It’s as the title of this review says. Fantastic food! Try the Pad Thai for sure. I’ve lived in Denver for over twenty years and have hit every Thai joint there and this is better than any of them.

Although the menu is limited, every item is a winner. A weekly regular for us, the food is authentic & delicious. Even mild can be spicy so don't be shy about what you like--they are happy to customize.

The restaurant owners are a Thai family and the food is authentic Thai. I cannot comment on other cuisine. While reviews mention issues with non-Thai dishes (egg rolls etc.) I have never had anything but a fantastic Thai meal at the Mini Cafe. Various curries...More
