We liked it so much that we came back a second time. Soups, egg rolls, spring rolls, chicken were all excellent. There was a little bit of mis communication between the kitchen and the wait staff, but it really was a non issue. Great food, good prices.

This is one place where I have no problem ordering the same thing everytime. I never do that but here you can. The food is always good and fresh. To have something this good down by us is a treasure. Best sesame chicken too!

We like the restaurant for something different than burgers or pizza. Their vegetable dishes are very fresh and cooked just perfect, not to much and not to little.

We were just passing through and spotted this place after we exited the Interstate. We had the Phanang and the Hot and Spicy (Vietnamese Style). We had a level 3 (out of 5) spice level and that was hot, but not overpowering. Both dishes were less sweet (and therefore seemed more authentic) than Thai food we often have. If we... More

This is the 2nd restaurant in Faribault where I have visited which claims to serve Thai food. 1st of Thai is the most authentic, serving dishes which are most similar to those I have had in Thailand. Service is very good, we were never waiting for drink refills and more than one server stopped to check in with us and... More

Great variety of authentic food. Service great. Our server was very knowledgeable of the items on the menu and was able to explain what the different items were on the menu.

I didn't expect to find Thai food in MN. I'm from Seattle where we have excellent thai food. This was decent food, pretty good. The 5 star spicy was actually decently spicy. Their peanut sauce was watery and lacking and I was sad to see there was no Swimming Rama, one of my favorites back home.

The restaurant is conveniently located just off I-35. The décor is pleasant and comfortable, the staff very friendly, and the menu has an excellent range of options at reasonable prices. The food was fresh and very tasty. The only caveat is that when ordering, one should stay on the conservative end of the 1-5 "heat" scale, because our "3" level... More

When my husband and I drive back from the cities on Sundays we like to call ahead to here and order food. We only live 30 minutes away so what we tend to do is get two entrees and then two orders of spring rolls. The spring rolls don't ever make it home but that's okay. :)
