Tucson - Vila Thai
I'm hearing from friends that Vila Thai is a place to avoid now. Bad food and service, no AC.
Anyone been recently?

I have never been, because my husband (who teaches at the university and has tried most of the places on University blvd) refuses to go again - I guess what you've heard about the horrible service (both the staff and the manager, in my husband's case) is true. With the heat wave (or is it here to stay?) no AC might be a deal breaker as well.
Do you have a favorite Thai place in town? I've tried Bai Thong, Bangkok Cafe and Karuna's Thai (which I liked, but would certainly categorize as a dive), but would love other recommendations.

Karuna's Thai Plate

We didn't have any troubles the last times we were there before it closed, for what it's worth. I haven't tried their new place, though.
New location on Congress is wonderful ... well-prepared food, reasonable pricing, comfortable space, decent service, great wines (half-off on Tuesdays). Give it a try - much different from the Univ Blvd experience.
