If you want the REAL Marquette Experience, go in and meet the unofficial "Mayor" of Marquette. This sweet petite little lady will tell you what you should order, what is good to eat (yes, she owns the joint) cooks it all in front of you, offers a few life lessons and you walk away with enough food to feed an...

My son suggested this and it was our first stop last week, when he moved to Marquette. He called about 45 minutes before arrival and our great meal was waiting for us (Orange Chicken, Hot and Sour Soup, and some sort of Plum chicken) The food was great; in fact, the Hot and Sour Soup was the best I've ever...

Some of the best Pad Thai I think i've ever had. You need to call ahead. WAAY ahead because they have such a small staff, but I promise that you will not be disappointed. Food had great flavor and was at a really great price as well. Don't miss this place when your in da u.p. eh!

This is an excellent place for Thai Takeout, but order ahead. I like the spring rolls with jasmine rice, but Pad Thai & Orange Chicken are excellent too;) Fair Prices!

Aoy and her assistant are some of the friendliest people I have ever encountered in Food Service. The food is absolutely awesome. I had never tried Thai food before visiting Rice Paddy, and it has opened so many doors to delicious food. You cannot go wrong ordering Pad Thai and Cream Cheese Wontons. It has to be their most popular... More

I really like this place. The hours and days they're open are sometimes inconvenient. The won tons and egg rolls are delicious.

This is a funky tiny place with a couple of tables. Mostly take-out. But Aoy is a fantastic Thai chef who has won awards in her homeland and now favors us with outstanding Thai food in Marquette. Everyone who enters is immediately her favorite boyfriend or girlfriend and her food makes you think she made it just for you, her... More

The food was so greasy that I only ate about half before I got sick. I don't think I will be giving them a second chance. There's better places to eat

The humble setting with limited indoor and outdoor space and cash-only policy might fool you. This is not your ordinary takeout joint. This is the domain of the delightful Aoy, and you are "boyfriend" or "girlfriend" the minute you walk in the door. I'm so blessed and privileged that my first experience with Thai cuisine was with Aoy, who even... More
