UPDATE: Char's Thai employee Paul Yohn says that unfortunately due to a delay on the new tile they're installing, the restaurant will remain closed until at least March 27.

Thai food junkies in Tucson have likely had a rough couple of weeks. That's because one of the most beloved spots for pad thai and tom kha in town, Char's Thai, has been closed since the beginning of the month. 

If you've tried to stop in between March 7 and this morning, you likely saw a sign that said the spot was closed for kitchen repairs. Well, the wait is finally over and Char's Thai, located at 5039 E. Fifth St., is back open. You can pop in today from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. to get your Char's fix satiated. 

In case you're wondering what all of the fuss is about, here's what we had to say about the Best of Tucson 2014 winner:
Char's is a little off the beaten path, but if you're looking for the mint, lemongrass and lime flavors of Thailand, it's worth heading over to Fifth Street for this long-time Best of Tucson winner. The dining room isn't likely to wow you, but there's magic happening back in the kitchen and sure, you could go with something off the Chinese menu, but why not live a little and try something new? The panang curry, in particular, shines but find something on the menu with lemongrass and enjoy one night in Bangkok (sorry if that song's in your head now).
