Not strongly recommended – They make mistakes for orders what I was heard. However, I experienced same thing. If you ask them for your preference for hot or not hot, you should be really careful. We order the foods over the phone and asked them for not hot at all for kids. Brought back the ordered foods home, put on dishes, and saw the lots of hot peppers in. Called them for what I can do for this, they said I have to bring all the food back to them to show them and they can see if they made mistakes. And then, they can fixe it. Worst service ever. Never say sorry at all.
Sooo very disappointing – This is probably about the third time I have eaten here. This will be the last. This place is renound for slow service. The wait staff was not familiar with the dishes on the menu. It took forever for us to get our food. When the first 4 of our entrees arrived they were not hot. The 5th entree did not arrive until everyone else had finished their food. I thought I would give this place another try because our favorite Thai place is closed on Sundays. What a huge mistake.
Terrible Service, Great Food – Well, every time I order from them (which is often) I feel like I am inconveniencing them by spending money there. I love the food. It's delicious. But they need more staff and a larger space. They are generally rude at the check-out desk and on the phone. I just called tonight and after having it alternate each call from a busy signal to ringing with no answer, someone finally answered, asked if I could hold, then hung up on me. I was so set on their delicious food that I called back again a bit later. When I said I wanted to place a take-out order the guy said "It's gonna be 45 minutes....I just had someone complaining about how long it took to get their food so if you can wait, fine...but I don't want anymore complaining!!!" It just feels like they have no appreciation for the customer. But again, best Thai I've ever eaten....which makes it hard to stay away. And makes it painful to keep giving them my money.
Good food, horrible service. – It's great for take-out. Service eating in needs to improve. Diners are forgotten. They are always out of dessert (list is also limited). Food is delicious though. Ambience, what ambience?
The service was horrible.. Management of the restaurant is terrible also. I felt really bad giving my money to that place.
Best thai food ever! – I have always loved this restaurant for its authenticity and neighborhood feel. The dishes prepared are always full of flavor and the staff are always friendly. I have recommended this restaurant to many people, and they are always impressed. If you like curry & you can handle spicy food, try #79!
Best Thai Food in St. Paul – I couldn't let that bad review sit out there on the web without getting in my 2 cents to balance the comments. I have eaten at TOT probably 50+ times and haven't had a bad meal yet. Even their buffet is worth trying [and I find buffets usually mediocre]. Their fresh spring rolls are to die for and their Tum Yum soup is unrivaled anywhere in town. As a matter of fact, it's only 9:30 in the morning and this writing is making me hungry! Go there! But be warned: any place this good is often pretty crowded. I often go at off hours like 3 on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Enjoy!
Spicy Thai food in a simple, unadorned St. Paul mainstay. – In Short
Two rooms are covered with dainty floral wallpaper and a few paintings of Thai rural life. Regulars and newbies come for dependable Thai dishes, particularly during lunch when it's buffet style. Crispy spring rolls are a favorite of most regulars. Chicken satay is served with a creamy peanut sauce and even mild pad thai has a kick. If Thai custard isn't available, order the fried bananas--they're hot, sweet palate cleansers.
Bad experiences almost always – What can I say about this place? The food is ok-good, but the experiences were almost always bad. There was one time where we had to wait for almost 1/2 hour for the food! but let me tell ya, there was one time where we waited long, and they got our orders all mixed up, 8/12 of our orders got their orders wrong, beef was replaced with pork, mild with hot, mild with not spicy, things like that.
the place is cold. I don't know what else to say. The food is good, but not worth it.
A+ for food AND service! – Taste of Thailand is a great little nook. We ate there last night, and the food was fantastic! Very affordable, also. I just wanted to comment on the great service we had, too. Our sodas were kept topped up, and we didn't have to wait very long at all for our food. Overall, Taste of Thailand was a great place, and I will definitely be going back there!
