Tucked away in an aging little strip center, not easy to find unless you know where it is, but solid Thai food with great flavors, great value. This place opened when I was still in junior high school, and my friends & I used to come here sometimes in high school, but that was decades ago. So when I came back for a visit to Marin, I was so happy to see this place is still here! My favorite dishes are stuffed chicken wings, curries, and deep fried bananas w/coconut ice cream.

Good, authentic and flavorful Thai food in comfortable low-key neighborhood family-run place. Great for carry out. Service was excellent. I especially appreciated how careful they were about my shellfish allergy.

This place has obviously been here a long time and family owned and operated. Food was great and they accommodate requests for how spicy you want the food. Very quiet and seemed to be frequented by regular customers. I would definitely go back.

Pumpkin chicken curry had a wonderful flavor and was really good with the sticky rice. Only big problem was the house rice was over cooked and mushy, so would definitely suggest adding either the jasmine rice or sticky rice!

We have been going to Tub Tim in Corte Madera for years, and it is our favorite Thai restaurant in Marin. Thai-Vietnamese is more accurate, as the chef brings this dual sensibility to the kitchen.
A number of dishes are not seen on "standard" Thai menus, and are balanced, delicious, and attractively presented. Although not fancy, there are white linen tablecloths and napkins, and the service is attentive and smooth. Tub Tim is a family operation, and the vibe is relaxed and friendly. Prices are very reasonable, and they also have a take out option.

Outstanding food. Our server was extremely professional and truly in the business of outstanding hospitality. He may have been an owner. Will definitely come back to try other entrée choices.

Tub-Tim is my favorite Thai restaurant in the Bay Area. Maybe a dozen tables, tucked away in a small shopping center. But great food at very reasonable prices. I'm addicted to the pumpkin chicken curry. Dinner is soup, main course, and a plentiful quantity of brown or white rice for about $10. In Marin Country!

A delightful find here in Mill Valley - the tastes and texture of Thailand almost around the corner. Just delightful, cozy, quiet, and most importantly great Thai standards.

Go there often and am always aware that the service and food do not change. Excellent as always. Did try a curry dish this time that was a little to spicy for me--but know the proprietor would make it less so if I asked.

Tub Tim is blessedly Quiet with a capital Q!!!! It is our go-to place when we want to enjoy a quiet conversation. Food is consistently excellent ... fresh, well seasoned, the usual mild-medium-spicy sauces, attractive presentation. Vegetables can be swapped in or out as requested and other concerns, like less oil, are cheerfully handled.

Charbroiled beef is one of our favorites, along with ginger chicken and pad thai. Everything we've tried has been a winner!

Small and satisfying dessert menu. The fresh mango with sticky rice is a nice ending to a pleasant evening. Prices are reasonable.

The service was personable and attention to detail was lovely. They worked to accommodate food allergies. The selection was impressive. We were a bit disappointed to learn that the sauces were bottled and the vegetables were frozen but maybe that's not unusual.

This place is so tucked out of the way that I would never have known about it if it wasn't for word of mouth. I'll be one of those people and say I love this place. The service is outstanding and you never want for anything. They have some very yummy Thai food on the menu and their daily specials are for sure worth trying.

We love Tub Tim and enjoy our weekly dinner at this great family run Thai restaurant. Delicious food, friendly staff, reasonable prices and on "Open Table"... what a great recipe for a perfect meal! The Pat Kee Mao and Thai Curry are some of our favorites. Mai is a gem in the kitchen and Saya is a warm and inviting host. What it may lack in atmosphere, it rocks in taste.

We never ate here so the dining ratings are misleading. We made a reservation and when we got there, it was closed for the day. It was very inconvenient and thoughtless of the restaurant not to post it on Open Table.
