My friend brought me here, and when we got to the front door, I thought it was closed. No sign, down a few stairs, worn door. That plain exterior belies the food experience hiding behind it. We did the drink pairing, and I highly recommend...More

Set menu for more adventurous family dining only. Extremely tasty food (lots of flavour and spice) in a relaxed atmosphere.

The only thing I have to complain about is that I accidentally lost the menu that I kept from the dinner. It was fantastic. I loved the food. I liked how it gradually got a bit hotter with every dish. The important thing is that...More

It's everything you've read here. We went to the early seating. Maybe its a little rushed, but that's the only possible ding on an otherwise great meal. It's hot as hell, but not so bad that you don't enjoy it all. Can't wait to go...More

My partner and I have been going to Little Serow for years now, and it is still one of the best restaurants in Washington. We are very fortunate to have this as our "neighborhood restaurant" considering we live a few blocks away. And by the...More

Went by myself to Little Serow. Food was amazing (and very spicy), service was excellent and the mood is great for couples, small groups or even to go alone. Chef's menu was really good with special mention to an amazingly good yet simple salad.

This Valentine's Day, I was committed to trying Little Serow - and no line could stop me. I arrived a little after 5, and there was already 20+ people waiting. The line moved swiftly once the restaurant opened at 5:30 for them to immediately seat...More

I am so in love with Little Serow. Evidently, everyone else is too because the wait to get into this small unassuming basement restaurant can be several hours. It is well worth the wait, trust me. The Northern Thai cuisine is traditionally spicy and delicious...More

I don't think they do. It's quite small and very crowded. More importantly their best experience is the set menu.

I very much enjoyed the restaurant. I don't know whether they do anything at all to accommodate dietary issues. They couldn't do so with regard to heat level.
