Because we have three small children, we usually get food to go from here but have eaten in the restaurant once and had a good experience. This is one of the better Asian food restaurants in Minneapolis. A real gem. And next to an Asian grocery store so you can recreate your favorite dishes at home if you wish to. I highly recommend the curries and the noodle dishes. Though the pad thai has had some poor reviews on other websites, we liked it. We had decent service our one time eating in, and would definitely go back.

Tasty, authentic Thai food served by a warm and engaging staff. Each dish, from curries to noodles are thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented. Makes me want to live in Brooklyn Park.

Very good food, but, horrible service.
Staff has no personality & is not worth tipping. Even after the remodel (which I'm surprised happened because every time I visit it seems business is lacking) of the restaurant, the service still lacks & on top of that, one of the male servers & sushi chefs had a very loud conversation in front of my bf & I, (we were the only diners there during what should have been lunch rush) they cursed & I think I counted the "F" word more than six times. On top of that, the sushi guy blatantly took a personal call (not even bothering to go talk in the back room but right in front of us) on his cell-with yes, more loud cursing. Where was the manager? Don't managers usually walk around greeting diners? In this case there was only my bf & I. Good food Lemongrass-but keep in mind this is the only reason I return.

This is a wonderful family restaurant near Festival Foods off of 85th Ave N and highway 252. We mainly stick to Pad Thai (as hot as you want) and Spring Rolls. We have tried other items but I think we know a good thing when we taste it. Take out works great for us because I call first and by the time I get there it is ready to go! One serving is enough for several meals and always taste GREAT to the last meal.
