Okay Thai and Decent Service

I came here because I was in the mood for some tasty thai food, and I hadn't had tom kha gai in such a long time. The good was the service was kind and attentive, the portions were plentiful and the prices reasonable. The food was just okay. Both the summer rolls and the soup were just so so... read more

We had a meal at this restaurant which was next door to our hotel. Overall it was OK, nothing special but a very nice change from the usual American fast food that we ate most of the time on our US road trip! The menu had most of the usual dishes but one that was recommended by the owner was... More

Inedible food, so bad I was sure I was going to get sick. One person seemed to be both server and cook. They should stick to one cuisine or the other.

I have eaten here multiple times and always look forward to my next visit. The small, friendly atmosphere is worth taking time for. Every dish I have sampled has been delicious and my personal favorite is their Orange Chicken. My husband likes their Pad Thai. I like the kind gentleman/manager who is so personable, as well as the other efficient... More

Almost just drove by this place, but decided to go in on a whim and I am sure glad I did! Had on idea the food was so tasty, the sauces so fragrant and the service excellent. The menu states in a few places that almost any dish can be made vegetarian, vegan or gluten free. The menu had both... More

We went to Thai China Bistro at least ten times this month which we spent in Tucson because of the gem show, and it was delicious every time we went ! One of our favorite dishes is the glass noodle salad with chicken, which comes with a lot of onions and cilantro and is very tasty and full of flavors... More

No frills restaurant. Service was excellent. Menu offered lots of choices. I enjoyed my Thai food and my dining partner enjoyed his sushi. Also beer and wine available to enjoy with dinner. Great price for good food. Will go again.

I came here for lunch today with a friend and we both enjoyed our meals. Though the $4.98 lunch special looked good, it offered more food than I wanted. So I ordered a chicken and cashew dish that included lots of perfectly cooked, fresh vegetables. The chicken proved to be tender and tasty and the streamed rice was also good.... More
