Finally I don't have to go on a 25 mile trip for my favorite Thai dish! I am a Pad Thai junkie. I don't like my noodles slimy or too light! The fish oil and peanuts must be measure correctly to balance the dish. There are numerous resturants that probably have my picture posted for returning their food and not being to kind regarding the taste or lack there of! Whenever returning from north of Baltimore, I stop at a place that set the Thai (US) standard for me in Columbia, MD. Then a dear friend offered to buy me dinner because I stayed late to help them complete a project.Hello, BEAU THAI, walking distance from my office, I don't have to pack an overnight bag just to pick up my favorite dish when I have a craving for it! Now if only I didn't have to go to Canada for my favorite toss salad or Boston for the best Wasabi Salmon...

So good. You can tell it is made with a higher quality product than other Thai restaurants around here. Delivery is always fairly quick. The shrimp wonton, Scott's favorite, and chicken special are really good.

I am a self proclaimed thai food junkie and living in the Shaw neighborhood I often lament my trek to other areas of the city in search of anything thai. Imagine my excitement at the mere thought of Beau Thai. I couldn't wait! The dining room is small but cozy with simple modern furniture and a 5 stool bar with limited spirits. The FOH staff was comprised of 4 people, which seemed like it should have been enough considering the small space but the bartender was also serving tables and running food from the kitchen, which made it difficult for me to order. When I finally did... kra pao and panang (both chicken), and the thai basil gimlet. Gimlet: AWESOME! 5 stars, not too sweet, great taste of thai basil & lime. Kra Pow: Pretty good. 4 stars, nice and spicy, well seasoned, lots of basil. Panang: Honestly the poorest panang I have EVER tasted and the reason I will not be back. If it wasn't so late in the evening when I carried out I may have taken it back!! The curry was almost completely white, runny, and grainy in consistency. The taste of kaffir lime was so faint it was practically nonexistent. I pray that this was an error on the part of the kitchen but what respectable chef would send something out that looked/smelled/tasted like that?!

I was walking my dog a few months ago and stumbled on this restaurant. It's on the corner of R and NJ NW....between 4th and 5th...it doesn't seat a lot of people; its decor is simple with a nice atmosphere. The staff was super nice. Having just come back from Thailand, the food was very authentic and delicious. Despite is size, this place packs a punch! DC has its share of Thai restaurants, but this is by far the best. It's quiet enough to take someone on a date as well and I hate that its 2 blocks from my house...cause I'll be eating there a lot now!

I absolutely love it. I found this place while taking an afternoon walk. I work at Howard University Hospital. They are relatively new. The place wasn't even completely set up (no furniture) when I initially found them. The food is fresh and delicious. The prices reasonable and the staff friendly and eager to please. I have recommended to everyone. It's was well worth the walk.
