Food is ok, not the best Thai food in the twin cities by far. I would not say it is home made Thai, but it is ok, pricing was good. The service was overwhelming, every two seconds they came to take your plate or ask you if you where ok. I did not eat in peace. By the way there... More

For $20, I got a Thai iced tea, veggie egg rolls, and an entree! I really recommend the Rad Na with mock duck, it was so good! If they served alcohol, I'd move in.

I haven't had anything I didn't like here. As you'd hope and expect, fantastic pad Thai. Don't forget the special egg rolls! They're incredible!

Everything is fresh made. Level of spiciness can be ordered according to your taste. Menu offers a good variety of items. Staff is friendly and service is prompt.

Some of my coworkers frequent this restaurant and bring leftovers for lunch so thought we'd give it a try. We ordered egg rolls and red curry with vegetables. It normally comes with tofu which we hate so we asked for chicken...no problem. My husband asked to substitute bamboo shoots for his peapods...again no problem. The red curry coconut sauce was...

While the food was authentic, we felt really rushed; we ordered squid and egg rolls to try and our server assured us that our dinner wouldn't arrive before apps were eaten. WRONG! Didn't get even half of the app consumed and dinner arrives on an already crowded small table. I would not recommend dining in! We rated Poor in service... More

This is a Thai restaurant tucked away in a little strip mall in Apple Valley, near the Wal-Mart. My friend and I had lunch here and were both delighted. We shared two entrees. Both were delicious - just the amount of spice that we requested (hot), lean beef and chicken, crunchy vegetables. The service was impeccable. You need to check... More

We visit Taste of Thaiyai about once a month. It is a family run restaurant with great pho. The chef/cook always makes a point of visiting the table to make sure your food is acceptable. Some of the staff have a better command of English than others, but we are always made to feel welcome and have always received good... More
