Great food at a super price

Really wonderful eating spot, and especially great pricing of the food. We pre-ordered and picked it up. There's a few tables for dining in. Our Orange Chicken and Chicken with Wild Plum sauce dishes were terrific. You can't beat their prices and the food is great!

Maybe because we regularly frequent a Thai restaurant that is really good in Toledo our opinions are tilted, but this was not what we had hoped. First, we requested tofu for one of the orders and got chicken; second, requested extra vegetables on two orders and that didn't happen. Of the four entrees ordered, only one passed the test, which... More

Since I live in the area, I have had the pleasure of eating nearly every place in Marquette, The Rice Paddy is a MUST! The food is always top-notch, Flavorful, freshly made, and above all... nice a steamy hot. Aoy, the owner, really puts effort into everything that goes out her door and I have not found that quality anywhere... More

A Marquette standard and some of the best Thai food I have had in the midwest. Always good food and more than fair portion sizes at a great price. Two spring rolls are a meal in themselves!!

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
