Lovely, but pretty basic - Edit

Monday evening, the place was fairly quiet. Plenty of room and staff was very nice. They knew what dishes were vegan, which was great. Portions were pretty big for that price and I definitely didn't leave hungry. Overall a very charming place with nice staff and good food, but nothing too special.

Standard fare - Edit

This restaurant is off the main areas in DuPont Circle, so you likely wouldn't come across it unless you're looking. Because there are so many great choices around, this restaurant isn't top of my list.

It does have your classic veg dishes like pad Thai and tofu stir fry, but it's nothing extraordinary. Curry and various vegetable/tofu stir fry dishes are available, but it's a lot of tofu and not much thought. You can also order your own bowl of noodle soup, but that's not that exciting of a meal, if you ask me. The papaya salad, mango with sticky rice and spring rolls will probably be better accompaniments to your meal.

The amount of food is generous but not impossible to finish in one sitting. The best part is probably the price- a little lower than most other restaurants around here.

Pros: Mango sticky rice

Cons: Older establishment

Great Meal! - Edit

This was one of our best meals during our week in DC. Yes, the menu items are pretty standards for a Thai restaurant, but they do everything well. Lots of vegetarian options. Just ask and you can veganize most dishes. Outstanding service. Very friendly and efficient staff.

Nothing out of the ordinary - Edit

It was Monday night, Cafe Green was closed and I didn't want to spend hours at a restaurant because I was by myself. I found this place through vegdc.com and decided to chek it ou because of their separate veg menu. The fod was alright. I ordered a soup with rice noodles and vegetables and that iis what I got. I then rdered fresh rolls, which were not originally veg, but the waitress asked the chef to not use shrimp and everything was fine. All in all it was a pleasant experience, but nothing out of the ordinary. Cheap.

Pros: Service, Location

Cons: Bland
