“Average, not great, not bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is a nice little restaurant in a strip mall off the main street in Salem. It has limited seating but there was definitely availability on this Thursday evening. Service was good and quick. We ordered the salad rolls for apps and while they were fresh and flavorful, they were not up to par with some other Thai restaurants in the area. I had Ladnar noodles and again, while tasty, it just was not the flavor notes that generally accompanies Thai cuisine, and even seemed a bit odd. My BFF had the Floating Market, a seafood soup, that was edible but the calamari was very fishy in flavor and unlike the texture of cooked calamari we have experienced before. With other better Thai choices in Salem, we won't be going back to Tup Tim.

“Consistently Tasty Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

My husband and I love Thai food and try it everywhere we go when we travel. When we are at home, we frequent Tup Tim for well prepared and very flavorful dishes that are not greasy which we appreciate. We enjoy Thai food whether it's spicy or mild, and at Tup Tim they make a dish to your level of spicy or mild without compromising flavor. Have tried a number of dishes and really love the chili basil, pineapple rice, and drunken noodles. The Thai iced tea is excellent. We usually get take out, but occasionally eat in the restaurant. There has been some updating to the interior which has made the ambiance a little more cozy.

“Very good food, great value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Very reasonable for very good food. Service is good, Atmosphere, like other Thai places is spartan. I am not as big a fan of Thai food as my wife, but I always find items that are very tasty to delicious. We like to go there a lot, as do our friends.

“Not much for atmosphere but excellent service and great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012 via mobile

We had dinner with friends at the Tup Tim restaurant Friday February 24, 2011. We had the food served family style, choosing phad Thai, yellow curry and another dish I can't remember the name of. The tables are small so the waiter who is probably also the cook and owner, brought us a smaller side table to hold all the food. Each dish was excellent and very flavorful. If you like Thai food, I can recommend this place without reservation. It is a small sort of hole in the wall place but the food and service were really good. Better go check this one out before people find out about it. We had more food than the four of us could eat and the cost was less than $50 including a good tip.

“Best Thai food in the area!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

My husband and I have recently moved up to the Pacific Northwest and found this place the weekend we moved up here. We absolutely LOVE the food. Its authentic and has so much flavor. We are regulars at this place!!! We love the red curry, larb and noodles. Each time we go in we try something new and we are never disappointed. The ambiance is not very impressive but it doesnt matter when the food is this good! Promise you wont be disappointed.
