I continue with my quest for finding great Thai in DC. To be honest, so far, it’s been a bleak with a few bright beacons. Anyway, I finally tried Thai Kingdom (menu is on their Web site).
- Food: Surprise, I ordered Pad Thai (no peanuts and medium spice). I also ordered the squid salad. I think I’m going to stop ordering squid salad at Thai places because it seems that all squid salads use cardamon. While their salad was totally different from Pasara, I think I liked Pasara’s better. The Pad Thai had a lot more veggies included than I’m used to and I liked it. There was a good amount of heat and flavor. There was more grease than I like to see in my Pad Thai, but I did like it.
- Service: I ordered to go, but I do applaud them for including chopsticks!
- Atmosphere: Inside there’s a lot of decoration. When you walk in, on your right is an elevated (only by a foot or so) platform with a wall that’s all window so it makes the restaurant seem much bigger. There’s about 10-15 tables. Then on the main floor, there’s another 20-25 tables so it is a big restaurant.
- Attire: Casual
- Price: $$
- Overall: If you’re looking for a casual and comfortable dining atmosphere, I’d check it out. It’s decent Thai at a good price.
