Top Five International Restaurants in the One and Only Tuscaloosa

Ruan Thai
On top of a hill overlooking University Blvd, along the strip, sits a small house packed with flavor. Ruan Thai offers an incredible selection of Thai food inside the house and out on their patio. From fried rice served in a pineapple to Thailand’s take on BBQ, you’re sure to experience a unique night.

Mr. Chen’s
This authentic Chinese local favorite operates alongside a Chinese grocery store serving some of the best Chinese in town. The wide selection offers everything for any novice to pro when it comes to eastern flavors. Most locals will tell you it’s the best they’ve had and were sure you will agree.

This understated Indian restaurant stands out for its great flavor, and delicious naan, and its palpable spice. It certainly stands out for its authenticity and charm in a southern city. The student special is a popular choice among the university and city’s residents alike.

Along Temerson Square is a little German café that serves great coffee, delightful pastries, and baked goods. The cozy interior and comfort of warm baked strudel or a great Danish are a sure-fire way to elicit the charms of Deutschland.

Hooligans have for a long time been a staple of Mediterranean cuisine in Tuscaloosa. With a casual atmosphere, their genuine focus on serving great food has consistently brought people together under their red canopy lined building. Gyros, falafels, burgers and a laid back attitude are what makes this a local icon.
