True Thai Restaurant - Closed

2627 E. Franklin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55406 | Seward/ Longfellow/ Minnehaha | 612-375-9942

Location Description:

A neighborhood sweetheart of a corner shop with a catfish salad to die for, True Thai is another jewel in the crown of Seward, that academic haven with Mississippi views. The pad thai is light and fresh, topped with the traditional chives and sweet radish, instead of the scallions and nothing you find at less classically minded Thai spots. The wine and beer list is tiny, but budget-friendly and well rounded. Be sure to try the Sweet Green Curry, which, reportedly, 100 years ago, was only served to Thai royalty and palace guests. Now you're eating like royalty in a crown jewel, for under $10. Viva democracy!
