Stopped here on a whim for a quick lunch with a friend. Service was very good and food was excellent. I had the pad Thai and Jasmine tea and friend ordered the cashew chicken.

The food is great. Thai hot really means Thai hot so be careful. the service can be a bit slow but the food is worth it. the atmosphere is probably not what you would expect but the food is good

A great restaurant for when you want something a little different, but a lot of awesome! Menu offers so many choices that will satisfy all tastes and heat thresholds. I am a sissy and stick to the green curry, but have been pleased with everything I have tried. Good lunch spot for a day of shopping and great date night... More

Some of the best Thai food I have ever had. The staff was extremely pleasant and there was not a major wait time for the food. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Minot!

I waited 45 minutes for my Togo order while they had only one table in the restaurant.. With that being said they gave me most of my order for free because of the wait and the food was really good.

Having dined at Baan Rao a few times over the past year, I can say with confidence that they serve consistently fabulous Thai cuisine. Plenty of variety can be found on the menu, including traditional Thai dishes, salads, and desserts. Baan Rao is very tidy, and the staff is polite and attentive.

I ordered two dishes for take out. Wonderful! The staff were helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is simple and relaxing with soothing music. The food is authentic. I'll eat here every time I'm in Minot.

Having grown tired of the usual burgers and fries we were pleased to see other reviews of this Thai place. The waitress apologized for having a more limited menu on Sunday but we were happy to have an easier selection process. Two of us had stir fry and one curry - all were delicious. If we lived closer we'd be... More

I've ate there only three times and my experience gets better and better. The staff helped me pick out some meals as I'm not to familiar with Thai food. This place is the best.

Great food, very generous lunch portions! Everyone was pleased with their dish-especially the Basil Chicken. Also very authentic, which is appreciated!
