Best Indian/Thai in Mpls between airport and Mpls
I am picking up a friend at the airport next Monday and headed to dinner. She has a request of Indian or Thai (b/c she lives in podunk Michigan) and as I have been away from the ethnic dining scene for a while (small children) I'm not up on the latest/greatest.
I am familiar with Ghandi Mahal and Dancing Ganesha and just had the lunch buffet at the Copper Pot. Anything I'm missing?
For Thai, I'm at a loss. Thoughts?
Looking forward to an adult dinner with spice!
Thai near the airport?
You might try On's at Snelling & University in St. Paul. You can go up Fairview to University without much stopping. It's maybe a 10-15 minute drive. Then you can hop onto I-94 quickly and get over to Minneapolis after dinner.
Krungthep Thai in Uptown if it absolutely has to be in Minneapolis.
Big fan of India Cafe (it's Indian / Pakistani). It's small, no frills, nondescript interior, sometimes clumsy but friendly service, but I love the food. I have yet to not be the only caucasian in the restaurant on my visits (I always feel this is a good indicator for an ethnic restaurant).
http://www.indiacafemn.com has a menu, but doesn't look complete versus the one in store.
