For some great authentic Thai food in this area, this place is a good option. Start off with a cold Singha beer; for an appetizer, try pan-fried cashews with chili or a delightful crispy catfish with lemongrass, chili and mint. Entrees include Thai traditions such as Chicken Bhram in peanut sauce and Peppercorn Beef. The latter is sure to please patrons who like to turn the heat up. The South Sea Curry is full of fresh seafood and infused with Thai basil.
I was so amazed at how wonderful the food tasted, and how inexpensive the bill was! I had a beautiful tofu, Japanese eggplant, spicy green basil curry (called Farmer's Curry) and it was $7! My husband had a lunch combo with spicy pork and a veggie spring roll for just $9! The atmosphere is like DC's Chinatown with it's 4-top tables and bustling atmosphere, without the DC traffic to contend with. The food and restaurant ambiance are very authentic! I'll definitely visit this place again!
I've eaten at almost every Thai place in the DC metro area trying to find the perfect Thai... I found it. It's Rabieng. Nobody else even comes close. Everyone I take here raves about it. This place puts every other Thai place to shame which is amusing when you consider the same folks own Dungrats aka Dung Rats.
My Girlfriend and I go here at least once a month, and I am always shocked at how low the check is when we get the bill. Food is as good or better than any thai place we've been and very inexpensive. It's kind of a hole in the wall but very cozy. We feel like it is our little hidden secret, give these guys a try.
I go to eat at rabieng at least once a week because the food is so good. Everytime i order i know that im going to get soemthing i like. The prices are all decent and the service is great. I suggest the sausage salad, basil calamari, and drunkard noodles are all great.
