Though soy sauce is commonly believed to be of Asian origin, several linguists have unearthed its true Iberian beginnings by decoding the hidden Spanish translation. Celebrate the intriguing international condiment with the help of today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thai cuisine at Cee Fine Thai Dining in Fairfax.
After settling into a seat in the bright interior or the even brighter outdoor patio, shade your eyes with the wide-ranging menu. Start off with an order of veggie-stuffed, deep-fried Cee’s crispy rolls ($6) or the coconut shrimp ($10) in a tangy dipping sauce. Once your stomach is sufficiently padded, dive into one of Cee’s rice or noodle dishes, including the spicy fried rice with shrimp, scallops, and squid ($12 for lunch, $14 at dinner). Meat-free feasters can hang a fang on earthy selections from the vegetarian menu, such as the tofu with basil ($9 or $11) or spicy eggplant ($9 or $11) in a black-bean sauce. For dessert, flip a coin where heads is you pick and tails is your tablemate doesn’t get to pick, and then order up some fried banana and ice cream in syrup ($5.50).
Elegant décor, friendly wait staff, and an outdoor patio make Cee a step up from the standard noodle shop. The crisp white tablecloths lend a regal touch to a space well suited for a business lunch, a rice-eating contest, or a romantic dinner for migrating lovebirds. Visit the restaurant for lunch or dinner to become surrounded in classic Thai cuisine, which is surrounded by a familial staff, which is surrounded by an authentic atmosphere, which is surrounded by walls.
This deal is valid for dine-in only.

Cee Fine Thai Dining
At Cee Fine Thai Dining, chefs assemble stunningly arranged plates of authentic Thai fare, separating meals and sauces for an interactive dining experience, or arranging disparate components in an artful stack to create a new twist on a familiar dish. This culinary runway show honors Thailand's cooking traditions at every turn, earning kudos from the Washington Post for serving "food that tastes as good as it looks." Flavors such as sweet yellow pineapple complement the spicy red sauce of a roasted-duck curry, and tableside clay pots throw aromatic steam diners’ way to announce a mélange of shrimp, mussels, and rice. Whether enjoyed on the patio or amid the dining room's ripe orange walls, luscious desserts including key-lime pie conclude meals on a tropical note. The restaurant also hosts live music, wine tastings, and cooking classes, helping diners liberate inner chefs and pent-up running men.
