A perfect little neighborhood eatery- excellent curries, interesting apps. We started with egg rolls- how prosaic!- and they were crisp, tasty and hot. Our curry (which we shared) was a well-seasoned red sauce; we ordered a side of veggies that was also delicious. The place...More

The food is the good and there are plates you cannot find i other Thai restaurant in Minneapolis. But the serving size is so small. Only three wontons in the wonton plate and three pieces of chitcken in the curry

The thing I like about Sen Yai Sen Lek beyond the nice folks that work there is that they seem to have different offerings than most Thai places. Check them out, you won't regret it.

Great Thai food, never has dissapointed me with the flavors. Staff is familiar with the menu and is good at making recommendations based of your tastes. Small bar but good selection of beer and wine.

Went there for late lunch based on a local's recommendation. Had wonderful Thai curry with basmati rice. They have a good selection and most come with your choice of meat. Also have a vegetarian dishes. Reasonable price, great food, fast service.

We went here in a recommendation from a friend. 3 of us had different meals which were all wonderful. Service was top notch. Most dishes around 11 to 16 dollars with a good size serving. We all left full and will definitely be back

According to their website they are closed on Sundays. I would email or call them as they seem eager to host parties.
