Downtown Main Street location. Particularly great for lunch when checking out the quaint local shops. Year in and year out, always rates the best Thai food in town.

The food is sure to make you happy and the idea that you are supporting a local family owned business is awesome too.

We love Thai food. The best we have had in in Thailand; so of course, we are always on the lookout for a local restaurant that is as good. Tipps is very close to that perfect restaurant. The food is family run and authentic. Mixed drinks are iffy, though. I stay with the Thai Iced Tea or Beer. Food is... More

Tipps Thai has been a fixture on Ventura's Main Street since1983. It has consistently been rated as one of the best Thai food restaurants in Ventura County. My friends and I stopped by for lunch yesterday and I am glad to say that it still serves excellent food and gives wonderful service! We each ordered one of their lunch specials.... More

We've been coming to Tipps for years. Have gotten to know the family. Chang is wonderful for the community and regularly helps out the service organizations. We have also had business meetings here. They have always taken good care of us.

I don't understand why people like this place. We have tried it on a number of occasions. The food is average. Service if fair. The facility tired. The food tastes like some of it is canned. Not the fresh flavors I usually get with Thai. The owner is loved in Ventura but if you don't know him, prepared to be... More

Thai food is the perfect meal after the crazy Christmas Day rush so off we go to Tipps. First visit for dinner. Have been to lunch here once before for a business lunch. Good food but nothing stands out to make it a 5-star. We had a party of six adults after a day of hiking on Santa Cruz Island... More
