Enjoyed my lunch and the service
Enjoyed my lunch and the service was great. Really enjoyed that it is a quiet restaurant for lunch, something not easily found these days. Read the review in Chicago magazine and did not agree with the comment about the decor. It's a neighborhood restaurant and quite nicely decorated -- love the peach walls. The only disappointment was the Pad Thai. Chicago magazine raved about it, but it was not what I expected. Otherwise would recommend it to anyone in the area. Will go there again.

My son took me out for a Mother's Day dinner and we had a wonderful evening. This was my third time at Tub Tim Thai, and as always, I really enjoyed their signature appetizer. My green curry entree was also excellent and my son's beef with peanut sauce was good as well. The service was helpful and expedient.

A Suburban Favorite
Generally, we think that north suburban restaurants are average at best. Tub Tim Thai, however, is one of the exceptions. We love this place. It is such a little gem! The decor is not fancy. The food is well presented and always delicious. Portions are decent and are always full of fresh herbs and garnished with fresh vegetables. We started by splitting a shrimp salad with a vinaigrette. For dinner, we had the scallops...One of their smaller entrees. Also had the chicken Penang curry and the chicken basil fried rice. Both were loaded with chicken. The curry was nicely spiced with a little heat and nicely complemented the scallops. The staff is very friendly and kind. The food is reasonably priced.

Great authentic food, big menu, great service (pleasant, accommodating, & quick), cool ambience. Cost-friendly too!

You've come to the right place!
With its modest storefront, along a busy suburban-Chicago village street, you might not think much of Tub Tim Thai. But when you enter, and look around, noticing the neatly set, cloth covered tables, you feel you're in for a Thai treat. Picking up the menu, you know this will be so! And looking over the variety of traditional Thai offerings, your mouth begins to water as you make your selection. And as you enjoy your meal, you will be most pleased that you came to the right place.

Tub Tim Thai
Very good Thai. Nothing you'll rave about for days but a stand up place w/decent portions, reasonable prices & quite tasty. Sea scallops were excellent. You'll leave glad you went but I'd not drive out of my way for it.

The excellent food here, reminds me of my recent trip to Thailand. Not overloaded with hot sauce, servers ask you how hot. Go with number 2.
Lots of traditional food, different curries, and Thai beer.
I will come back again and again and again.

Their food is not drenched in sauce, like other restaurants. The staff are friendly. They ask you how hot you want your food. My family has been going there for awhile and love the paad Thai.
Can't wait to go back again!!!
