Great fresh food!

You can't beat the menu and food they make at this small food stop. You can have take out or eat at their small bar(no alcohol) area there. So much flavor and really good prices.

We stopped in here on New Years Day. The owner asked if we had hangovers and mentioned that she made extra hot and sour soup for all the customers with hangovers. She was a hoot! I ordered the chicken pad thai and it was the best I've ever had! I will be stopping in here whenever I'm in the area.... More

Fast, friendly and affordable. One time isn't enough. I would call ahead and place your order to avoid a long wait. The owner is supper friendly and really cares about her food.

You may have to wait a while sometimes to get your food but it's worth it if you want that hearty Thai soul food to brighten up your day (maybe even your week!). I have eaten at over 100 Thai restaurants in my life and I would rank Paddy in the top 10 still. That's including over 40 restaurants in... More

Amazing food . . . low prices. Just remember that they only accept cash and there's almost always a wait (even when you call ahead). It's absolutely worth it. Did I mention that the food is amazingly fantastic?

There is nothing at Oy's restaurant that you will not like..... :) You need to call ahead,a as the wait to pick up is usually 45 mins, especially with the college students in attendance.

Oh my Gosh!!!! Just look at the photo..Is this where you expect to find the best Thai food you have ever had?? Well it is! We where in Marquette for a wedding last weekend. A graduate of close-by, Northern Michigan University, recommended it. After ordering take-out, we were told to give them an hour(30 minutes is the norm). Upon arriving... More
