Pretty Awesome – No way. This is some of the best food in the skyway. Tons of food at a great value. Plus, many places charge you for rice and ALL places charge you for veggies, while RO gives you both for free regardless of how many items you order. I spent 6 bucks and was absolutely stuffed. Went back to work very satisfied. The food is well flavored and very well seasoned. I am a spicy person, and so the only drawback is that they didn't provide sriracha. I highly recommend this place. Very good food at an even better value.
Pretty Lame – With the myriad options for Asian cuisine in Minneapolis, you'd think this place would try a little harder. I was hungry for some Thai food for lunch. I've been to Thailand and have certain expectations when it comes to Thai food. I had the Thai Basil Chicken (a standard Thai dish) and was underwhelmed with the lack of flavor. They also have standard steamed rice. I expected Jasmine rice. The portion was small, even by lunch standards. I also got two potstickers, ok, but somewhat mushy and much too large.
The saddening part is that I spent close to 10 bucks. If I were you, I'd go to Asian Max Cafe a block away.
