Tiny place that is immaculately cared for by Amina. The food is delicious and she makes us feel very looked after.

The proprietress, a short, urgently friendly, slightly comical and energetic woman wearing proper Muslim garb, greeted us at the door and guided us to our table. She then deftly took our orders ("Should I choose the Panang Curry or the Pad Kaprow?" I asked. "Oh, the Pad Kaprow!" she asserted without missing a beat. "Much healthier for you."). Everything we ordered was wonderful, but I especially loved the Yum Nua appetizer (incredibly tender thin slices of beef marinated in lime juice with red onions, scallions, cilantro, cucumbers and tomatoes). Everything is Halal; no alcohol, no pork. Several diners at other tables -- mostly families with children sharing a warm & relaxed dinner -- were clearly religious Muslims, but the overriding feelings of the place were of family and comfort. At the end of the meal, our hostess made sure to ask which of us was Dede (the one who had made our reservation for 5) and then thanked us all for coming. It was a deeply personal touch.

We decided to dine at Amina's place after hearing great reviews. Glad to tell that we were not disappointed at all! Amina takes great care in greeting her customers and making sure that they are fully satisfied with the food and services offered. We tried a variety of their appetizers and different savory curries.

Pros:
1. Halal food
2. Amina takes special attention of all customers.
3. Great tasting Thai food and service!
4. Decorative and pleasing ambiance.
5. Ample parking space.

Cons:
1. Seating space can become little tight at times.

The food here is prepared Halal. So there is a little different take on some of the dishes you may be used to ordering. Things were mostly fresh with no surprises. Good overall meal.

I went to Amina Thai for lunch today - A colleague had suggested the Kai Gua. When I got there and did not see it on the menu, they were able to accommodate my wish for it (it is a Chef's Special and apparently usually a dinner dish). It was really wonderful - just the right amount of flavor and a generous portion. The lunch specials, which I will return to try, include a drink and spring roll for $9.95 (in the DC area this is a pretty good deal). The owners are also the ones who wait on you and are really nice. I will definitely return and will recommend it to others.
