We have eaten at many Thai restaurants when we used to live in NoVA/DC. Ratee Thai is just as good and authentic, if not better than most, and definitely the best in Richmond. Home-cooking taste and fresh ingredients. Our favorite is Belly Dancing, which is pork belly double-fried, then sauteed with basil, green beans, onions, peppers, and garlic in a sweet, spicy sauce. A must-have! You can't go wrong with Ratee Thai!
