We will definitely go back again. Then spring rolls& cream cheese puffs were excellent! We also had the pad Thai shrimp and pineapple fried rice. Excellent food/flavors and service!

First time visitors and we started with special spring roll and cream cheese puffs. Both were very delicious and served with a very tasty sauce. Probably the some of the best cream cheese puffs I have had. My wife tried the pad Thai with shrimp and I ordered the fried rice with pineapple and chicken. We had the heat at... More

We love this place! Great food! Fast service! The owner and his family do an excellent job and the food is outstanding!! Located in a small older strip mall. The restaurant has some of the best food and excellent service south of the twin cities!

Our neighbors recommended this place, so we went for dinner, Can't believe we haven't been there before; it was wonderful! The fried rice with pineapple and chicken is a definite winner, as are the spring rolls. No wine available so we just had water. The service was excellent and prices reasonable. There were many orders of take-out picked up while... More

This is my favorite Thai place, I only wish it wasn't 4 hours from my home. We'll visit any time we get to the area!

We order take out regularly, and it is consistently excellent. Always ready in 10 minutes too. We highly recommend the egg rolls.

I enjoy this restaurant. It's a family style restaurant that's kind of corny for layout, but still a great place to enjoy some of the finer dishes. I enjoy their fresh spring rolls, and Pho. I'm eating low carb, so they're able to adjust my order to drop the noodles, and add more bean sprouts. They're always very accommodating.

I come to this restaurant whenever I'm visiting in town. Great service, very clean restaurant. Lots on the menu and authentic! Have the red curry and the madman curry, won't disappoint! Have not tried the meat options but the tofu is done very well.

We used Thai Yai to cater our daughters grad party. They were wonderful to work with and the food was awesome. We had pineapple fried rice with chicken, cream cheese puffs, and mini fresh spring rolls. They gave us huge portions and were extremely helpful by carrying the food to our car and loading it. We will definitely use them... More
