The Zagat Review
Cognoscenti swear that chef-owner Johnny Monis has “absolutely nailed” Northern Thailand’s “hotter-than-heck” night-stall cuisine at this semi-“secret” Dupont Circle basement; fans use “every superlative in the book” to describe the multicourse prix fixe meals, the “passionate” staff, the “value” and even the “cool”, no-frills setting, though the no-reservations policy is another story.
What To Order
If the spice level becomes too much to bear, ask for a glass of icy rice milk to cool things down.
