Great food, thumbs up from whole family. Service attentive, knowledgable and efficient. One word of caution: Don't eat the peppers!

We ate here recently on the way to see a movie at the nearby multiplex and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and by how pleasant the setting was. The large dining room somehow manages to feel intimate, because of the way it is laid out -- not one big room, but lots of nooks and... More

I have never had shrimp toast before but it was absolutely delicious probably better shared as after eating it I was too full to finish my entree which came with an egg roll and miso soup. Service was a little slow especially considering that the restaurant was almost empty. When I entered there was only one other table occupied and... More

I thought the food was very good and more authentic than a lot of other Thai places I have been to. The service was very good as well.

A clean restaurant with interesting decor and the food is good... Not the greatest Thai food I've ever had (I'm still searching for truly great Thai food in the DMV area) but definitely good. Most recently I had the Chicken Satay (appetizer) and the Drunken Noodles with Shrimp... Both were good but the drunken noodles fell short because it wasn't... More

I generally stick with simple dishes when trying new restaurants, and Galae Thai's take on Pad Thai with shrimp was a delicious and beautifully-presented answer to that request. The shrimp were delicate and flavorful, and the noodles and morsels of tofu were delicious as well. I may ask for a little more spice next time, but it was delicious through... More

Almost didn't go in. TA said it was closed, posted hours of 11:00 am - 3:00 pm. This is wrong, they are open until 10 pm. Ordered the coconut soup. It was very good. Sushi was good.

This place is near our place and one of our favorites to eat when we go to the movie, or want to go for a quick lunch/dinner. Our favorite dishes are Drunken Noodle, Pad Thai, Pad See-ew, PhiPhi Island, and more. The place is nice, clean and quiet. The staff is nice. Occasionally, on a bad day, it may take... More

Servings are quite small and pricey. But what I couldn't shake off my mind was that the server asked for more tip and said that I gave less than what was required. That was the deal breaker. I am not going back to this place again. The management should train their staff to be more refined and polished. You don't... More
