Ate here twice while staying in Columbia Heights. Our party tried the phad Thai, the yellow curry and a couple of the chicken and fish meals, plus various roles and the chicken skewers for appetizers. Biggest hits were the Phad Thai and the shrimp roles. Decent service, the place was spacious and clean.
Five of us shared a number of appetizers: shrimp wrapped in rice paper, shrimp patties, pork belly, dumplings. I had tom ka guy [yummy] and then I tried the roast pork noodles with a side of broth. To much food for me! But all good. Service was OK, but the person who took our appetizer orders acted a little grumpy. Otherwise things went well. Everyone really enjoyed the food.
When we entered with a reservation they tried to give us a table right by the door although the restaurant was only half full. We insisted on another table, which they very reluctantly gave us. The food was o.k but nothing exceptional. We noticed the following day that they had added a tip (we were 6 people) and never mentioned that the tip was included so we added another 20%. We really feel that we were cheated and that it is a dishonest policy not to inform people of the addition of a gratuity.
