While in college, we would frequently get Aoy's amazing Thai food! Great value and delicious food, honestly the best Thai food I have EVER had. The Pad Thai is my favorite. Cream Cheese Wontons are a MUST. I make sure to go to Rice Paddy everytime I am back in Marquette.

Everyone in Marquette knows the rice paddy has wonderful food made by a great lady who is loyal to the Marquette community and her original home country. Greeted by a warm smile, you will bring home a most satisfying meal. However be prepared to give this one woman show a little extra time to prepare your to-go meal! You won't... More

My husband and I stopped by the Rice Paddy for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Though it's not exactly an eat in place , more of a take out. You can sit up at the bar and eat. The food was delicious, large portions and super friendly service by the owner.

But awesome food none the less. First off, the food is pretty good. The ginger chicken is the best i've had. Better than average sweet and sour but the pepper steak is a bit lacking, but everything is cheap enough that it's all a great deal and it's all freashly made. Aoy is a great Lady who talks with her... More

One wouldn't normally expect to find amazing Thai food in the Upper Peninsula, but I've eaten a lot of Thai and the Rice Paddy is still the best I've ever had. The owner is a Thai woman, extraordinarily friendly and well liked in the community. The food is reasonably priced and the portions are large. It's never too spicy, unless... More

You can wait while your food is cooked and it is fresh and delicious. Owner is friendly and tells it like it is........."not Macdonalds."..........portions are generous.

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...
