Sunday’s Site – Thanh Do, St. Louis Park

NOTE: see the bottom of Sunday's Site posts for homes for sale in the area

UPDATE: Now in a new location across the street at 8028 Minnetonka Blvd, St Louis Park, MN 55426

Tucked into a small strip mall at the corner of Minnetonka Blvd and Texas Ave in St. Louis Park is Thanh Do…an unassuming-looking restaurant that is far from ordinary…serving some of the best Asian cuisine in the metro area!


Owner Thom Pham grew up in Vietnam, working alongside his grandmother in her catering company. He was transplanted to the Twin Cities when he was adopted by a South Minneapolis family when he was 14.  Here he worked at a Vietnamese restaurant for many years as he saved enough money to open Thanh Do about 10 years ago.  Four years later he opened the trendy Azia Restaurant, a gem of Eat Street on Nicollet Avenue in South Minneapolis.

ThanhDo remains a gem of this St. Louis Park neighborhood, with people like us traveling from outside the immediate area to feed our cravings! Called 'the new generation of asian cuisine', it is a unique fusion of Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai cooking…along with some Minnesota components, exemplified in their famous Cranberry Wontons!

Thanh Do takeout happens to be one of our favorites, and when Inspector Reuben learned I was doing a post on Thanh Do he told me it was hands down his favorite restaurant! His favorites are nutty chicken, beef & potatoes and pad thai, which is also a hit with our 4-year-old grandson!

Thanh Do is another hidden Twin Cities treasure, one you likely wouldn't find if you didn't know about it!
