Thai Old Town boasts a choice corner location in the heart of Old Town, right across from City Hall. Its bright dining room, agreeably formal but having no dress code, attracts tourists and locals alike. Powerful smells from its kitchen -- sweet mother of ginger meets the Potomac River at low tide -- greet you at the door, promising authentic Thai. The menu delivers.
In evidence are all the standards, from tom yum (a hot-sour lemon grass soup) to som tum (a green papaya salad) to satay (skewered chicken with peanut sauce) to pad thai (sauteed noodles with shrimp or chicken). A good half of the menu is marked "hot and spicy on request." Insider tip: Do request.
