Little Serow – 1511 17th Street NW
“Owned by Johnny Monis of Komi, this northeastern Thai outpost packs some serious spice. Located on 17th Street down a few stairs with no sign, Little Serow offers a very low-key experience with incredibly authentic cuisine. The menu is posted on its website each week, and it consists of about six courses made with ingredients such as pork, catfish, shrimp, and more. No substitutions, just enjoy the dishes as they roll out. Be prepared to wait an hour or two, but you can put your name on the list and the staff will text you when your table is ready.” –Jenna
Beau Thai – 1700 New Jersey Ave NW
“Located in Shaw at the corner of New Jersey Avenue and R Street Northwest, Beau Thai is in the center of a largely residential area and removed from the heart of the district’s restaurant scene. But despite being a bit out of the way from some areas, the quality of food being served at affordable prices makes it an absolute must-visit, even in a city teeming with Thai restaurants.” –Evan
Thai X-ing – 515 Florida Ave NW
“Perhaps one of the most unique Thai restaurants in Washington, Thai X-ing is set inside the owner’s home. Chef Taw serves a different menu every day of the week including a vegetarian option, fish option, and an option with meat and vegetables. For a flat fee of $30-$40 per person, you will indulge in a delicious meal with very generous portion sizes, and you’ll enjoy dishes like pumpkin curry and whole fish.” –Jenna
Thai Square – 3217 Columbia Pike
“Thai Square is a quaint little eatery that attracts as many Thai customers as the farang, non-Thai… With the really modest prices and wonderfully authentic skillful cooking, there are no excuses not to make the journey, wait in line, and fill the senses with satisfying Thai flavors found in the long listed menu. You’ll know what I mean when you make it there one day.” –Alex
