“Not very good...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The minute I walked in I was worried. There is a strange smell about the place. It was almost empty, one other table of two. Service was prompt and friendly but then the food came. Several of us ordered various Pad Thai dishes and a couple ordered the curries. We ate it but it wasn't very good, lacked veggies and essential ingredients and presentation looked like slop on a plate. Overpriced for what they serve too! We all agreed we will never return, there is much better food in Tucson than Mina's.

“Healthy and Tasty Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

We have eating at Mina's since we moved from Houston to Tucson. We eat there probably once a week. We have liked Every single dish that we have ordered. Lots of vegetables, fresh and tasty. But their curries are "excellent". We also like their rolls and their soups. Over all we highly recommend it to anybody. J. and I.

“Delicious Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Mina's is a long time favorite. The curry's are outstanding and other favorites include Pad Thai and Pineapple Rice. Really, we've loved everthing we've had there - and the service is excellent as well. I think you'll love Mina's.

“Good Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We got there minutes before the 2pm end of lunchtime after our hike to Seven Falls on Bear Creek (excellent views along the way). We ordered one of our favorites from the lunch-specials menu: green curry chicken, accompanied by a soup and egg roll. Both the Thai-hot and regular-hot were both very good, and very reasonably priced. We will certainly return the next time we're in Tucson. A plus was the conversation with the waitress, who was subbing for her daughter and who will soon be complete her law degree. Enjoy.
