Due to past experience with Thai food not being vegan friendly (there is fish sauce in everything), I was reluctant to try Thai; however, the Yelp reviews were good and the menu looked as if it had potential to please my palate. My colleague and I traveled from Elk River and passed by many other Thai restaurants to get here so our expectations were high. Below is the account of our findings:
Parking is hideous...if parking can actually be hideous. If not, then it was terrible. The restaurant is in a shopping center shared by a grocery store. The parking lot, however, is extremely small and really can't account for the grocery store and the restaurant. We ended up driving around the parking lot and parking in a grocery store spot sitting halfway up a snow embankment. If it had been colder, I would have been more upset.
The restaurant was pretty full so it was either wait 20 minutes or sit at the bar. We were too hungry to wait so we sat at the bar. The waiter/bartender was great. I told him I was vegan and he pointed out numerous items on the menu that they could modify to meet my drastic demands. I decided to have the Jungle Fantasy...I think this was the name of the dish, although it sounds like a porn film.
The meal arrived fairly promptly. The portions were huge for the price you pay so this was great. I was completed surprised that my colleague order a seafood dish, and that I was not appalled by the fishy scent. My dish was packed with vegetables Normally, I can smell fish, mollusks, calamari, etc a mile away. My colleague had all 3 and I didn't notice the smell. I believe this means that the seafood was completely fresh, or it was not real, but she said it was wonderful so it must have been real.
The bartender/server was extremely friendly and helpful which assisted with the experience. I would certainly go back to have a fine Thai dish with enough food for leftovers. My colleagues food was also delusions she said.
So if you like/love Thai go to ECO ofs.
