No flavor ...

The restaurant is a small hole in the wall place which usually means the food is hit or miss and this one is sorely a miss. The owner Upin is a nice lady and seems to have her own flare of cooking style but when it comes to the taste of the food it seems like she has lost her... read more

Upin's was at least a unique experience. She's a charming lady, but her style of Thai is not what you expect, as others have mentioned. First off, place your order to go since there are about 8 chairs in the place. The menu is smaller than you would expect from a Thai restaurant, but it is a one woman show.... More

I love Thai food, and recognize that Pad Thai is different every time it's made. This is a carry-out place, with minimal seating also available. The staff was attentive and very busy. If I return, I'd definitely try some of the curry and give it another shot. On this visit, I was somewhat disappointed, although the food was adequate and... More

If you are in Dickinson, this is amazing food that is definitely worth a stop. Our favorites are the Pad Thai and the Crab Puffs, but the curry is pretty amazing. If you stop in and they have a special, always try it because it might not be around the next time you are in, and they have never disappointed... More

Obviously I ordered Pad Thai and was severely disappointed; not necessary with the quality of the food, but quite simply because it was not what I was used to. Pad Thai in my experiences has always meant bean sprouts, peanuts, lime, etc. Upin's Pad Thai had none of those elements. In fact, aside from being rice noodles, I wouldn't have... More

I ordered the large size peppered steak meal & wished I would have got the small. They just have a bar to eat at so most people get it to go.

We always get one meal at Upin Thai when we are in Dickinson. The place is tiny, so plan to take your food back to your home or motel. Definitely worth a try.

I have been in Dickinson for a few years now. I liked to go to Upin Thai, every now and then, to get food. I went in one day, and Upin was working the kitchen and preparing the food as usual. There was anothe rlady helping prepare the food for her in back. I liked the fact, they were wearing... More

This place is surprising. I never would've went there if I had not be told that my super picky brother actually eats here. The building is pretty run down but the food is fantastic! Ask for it extra spicy tho, I ordered not spicey and did not like it nearly as much as I do when I ask for it... More
