My family of 4 had intended to eat at the Thai restaurant that is just above this one (not realizing there were two in the same spot) and ended up at Thai Tantic by mistake. This probably happens a lot. Whichever one you want to eat at, make sure you're in the right one. As far as the food goes,... More

So, this is confusing. Outside it says they have sushi. they don't. Some address as Baan Thai, but maybe that is on the 2nd floor? Fish cakes were solid (but it is hard to screw that up). Cocktails too sweet (but they comped me a beer instead). Crispy duck was coated in flour/batter and wasn't crispy, but flavor OK. This... More

Went for dinner the other night with friends...We ordered chicken dumplings for an appetizer, four entrees to split and fried bananas with green tea ice cream for dessert. The ambiance is nothing to rave about but the food was outstanding !! Everything was fresh and well seasoned as well as beautifully presented. The service was perfect...efficient and pleasant. The price... More

Thai Tanic has been a reliable Logan Circle establishment for years which I used to regularly enjoy, but the last several times I have ordered from here, the food has been terrible, almost inedible. I hope they turn things around, or that it was just a bad spell.

Great Thai food for the budget and flavor. When I'm in town this is my go to for that Thai craving. Very good portion sizes and full flavored dishes. I am especially fond of the Basil with chicken Thai hot - I like hot and they oblige.

I came here while I was on holiday in D.C. The food is absolutely phenomenal. I went twice and had the softshell crab in yellow curry and the curry duck. Both were superb. I highly recommend this restaurant. Don't let the small size be a deterrent!

Late biz lunch for two following a long morning of work. Arrived around two p.m. for one chicken salad and one ginger chicken. Each were easily suitable for 1.5 servings and we devoured them...well spiced, delicate noodles and broth with the ginger chicken. Sat in the window and watched the world unfold....our sitting there drew others into the restaurant. Efficient... More

Staying at nearby Homewood Suites, this was a short walk and far from pretentious. Pad Thai was good, very large serving so took half back to room. Definitely yes on spring rolls! Will be back!

Well..... glad that I give this one a go after trying the other Thai restaurant upstair twice. I actually like this one better than the one above. It has a lot more selection and very delicious food. I think this one is actually more authentic than the one above. They are more focus on the Thai cuisine. Rather than the... More
