Known For

Thai

Baan Thai dares to go where other DC Thai places don't, in terms of heat and tang. The concept, housed inside Tsunami Sushi, evolved out of staff meal where more authentic dishes were devoured by Thai employees. Leading the charge is a chef whose name is as awesome as her food: P’Boom. You need to try her crispy rice cakes with chicken and shrimp, chicken stuffed in tapioca skin, stir-fried pork picnic, and coconut griddle snacks for dessert.
