We ate here on a Friday evening. The restaurant is located is a medium-sized shopping plaza along with other restaurants, a movie theater, etc. Parking wasn't an issue, though the lot was somewhat busy. We did not make reservations and arrived around 6 p.m. They...still had maybe 1/3 of their tables available, but those continued to fill up as we dined. There is no outside dining here, but their interior seemed fairly large. They also had a large number of wait staff. However, they seemed to be on a 'shared table' arrangement, as we got a variety of servers at different times. That doesn't bother me as long as they all keep the order straight and the food comes out relatively soon. They did seem to skip over the 'drink order' first, then drink delivery, then 'food order' sequence. This sometimes has resulted (elsewhere) in not getting the drink order, but they managed it. Our party of 3 opted for a mix of noodle and curry dishes. We skipped appetizers as we were trying to avoid leftovers (at our hotel). Everyone enjoyed their food and we ended up with no leftovers. By the time we left (probably 6:45 ?) it was getting full, so if you are dining later you may want to see if they take reservations. I'd gladly return here for another meal if I was in the area.More

We've eaten Thai everywhere around the world, including Thailand. We live in Denver, and Yupha's is the best we have found in Colorado. They have some unusual dishes we've never tried and our usual dishes were far better than anything in Colorado or even Palm...Springs.More

We had a quick dinner before heading to the airport. The food was amazing! Some of the best Thai food we've had in America. Fresh, veggies, cilantro and the perfect amount of spice! We had the curry puffs and chicken pad thai. Both were great!

This Thai food rivals the best we’ve had in the Minneapolis area. It would be my go-to if it were there! Awesome flavors, and we ordered vegetarian;) On top of that bubbly positive service!

This was the best trip to Arizona for food I've ever had. That's not saying a lot, unfortunately, but it was really good. I decided Yupha's was the best of the trip. I'm not sure it was the very best food, but everything combined made...it the best experience. Don't get me wrong, the food was great. It's just that the service was also great, and the value was exceptional. If I lived in Tempe, this would be my go-to Thai place.More

This was the first time I ordered from Yupha’s, and I was very pleased with the Panang Curry. The Thai Iced Tea with Cream was very good too. Yum

With the Coronavirus impact, we had to do with take out only. We ordered our food right there and a very short time later, we had our food to enjoy with a tailgate party in the parking lot. I like spicy foods and this didn't...disappoint but be careful! Order the least spicy and work your way up with the spice condiments provided. You can always add but not subtract. Great presentation as our dish was wrapped in foil and shaped as a dragon.More

Went here with family, not terrifically crowded on a Sunday night. Ordered the “fresh roll” appetizer- mango, chicken & vegetable wrapped in lettuce and thin noodle with satay sauce. Just enough heat and a lot of flavor. Ordered the duck entree about 1/3-1/2 duck expertly...cooked. But the star was the sauce - quite spicy but not overwhelming. The waitstaff was friendly; trying to anticipate your next need without being obtrusive. Will dine there again when I’m in Tempe.More

The Thai food was very good. Although it was busy, the service was attentive. I had one of the tree or four duck dishes and found it to be generous portion and very well cooked, not overdone or undercooked. My partner loved the Pad Thai....Again a generous portion. We definitely will return when in the area gaain.More

The pad thai is amazing, I love getting takeaway from here.The flavor of everything is very well balanced. It's one of the best places for thai on the east side.

My wife and I ordered the Pad Thai for the lunch special. It was nothing less than amazing! Fresh, very tasty, along with large portions. In addition, the service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant. Their food could rival any restaurant in Chicago!!

Overall a nice place for a dinner or even a date! Service was very nice and courteous! However - the food wasn't as I've wished it'll be. I was recommended by the waitress to try their duck in a red curry sauce. The Sauce indeed...was tasty! However, the duck was partially decent, some areas were chewy and many parts were actually over done with a burnt flavor :( Yet, with the high ratings the place has, I'll probably give it another try when I'll be around, and will probably just stay away of the duck...More

This place is at the top of our Thai restaurant list for Tempe. We ordered from the lunch menu and everything was fresh and delicious: soup and salad, entrées, and coconut ice cream dessert. The Thai ice tea was dark and sweet, just right. Good...service too!More
