The restaurant is cheerful and the staff is friendly. We ordered at the counter and food was brought to us in a timely manner. Food we had was good. We each had an eggroll and split the pad thai.

We always stop by in this place when driving past on our way to the mountains or back. The pad thai here is the most welcome meal after some serious mountainsports. The place is overall very welcoming. Excellent food and service, strongly recommend!

Delicious green curry with chicken.I've driven by this place many times on my to and from Monarch Ski Area, glad I stopped this time. Prices seem high ($13) for the area, but the food was so good it made up for it.

Good food, good service; we had red curry, green curry, and seafood basil; all were good. Small, local restaurant, casual, clean.

I'll admit we were skeptical about the Mini Thai Cafe, simply based on the location. We love Thai food, so we rolled the dice and it was a win! What a surprise! They'll add spice if you ask for some heat, and everything we had...More
