Good Thai Food, and other options

Good food near Northfield and the colleges. I had dinner here with family. The appetizers were good and everyone enjoyed their meal.

Best Thai food hands down, large variety on the menu, fast, clean great services. Wether you order a pick up or dine in you won't be disappointed, I love the Pad Thai! I also have tried a lot of the specials and they never disappoint (great prices too).

Their dishes are very good. The service is very good and quick. Very big variety and can order it on a one to five spice scale.

Whether it is take out or eat in, we have always had a good experience with the food here. It is unique to the area. The veggies are crispy like they should be. We usually have left overs so that is nice to have for the next day!

There are plenty of Asian restaurants around--but only a few in Faribault. This is truly a Thai restaurant, good for lunch or dinner. The food is plentiful, we'll prepared, hot, and very tasty. It's an excellent place for a business lunch with service that will get one back to the desk on the road quickly.

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!

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.

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
