Hidden gem in the south metro

Taste of Thaiyai has become our favorite take-out place in the south metro. Phenomenal and authentic Thai cuisine, prepared well. Very generous servings, and we've never had a problem with an order. Simply amazing.

I used to live in Uptown and loved the availability of Thai food. I wasn't expecting the same great food so far down in the suburbs, but sometimes life surprises you. I've had a number of their apps, some noodles, some rice, and a number of the entrees and the flavors are excellent. Only things I haven't liked were simply... More

I didn't care for their Thai Chicken fried rice, it was too sweet for me, but the special egg rolls were very delicious! I rated this Excellent,because they have pics of some of the food and their customer service was amazing.I would definitely go again, but try something else.

Excellent Thai food at very reasonable price. I absolutely love their Spring Rolls and Gai TomKha soup. Over the years I've seen this immigrant family pour their hearts and soul for this restaurant .... now a days the joint is always busy ....I guess the news of good food and service is spreading fast among the locals :) Give Taste...

Mostly just get take out from here but. ...it's amazing! Love it and highly recommend it. If you're getting it spicy, watch it, it has a kick! Egg roles are amazing and the curry is too. But try it all, tasty!

We are lucky enough to live close by and we have eaten her and ordered take out many many times. This is a casual restaurant tucked away in small multi unit building. Though the decor is not as nice as most Thai restaurants in Mpls, the food is as good in fact better than most of the upscale Thai restaurants.... More

My wife and I ordered egg rolls and shared Pad Thai and and Tom Yum soup. The egg rolls were the best we have had in years. The Pad Thai was excellent and the Tom Yum soup, while it had some weird, woody, inedible things in it, was truly outstanding. I will order it again the next time we go.... More

Tried Taste of Thailand because of the good reviews on Trip Advisor. I am a long time fan of Thai food and it was the first time my significant other tried it. The service was great and the food was even better! Fast and reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

Very fast service, probably the fastest Thai food I've ever had. I've been here 4 times now, and every time the food comes out very quick! Great for a quick lunch. The Fresh Spring Rolls are great every time. They offer 3 levels of mild, medium, or hot for everyone. Most of the Thai restaurants I visit offer 4 or... More

This restaurant is tucked away in a small strip mall and the there's not a lot of atmosphere but the food is some of the best around. The Thai style egg rolls are wonderful. I almost always have the Pho. I've tried this wonderful soup in a lot of restaurants but Taste of Thailand is the best I've found. They... More
