Visited the restaurant with family under the clock tower near Herndon - Centreville line. All of us commented that it is a better Thai place compared to some others in Northern Virginia. Seating is comfortable with cushion chairs, walls are decorated with Thai artifacts. I...More

Fresh new interior design (bright and warm). Quality Thai food made with careful attention to details. A busy lunch location. A quiet dinner location. A neighborhood gem.

I had two one night stays in a nearby hotel and both times I had dinner there. I loved the fried rice dish with pineapple and shrimp. Very tasty. The service was also very good and the wait times very acceptable.

The kitchen lacked consistency on my last visit. The soup was, at best, without distinction. The green curry was not great. However, the shrimp dish and noodles were rather good. Don't go here to impress a business contact, but if you are craving Thai, can...More
