I've enjoyed numerous excellent vegan lunches with fast service at under $10. Everything I've tried has been excellent and I really appreciate that vegans can have a choice of tofu or mock duck. I wish they had brown rice and that they would reduce how sweet many of the dishes are. They say they can't change how sweet they are... More

We travel from Wisconsin to go to this restaurant - it is THE best authentic Thai food you will get in the Twin Cities and the staff are just great as well!

We stopped at this new Thai restaurant for the first time for a to go order. We got vegetable massaman curry, Penang curry with chicken and spring rolls to split. We both love spicy food, so ordered it extra hot. It sure was! And that is a compliment, a lot of places won't give you really good spicy food in... More

I ordered the Tom Yum soup and spring rolls. I loved the soup and the spring rolls had avocado, mango and shrimp which I found to be a really nice recipe. The peanut sauce for the spring rolls was simply delicious. The appearance of the restaurant is not top notch, but its perfect for those looking for decent thai food... More

Brought the family here because we love Thai. If terrible service and a Filthy restaurant don't bother you then this is the place for you. The menus were so full of food we had to wash our hands. There was sauce on the seat that ruined my wife's pants. We lost count of the number of dead flies in the... More

Simply the best Thai food i've ever had. I have become an ardent fan of Thai food after trying it here. Basil fried rice and red curry are ou tof the world. Must try if you are visiting twin cities.

I haven't eaten a lot of Thai food, but the beef vegetable I had was delicious. I opted for no spice, but the person I was with had the curry chicken which had a bit of a kick. They both were generous portions and I did take some home. The restaurant itself could use a bit more spiffing up, but... More

As I was searching for a place to enjoy some Asian food this restaurant popped up online with strong reviews. So I set my GPS to go try it. As I got into the neighborhood I felt kind of wary like maybe the clientele was a little gangsta... It's a small white building with blue and yellow trim situated next... More

The Thai food here is awesome. The food is priced to be affordable. The lunch specials is the way to go. The service is 4 out of 5, and the obedience is 3 out of 4. Sort of a dive. But well worth flavor for the food.

Thank Tina P
