Tysons Thai/steak?

We're spending a weekend in Tysons next month, and I'd appreciate some restaurant tips.

1. The Tysons area has sprouted a bouquet of steakhouses - branches of Sam & Harry's, the Palm, and Morton's, plus a new one at the Tysons Marriott (where we're staying) named after Don Shula. Any preference for one over the others? And would casual attire be acceptable at any of them? (yeah, I didn't think so...)

2. Any recommendation for a Thai restaurant? We've been to the Walnut Avenue branch of Tara Thai (soft-shell crab special was quite good), but I'd prefer something less noisy and cramped. The ideal place would have both intriguing specials (for me) and an excellent version of pad thai (my fiance is not noted for his adventurous palate).
