Great tasting grub – I've heard people say that this may not be authentic blah blah blah. I've eaten at a lot of Pan-Asian restaurants and Doc Chey's is tasty. They flavor their food extremely well, and portions and prices are excellent especially given their Virginia-Highlands locale. Try it for yourself!
User review by glynn117 – We're new in the area and had heard good things about this restaurant. Big mistake, one of our worst Asian meals ever!
Great little place – The food is good, fresh and simple. The portions are generous to your stomach and wallet. The patio is great in the spring and fall. It can be a little loud at times but the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. The wait staff and hostess are apathetic at times but sometimes you luck out on their good day.
Great Noodles – Ok, so Doc Shey's may not be the most authetic Thai dining experience in town, but where you can eat good food for under $10 a person?! This place is adroable. They have a great patio area to sit on too.
Bravo – Ultra large portions that taste great on a student's budget. Leaves plenty of $ 4 U 2 tip the servers well :)
What's so great about this place? – I was stunned to learn that this place has made one of the top 10 Citysearch Vote. Not to mention, in Thai food category?!!??? C'mon guys, if anyone has ever had authentic Thai food before in his/her life, he/she would never go to this place and rank it as such. I couldn't care less if it was voted one of the best whatever food, but please, not Thai.
Good food, cheap prices! – I've been coming to Doc Chey's for years. I was quite disappointed when the franchise near me closed, so my husband and I ventured back to the Highlands to the original. Our meal did not disappoint. Doc Chey's is not gourmet food, but it has always been very good. We started with the edamame, our traditional appetizer. It was good, but the soybeans were a bit too soft. They were not as snappy as usual. I had the Chinese Lo Mein with steamed tofu, which was quite good. The sauce has always been one of my favorites. My husband had a tofu and rice dish that he enjoyed. The service was adequate for a casual dining restaurant, and drinks were always refilled promptly. We sat on the patio and enjoyed an usual cool July evening. The prices are still very low for the quantity of food served.
not authentic enough – We ordered noodles and chicken dishes, spring rolls. It appeared that the ingredients were dumped in sauce and heated for a minute because the taste of sauce was not integrated into the meat or vegetables. Also, the sauces taste like the ones that you get at a grocery store, which is why i feel that the food lacks authenticity.
Americanized noodle shop hits it big in Morningside with affordable, large portions. – The Scene
This popular neighborhood noodle shop makes a name for itself in the restaurant-heavy Highlands-Morningside area. Its menu of low-priced options appeals to the younger crowd who rents around here. Endearing in a slightly beat-up kind of way, Doc Chey's features a fun patio, plus functional community seating inside. Service is basic, sometimes friendly.
Ultra-cheap and just exotic enough, this noodle shop specializes in Americanized Asian food with familiar vegetables and meat. Starters, including crispy shrimp rolls, scallion pancakes and a dumbed-down Larb, are hit-and-miss. Noodles bowls at their best are gallon-sized slurpy fun, at least for the first five bites. But under-seasoned pho and an over-spiced Japanese udon are real downers. Still, Doc Chey's isn't trying to score points for authenticity--and at six bucks a plate, it's hard to be completely snobby.
An End to World Hunger – To the person who complained he couldn't taste the food, where did you lose your tongue? I am 70% taste impaired (no joke) and the main reason I learned to like Thai food was because I can register the taste of the spices in a way not possible with American food. I have stuck with Doc Cheys at least 85% of the time as my Thai restaurant of choice. Why? The food is always fresh, the seasoning is always balanced, and the portions are always a great value for your $$. And to the person who said he didn't get value for his $$, my only comment is: Where are you eating out? Everyone would love to know where you're getting a better value. I'll admit that The Tamarind is the BEST Thai restaurant in the city, but you'll be paying x3 the price there. Take your pick.
Great casual eating – No, not 5 stars, but not meant to be either. They opened a 2nd location last year - must be pretty good. I love the curry dishes, and the casual dining. Highly recommend it. (except for your snob friends).
