Nava Thai Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Loads of Thai restaurants beckon, but only a handful really capture the essence of Thai cooking. Nava Thai is one such place. It’s a low-key eatery where all dishes are cooked to order. Every dish brims with authentic flavor, even if some of those tastes are rather exotic, like the yen ta fo, or preserved tofu with pickled squid and fish balls. Yet the diverse menu offers a serious look into the wonderful Thai kitchen, from the crispy mussels with bean sprouts to the twice-cooked duck salad, mussel hot pot, hot-and-sour squid salad, and the sturdy country curry, not meant for the faint of heart. Even if you live deep in the Virginia countryside, make sure this is on your must-visit list of restaurants.
