Great service and delicious food. Pad Thai is a favorite and pineapple fried rice. The kids love it too!

I consider myself a "thai lover". this is by far one of the nest in south florida. the beef salad is simply unparalleled. service is always good. kind of a low key place for the locals - not fancy but fresh and good every time. service is great. staff are welcoming and on point.

Some of the dishes they kept from the old owners (when they got their good Michelin rating) were ok, but nothing beyond a local lunch joint now.

Food was nothing special. Tried Crab Rangoon, crunchy shrimp and pineapple fried rice with chicken. Did not like the tofu in the fried rice. Barely any crab in the Rangoon. Service was slow. Only one server for the whole place. Wasn't very busy, but she was very slow.

The lunch special appeared VERY quickly and actually tasted like it had been sitting around waiting to be served....it was dry and gummy. I'm willing to give this restaurant another chance because my friends LOVE it, and I've read a number of positive reviews -- but I was disappointed.

Adventuresome cuisine- not your ordinary Thai restaurant. Service is excellent. It's not fancy but it's very good.

Very high-quality Thai food, with portion sizes that are more like people should eat - filling, not bloating. Flavors very well balanced, simple and clean atmosphere, and friendly staff. Great lunch specials. Try the authentic appetizers!

I've been to Tub Tim Thai several times on visits to the Chicago area, and I have never been disappointed. Their food is fresh and inventively prepared. It's also typical of a Chicago storefront restaurant - relaxed and friendly.

We met friends here for dinner because it was conveniently located for us as each couple came from a different direction. We were late for our reservation and they did not seem to mind even though the restaurant was mostly full (and it was fairly early, 6 pm, on a Saturday night. The service was friendly and relaxed.
