They do use a lot of Peanut oil, but peanuts aren't nuts. It's for pad thai; but i've seen it in other recipes, as well.

My absolute fav was Thai Palace in Chantilly Crossing shopping center. That place was so good... I wish I could find something similar now that I've moved. I think they recently doubled the size of the restaurant too.

I think Pho Bistro in Centreville was the best Pho for awhile until they raised the price 25%.
This place was packed every night and sometimes you had to wait 1 hour to get a seat and trust me, lots of people waited in line every night.
Now days, they raised the price so it is less crowded and the noodle they give is smaller portion than before for higher price.

As for Chinese buffet, I think Blue Pearl in Springfield has been pretty good. They also have soup section where you can do all you can eat noodle soup for less than one bowl of soup in Pho places in Northern Virginia.

Sorry, I forgot to mention about the Thai food.
If you want good Pad Thai without paying a lot.... GOTO Springfield Mall.
Inside the food court, they have one of the best Pad Thai for the money. No tip, cheap price, taste good and fast.

I heartily endorse AJ in Annandale & Tempt Asian in Landmark as 2 'authentic' Chinese restaurants.

Likewise for Pilin and Sakoontra for Thai.

For Pho, I personally prefer the Viet House chain (Alexandria off of Route 1 near Krispy Kreme, Annandale off of Main St(?) and Fairfax off of Route 29 couple of streets north/west of Borders (where 50 & 29 split).

Haven't had a good sushi in NoVa yet unfortunately.

For Thai food, I have to recommend Pi Lin in downtown Falls Church. I have had a lot of good Thai food in a lot of different cities, and Pi Lin is one of my favorites. A real hidden gem!!!
