My mom and I went to this restaurant for dinner before a show at the Guthrie. For a Thursday evening, it took quite a while for our server to greet us and bring water. The tea was lukewarm. We tried the steamed dumplings (okay) and Shrimp Pad Thai. The portion was generous, but lacking in flavor. For comparison, Big Bowl... More

This is basically generic Thai adjusted for bland Minnesota palates. I miss the randy spices and heat of real Thai cookery.

I went there with my family and the food was very bland, the service slow and the place really had nothing to offer - very disappointing!

My group of 5 went to this restaurant on a Saturday evening, and we loved the atmosphere. It was lively and colorful, and had a lot to look at while you waited for the food. We waited around 40 minutes for our meal, which consisted of three entrees. We truly enjoyed the food, but the wait was very long, and... More

I had a great Thai meal at Kindee Thai the previous day. I decided to try this place and I really regret it. On a Sunday afternoon it was deserted, we were the only table. Ordered Panang Curry with vegetable. When the dish came we thought it was a mistake. There was coconut milk sprinkled on the top of the... More

Been to better thai places but was asked by co workers to tey this and I had thai fried rice with chicken with a 4 out of 5 spice. I would say it's ok. Probably won't go back. Just used to better quality thai food I guess. Definitely not bad food.

Staying at the Residence Inn at the depot so this restaurant is close to the hotel. Thought the Pad Thai was excellent. Large portions and delicious food.

We stopped there for lunch on Sunday with our friends. After we read reviews on trip advisor we decided to opt for appetizers only. We loved calamaris! The spring rolls were good as well. The place is a little gloomy inside with old squeaky floors and old building smell. Dinner there might make more sense there ambience wise.
