That's all I had, but it was tasty and with plenty of shrimp. I was with colleagues that had pad thai, curry, etc., and everyone enjoyed what they had. Service was fast and friendly. It's a good choice if you're near Dupont Circle.

Happy hour deals are great - $5 for sushi (highly recommend the crunchy tuna and salmon) and cocktails (a little watered down though but great nonetheless). Very spicy drunken noodles, and a solid curry. Would go back for the happy hour for sure.

The Thai chef in Dupont Circle is a wonderful place for authentic Thai food. I really recommend the Thai dumplings, the sushi, and the chicken satay. Happy hour is from 4 to 7, so it's very easy to get an inexpensive yet delicious meal.

It wasn't anything impressive for a first time person trying Thai food. Noodles were extremely oddly cooked. I personally would not go there again, service was ok.

Sushi was sub par specially for the price. Our server sat around on her phone instead of checking on us.

Went in for a dinner with my niece. We arrived around 9.15, and seated promptly as we were the only guests. May be late for dinner. The food we ordered were just ok, will I go again. No
