The first time I experienced Charm Thai was during a study day at my cohort bestie’s house in Silver Spring. After hours of working, we decided to order in. She suggested Charm Thai. Who am I to deny Thai food?
That was also the first time that I had the pleasure of Charm Thai’s curry puffs. Unlike other Thai restaurants that I’ve been to, Charm Thai’s curry puffs are vegetarian(!) and immensely delicious. The accompanying sauce, which I believe is nuoc cham, is similarly spectacular.
If it seems like I’m being over generous with my descriptions, I assure you that they are warranted. As I write this, I am craving Charm Thai (and if I didn’t live so far away, Charm Thai would surely be what I have for lunch). In fact, I’m a little sad that I won’t be able to have Charm Thai for lunch.
Located in a cute brick building on Georgia Ave, Charm Thai played host to a recent date night. That was the first time I had ever been inside the restaurant. There isn’t a lot of seating – so probably not the best idea for a large group – but it wasn’t difficult to grab a table either. It seems like it’s the resident Thai carryout as to go orders were flying out of the kitchen all night. And, who can blame them? If I lived close enough to Charm Thai, I would order from them, too.
Whether you stop by in-person or are lucky enough to be able to order delivery, you have to get the curry puffs. If you’re around for lunch, the lunch specials are a steal. For under $12 you can select a generous portion of some of the most favorite Thai entrées, including pad thai, curry, pad see ew, drunken noodle, and several others.
