Two of us returned here after not visiting in several years. We concluded that at least for us, Pad Thai serves the best, or among the very best, Thai food in St. Paul. We had egg rolls that were terrific. Crunchy, flavorful. Excellent. The chicken...More

A sub-par restaurant; the service is pathetic where the waiter would not even check for the spice level and brings something that is bland and sour. We went out there for a family dinner and was truly disappointed. Not worth visiting.

We frequently eat here for lunch or dinner on our visits to Macalester College. The food has always been delicious, except for the one time I tried the fried walleye dish. The service is sometimes a little slow, but always friendly and enthusiastic. The atmosphere...More

Wide variety of menu items to choose from and the authentic flavors are there (except for my pad thai sriracha, which had a disappointing red tomato sauce but no spicy heat). Seems to be popular with the locals, and there are plenty of tables to...More
