    maybe trying to see what the demand would be for sushi? in order to compete against the upcoming nooshi restaurant opening down the street..

    I’m guessing those are the days when they don’t get as many customers– it’s probably expensive to have a sushi chef on hand every single day. On the less busy days they’re probably trying to attract people in the neighborhood (like me) who need a sushi fix every now and then. Until Nooshi opens we don’t have any other options. And even when Nooshi does open people might be inclined to go to Old Siam instead because it’s more centrally located.

    P.S. – I’ll be stopping in to try the sushi soon so I’ll let you know how it is! I can say the the Thai food is pretty good, and the drinks are very strong and very large for the price. :)

      Are you saying NooshiDC com is opening a second location in Eastern Market?

        I didn’t even realize there was a first Nooshi (shows you how much time I spend on K Street), but yes, it’s been in the works for a year or two now. Last I heard they plan to open mid-summer.

    Purging their freezers ahead of the weekend seafood delivery?

    I still don’t understand why Thai restaurants in Washington all feel compelled to serve sushi. Japan is not particularly close to Thailand, and their respective cuisines have nothing in common beyond a shared affection for rice. It’s weird. Might as well have burrito night on Friday, too.

      A lot of Thai restuarants are always owned by Chinese or Koreans.

      AMERICA! We don’t make sense!

      Same reason cuban, salvadorean, peruvian or any other latin american restaurant offers tex mex on their menu too. Playing the percentages.

      Same reason EVERY restaurant in America offers a grilled chicken caesar. Every idiot demands that they serve it.

    They can’t even get their Thai cuisine right and now they want to add in sushi?

      I think their Thai is decent. It’s a lot better than Sanphan, or the Thai dishes they serve at Asian Fusion (of course when are Thai dishes at fusion restaurants EVER good?).

    • For what it’s worth, Old Siam is one of the better Thai restaurants in town. If it doesn’t meet your standards, I suggest Duangrats in Falls Church.
