It used to be awesome, now it's just slightly better than okay

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... read 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. We... More

I came for my first time last week. I have eaten at a lot of Asian restaurants in the cities and 1 st of Thai was wonderful. The place is very clean and the service was great! I will be back sooner then later.

Nice variety of Asian-style cuisine, mainly Thai but some dishes in the style of Chinese and Vietnamese. They have a good touch for cooking with spicy seasoning. The Thai grilled sausage with the sticky rice is excellent. Spring rolls and Koong Han Pha (# 6) are quite good. They have Singha beer, and service was good and efficient -- dishes... More

The food was quite good although I'm a bit spoiled living in DC area with lots of really great Thai food but this place is worth stopping at.

The place is very dated and dirty. The bathroom was so disgusting, it made me wonder what the kitchen was like. If I had seen this before we ordered, we would have left right away. I ordered no spice, my husband ordered spicy, and his was plain and mine was too hot. We had to trade our meals. Hmmm, really?
