We loved this place, the food is extremely authentic and has a rich flavor and texture it reminded me of when we were in Thailand. The food was that good. Cozy atmosphere and great service, i can’t wait to go back.

A perfect little neighborhood eatery- excellent curries, interesting apps. We started with egg rolls- how prosaic!- and they were crisp, tasty and hot. Our curry (which we shared) was a well-seasoned red sauce; we ordered a side of veggies that was also delicious. The place...More

The food is the good and there are plates you cannot find i other Thai restaurant in Minneapolis. But the serving size is so small. Only three wontons in the wonton plate and three pieces of chitcken in the curry

The thing I like about Sen Yai Sen Lek beyond the nice folks that work there is that they seem to have different offerings than most Thai places. Check them out, you won't regret it.

Great Thai food, never has dissapointed me with the flavors. Staff is familiar with the menu and is good at making recommendations based of your tastes. Small bar but good selection of beer and wine.

We've never had a bad meal here. They welcome our family- young, crazy kids and all- and manage to make it feel like both a nice night out for us grown ups AND a treat for the kids. We're fans of the noodle dishes, but...More

According to their website they are closed on Sundays. I would email or call them as they seem eager to host parties.
