    Surprisingly delicious!

    We were a little dubious about this place by the outside, but upon walking in, it was very nice decor. I rated the atmosphere at a 4 because I think it just needs a paint job in some places. The menu was not very extensive, but everything we got was absolutely delicious and fresh. The chicken satay was the best I've had because it was perfectly cooked - very tender. We got a noodle/fresh veggie roll as an appetizer, I think they were called garden rolls, and they were very tasty. I could tell they were not put together a day in advance like a lot of other restaurants do because they weren't soggy. For our entrees, we got the panang and green curries. Both of us loved our dishes as they add more vegetables then the norm. Also, the perfect spice/hotness for each dish. Very fast service as well. I would highly recommend this place.

    Near Perfection

    Nearly every facet of restaurant qualities was top notch at this restaurant. First the atmosphere was stunning, and romantic. I enjoyed the window seating as well, being that I am an avid people watcher. Next, the presentation of the food and drinks was impeccable. It was almost too beautiful to eat. Once you dig in though, you will never want to visit another Thai place in your life. My food was incredibly flavorful! I also had a cocktail that was beautiful and tasty too. The service here was faster than anything that I have ever experienced at another sit down restaurant. The only downfall of this restaurant was the glass of warm, city tap water.

    Very good!

    Took a friend that never had Thai food. She had duck and I had Pad Thai. We both thought it was delicious - and the best part - close to the Metro!! Will definately go back!

    Get on that green curry

    If you can handle spicy try the Gaeng Keaw Wan it is the most glorious tasting Thai curry in Chinatown. Royal Thai, Kanalaya, and Thai Chili have nothing on this (especially Thai Chili)

    Love their apptizer

    We stop by for a quick bite but we end up order Dumpling and Laab Gai for starter and Gai-Op-Poo-Khao-Fai and Pineapple Fried Rice for dinner...I love their Siam Punch...I will try Strawberry Sassy next time. (no alcohol beverages) I finished my meal with my favorite, Mango with sticky rice...yum yum...I almost have to roll myself back to hotel...

    Try this Place!

    Don't be fooled by the facade of the building. When I initially saw it, I thought it looked like a beer house because their sign was written on tarp. When you actually walk into the doors, it's like a totally different atmosphere. It's kind of posh. The food is great, the staff very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this place.

    Tasty Thai

    Another nice Thai restaurant next to Verizon Center but much quieter since it's located on the "other side." Food was fresh & tasty and the service was so very friendly. I ate there for lunch and I thought it was a good price for a nice amount of food -- about $10 with tax and tip for the lunch special which came with a Spring roll. Will definitely eat there again!
