Our server (Courtney) was very knowledgeable about the extensive and creative menu; helpful with suggestions re: menu selections and spices. She was attentive, but never intrusive. We enjoyed appetizers of Malaysian chicken satay, steamed pork potstickers, and panko crusted softshell crab. All were scrumptious! My wife ordered an entree of cornish hen with steamed vegetables which was deliciously prepared in a plum-hoisin sauce. I ordered an entree of Thai hot and sour soup which was outstanding; a tasty, clear broth loaded with chicken and vegetables. The soup was a refreshing variation from the hot and sour soups I've enjoyed at several Chinese restaurants. The highlight of the meal was dessert: sweet rice with coconut ice cream.

Best food in St. Louis Park
As a resident of St. Louis Park that previously lived in Loring Park, I wanted to find a good Asian restaurant close to home. Well, with Thanh Do, I not only found a good one, but the best one! Thom Pham is a genius.

Wonderful Thai food
We had the Arctic Char which was served with a light sauce. The fish was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The Korean ribs were cooked to perfection. We really enjoyed the meal, and our waiter provided excellent service. Both times we have eaten at Thahn Do have been a superb experience.

Quality of food is the best thing about this restaurant. Excellent green curry and the chef was not timid with the spice. Of course the cranberry puffs are a most interesting fusion and taste great.

couple negatives, but overall great
Great food and wine suggestions! The only negative I could say is that they didn't clear our appetizer plates when our food came. Not a huge deal, just thought it was weird. Luckily there was an empty table next to us, so we just set them on that. Otherwise, great experience.
Also I would add more sauce to the supper fun noodles!

Great food but understaffed
All the food was excellent, but there didn't seem to be enough wait staff on the floor. Orders took a long time (I think they forgot mine - it came out 5 minutes after the rest of the table) and just in general we seemed to do most of the waiting.

The food has the best flavor of any asian food I have tasted in the Twin Cities area. The portions are great and the taste is out of this world.

great service and awesome food.
One of the greatest Thai restaurants in Minneapolis. We live going there and enjoying the great food and great service.

Thanh Do is not your ordinary Asian restaurant. The menu is interesting and eclectic, with offerings for men who don't eat quiche as well as Asian items with a unique twist. Very tasty and generous portions.

I like sitting at the bar to dine and have Asahi on tap while catching up on sports on cable. Great Asian blend of foods. If you don't like spicy hot then specify - not all dishes are hot. The Ahi Tuna was a relish to the palate. I look forward to other dishes. Ramen Tokyo style soup is great, so is the Pho. There is a strong family tradition of cooking in the kitchen. Friendly management and workers. A good sake selection too.
The experience? .... an affair with creative Asian flavors.

Best Calamari Ever
When the calamari arrived my wife and I both commented, "did they forget the dipping sauce?" No they did not. This dish was so good it didn't need any dipping sauce!

My wife and I LOVE Thanh Do! The food has always been wonderful - such excellent flavors! The wait staff are always very knowledgeable not only of the menu but they all have excellent serving experience and know how to make Thanh Do a terrific dining experience every time. For a Thai place, the wine menu is very good also. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is located in St Louis Park and we drive there from Blaine passing several other Thai places we also like, just to enjoy the experience and the little twists they put into the dishes there.

Great Food OK Service
The food we had was wonderful, perfectly prepared, creative. We always have loved this place but each time we come we scratch our head over why they struggle with service. The service seemed to lack a system. Wait staff bussing tables, host taking take out orders while diners lined up at counter to be seated while tables were empty or customers sat at table waiting to order. The management needs to be sure to have staff clearly assigned and priorities set on customers. We really want this place to be successful.

Best Thai west of the city
Thanh Do has been around awhile, but we didn't start frequenting it until after we lost our favorite Thai place in Minneapolis, King and I. Our new favorite is located in a strip mall in St Louis Park on Mtka Blvd, but don't let that stop you. The inside is designed like a place you'd expect to find down town. You won't be disapointed in the decor, the bar, or the menu. The service is always great too!

We had a reservation and got right in. Food was great as always and the server was friend/y/up beat/knowledgable

At last, crisp stir fried veggies!
Many places that offer stir fry is why the veggies come out mushy like they were boiled. Thanh Do's stir fry was excellent in every way! The carrots and mushrooms were obviously very fresh and would have been delicious raw but were outstanding in the Garlic Lover's classic wok dish with chicken that I had tonight. The Banana roll dessert was also lovely! The music they had playing was good background music and the attention paid by the server was just right! All in all it was a fantastic dinner.

Tried a new menu item, sweet potato and shrimp item, would not order it again because it wasn't very special. Just a deep fried mass of more batter than anything. Outside of that, the spanker soup was exceptional and other dishes very good. Service was hit or miss. Our main server was just OK but the support staff that assisted her were very friendly and helpful!

Great Neighborhood Restaurant
St Louis Park is so lucky to have Thom and Thanh Do! It's a wonderful place to just meet up with friends, celebrate a special occasion or have lunch/dinner everyday! What a wonderful group of people who serve great food! Come for a quick bite, come and celebrate a birthday/anniversary or come and check out the new menu or local favorites. A fun and special place!
