Little take-out place in Old Town Alexandria. Seemed like a Mom and Pop operation. Good, tasty food in generous portions for reasonable prices, especially for this tourist town. Soup was great on a chilly winter night. Pad Thai hit the spot. Of course, every cook's...More

Mostly Thai flavors, but just really good stir fry. The prices are so reasonable. This is a local favorite!

On King Street in the heart of Alexandria. Pasted by and was in the mood for Thai food. Just a small local place and not very fancy. The service was good but the food was nothing out of the ordinary. Prices were reasonable.

This little place is a quick stop for dinner and moderately priced. The owners are very friendly and the food is good.

Good for quick Asian takeout on a budget, but not really a must-see. Definitely good for a quick bite, but nothing special.

Stopped on a whim. Food was OK. Nothing special. Don't expect anything other than styrofoam and plastic utensils even if eating in. Service was borderline rude. You pay before you get your food and I mistakenly left a tip thinking someone would walk the 10...More

Poor quality and small portions. Psd Thai was greasy and made with a few frozen veggies. Not impressed.
