City Pages' Description
From the easy-on-the-pocketbook, not-so-easy-on-the-eyes Bangkok Thai deli in St. Paul, the owners have spun off Krungthep Thai in Minneapolis--a lovelier place, but with the same tasty soul. Krungthep serves the wonderful, addictive, spicy noodle dishes; slurpable, deep bowls of broth accompanied by piles and jars of welcome condiments; gorgeous plates of succulent whole fish; and the sweet, spicy, coconut milk green curry we've been dreaming of. The food is authentic enough to please world travelers, but it will also appeal to the pad Thai timid. It's a Cinderella story of how a little-appreciated deli crossed the river and took the crown of best Thai in town, told amid a firestorm of bird's eye chiles.
Tips from foursquare
To overlook the Thai sausage would be a grave mistake. These little nuggets are made of pork & packed with bright notes of lemongrass, Thai basil, garlic, and just enough fat to make them snappy.
Both the Nam Tok and Tom Yum are excellent. This food delivers flavor like a sock in the face.
Green Curry Tofu
Everything here is good & very authentic! Love the spring rolls as an app, basil chicken, thick curry (has just enough spice), and their version of pad see-ew. Yum!
Mild is spicy, spicy is unedible
