Enjoyable.

Good service, good food. Be careful with the spice number when you order. One chef's number 1 could be different from the next. Love the rice. It isn't packed; nice and fluffy. Attentive workers.

Fantastic Thai menu. The spring rolls were delightful with a light peanut sauce. I had the red curry with shrimp at a 3 spice (scale of 5). The heat was great, 3 is definitely a nice kick. Interior could use an upgrade but the food and service are spot on!

We came on a Tuesday night and they were really busy. The service was fast and wonderful and the food was so fresh. We will come back.

Picked 2 appetizers and one entrée. Each dish was perfectly prepared, very tasty, and served hot. Our Server (the owners daughter in law) went out of her way to make our visit very enjoyable. A perfect way to end a very long, tiring day. Visit here. You won't be sorry !!

I don't know what happened, but this place used to be so awesome. Maybe the main chef was off for the day or something the last time I went there. I like to give them the benefit of the doubt so give them a try because their food is generally very good but the last time I had it was... More

They have authentic Thai food and other Asian foods. Prices are reasonable with most in the $8 to $12 range. Wine and beer are available.

We were surprised to find such an authentic Thai food experience in Faribault. Excellent food, wait staff mediocre, prices are reasonable. Atmosphere of the restaurant needs to be improved, feels sparse and a little like a cafeteria.

This is a small restaurant right off of 35 south in faribault. Easy to find and easy to enjoy. The prices are a bit on the higher side but the food is wonderful. You choose you heat level. That's nice.

We are from Mpls and very fond of asian food in general and we were pleasantly surprised to find this little gem here in Faribault. From what I know of Asian food, this is more "americanized" combo of chinese, thai, vietnamese food under more "general" names which are more readily identifiable if not familiar with the food... all good.
