Yupha's Thai Kitchen in Tempe Serves Satisfying Thai at an Affordable Price

Finding a Thai restaurant in the Valley is no problem. Finding an honest to goodness, true Thai place in the Valley -- now that's a struggle. Here at Chow Bella, we feel the pain of those cold, lonely nights when satisfyingly spicy Thai food cannot be found. Good news: We've found the remedy in a busy little shopping plaza in Tempe.

Located right next door to Pollack Tempe Cinemas, a bustling budget movie theater known for its $3 movies and collection of life-sized wax figures, Yupha's Thai Kitchen holds its own. A peek into the restaurant's large-windowed wall reveals a lush dining space, complete with a gold-faced Thai Buddha serenely watching over all his visitors.
