best Twin Cities Thai lately

  • t

Hard to believe that Shakopee would have such a good Thai restaurant let alone any Thai restaurant at all.

We had Pattaya seafood and Spicy Catfish from the specials board--both excellent. Owner said they are not part of a chain. It's the family's first restaurant and opened in August. Can't remember the name but it's on the old strip about 6 blocks west of Dangerfield's. We plan to go back for the $6.95 lunch specials where you get two main entrees to try (looked like always Phad Thai with another entree).

Noticed that Shakopee seems to be full of Mexican restaurants, too.

  1. I'm writing to report on today's Thai lunch in Shakopee. The green curry was rich and spicy, with a good balance of bright vegtables and pork. The Phad Thai was generous and flavorful. Everyone received a light vegetable soup before the entree, which was simple and good. The restaurant was clean and quiet. I would certainly like to go there again.

      Has anyone been here lately and have an update?

        I've always been a fan of Seewatde (spelling might be wrong). some great spicy curries, which is nice since most of the area Thai restaurants tend to scale down their spice for the local pallete.

          Hi Dave-

          I think this place closed, but did hear some fabulous things about it from a friend of mine when it was open. Unless there are 2 Thai places that close together in Shakopee, I'm afraid this one has since changed to be Chinese :( Too bad we never got to try it.

          I have yet to find a good Thai restaurant since Thai Bazil has experienced kitchen problems. If anyone here knows the owners please let me know. I want to see if there is anything we can do to get 'em re-started or to find out if they're moving somewhere else.

          A friend is going to open a new place downtown nearby the Guthrie in a few months. I'll let ya know if /when it really happens =)


      2. How about Thai Thai Daily everybody (in the International Hmong Market's food court)? How does that compare to "standard" Twin Cities Thai restaurants?
