When it opened, years ago, this was a good little restaurant that had some very tasty foods. Over the years it failed to invest in itself and rumor has it the ownership changes so much of its former qualities have worn off.

Fantastic Thai food. Very authentic. Quick service. Not a flashy location, but the food is consistently excellent. Lunch specials are a great value.

Really good Thai is hard to find in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, but Tum Rup Thai is the best we've found so far. This is a few blocks East of Lake and Hennepin and has limited outdoor seating and nice indoor decor. My daughters absolutely loved the Pad Thai. The best they've had since visiting Thailand a year ago. I... More

Its a great place to take family and friends visiting because there is such a large menu and no one has ever complained about food...sometimes service isn't top notch but haven't had any major issues. The atmosphere is... More

Some girls and myself came here after a workout for lunch. The food was delicious, and fast. They have a great selection for lunch and it's only $10! Will be heading here again.

My husband and I eat here at least once a month. We will go NO WHERE ELSE for wonton soup! A dimly lit atmosphere and happy hour appetizers are a bonus. Great drink menu.

Went for a couple drinks with a date. I didn't get to try the food, but the atmosphere was very romantic and the servers were very nice. The food sounded good too. I might come back to try the food again sometime.

Thank fohres
