Vegetarian friendly menu with vegan options

Their menu clearly marks vegetarian options, and states that those options do not contain any sort of fish or oyster sauce.

I love Ruam Mit! Great takeout Thai in Saint Paul. You can get brown rice instead of white for about $1.50. I pretty much always get these two curries: Pad Prig King (green beans) and Pha Ram Long Song (steamed spinach) - get both with fried tofu. The fried tofu always tastes made-to-order and the veggies also taste really fresh. The fresh springrolls are nothing to write home about - not much other than rice noodles and lettuce/carrots not really any herbs and definitely not tofu or mock duck in them.

When getting takeout, they do an awesome job separating out the sauces from the ingredients so it still tastes fresh by the time you get home. I wish they delivered (but my wallet is thankful they don't). They are also great at being upfront about if there is or is not fish sauce in dishes and their vegetarian "V" means no fish/oyster sauce. yay!

Went here for dinner based on a recommendation. The restaurant itself is incredibly casual, but the service is fast and friendly. Another site commented that not all vegetarian curries were truly vegetarian due to shrimp paste, so I did some sleuthing. Here's what I got from the kitchen staff:
All curries marked V with the exception of #30 are completely vegetarian and vegan friendly. #30 uses a different red curry than the powders/pastes they use for the others, and DOES have shrimp paste already in it.
Curries #32 and #29 have NO MSG, the rest have varying amounts based on the blend of fresh and premade curry pastes.
There is a decent handful of entrees marked V, but I'm willing to bet with some simple substitutions, you could likely get other dishes modified to be vegetarian or vegan. I'm gluten intolerant and love when a place has items clearly marked as gluten free, and this place has a great selection of gluten free items as well.
I had the Pad Prig Khing curry with fried tofu- it was a little on the sweet side which I found odd, but the curry had a nice flavor otherwise, and mild spice at the medium level. The tofu used was silken, so it had a really nice thin crispy exterior with a creamy interior. The green beans were lightly charred and super crunchy, another plus. My husband got the Pad Keow Waan with mock duck. He commented that his veggies were also fresh and super crunchy. I tried some of his curry sauce, and it was nice and light with a hint of thai basil. Both portions were more than ample and made for great leftovers. We also had veggie spring rolls with peanut sauce, which were what you would expect- but they were good.
