There are many Thai restaurants in DC and a lot of them are good. Despite the competition, Beau Thai, in the Shaw neighborhood, is a special place because the food is deliciously simple and the price is right. It is one of my favorite places to introduce to friends and family. It was chosen as the Best Thai Restaurant in DC this year by the Washington City Paper.
Beau Thai offers lunch and dinner for different prices. Most lunch dishes are around $ 10 and dinner $ 12. You can get appetizers for $ 5, like the garden rolls with the most delicious peanut sauce. Don’t let the low prices fool you, the food is exceptional. I’ve ordered many different dishes and I’ve never been disappointed. My recommendations are Scott’s Favorite for those who want something mild and the red curry to warm up the cold days.
There are also many places to be enjoyed in Shaw before or after a meal at Beau Thai, such as Dacha Beer Garden, Compass Coffee and La Colombe. Beau Thai also has a second restaurant in Mount Pleasant.
