Tup Tim Thai (Gainesville, FL)

Ready to eat? Here’s a few reasons why you should try Tup Tim Thai! Located right across from campus, they have plenty of indoor seating or take out.

They do not have outdoor seating. I have dined there before the pandemic and went to get take out a few times since. If you driver there, they do have a small parking lot right behind the store. Keep your eyes peeled for the side street on the left of the restaurant! 

I was super happy when Tup Tim Thai opened last January 2020 since it offers a variety of options in terms of Asian food. They serve Thai noodle and rice dishes, as well as Japanese sushi, bento boxes, and hibachi.

Their interior is lavishly decorated with Asian paintings and figurines. They had a front area for pick up sectioned off with a plastic wall for protection. They also had hand sanitizers and masks for anyone who needed it.

Pad Thai ($11.95) is a staple here and I like how the noodles are firm and mixed well with tons of sauce, along with your choice of meat (i chose beef), egg, scallion, bean sprouts, and topped with crushed peanuts. The lime seemed cooked by the time I got it, but that might be because the noodles were steaming hot!

The Pineapple Fried Rice ($11.95) is really flavorful and has a nice curry flavor to it along with a few chunks of pineapples, egg, onions, cashews, and raisin. I got mine with chicken, but you can choose from beef, shrimp, pork, or tofu as well.

Pad See Ew ($11.95) has wider rice noodles mixed with egg, choice of meat (I chose pork), carrots, and broccoli. It has a soy sauce based brown sauce but it was definitely mild and a bit bland so if you like spicy noodles, I would recommend the Pad Drunken Noodles more than this one.

Portions are definitely worth the price and they even have a lunch special from 11am-3pm so you can get even better deals and a free spring roll with any entrée!
