Former Jasmine Cafe

An established Lake Anne restaurant will move into the space at Lake Anne Plaza that housed Jasmine Cafe for more than 20 years.

Singh Thai, currently located at 11424 Washington Plaza, hopes to open Feb. 1 at 1633 Washington Plaza, said co-owner Chai Lerlertkitsakun.

“The space there is a lot bigger,” he said. “The layout is good and we will have good visibility in that space.”

Singh Thai has been in its current spot for nearly five years.

Jasmine Cafe had been a mainstay of Lake Anne since the 1980s. It abruptly closed last April when restaurant owner Eduardo Faubert got into a dispute with the property owner over back rent.

Lerlertkitsakun says he will spend the next few months renovating the former Jasmine space. He will also retain Jasmine’s outdoor seating.

  • Awesome. I actually thought Singh Thai closed, too. Gotta go back there.

    Wonderful news! Singh Thai is a fine restaurant whose owner is a top notch cook and a fine gentleman. We miss Eduardo but are delighted that Tchai will be getting the space he needs to expand!
    Some sorely needed good news for Lake Anne!

    Love Singh Thai, this is a much better location. I wish you much success there and will definitely visit when you re-open in the new spot!

    Ironically, wasn’t that the location of Mana’s Thai restaurant, the first in Reston?

    Still miss Jasmine and looking at the empty spot all summer was so sad, this is good news!

    Hope they can get rid of the rats and roaches!

    Thank goodness. Lets all hope Mr, Faubert is recieving medical attention. And lets hope no more medical fears linger from his illness.
