At ThaiPhoonVA @ Pentagon Row, we specialize in making a great Thai experience for all our guests. At our restaurant, you’re more than a customer. You’re family. We want to make sure you are immersed in our culture, so we make it a point to have a great atmosphere and satiating food that will make you think you hopped a plane to the other side of the world.

One of our specialty salads is the Papaya Salad. If you’re feeling a little bogged down by all the extra holiday food you’ve consumed this season, have a lighter fare with this salad. The salad consists of freshly shredded green papaya. The juicy papaya is topped with cherry tomatoes fresh from the garden, delicate green beans, and crushed peanuts. As you may know, peanut is a very traditional flavor and part of Thai cuisine. Of course, the sweetness of the fruit and fresh tomatoes is cut with a house-made spicy lime dressing. This gives the dish a sweet and spicy flavor that we love in Asia. This dish is perfect as an appetizer to another savory dish on our menu. You will love the flavor combination of the fruit with the beans and the spicy lime dressing. Pair this salad with any of our robust and flavorful wines or one of our cocktails available on our extensive drink menu.
