    I've always liked Basil Thai up Wisconsin a bit, I think it's at Q. I've been to Bangkok Bistro too, it's probably a nicer atmosphere, but strictly on food, I prefer Basil Thai.

      Busara in "Upper" Georgetown, aka Glover Park, very nice, not too expensive, very good pad thai, particularly nice place as the weather gets warmer when they open up the garden in the back.

        Most of the dinner entrees at Bangkok Bistro in Georgetown will fit your budget. They are very good--one of my favorites restaurants when I worked in the neighborhood.

          I second Bangkok. Many happy memories of the fried rice served in a pineapple.

          Regent Thai is the closest Thai restaurant you'll find in Adams Morgan....but its delicious and the staff is friendly so I highly suggest it. Also the drinks are great!!!

            ...but it's not really in the $10/entree end, right? It's been a while since I've been there.

            for a little less expensive, just walk a little further down U Street to Simply Home. I've never been disappointed and I used to frequent them for take-out when I lived nearby.

              Honestly I can't remember. It's been a long time since I've been there as well. But I do know that I went with a large group...about 10-12 people or so...and some of them can be rather cheap lol...so I imagine entrees weren't much over $15-20.

                It's in the 15ish range for the less expensive entrees. I can't think of anything worth eating in Georgetown that's filling in the 10 dollar per entree level- I can, however, once you move a little closer to DuPont.
