I came here for lunch with my son on a weekday around 12:15. The restaurant was in no way full but it still took time to be seated as no one came the host station to seat us. When we were seated it took almost 10 minutes to see our server. We ordered a Green Curry, egg rolls and Pad... More

The food was ok, not the best Thai I've ever had. The service was unbelievable bad. We waited forever for everything, from being seated, having our order taken, getting glasses of water, for gosh sakes (with a little tiny bit of ice). The list goes on. Tip if you're determined to eat here - there are a large number of... More

This family-owned restaurant has a wide menu of traditional, made-from-scratcl dishes, service is first-rate, and they provide off-street parking. Located on University Ave, a short walk from Snelling Ave., it's only a few steps from the the light rail. Besides a large number of vegetarian dishes they have many gluten-free options. Recommendations: Stir-fried broccoli and oyster sauce (try it with... More

I know my review will not mirror some others comments, but my group was less than impressed. The food was a little bland, and so was the service. Perhaps we caught them on a bad day. I think that some better service might have overcome some of the issues, however, there were other issues. As example, the dining room could... More

We went to Thailand last summer and were spoiled by their fabulous food. This is a VERY close second. Their Pad Thai is a staple and is delicious. We also enjoy the green curry and mango chicken. Their service is sub-par, but the food really makes up for it. Highly recommend.

Been her several times. A little understaffed during rush times but worth the wait. Ingredients are fresh & did is served hot. Flavors are interesting & pleasant. Not just mouth numbing spicy. Nice variety on menu & prices are reasonable for the good sized portions. Atmosphere is not exciting our modern but clean. There is some parking out back which... More

If you are a big fan of Asian food and that too hot & spicy Thai curries this is a place for you. However, you have to mention "Thai Hot" :) when ordering real hot food. Almost everything on their menu is a perfect food and their kitchen is open, so you can anytime see how they are making your... More

This place was formerly a hidden gem. It's not hidden anymore, with packed tables and folks waiting for a table during lunch and dinner hours. Had an amazing lunch with family here. Maybe 20 minutes to get a table and another 45 to get food, but it was worth the wait. Their food is fresh and features and amazing array... More

Usually order the pineapple curry with tofu am always very very happy. The fried tofu with peanut sauce appetizer is a favorite as well. Tofu is always cooked perfect. Certainly my favorite Thai restaurant in the Cities. My only complaint is since the food is very good they get so busy they can't answer my constant calls for take out... More

I've eaten at On's many times. When she went to Thailand on vacation recently and closed her restaurant, I tried just about every other Thai restaurant in the area trying to feed my craving. After hundreds of dollars of disappointment, I decided to just wait till On got back. Her Haw-mak (tilapia in a banana leaf) is one of the... More
