Tuptim Thai Cuisine - Pad Thai

Tuptim Thai Cuisine – Restaurant Review

Tuptim Thai Cuisine is our favorite Thai restaurant in Ann Arbor. Last December we were quite disappointed to hear that Tuptim Thai Cuisine would be closing at the end of 2016. Fortunately, we were not the only ones who love Tumptim and the restaurant has remained open.

Tuptim Thai Cuisine Food

My whole family loves Thai food, so Tuptim Thai Cuisine is perfect for us. Check out the full menu on their website.


In checking out the appetizers, my husband saw a new appetizer, Duck Tenders and wanted to try them. My daughter instantly gravitated to the Chicken Satay. We ordered both since my daughter isn’t a big fan of duck. The duck tenders were good – and not too spicy even though they had a Sriracha sauce.

The Chicken Satay was quite good. With 3 skewers, it was the perfect serving size for our family of 3. I also enjoyed the vegetables served with the satay.

Personally, I wanted to try the Crab Rangoon or Coconut Shrimp appetizers. I thought 3 appetizers was too much for the 3 of us.


We each ordered an entree for dinner. Their portions are large, so we each brought half home for tomorrow night’s dinner.

I ordered Pad Thai with chicken. I like that they offer a protein choice for the Pad Thai and that tofu is not in all of the dishes. There was a generous portion of chicken in my dish. It was definitely not short on the chicken. I opted for mild since I am not a fan of hot dishes.

My daughter ordered Fried Rice A La Hawaiian – fried rice with pineapple, spam, onions, egg, peas, and carrots. I was a little unsure of how she would like it with spam, but she reminded me that she ordered it on our last visit. She really enjoyed her dinner.

My husband had the Spicy Basil Chicken. He ordered it at a medium spicy level. It definitely wasn’t a dish for me. One bite had me reaching for my water glass!
