I love their red curry and kabosha squash. I must have had it 20 times before I tried anything else. Just too good. Always good service with friendly staff and excellent food. Anna will take care of you!

Voted Best Thai in Minneapolis for a reason! The food is always good. Highly recommend eating there. The buffets are sort of limited to what they can do! Highly recommend ordering off the menu. Never had a bad plate in 10 visits!!!

I had heard that True Thai had the best Thai food in Minneapolis, and it's definitely true! This tucked-away place has wonderful Asian food. You may eat in, or take out for those busy nights.

Used to be a favorite. No more. Almost 2 hour wait for food to arrive and then the orders were wrong. Have they grown too big for the number of help or size of the kitchen? Out front staff were great. Everyone waited and waited,...More

Short story: We've been to this restaurant a LOT in the past 10 years. Tonight, we walked in the door at 6 p.m. and hadn't eaten by 8:15 p.m. when we walked out the door. Long story: We got to the restaurant at 6:00 and,...More
