I should have guessed that something was wrong when there were several open tables and no one to immediately seat three parties waiting for over ten minutes. We ordered the lunch buffet and were shocked to see just rice. The remaining trays had morsels. We were reassured fresh food would arrive momentarily. One person in our party was so disgusted,...

I love their red curry and kabosha squash. I must have had it 20 times before I tried anything else. Just too good. Always good service with friendly staff and excellent food. Anna will take care of you!

Voted Best Thai in Minneapolis for a reason! The food is always good. Highly recommend eating there. The buffets are sort of limited to what they can do! Highly recommend ordering off the menu. Never had a bad plate in 10 visits!!!

I had eaten here years ago and thought the food was great; now not so great. We waited 45 min. for our appetizer of fried calamari, after they told us they were out of spring rolls. Finally after a half hour waiting for the calamari, they brought us spring rolls since the wait was so long. I thought they were... More

I had heard that True Thai had the best Thai food in Minneapolis, and it's definitely true! This tucked-away place has wonderful Asian food. You may eat in, or take out for those busy nights.

This was one of my favorite places in the Twin Cities. Now, I have to put it on my blacklist. The issue is simple - they cannot attend to the customer. Too few waiters, a cook who is always absent in the last few months, and too many other excuses for failed execution. It is too bad that this business... More

Used to be a favorite. No more. Almost 2 hour wait for food to arrive and then the orders were wrong. Have they grown too big for the number of help or size of the kitchen? Out front staff were great. Everyone waited and waited, and got angrier and angrier. I felt horrible for the waitstaff but worse for the... More

Short story: We've been to this restaurant a LOT in the past 10 years. Tonight, we walked in the door at 6 p.m. and hadn't eaten by 8:15 p.m. when we walked out the door. Long story: We got to the restaurant at 6:00 and, judging by the number of people in the cramped lobby, weren't surprised when we were... More
