Good food and good prices. My green curry was fantastic and my wife's curry was nice. A bit of a walk to the toilets but overall we were satisfied with our experience.

We first visited Tuptim Thai several months ago, and they are now firmly on our visit list. Their food is excellently prepared, and has a fresh and piquant taste. The range of dishes is wide, and we are still working our way through the menu.

Lovely food, great timing. great hospitality, kind courteous service, cheerful but relaxed staff. Cosy and comfortable with a lux feel decor. Will definitely want to go back there. Good overall wine list too. Beautiful view of the bay for many tables. Coming up summer I'll be using their outdoor bayview table seating, roomy enough there too, no table clutter-great! Just wished I'd had more time to enjoy the rest of the menu. Thanks to the staff.

It's a small narrow restaurant it wasn't busy for a Friday night but found the three women staff members not that attentative to our table of 11 service was under par they were by no means rushed off their feet & showed little interest in attending to us. First impression wasn't good when one of our group tried to order a James Boag beer sorry we don't have any choose another beer sorry we don't have that either. It took three serves of Vegetarian Spring Rolls to find out they didn't have Chicken Spring Rolls & the Roti Bread was average. We had a couple of seafood dishes especially the prawns they were big crisp & delicious. Would I recommend this restaurant or comeback No.

Authentic Thai food at a nice waterfront location in Geelong. Very pleasant service. Note: as the food is served fresh; it will take time to get your order. Recommend to not to go if you are super hungry as it may take time 😊 Enjoyed our dining and value for money

Food was very good - not 'wow amazing' but still good. We ordered individual meals (rather than sharing) and they all came out at different times, which was odd. But overall, nothing really to complain about, and we all enjoyed the evening. They were very busy that night too.

Beautiful food. A little long to wait, and the meals didn't come out together - but was with a big group on a Tuesday night so willing to make a concession. Would be great takeaway or with 2-4 people (smaller party) to get the best return on investment.
