City Pages' Description
Naviya's Brasserie is the fourth Minnesota restaurant of Naviya La Barge and her husband, Kim, and it's tailor made for its Linden Hills locale. The prices are higher than most mom & pop Thai eateries, but in return, there are naturally raised meats, wine and beer lists, and a chic dining room that's light-filled and serene, with high ceilings and pretty purple banquettes. Naviya has given herself more creative license on the brasserie menu so you'll see, say, non-traditional Thai vegetables such as cauliflower appear in some dishes, but they're expertly cooked to stay crisp and a little smoky. The pad Thai is one of the best executions in town, its noodles light, springy, and non-greasy. Pair it with an order of curry and you've got a great Lake Harriet picnic.
Tips from foursquare
The red curry with bamboo and beef gets best in show: it features silky bits of beef in a rich and smoky curry.
Protip: If you are a dumb bro who may look like Dave Navarro and wearing red izod polo, please know that chopsticks are not used in Thailand. Epic date and culture fail....
Excellent food, thank u again!
Delicious! I got the scallop pad-ze-yew. Everything about it was delectable.
U must try their coconut soup. Heavenly!
