    Getting in can be a challenge — but the payoff is worth the wait. The chef prepares fiery, authentic Thai cuisine, at $45 per person for a multi-course, ever-changing menu. [Eater 38 Member]

    Come with an open palate; the seven-course, family-style menu does not allow for any changes. Then brace yourself for a joyride as fresh lime juice & lemongrass mix with dried chiles, peanuts & mint. Read more

    Perhaps my favorite meal in DC. Everything about this place is awesome. Almost uncomfortably spicy, but in the best/most affectionate way. House made vermouth is quite delicious as well.

    It's all fixed and served family-style. Each dish is delivered with perfect timing so as to cool your palette after a few spicy bites. I left reaching for my Tums, but a true fan. Read more

    Very very spicy, but very, very good. If you can't handle the spicy too well (like me), they have a sweet rice milk (condensed milk, sticky rice, vanilla). Don't be afraid to ask for it.

    Be ready to eat a lot of food. Family style shared plates. Menu changes every week and there are no substitutions, but it's so worth it. Try their ice cardamom coffee after your meal - delish!

    The spicy and sour food from the northeastern Issan region can include sausage with kaffir and basil, as well as pork rib with whiskey and garlic. Don't be afraid to get a little messy. Read more

    Bring someone to wait with you in line (preferably someone who loves spicy) and you're sure to have a great dining experience. The servers are super helpful and friendly, too.

    Pray that there’s laap on the menu (the spicy minced-meat salad is almost always there) and get ready to start downing that Singha. Read more

    Food was awesome!!! As were the drink pairings. I am enamored. My wife has already scheduled a return trip for next month. The chef is an artist, his/her food the kind you are instantly drawn to.

    The platter of Thai-style pork ribs marinated in a sugarcane-based Mekhong whiskey, caramelized and stacked with crisp shallots and dill is a highlight at the restaurant. Read more

    This underground, 28-seat restaurant specializes in the hot, sour and herby notes of northeastern Thailand, doesn't take reservations and offers only a seven-course, family-style menu.

    I love this place from the decor to the food. But, I'm pretty sure it lit my mouth on fire and it didn't stop. I'm glad they have milk on the menu.

    Skip the alcohol and get the rice milk. Perfect balance to the spicy dishes. Skip altogether if you are picky or have food allergies. Amazing experience for the adventurous.

    The food is awesome! But the best thing is the crew. Best place in Washington so far! Go easy with the courses because they almost never ends.
    Once inside, waitresses dressed in hipster vintage dresses provide a friendly yet firm explanation of how the night will work—no substitutions, no special requests. Read more

    Try one of the wines on ice for something new if you end up having to wait (they don't take reservations) at this intimate but amazing new thai restaurant!

    The menu changes almost weekly, but standouts have included pork rinds served with duck-liver dip and sausage flavored with lemongrass and kaffir-lime leaves.

    How long is the wait? If you’re standing in line when the doors open at 5 p.m. you’re likely to make the first seating. Too early? Sixty to 90 minutes during the week; up to three hours on weekends. Read more

    You won't leave hungry. It's spicy, so don't skip the Singha or an off dry white wine like Gewurtztraminer.
