Burapa Thai Opens in Clarendon

Clarendon has a new Thai restaurant.

Burapa Thai opened its doors on Monday. Located next to Circa at 1210 North Garfield Street, the restaurant serves Thai classics like Pad Thai and Kaprow, in addition to some signature dishes like the crispy Burapa Noodle in spicy chili gravy.

The restaurant also has a sushi bar near the back, allowing it to serve fresh sushi and hybrid dishes like the bento box with spring roll and Pad Thai noodles.

The Panang Curry was particularly delicious when we stopped by last night. The Larb Gai, meanwhile, was excellent as a starter.

Burapa Thai is offering a limited-time $1 per piece sushi deal through March 15. Regular deals include a 50 percent off happy hour from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., half-price wine on Tuesdays and Thursday and kids (10 and under) eat free on Monday. There’s also a lunch special from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.: two dishes on one plate for $9 to $12.

The restaurant offers an order-by-fax carry-out option (fax: 703-294-4104) and free delivery with a minimum $20 order (phone: 703-294-4102). It’s open from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 11:30 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. Management eventually hopes to bring in a live DJ on Saturday nights to create a lounge-like atmosphere.

Burapa Thai is owned by Prat Uthes, who emigrated from Thailand 20 years ago. A born entrepreneur whose passion for cooking started when she was seven, Uthes also owns Burapa Thai restaurants in Lansdowne, Winchester and Ashburn.

Uthes worked her way through graduate school after arriving in the Washington area at age 20. When her first restaurant went belly-up in 1999, she worked to pay off her debts and then tried again. On her second attempt, Burapa Thai was born and enjoyed considerable success in Loudoun County. This is her first attempt to move in on Washington and its immediate suburbs.
