    We decided to try this place last Friday night. It was pretty tasty.

    We ordered the tom kai gai with salmon, pad thai with beef, and spinach with black bean sauce. The soup was good, although not as rich as I am used to. The salmon was a nice change. The Pad Thai was great. The spinach was good, although the sauce wasn't very thick. The food wasn't oily at all (my biggest pet peeve at Thai restaurants), but the flavors were there. I am not sure if I would travel far and wide to eat here, but it's a good addition to the neighborhood.

      I ate there in the first few weeks it was open. I had green papaya salad and drunken noodles. The food was good, reminded me pretty much of Neisha-level quality (in Tenelytown). I also thought the portions were quite small for the price. But it definitely was pretty high quality.

        I believe its called Siam House. I had lunchthere last week andit was quite fresh, vibrant and good. The service was heartfelt. I like it but thought the portion sizes a touch small for the price. But I will be back.

            It's on Connecticut Avenue. Where Ivy's, the Indonesian restuarant, used to be. It is across the street from Palena and next door to the Firehouse.

              I paid $23 for 2 small appetizer salads Som Tum and Larb plus a Singha. About 4 more bites total and it wold have been a better value.

                  Their menu looks really good. And they deliver! I just checked out the distance on yahoo.maps and my apartment is exactly 2 miles from the restaurant...the limit of where they will deliver to.

                  Particular items that look good: Salmon Satay, Ped Pad Phed, and Poh Tak

                I ate there during their first week and it was not good. It's nice to hear that they've improved.

                What's it called? I didn't even know one is open (don't get over to Cleveland Park that often).

                Isn't there already like 2 Thai places in that area?

                  As long as Spices has "crazy hours" and delicious food, if there's a new place...good luck! hehe
