Best Thai

Char's Thai

We're certainly glad that Char's Thai moved from its original Tempe digs down to the Old Pueblo in 1984. In fact, we are glad 10 times over: That's the number of consecutive Best of Tucson® wins the restaurant has earned. The menu is huge—there are even 20 appetizers on the menu—and tastes run from hot, to medium to mild. Vegetarians get to make decisions here, with more than 20 veggie-based items from which to choose. Char's takes pride in the "coconut flavor and spicy delicious taste" in their food, and it shows. Lunch specials are inexpensive and offer fried rice, fried wontons, an eggroll, soup and your main entrée. It sure beats a fast-food burger.
