I've been obsessed with Thai food lately so the highlight of my weekend going to one of the most popular Thai restaurants in the DC/NoVA area - Sisters Thai in Fairfax, VA. The restaurant itself is gorgeous; as a "living room cafe" the atmosphere is homey, intimate, and serene. It's vintage chic done right with an abundance of floral pillows, bouquets of fresh flowers, beautiful photographs, and quirky collectibles. It really does feel like you're eating in someone's living room!
The customer service was quite good too. The servers and hostess were very nice; all young and eager to please. There was a birthday going one while we were there and they played Happy Birthday over the speakers and brought over a cake :) I was also impressed by how clean and organized everything was; there was none of that "sweeping crumbs off the table onto the ground" nonsense. Another lovely touch: the menus were all handmade with a bunch of blank pages for customers to leave notes on. Mine was missing a pen, but it was still fun flipping through and looking at what other people wrote!
Garden RollsThese were quite tasty - they look rather plain but there's some kind of 'spicy' green they add that gives it an excellent aftertaste! The peanut sauce was also more liquid-y than I expected and more like a sweet-and-sour sauce delicately infused with peanuts. Also it came with 4 rolls, I'd eaten two of them already ^_^
Drunken NoodlesI asked for "slightly less spicy" but it still made me nose and ears tingle a little ^_^ It was pretty good though, the wide flat noodles were perfectly cooked and the cherry tomatoes were delicious! I didn't eat any of the peppers though, too spicy!
Thai Custard with Coconut Sticky RiceI ADORE sticky rice so of course I had to get dessert! The Thai custard bit is basically a cake infused with Thai coffee (I think). It's served warm and it pairs quite well with the coconut rice, which is basically sticky rice drizzled with coconut milk. However, even though this dish was very good, I prefer The Similans Thai Eatery's sticky rice. Their sticky rice and coconut ice cream are the stuff my dreams are made of *drool* ^^
It's easy to see why Sisters Thai is rated the best Thai restaurant in the area. The atmosphere, the food, and service is excellent! Though their sticky rice is a hair less tasty than The Similans, their entree dish was superior. The Old Town Fairfax location is great too, it's a beautiful place to walk around after you eat. Overall, this place definitely had the best Thai food I've eaten so far and if you're in the area, you should definitely check this place out!
