Nava Thai in Wheaton, MD

chew Nov 17, 2008 05:50 AM

Just wanted to let all the other Nava Thai fans know - I went there this weekend and the rumors are true.

Their lease expires at the end of this month (November 2008) and their landlord is NOT renewing it (I believe it is going to turn into a Pho restaurant). The Nava owners are searching for a new location but do not yet have one (though Rockville and Bethesda were mentioned as possible locations).

If you are a Nava fan - better go there before the end of the month and get your fix. Oh and don't forget to sign up for their email-mailing list so you can get updates.

As for Wheaton - there will always be Ruan Thai :-)

    Thanks for posting this. Sad news indeed. I so hope they stay in the area. We've never cared for Ruan Thai.

      Terrible news. The last two times I went, there was a 15-minute wait, so the word is out. Hopefully, they will relocate.

      I see there are two new Asian (I'm not sure what kind) restaurants coming to that area; one in the old bicycle store on University Blvd., and the other across the street in Barnaby's old spot.

        We went for a last supper last night. The server told us that they were down to two spots to pick from: College Park or Bethesda. In either case reopening won't be soon. He said October 2009. Here's the website for updates: http://navathai.food.officelive.com
