Sisters Thai Coming to Old Town North in May

A new Thai restaurant and bakery is coming to Old Town North.

Sisters Thai tells ALXnow that it plans to open its doors at 530 Montgomery Street by early May.

The Old Town location will be the fourth restaurant for Fairfax-based Mungkorn Thong Inc, joining locations in the City of Fairfax, the Mosaic District and Cabin John, Maryland. The company was founded in 2012 and also owns Magnolia Dessert Bar & Coffee in Vienna.

“It’s going to be homey, like our other locations, and we’re going to put a Magnolia bakery inside, too,” said Ticky Komol, the manager at the Mosaic District location at 2985 District Ave.

The restaurant will offer delivery and takeout, and also serve beer and wine. It will be located near the Gables North Old Town apartment complex, the Oak Steakhouse Alexandria and the Holiday Inn & Suites.

The varied menu includes appetizers like $6 steamed dumplings, plus four different kinds of fried rice, Thai street food dishes, and five curry dishes. House specialties include the Krispy Duck Ka Pow, while staples like Pad Thai and Drunken Noodles are also on the menu.

Sisters Thai has gotten some attention over the years for its home-like decor that resemble tea rooms. The Fairfax location in the heart of the city’s Old Town, for instance, is full of colorful art, mismatching chairs and all sorts of knick-knacks and conversation starters.
