Amazing Thailand Restaurant
Uptown Minneapolis

Amazing Thailand – Home for the Homesick

When I interviewed the General Manager of Amazing Thailand, he told me that he had an Interior Design degree from the U. I thought that a bit odd until he told me he designed the interior of Amazing Thailand because he gets homesick and wanted to come to work in a place that reminded him of home. When you walk in the door, you’ll get it. There’s a bamboo jungle, a traditional Thai home (with colorful Thai parasols hanging from the ceiling) and a palace.

Your eyes will likely bug out when you see the buffet. Mine did. I was excited to see the spring rolls on the buffet because I could live on those alone. The lunch buffet is M-F from 11:30am – 3PM. At $9.95, it is so worth it. This is my new favorite buffet.Amazing Thailand Restaurant Front and Side Patio

One of the things I like about this place is that their menu covers a wide range of dishes from every corner of Thailand rather than concentrating on a specific area. So you can enjoy real culinary diversity.

I asked John Noree, the GM, what he recommended for the first timer. He said their Spring Roll is their number one appetizer so start there. Then he recommended the Pad Thai because it is their signature entrée. Then wrap it up with the Mango & Sticky Rice dessert. For a meal like that, it will set you back around $27. Not bad. And he recommended the Sing Ha traditional Thai beer.

Speaking of the bar, John told me that they put a traditional Thai twist on all their cocktails. For instance, their margaritas are mango flavored. And their Pina Colada is served in imported Thai coconuts. It seems like John enjoys sneaking in as much of his Thai homeland as he can. That’s a nice touch.

They are located near the corner of Hennepin and Lake. They have daily drink specials and also daily dinner specials. Happy Hour: Sun, Mon, Wed, Thur. is from 4-6pm and from 9-close. Tuesday is 4:00pm to close, and Fri. & Sat. is 4-6pm and from 10-close. Taps, house wines and rails are only $3. So are select appetizers. They open every day at 11:30am and close at 11pm Sun-Thurs and Midnight Fri & Sat. Call 612-822-5588 for more information. Their website is at http://www.amazingthailandusa.com/.
