China Thai is a nice, small, local and mostly undiscovered eating place. We particularly enjoy the Thai and Chinese lunch special which are spiced to order. A nice quiet, and inexpensive lunch for business folks in the area.

Years ago we ate here many times and it was always good. Then it closed down for several years. We recently noticed it had reopened in the space which was also formerly a Chinese restaurant. Unfortunately it seems that they just appropriated to former restaurant's name and not its good food. They should not be allowed to use the good... More

We've ordered delivery from China-Thai before and it's always been quite good....so I'm not quite sure what happened tonight. Waited nearly 2 hrs for delivery, the guy who answered the phone couldn't even tell us if the food was on it's way, or even if the order had been placed. When it finally did arrive, my twice-cooked pork (ordered Thai... More

I have been going to China-Thai for years. I moved away from Tucson for 5 years, and when I returned, I was so happy I could eat at China-Thai again! I consider myself a foodie, and this is honestly the best Thai food I have ever had. The Thai food is very authentic and they also have excellent Chinese dishes... More

This may not be the most elegant restaurant around but, we do enjoy their food. The new place is better that old building. Service was very good. And we thought the price reasonable.

My wife and I really like Thai cuisine. We went to the restaurant on a Saturday evening. No one was available to seat us and no other diner was in the restaurant. we got 2 menues and seated ourselves. Perhaps 10 minutes later one of the staff walked through to bring takeout food to a customer who had entered and... More

I may be off on the date of our visit a bit, sorry for that. But we walked to the restaurant, which was not yet open, and looked in the window. Never have we seen so much trash and dirty dishes and silverware laying around a restaurant as we did that day. We decided to pass on this one!

The Thai at this restaurant is always excellent, and a staple of my week. The prices are very reasonable. They recently moved to a new space, that's nicer than the old space and has a much better parking situation. Unfortunately since the move, service as suffered. I've seen many parties come in, wait in vain to get seated (the hostess... More

We have been eating at China-Thai for several years. The old location was warm, friendly, and welcoming - if a bit dated. They have moved a wee bit to the east into a sort of mall type area. The food is outstanding as always. It is truly worth the visit. But, the new digs are terrible. One large (appx 50... More

It will be hard to choose what you want when you go here...not much on atmosphere but the food, depending on what you order, is really tasty. We LOVE their pad thai.
