Pasara Thai closing after 10 Years on Connecticut

1219 Connecticut Ave, NW

Ed. Note: We spoke about our favorite Thai restaurants on Friday here.

Pasara‘s last day in DC will be January 21st:


“For over a decade, Pasara Thai restaurant has served the freshest, flavorful and healthy Thai food in the VA/DC area. As a family owned and operated restaurant, Pasara Thai began in Alexandria Virginia. Expanding now to 4 different locations, each place has its own unique atmosphere and decor but the same authentic Thai food. Owner and Executive Chef, Pasara, created a menu to offer the finest Thai dishes outside of Bangkok by fusing her culinary instincts with recipes from the streets of Thailand.

Using the freshest ingredients and high quality vegetable oil. One of the keys to the preparation of our wonderful food is the use of fresh herbs and spices such as lemon grass, basil, mint, galanga, cilantro and kaffir lime leaves. From mild to hot, vegetarian or not, the diverse and flavorful menu has something for everyone.

Catering with the smiles and hospitality that Thailand is known for, the service is always efficient and the experience is surprisingly inexpensive. The atmosphere is as delightful as the menu while dining among classical and traditional hand crafted Thai decor. Besides delighting the discerning palate, Pasara offers a seasonal menu that is updated monthly as the kitchen takes pride in its sophisticated presentation.

​The goal of Pasara Thai is to serve our patrons the best authentic Thai food. By adding several modern riffs on the typical Thai dishes, we offer you an escape from the typical Thai restaurant menus. In the end the focus is always presenting quality Thai food. Our cuisine emphasizes the balance of each ingredient’s flavor, texture and seasoning. We are confident that you will enjoy the dedication and care in which we prepare each entree.”
