Re: “Bai Thong

How can you trust the opinions of someone who says "there are very few good places to eat in Tucson"? I can name dozens off the top of my head, and I would include Bai Thong among them. As an immigrant from the Bay Area, my standards for Thai food are pretty high, and Bai Thong is the only Thai place here I can abide (although I've never tried Thai China Siam on Oracle). Bai Thong isn't spectacularly good but I'm always happy with what I get--e.g. the shrimp with pineapple (somewhere around #6 on the entrees), the smoked/dried beef appetizer (whatever it's called)--and the Thai tea ice cream is great.

Re: “Bangkok Café

This is one of my favorite Tucson restaurants. The food is great and consistent. The curries are excellent. The service is always friendly even when it's really busy. The atmosphere is nice too. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and take guests here when they visit.

Re: “Char's Thai

So far the best Thai in Tucson (and I've had some of the best in LA). Nothing fancy, just good Thai food.

Re: “Bangkok Café

Very slow service. Thai dishes were entirely too greasy. Sorry to say we won't be back. Do yourself a favor. There are much better places. Try Char's on 5th. We also like Thai China Siam off Oracle Road.

Re: “Bai Thong

We gave the place two chances. Both times the food took entirely too long to arrive and it was always very greasy. Poor service and food wasn't wasn't happening. I won't be back a third time. Unfortunately, there are very few good places to eat in Tucson. Although I only went twice, Thai China Siam up on Oracle has been one of the best for Thai food.

+s
*Decent atmosphere
*Friendly staff
*Great curry

-s
*Specialty drinks overpriced
*Slightly overpriced overall, but justifiable

+s
*Great spice! (actually made HOT by Thai standards, not the prudish soccer-mom appeal [no disrespect, moms!])
*Large portions

-s
*Not much thought put into the decor

Re: “Bangkok Café

I love Bangkok Cafe!!! I moved to tucson from st.louis and really missed my fave. curry resturant ( Simply Thai ). My husband and I never thought another place would compare. We were happily wrong, Bangkok is great! The people are always nice.

Re: “V Fine Thai

Decent food, decent service EXCEPT IF the owner is waiting on you as most days she has a bit of an attitude. Prices are higher than most other Thai places AND "5 out of 5" on the hot scale here is really pretty mild (at least for my palate). Char's and Bangkok Cafe have this place beat on all counts.
