Poll results are in — Royal Orchid voted Twin Cities' best Thai restaurant

Is the Royal Orchid really the best Thai restaurant in the Twin Cities? The results of our recent poll probably won't put an end to the debates about who makes the best pad Thai and tom yum, but they do indicate which restaurant has the most loyal fan base: the Royal Orchid, 4022 University Ave., Columbia Heights, finished far ahead of the other 19 contenders, with 58 votes - 33 percent of all votes cast. Mango Thai in St. Paul finished second with 15 votes, and Sen Yai Sen Lek in northeast Minneapolis placed third with 11 votes.
