Born & raised in southern Thailand, Piya inherited the Thai focus on food - to Thais even being a little hungry is considered an emergency!
Piya travelled extensively in Thailand learning regional specialities as she went, before taking her skills to England, where she extended her repertoire to include the best of European cooking. Here she met her husband James, before they both moved to the USA in 2008, for what was supposed be just be a couple of years..

My 2nd visit, and everything was perfect. The restaurant is cozy and nicely decorated. Our waitress was attentive and friendly, and the pacing of the meal was good. The food was delicious, from appetizers to entrees and desserts. Everything tasted fresh, and presentation was good. There is ample parking behind the building.

This was a great find for a little out of the way Thai restaurant. The service was beyond excellent. The staff was friendly and attentive and left us wanting for nothing. The food was great, although the flavors were a little muted. I think the spice level has probably been adjusted for the local pallette. I am sure that you could request for things to be made more spicy. This is NOT a fast food place. All of the food is prepared freshly, so it may take a while to come out. We ordered the steamed dumplings (5 pieces), massaman curry with chicken, drunken noodles with chicken, mango sticky rice (shared between the two of us), and one Thai Iced Tea. The total bill was around $60 for the two of us. The portions were generous, without being oppressive. We will definitely return here for a funky little date night in the future!

Amazing to find a very good Thai restaurant in the small village of Lovettsville. Everyone was happy with their food, which ranged from spicy (larb gui) to medium (aubergine with pork) to mild (vegetable tempura).

My wife and I took a Friday night to go out for a nice dinner with our 8 year old son. The wait staff was great and the food very tasty. Great setting to actually have a conversation over dinner. The dinner plates may be a bit overpriced but were all freshly prepared to order and we left with a couple goodie bags to take home. We’ll continue to go back here regularly for a wonderful night out.

My wife and I came from Falls Church and enjoyed our experience at Thaiverse. The Pad Thai could have been a little spicer, and don't miss the dumplings! Great service. It isn't a fancy date night, but great prices for what you get.

My husband and I came here for dinner on a Saturday night. As usual, the service was excellent,
the atmosphere was rather quiet, and the food choices we made were so very good!! We have been to this restaurant and the one they have in Middleberg, both are incredibly good. The only
complaint was when we got home and looked closely at our bill (should have done there), we
noticed that we were charged for three cups of coffee. My husband had asked for a "refill" of his coffee but I did not. I am not sure if a "refill" is subject to a four dollar charge but we will
definitely ask next time. I am pretty sure it was an honest mistake by the waiter, who, by the
way, was excellent. We will be back to both locations. It was nice to see the beautiful renovation that was done -- nice job!!

We stumbled upon Thaiverse and had a great conversation with the owner, who helped us find the right dishes for us. We had recently traveled to Thailand, and she showed us what items would remind us of the places we had been. A great night, a good value, a delicious dinner.

A well decorated interior welcomes you as you enter this cozy gem of a restaurant in this small town. That the restaurant is here at all is a pleasant surprise. That the food is so good is, perhaps, less of a surprise since it is prepared by a Thai woman who is, I believe, not only the Chef but the owner along with her husband, an Englishman, who may greet you at the door.
The menu, while all Thai, is several pages long and includes a separate lunch section.
This was my second visit and the deliciousness of the food was consistent both times. Full flavored, wonderful aromas and beautiful colors (from not overcooking vegetables) on each plate. Almost every review I've read about Thaiverse has used the word authentic and I can see why! I highly recommend an appetizer, main course and dessert with a bottle of wine to accompany the entire meal. I was sorry only that the Thaiverse was out of Riesling, but the Extra Dry Prosecco, very slightly sweet, did a fine job filling in.
