I travel to Topeka once or twice a year to join a group of sewists at The Sewing Workshop. Several of us always make a point to visit Tuptim Thai. It is owned and managed by a couple from Thailand. The food is delicious, and the service friendly.

My husband loves their red curry and I love their basil meals! The money bags are excellent and dessert was great, too! We arrived at 11:30am and didn't have to wait on food, but if you arrive at noon or after, the restaurant is full. We observed several carry out orders. Always enjoy our meals!!!

OK, maybe I've overstated since I've never been to Thailand, but I can't imagine anything better than Tuptim Thai. First, the young woman who seated us was so friendly and made some recommendations based on our questions. Then, our server, Lorri, was great! She, too, gave us great advice about how to order (since we were newbies) and what was... More

For Topeka, very good. As a huge fan of Thai food and a frequent visitor to Thailand the food is average at best. The staff are friendly. The restaurant is welcoming and clean.

I had read the great reviews and was able to take in a visit on a Friday evening at 8:00 or so. No waiting and a nice atmosphere. My server, Lorri gave me a fine recommendation of the three selections I had made. The Cashew chicken was a great mix of rice, vegetables and chicken. I tried a half order... More

We visited on recommendation from a friend. The server was attentive but not overly, the food was delicious although one dish which she described as mild and we asked for not spicy, definitely had some heat! Be sure to specify 'no heat' or for a child etc

Ate here before and everything was great. Came back 15 minutes before close and was told by the African American woman that they were short staff (there were 2 tables that were eating) and that they could only do take out. There was another waitress there smiling during this whole thing, in which the employee was clearly fabricating a story... More

Service was great on a weeknight. Tried Money Bags appetizer based on reviews. They did not disappoint, though rich and sweet. The Mushroom Lovers entree was very good. Two of us ate for $40 and that included an appetizer. Asked for spice tray after reading reviews. Nice option for Thai restaurants to insure one gets the level of heat they... More

We had lunch here yesterday and it was fabulous. I chose Crab Fried Rice along with the Hot and Sour Soup. Both were really good and the crab was excellent. The rice is perfectly cooked and just the right portion size. The soup is quite tasty with a lot of tofu. My spouse chose another lunch special that consisted of... More
