Osseo >Reuan Thai Restaurant
pho.... We were excited about having a restaurant nearby with pho. We were disappointed because it didn't taste anything like pho. It tasted very oily. The beef was fine, but the soup wasn't edible.
Misled by the 5-star ratings.
After reading the positive reviews I had high hopes for Reuan Thai. After trying the restaurant for myself I'm starting to doubt that everything said on the internet is true.
I can't recommend dining in because the service was lacking, the dining room is noticeably drafty and the table was dirty and sticky. Our server was young and possibly inexperienced–not her fault–but over the course of my meal hot tea was politely requested and verbally confirmed three separate times. The tea never did arrive. The entire front-of-house staff seemed young for a Saturday night.
I cannot recommend the take-out approach either as the food was average Thai at best. My Pad Thai was out of balance with overwhelming sweetness and a shrimp curry dish was shoulder-shruggingly ordinary.
In my opinion Reuan Thai was about what I would expect based solely on curb appeal, but fell disappointingly short of the gem online reviews portray it to be.
Some of the best Thai in the Twin Cities. We first learned about Reuan Thai through Citysearch but have never provided a review. If you want the freshest, most authentic Thai food in town and don't want to pay a lot, this is the place to come. The restaurant isn't the prettiest place on earth but the nearest place to get more authentic Thai food at this price is a street-corner restaurant in Thailand!
Best Spring Rolls in the Twin Cities!!. It is the simply the best Thai in town with out a doubt. If you like Sawadtee, A Taste of Thailand or comparable restaurants, you will love this place. My mother in law told me how great this place was, and I was skeptical at first. When I went there I was very pleased. The spring rolls are amazing.
Osseo's best kept secret Thai food spot. The chicken pad thai is a savory, fragrant blend that beckons from the sidewalk. The eggrolls are crisp and flavorful. The duck/fish sauce accompanying eggrolls is suprisingly sweet with a tangy after pop. Excellent food for incredibly low price. Reuan Thai is a surprising find in downtown Osseo. Once you find it you will be back again and again. The ambiance is rather cave-like and dimly lit but it adds to the experience.
Great Thai Food. My husband and I love this place. The food is always steaming hot and very fresh. The egg rolls are the best I've ever had and the Pad Thai is excellent. The atmosphere is a little lacking but with the food at these prices I could care less. Service is always good as well and the buffet is good.
REUAN THAI RESTURANT. My husband and I love, love, love this place. Our favorite Thai food place was sold and they no longer have Pad Thai-our fave. We tried this one Saturday at noon and knew immediately that we had found a gold mine. It is a typical litlle Thai resturant with wonderful servers and the best Thai food around. Everything we have tasted has been delicious.
The worst pad thai!. Ugh, this place was gross. We were the only customers in the entire restaurant so I think that should have been our first clue. I ordered the chicken pad thai and my husband had the chicken fried rice. Both of us had to pick the chicken out because it was so tough and chewy. After a minute of chewing it to death, I finally just put it into a napkin. Seriously, this place was not good. I think I may have had 4 or 5 bites of my dinner tonight and was just so disgusted, I pushed it aside. The noodles were also very chewy and very bland. The manager refused to take it off the bill, so we ended up paying $30 for food we barely touched. I would never go back here again.
Best Thai. We love this place. Its the best for Thai food. The spring rolls and the special egg rolls are the best.
Best Thai Food in the area.
You know what I love? When you find amazing food where you least expect it.
My boyfriend and I went to eat at this little Thai food place in downtown Osseo today, specifically Reuan Thai. This is a small town. Like, one stoplight small town. One little business strip small. It's cute in that way so many Midwestern small towns are cute...lots of flowers, a little park, a diner, and, oddly enough, a Thai restaurant. We go in, and it's small but clean, a good sign. The smell is rich and authentic, a mixture of grease and spices. Theres a buffet set up at the back, and about three other people in the place. We decided to chance it, and picked a booth. There were plenty of them, considering the fact that it was for all intents and purposes empty.
We grabbed our plates and started to fill them up. I chose the white rice with the chicken curry and vegetables, with a side of a chicken wing for kicks. Jeff tried everything available, which, while not overwhelming, was still a decent assortment. We sat down and started to eat.
And much to our amazement, the food wasincredible. Delicious. The chicken curry was spicy and tender and flavorful with a smooth creamy finish. The rice was perfect. The chicken wings were sweet, yielding with a crunch, fried to perfection. Divine. I just cannot say enough about this place. And to find it in downtown Osseo made it an even bigger treat. A true gem in the most unexpected place.
