Delicious green curry with chicken.I've driven by this place many times on my to and from Monarch Ski Area, glad I stopped this time. Prices seem high ($13) for the area, but the food was so good it made up for it.

Good food, good service; we had red curry, green curry, and seafood basil; all were good. Small, local restaurant, casual, clean.

This food is every bit as good as any of the Thai food I have eaten in Thailand. The people are friendly and the place is clean. If you like Thai food I highly recommend The Thai Mini Cafe.

Road trips through Colorado often take us through Poncha Springs and we are happy to be able to eat good food that is reasonably priced. Tea was served to us immediately upon arrival (free of charge) and the Thai plates are fairly priced with nice-sized...More

While I can't speak to the American good they serve I can say that the Thai food is excellent. Perfect spice level, very fast service, friendly staff, and perfect stop on your way to Denver from the Southwest. We'll stop again.
