It was cramped. I do not think they can handle a Saturday Night crowd. My friend and my husbands food was great. Mine and the other husbands food was grey and bland. Our appetizers were great. We were seated on the main serving lane and servers brushed by us a 100 times.

Given its proximity to the Guthrie Theater, I'd mistakenly assumed the food here would be secondary to the location. Kindee turned out to be a most pleasant surprise...excellent Thai food at reasonable prices. The tempura green beans were a terrific starter, and all the dishes our group of four ordered were truly delicious. Looking forward to going back.

Kindee Thai has the best cranberry won tons in town. Delicious Thai food at a reasonable price and across the street from the Guthrie. Perfect date night—dinner and a show. What more can a person want?

Date night with my daughter. A show at The Guthrie, dinner at Kindee. The server, Rebecca, was terrific. Great help on selections, pleasant, personable and prompt. A good experience we have already shared with others. The meal was very tasty, and perfect proportion. We will return the next time we're in the area or attend a show.

Kindee Thai Restaurant is a good option for those attending the Guthrie. We enjoyed a good meal that allows us plenty of time to get to our theatre seats before the performance.

The server was friendly and efficient!!

The food was very good as usual. Kindee is one of my pre-theatre favorites. However, in spite of making a reservation weeks in advance, we were given the table closest to the door and to the kitchen (more noisy) .... disappointing .... that shouldn't happen.

We enjoyed our meal and it was very convenient to the Guthrie theater which was great. The food was tasty but not very spicy. If you like spice go for the 5. No mixed drinks but wine and beer. Waiter was friendly.

The food is delicious, and service has been attentive the handful of times I've been there. My wife and I have gone there at least three times after plays at the Guthrie, and we look forward to it each time. She favors the Massaman curry, I the yellow curry.

She liked the food a lot. There was a play that night at the Guthrie across the street. The servers were very conscientious about the time customers had so they could make it to the play on time. When everyone left for the play there were only a few people left so we had some peace and quiet for our date.

Location, location, location. Kindee is kitty-corner from the Guthrie Theater, meaning they have a built-in before and after theater crowd. If it weren't for the that, Kindee wouldn't last a year.

Specifically, one of our party had to return her dish owing to the chicken being cooked to the point of being uncuttable and inedible. To their credit, they acknowledged the error and replaced the dish right away. But that wasn't the only problem. I'm not sure why it is on the menu, but their "tempura" features something more akin to pancake batter than the light, airy and delicate coating one might expect. And fish wraps? McDonald's serves more delicate and flaky fish.

So why give it 3 stars? Because three out of five of the sauces were actually good. My Thai Basil with mock duck was flavorful. My daughter's "Garlic" with broccoli and chicken was ok. My wife's pad se yew wasn't bad.

If it weren't for the horrid Minnesota winters, I suspect most people, once having tried Kindee, would walk four blocks to Sawatdee for more authentic fare. Or they'd go somewhere else for a burger. But if you need to dash to or from the Guthrie without getting frostbite, and/or don't want to spend a small fortune at Sea Change or Spoon River, expect mediocrity; not horrible, but not good. That is Kindee.

We have been to Kindee Thai twice in the last month - both times before a theater performance at the Guthrie. Food was delicious and we did not feel rushed. Great service. We are fussy about Thai food and would rank this high in terms of freshness, taste and presentation.
