Thai Chef is in Dupont Circle, about 2 blocks from the metro. It's a great place to start a night out in Dupont. The food is wonderful. There's a great corn soup, and the Pad Thai is very tasty. The cocktail drinks are STRONG. There's a sushi bar downstairs, and you can either sit at the bar or get table service. The servers are very friendly and the service is always quick. It's a very good value for the quality and quantity of the food.
