This restaurant has recently changed hands, names, and menus. The owners have carefully maintained locals' favorite Thai dishes and sushi while stepping things up in decor and offerings. The real draw here is the Isan (northeastern) Thai menu. Wash your hands and dig into some...More

If you are looking for consistently good Thai food in the Capitol Hill area of DC, this is the place to to. Among the best: chive dumplings, larb gai, all the noodle and curry dishes. The restaurant also has a good sushi bar.

Well, this was just average Thai food. They have the usual dishes, but nothing that really stand out. The service was not bad, but not great. Worth going back? There are several other Thai restaurants in the area. It might be worth trying once, but...More

Our family of four stopped in on a whim when we were heading back to our rented town home one night after a long day of tourist stuff. The service was friendly, relatively fast, and the food was excellent! We had Pad Thai, sushi, steamed...More
