Tuptim Thai Cuisine – Restaurant Review

Spread the love

Tuptim Thai Cuisine is our favorite Thai restaurant in Ann Arbor. During the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown we ordered from them several times and had great pickup service. When you arrived you would call and they would place your food outside on a cart with condiments. No need to enter the restaurant. They now offer indoor dining again, but are still doing a robust takeout business – but you have to go to the counter inside for pickup.

About Tuptim Thai

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. You can also order to-go from 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. But, 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. Over the years, I have ordered it with chicken, shrimp, and tofu. 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. (Note: Hawaiian fried rice now comes with your choice of protein with spam as one of the options)

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!

Tuptim is a great choice when you have a group that includes meat-eaters, pescetarians, and vegetarians. There are a number of options for each group (note vegetarians may need to order dishes without fish sauce)
