I was introduced to this great little restaurant by family and friends who work at the nearby Fairfax County government complex. We have been many times, for lunch and dinner, and frequently get take-out as well. ALWAYS a very nice experience with excellent service (genuinely Thai--courteous, gracious, cheerful), authentic dishes, and quaint (but simple) setting. Try them out. I'm sure... More

We eat here quite often and find the food fantastic. A small family run restaurant that does an outstanding job. The food is of the highest quality and preparation is done very well. The presentation of dishes is superb. I highly recommend r The restUrNt. The outside patio is a great place to eat in season.

Stopped by for lunch with wife. Always in for a good Thai meal. We found it here. Very friendly staff and spot on with help and service. We tried two apps. Both very good. The main meals were fresh and superbly spiced. We will return and make this our go-to neighborhood place.

My vegetables with tofu were really delicious, although the tofu was not the best I've had. If it had been, I would have rated the restaurant a 5, instead of 4. I will be back! Craig Herberg

On a whim, four of us stopped in on a Monday night. What a pleasant surprise! The menu was very extensive. It was hard to decide. Service was excellent. When I requested extra steamed vegetables in my dish, they happily accommodated me. Our soups we flavorful and steaming. Our entrees were delicious, very generous portions and very fresh ingredients.

This restaurant is very good, not spectacular, but it's charm comes from an attentive family/owner clan which delivers consistency. A request for "Thai spicy" is well received and rewarded. The Larb and tofu appetizers are well executed. Seafood combination dishes are balanced with vegetables, fresh basil, lemongrass and fine sauces. The restaurant offers a full bar and outdoor front patio... More

Ordered two appetizers: calamari and "Courtsy" rolls. Calamari was very good and rolls were ok so I had fairly high expectations for the main course. I had the spicy chili and green beans with chicken. They were generous with the chicken and beans; unfortunately, the dish was very bland--this was a first for me.....bland Thai food? None of the typical... More

Eight friends meeting up arrived a little too late to snag an outside table but were welcomed inside on a recent evening. Everyone chose something different with Pad Thais very popular. I had a crispy duck salad - very spicy and delicious. The spicy food has a chili pepper net to it's title to let you know it's hot. Matched... More
