cold and we wanted Thai food, so we decided to try it again. Service was wonderful and the food was amazing. They must have solved their problems!... More

Our party had to go find someone to take our order after 20 minutes. After ten minutes of serving two of us we had to go find someone to remember to bring the third meal. Meanwhile, the first two meals were either cold or almost eaten. My pad see ewe was not good. Instead of the usual hoped-for healthy broccoli,... More

In the heart of Wheaton, Nava Thai offers delicious Thai food in a pleasant dine-in setting. Some of the dishes seemed to take a unique perspective on the usual and provide a welcome change to the usual, though the staples are all here—including some phenomenal pad thai.

So as not to spread our germs, we did a takeout instead of getting a table, but the food was still up to their usual excellent standard. My wife got the Drunken Noodles with Pork; I got the Tilapia in Red Curry. The curry was delectably spicy, right on the edge of JUST hot enough to keep things interesting without... More
