    I went with a group of 6- none of us liked what we ordered. Maybe the kitchen had an off night- but I'd certainly never go back.

      They have good soups, and my all time fav dish which i get every time is tofu with cashew nuts. As far as Prince Georges County, it is indeed something special.

        I'm not a big tofu fan but I was intrigued by the Peppery Garlic with Beef. Has anyone had that?

        It's perfectly fine for Americanized Thai food, but nothing special.

          This restaurant is fantastic! Beautifully decorated inside, good service, reasonably priced and great consistent food. It's one of our counties best kept secrets.

            I guess you really want to keep it a secret since you're not saying WHERE on Rt. 193 it is. State? City? Neighborhood? Cross street? Web page? GPS coordinates?

                Never mind, I just read the history of the place. Apparently there have been several "Chef Secret" restaurants there over the years. All with some Thai influence, but all by different owners. The one that was there 20 years ago was very good, don't know about this one.

                  Oh, fooey! I was hoping it was in the Langley/McLean area, the other edge of the universe. Oh, well. Curious that their web site appears to be hosted by a server at Virginia Polytechnic Institute.
