We have enjoyed Thai In Shirlington for over 20 years and it has never let us down. The quality and variety of food has been consistent and the modern and attractive décor is very comfortable. The service is excellent as well.

Vibrant place in Shirlington serving very good Thai food. All of the standards are well prepared with some of the more unusual dishes. Service is brisk. Great spot for a pre or post-movie bite.

Great Thai food. The Pad Thai is great, and the Tom Yum Gai Sub is amazing (Chicken soup with rice noodles in spicy chicken-lime broth, crushed peanut, bean sprouts, fried garlic, scallions and crispy wontons).
