Karuna’s Thai Plate reopens its doors at Grant & Campbell

Restaurant overcomes major structural damage

A year ago, there were tables knocked over, broken glass on the ground, lots of dust, and scattered bricks were spread all around near the entrance of the restaurant.

That’s looking back to September 2021 after a garbage truck barreled through the facade of Karuna’s Thai Plate.

It was a complete accident but the restaurant spent the last year picking up the pieces — literally.

A year later, on Friday, September 23 to be exact, Karuna’s shared the delightful news of its dining room reopening again. The restaurant, which has been located at the intersection of Grant Road and Campbell Avenue for more than 25 years, shared the following on Facebook:

“We appreciate your patience as we get back up and running! Thank you and we look forward to serving you and seeing you all again!”

At the moment there’s no signage on the exterior but they are indeed open for business. Also, the restaurant is only accepting cash and their phone is still off the hook.

The current hours of operation are 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Tuesday – Thursday, 11 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. on Friday, and 5 – 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. So, poke your head in soon and welcome them back to the vibrant culinary scene here in Tucson.
