Our family went here for a dinner and we all shared multiple Thai Salads. They are a wonderful mix of ingredients. We feasted. Everyone at their fill and loved it and took some home. We will go back anytime. Parking though can be an adventure.

I am probably in the minority in not liking this restaurant. The restaurant was packed at noon and they do have quite a few lunch entrees for under $10. We ordered the egg rolls and they had no taste. The sauce was not the usual...More

This is a great place for a quick lunch, especially when you're in the mood for Pho. I remember coming to this place as a kid, and now come here for lunch when on the U of M campus. My favorite is the Pho Tai...More

My wife and I have been going to Bona for years. The food and service is great. I just wish the City of Minneapolis would take the tree away from the old parking space on the West side of the building. I love trees, everything...More
