Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, or, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of authentic Thai cuisine at Burapa Thai in Arlington and Leesburg.

Pushing their way through a controlled cloud of cardamom, curry powder, garlic, ginger, pepper, and other fresh spices and ingredients, diners at Burapa Thai discover a colorful combo of tasty Thai flavors. The Arlington menu and Leesburg menu are each packed with noodles, seafood, soups, curries, spicy meats, and more. Because Japan won it in a euchre game, the Arlington branch also offers a selection of Japanese fare.

Eaters can rev their taste engines to full throttle by sampling winter shrimp bundled up in a comfy spring-roll wrap and fried crispy for warmth ($6.95), or by gobbling fried calamari with a contradictory sweet and sour sauce ($7). Burapa Thai's lineup of cocktails ($5.95–$7.50), beers ($3.50–$6), and wines ($5.50+/glass, $20.99+/bottle) wind their way through the menu, complimenting each dish on their exquisite taste and fashion sense. Lava catfish swims happily into your mouth along with red chili paste and leaves of lime and basil ($15), and the crying tiger, a dish of marinated beef and sobbing steamed veggies ($13.95), can only be consoled by a quick consumption. Burapa Thai's selection of curries include the wild curry with chicken, beef, or pork in a red curry sauce ($10.50+), as well as a savory chunk of duck in red coconut curry, tomatoes, grape, and basil leaves ($12.95+). After devouring the spices of life, diners can cool their tingling taste buds by noshing on mango ice cream ($5) or licking a nearby glacier.

The chefs at the Arlington location are also well-versed in the art of sushi and teriyaki. Diners can stock their mouths with one of 12 rolls, such as the dragon roll, which is shrimp tempura wrapped with eel, masago, and avacado ($12). Seven separate grilled teriyaki options are available ($14–$18), and apps such as baked mussel ($6) and miso soup ($2) anxiously await dates with your tongue. Eighteen nigiri-sushi options feature an ocean of choices, from the octopus ($5) to the red snapper ($5), sea eel ($6), crab ($5), and the flying-fish roe ($5.50).

Prices may vary by location.

Reviews

Gayot reviewed Burapa Thai's Leesburg location and fourteen Yelpers give that same location a 3.5-star average:

  • The second location in the Burapa restaurant family is darkly romantic with an extensive menu – Gayot
  • the quality of the food here is great, the combo option is unique and amazing, and the decor of the restaurant is clean and inviting. – Nick H., Yelp, 11/29/10

Burapa Thai

At Burapa Thai's two locations in Arlington and Leesburg, the dishes on the menu tantalize with a fragrant cocktail of spices. The aromas of marinated beef mingle with those of honey, Thai herbs, and garlic, and crispy duck crackles sharply beneath sauce and basil leaves. Waiters pass through the dining room toting plates that highlight seafood and shrimp as well as lard na, a type of wide rice noodle. With steam from curries melding coconut, shrimp, and eggplant, chefs behind Burapa's sushi bar roll up eel and salmon held together by seaweed like Robinson Crusoe’s flat-screen TV. Amid the Arlington location’s booths, abstract tile work, and rich wood paneling, guests admire fresh-cut flowers.
