Never a Wait

There has been an influx of Thai restaurants in the Uptown scene during the past few years. Chiang Mai Thai has hung in there even though Amazing Thailand, Tum Rup and Roat Osha could have stole some of their thunder. For the past four years Chiang Mai has been voted best Thai restaurant by City Pages, maybe they are on to something.

One of the best parts of Chiang Mai to me is I never have to wait. There is always a host at the station up front, super friendly and they get you seated. Chiang Mai has a lot of space in their dining room as well as a private dining area and bar and lounge. The dining space is intimate, but spacious at the same time. The huge booths give you privacy and comfort. The lounge area is also nice with high top tables and a decent sized bar. The walls are cream colored; the ceiling is covered with bamboo and paper lamps and it is almost like a resort (‘exotic vacation’ says the website).

For food there is a menu filled with apps, salads, stir fry, noodles and curries. My favorites are the chicken satay and fresh spring rolls for apps. I especially like the peanut sauce and cucumber vinaigrette that comes with the satay. I’m usually pretty dull and go with the pad Thai for my entrée. Chiang Mai does a great job with their pad Thai. It is fresh and not overly greasy. I also add mock duck which makes the dish only $10, a good deal when you have enough for lunch leftovers the next day. All items are reasonably priced and average $10-$12 per dish.

Lastly, they serve Taj Mahal lager in big bottles. They had me at beer. Chiang Mai also serves wine and a number of specialty drinks including the Black Widow, the Urban Monk and the Asian Knightmare (they named one after me, how nice).

Open daily from 11:00am to 1:00am. Full menu is served until 11:00pm
HH Sun-Fri 4:00pm to 6:00pm and again from 10:00pm to midnight

Chicken Satay

Skewered, marinated chicken flash fried and finished on the the grill. Served with curried peanut sauce and cucumber vinaigrette, yum!

vegetarian spring rolls with peanut sauce

Rice paper rolls stuffed with noodles, lettuce, cilantro and bean sprouts. Available with curried beef tenderloin or vegan. I’m used to my spring rolls including beef and shrimp, but vegetarian is alright too.

Dinner with a Rembrandt

Date Visited: Tuesday 7/21/09 (Dinner)

We were looking for a location that enabled a local friend of mine (from the Rembrandt) to walk from his “uptown” location and since those who had been there before said it was good, we went with it.

The atmosphere here is good. The restaurant is clean and had a nice design. We sat in a big booth and had a very friendly server who was knowledgeable with vegan requirements. That’s a big plus.

We had 2 orders of appetizers (vegetarian spring rolls). Each order has 4 spring rolls with a side of peanut sauce. I thought it was okay. It was Happy Hour, so it was a discounted price until 6 p.m.

For the money, it was okay. I think it was about $85 for the 5 of us, before tip. I was glad we got some Happy Hour items. My friend got 4 items off the menu and it seemed to fill him up pretty well. Everyone else seemed pleased with what they got, so I’d definitely go back to it again if I’m in the area.

Pad See Ew

Alicks ordered the Pad See Ew (or however they spell it there….always finding places spell it their own way) with tofu. I was asked if I wanted rice or egg noodles. I should have stuck with the egg noodles, but I opted for rice noodles. This is the 2nd time I’ve had Pad See Ew with rice noodles and the 2nd time I’ve been disappointed. I have learned my lesson though.

I love this place!

When you want Thai food in Minneapolis this is the place to go. I love their wide selection of menu options and they allow you to choose what meat or non-meat you want them to put in your dish. This is great for vegetarians. You can ask them to hold the MSG too. The ambiance here is very nice. My brother orders the green curry dish and I order the stir frys. They also have nice vegetarian spring rolls with peanut sauce. I’ve enjoyed everything that I’ve ordered!

A Vegan food lover from US tried Hard Times Cafe in Cedar-Riverside, didn't like it, and rated it . They liked the food, didn't like the service, and didn't like the ambiance.

Pros
My niece loved the tofu scramble. I had rice with steamed veggies, which was perfectly cooked but lacked seasoning/sauce. I added sriracha and that helped.
Cons
My Mom’s haystack was very salty, while my food didn’t seem to be seasoned much.
Comments
The music was bad. Bad. I can’t even describe it. It wasn’t edgy or mysterious or cultural. Not meditative or catchy or interesting or intense or even boring. It was just bad and at times annoying.

They discriminate against people that don't have the same political views. No discrimination is OK period. I will never step another foot in there again.
