Tum Rup Thai Restaurant Review

: Craving Thai in Uptown? You’re not alone. Thai options abound in this area, with a range of concepts that cater to diverse urban tastes. Tum Rup Thai hits the sweet spot between the sleek joints that double as nightspots and the authentic restaurants where flavors trump aesthetics. Translation: we’d come here for the food regardless of the vibe. The pad thai is a generous bed of al dente rice noodles with the right balance of sweet and sour, topped with a piquant mix of cilantro, bean sprouts, peanuts, and green onions. Other classics that shine include the tom kha soup, laab esan and fresh spring rolls that nearly burst with mint. Spice fanatics are advised to go for the red curry or the pad prik bai horapa, a stir-fried basil dish that complements fish and chicken equally. And though the authentic flavors almost make us forget the setting, it’s hardly forgettable. The dining room buzzes with life, sporting an earth-toned, modern interior with just enough Asian art to transport you.
