“The vegetables were brilliant … The two soups, the tamarind-sour thom-yum-koong and the light and sweet coconut-milk-based thom-kha-gai, are each miraculous … In contrast, there’s the complicated depth of the Massaman curry … I can say that based on my visits, it’s the best Thai restaurant in Minnesota.”

Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, Minnesota Monthly


“At this Linden Hills gem, vegetables are exactly what the world’s food-gurus have been telling us vegetables should be: indulgent, sensuous, and extravagant.”

Minnesota Monthly


“The service was first rate, attentive, gracious, and knowledgeable, and the restaurant itself is a charming little storefront.”

Mpls. St. Paul Magazine


“The noodles are light and springy, and not at all greasy. The veggies are crunchy, the flavors subtly sweet and smoky. The cooking at Naviya’s is done à la minute, and dishes are served hot out of the wok, so the flavors and textures pop.”

City Pages


“We were too busy savoring every last bite of mango with sticky rice for dessert.”
