I wanted to like the place. The food was decent but nothing out of this world. We ask for a tonic with lime and they said they can't serve it though they do serve gin and tonics. Service was acceptable. When I received the check I was asked to pay cash. They said the machine runs slow when it rains. I didn't have the cash so gave a card. They came back pretty quickly so I don't know. Overall for thai/sushi I thought it ran on the expensive side. I'm from the NY area so I wasn't expecting it to be cheap but I was surprised. I would consider getting pad thai to go but not a sit down meal again.
Good sushi but not the best I've eaten in DC. Fresh
The food was good and there was a nice variety. Everything tasted fresh and well prepared. Service was a bit inattentive except for keeping drinks topped off. The venue was a little noisy for such a small space. Overall, not a bad dining option; I'd return again sometime.
Friendly service, great food and good happy hour deals on drinks and sushi.
When I researched this place, the place seemed to be bigger in pictures but once I got there it definitely was small and you were right on top of the people/couple next to you. There really wasn't any real personal space for a date. I wouldn't recommend this place for a date night but more so friends hanging out.
Bland food + rushed and inattentive service = no going back.
Good news is it was cheap
The service was very slow, but the food was pretty good all in all
Service is rather rude. Food is great though
Best spicy basil eggplant I've ever had. Good portion size- not too big, not too small. Excellent spice level. Would definitely go back.
Good selection of reasonably priced sushi, sushi rolls, and Thai standards. Generous portions, usually quick service and fast kitchen, consistent quality. Solid neighborhood standby.
We had friends in town who are vegetarians. Thai Chef had a great selection of classic Thai dishes and sushi. Prices were very reasonable and the portions were large. Service was great and fast.
Delicious and lots of great choices. Waitress was very friendly and quick.
Food was great.
Nice place. Great food. Quick service. Friendly environment.
Nice informal restaurant with good food and friendly service
Always love the food here.
Sat the bar. Good sushi. I'm from California where good sushi flows like water so toe this was average. Good value though and in great little neighborhood.
Sent to Thai Chef because I wanted a SE Asian dinner after a lecture on the area's art and kingship at the Smithsonian. Wasn't too hungry, so stayed with the appetizers and salads: Mee Krob, Beef Satay, and Papaya Salad. Finished as everyone should with Mango and Sticky Rice. Service was friendly and attentive, although I suspect that in the nearly empty restaurant I was seated at a table next to a lingering couple to encourage them to leave. Since I was listening to the Nats on my Walkman, I wasn't inconvenienced by their conversation.
My kids and I love this place. Some of us always want sushi and some want thai, so it works out perfectly. The food is consistently quite good (my son is a pad thai connoisseur and thinks theirs is great and the Dragon Roll is AMAZING) and the service is friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable. Noise level varies, but is manageable. The dining room isn't exactly romantic, but it's comfortable. We're regulars there.
The fish was warm and mushy
