We had the chicken pot stickers, panang chicken and chicken pad see ew for dinner. All were delicious! Service was also excellent. A very good meal.

Excellent service and great food. I highly recommend the penang curry. If they served it in a cup I would happily drink it, it is that good.

Very good Thai food in Shirlington. Great place for dinner pre- or post-movies or theater in Shirlington. All of the standards are served efficiently in a light & airy dining room.

Wonderful place to eat Authentic Thai food in the Shirlington area. The service is swift and a smile on the servers face. The food is just wonderful as are the appetizers. Just plain good food.

Had the lemongrass chicken and was really hoping for a little more flavor, I guess more on the bland side. Service was excellent and timely.

This being our fifth visit to Thai in Shirlington, I can say with sufficient authority that the food is consistently well prepared. Our group of five each ordered a different appetizer and entrée to experience the variety within the menu without disappointment. The service was friendly and attentive. Winning dishes included Pad Gai, Shrimp and Crab Gyoza, Rice Bowl with... More

Even if you're not nuts about Thai food proper, this place is worth the visit! Excellent variety of dishes ranging from the traditional to the tame; specialty seems to focus on chicken dishes. Seating is comfortable and quiet, service is beyond outstanding. Your server will not make a bad recommendation, as my few experiences here has evidenced. Lunches are easy... More

Having visited for both lunch and dinner, this is a steady, good restaurant amid a sea of some terrible restaurants just down the street. The fried grouper with basil and garlic, chili sauce was a fine surprise. Other dishes including pad Thai, green chili curry and tofu were solid, enjoyable. Overall I rated this restaurant as average because the standard,... More

My wife and I ate (again) at T.H.A.I. in Shirlington and were not disappointed. We each had something different this time--BBQ pork, and Nua Siam steak. Both were excellent. The pork was tasty and came with sticky rice and a small papaya salad. Dinner and drinks came to $65. The service was friendly and prompt. We've been eating here for... More
