We had one dinner there and enjoyed it. The food was clearly freshly prepared. There are multiple party rooms. The staff is friendly. If you like Thai, this is a good choice.

Delicious and affordable! Laid back atmosphere and mouth watering food. If you are staying at the fairfield inn downtown dc it is right across the street. If you like thai food, then i recommend it!

This food wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I ordered medium heat and got extra spicy, another family member ordered medium and it wasn't spicy at all. You get a decent portion.
