    Dissappointing

    Curry chicken wrap tasted like a saw dust sprinkled with sand. Chicken in teriyaki drumroll spent their previous life under the warming lights as some other dish before it had bin dunked in teriyaki and wrapped along with some wilted lettuce. A single slice of mushroom floating in $3 coconut soup required a company of shrimp or chicken that had to be purchased separately. Stay away - any Thai and most of Chinese restaurants will do much better.

    Good good, good customer service. What else do you need from a $8/meal place? Oh and they don't give me problems with coupons, so great!

    Had low expectations for this fast-food-ish asian bowl place. However, the food was actually good, portions were very big, and I fed the whole family for under $25. I tried the spring rolls (good), and chicken gyoza (ok). Tofu with brown rice (ok) and kids had chicken lo mein (good). A nice surprise and I will return to try more!

    I stop here for lunch pretty often. They have a good selection, and it's good for a quick lunch or dinner.

    Best quality food for your money

    This is a great place, located close to GTech. Yes, it's more appreciated by the local students, but I know quiet a few people (not students) who come regularly to enjoy the food. The quality is great as well as the taste, and it is cooked and served quickly. For this money, it's the best place.

    This is always a great place for a great noodle bowl, Thai Basil roll or a yummy rice plate. I actually just went tonight and had the Lo Mein - always yummy!

    Tin Drum is your normal asian/thai fare. The only problem I have with it is the small eat-in area at the restaurant. The lines can get kind of long and there is limited seating. Get there early or get it delivered.

    Innovative wraps
    lilraabs (24 reviews)

    The roti wrap is a fantastic innovation, and was great with tofu tempura. The pad thai was great and bursting with flavor. The concept is different, allowing it to combine flavors from South and South East Asia. Now it's time to add Central Asia, maybe...

    Absolutely Average Asian.
    BlueDevilBill (10 reviews)
    6/03/2008

    An average asian effort all around. Some dishes are good; others not so much. And the dishes can be inconsistent from visit to visit. Also, the setting is... how shall I say... stark at best. Cold and lacking warmth. It's okay for an occasional Asian fix, but there's better for the money in my book.

    Very nice meal - I thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant was very busy, so you might want to avoid the peak lunch rush time, but the food was great and the staff was friendly.

    If you can avoid most of the wait around lunch and find a parking spot in this crowded complex, you can enjoy a reasonable and tasty meal. I will definitely be back.

    I used to love this restaurant but lately when I have gone things just don't taste like they used to. I will not be returning anymore.

    Please be specific about critique and we can address and investigate a inconsistency. We make almost every sauce in house and because we are fresh to order, we cannot rely on prepackaged frozen items like some chains choose to do. Because of this sometimes taste will vary slightly although we try very very hard to nail it every time. Thanks

    Busy! Good Portions

    This place is always packed at lunch. Some of this is due to location but overall the food is pretty good too. I have had other Thai I like better but the portions here are definitely larger. I will go back but won't be there every week. We often go to Rice Thai on Hammond because it is easier to get in and out of but the portions aren't up to par with Tin Drum.

    I went there just once - but liked it enough to go back there again. Prices were reasonable. The wait was a little longer than I would have liked - but expected at peak lunch times.
