We tried to order chicken satay and were told they were out of peanut sauce. In a Thai restaurant??? They were also out of pork. We were a large group and ordered many different things. The universal reaction seemed to be "OK but I've had better." Everything was bland whether the request was for mild, medium, or hot.

This place is NOT open on Saturday for lunch. We drove her special for lunch from Globe only to discover it was closed. Thankfully good sushi bar near by but really had a taste for Thai

This is a small owner-operated restaurant next to the big Whole Foods on the east side at River and Craycroft. I am particularly fond of the green curry, which I order with chicken. I order it medium (not too hot) so that I can taste the other wonderful flavors. It comes with tender bamboo shoots, beans, and green peppers. I... More

I have visited Mina's Thai restaurant in Tucson several times with different people. Each visit has consistently been excellent. The food has been fresh and the service is great. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates fresh home cooked meals, because that is what you will receive at this restaurant.

The egg rolls were not fried which and tasted very good. They came with a mild sauce that tasted very good. The soup was... More

Nailbanger Here Again; Where to start. How about the Owner and her grandchildren coloring at the table next to us during dinner? Or how about the small portions. Or the poor service. Or the average food. Need I go on? This place is highly over rated by local. Either they have never had great Thai Food or there is a... More

The minute I walked in I was worried. There is a strange smell about the place. It was almost empty, one other table of two. Service was prompt and friendly but then the food came. Several of us ordered various Pad Thai dishes and a couple ordered the curries. We ate it but it wasn't very good, lacked veggies and... More

We have eating at Mina's since we moved from Houston to Tucson. We eat there probably once a week. We have liked Every single dish that we have ordered. Lots of vegetables, fresh and tasty. But their curries are "excellent". We also like their rolls and their soups. Over all we highly recommend it to anybody. J. and I.

Mina's is a long time favorite. The curry's are outstanding and other favorites include Pad Thai and Pineapple Rice. Really, we've loved everthing we've had there - and the service is excellent as well. I think you'll love Mina's.
