The calls on Thai Square and Ruan Thai make sense. I won't mention what's really the best lest it get even harder to snag a spot, but the top spot to Little Serow is downright silly. It's at best reflective of northern Thai food, but at an exhorbitant price. Authentic in its spiciness? Sure, but that spiciness makes a lot more sense in Thailand, and the flavors here don't have nearly the soul as some other spots do. Monis should stick to what he knows best, but of course, the yuppies and hipsters will discourage that.
I don't understand what method this ranking uses. Whether it's the pure Zagat "Food" category score or the total of the "Food," "Decor" and "Service" categories, then Sabai Sabai Simply Thai in Germantown, MD should be ranked # 3 by Zagat's very own ratings (see https://plus.google.com/101524143036241378462/about). Please amend or append this list to reflect that -- I'm a big fan of the rare yummy restaurant in Germantown and that great little Thai joint deserves some credit! Thanks!
Ruan Thai deserves its' ranking for the consistently great food at affordable prices. The duck basil is incredible as is the stir fried eggplant. They have undergone a renovation that doubled the size of what was a very small dining room. The best deal is the lunch special menu, cheap and delicious with numerous choices. Parking is very limited and you may have to park in a closely watched metered space across the street a ways. This place is very much like the shophouse cafes found everywhere in Bangkok so if you want really authentic (not especially spicey or hot)Thai food, try Ruan Thai.
No Thai X-ing? Massive oversight.
