Look inside.....that's where the good stuff is!

Food is the show here! We have eaten here once or twice a month for years and never been disappointed.

We always enjoy going here for our Thai food. Quick and easy and a good value with lots of choices. The restaurant is convenient on Georgia Rd. just a few miles south of Franklin. Always a good meal.

It finally dawned on me why I keep going back to Thai Paradise every opportunity I have. (It's 60 miles from my home.) In one word, it's "CONSISTENCY". I've eaten in a number of Thai restaurants. I've enjoyed really great meals in Manhattan's Topaz Thai (one of NYC's best Thai restaurants), BUT, I've also had a couple of just "okay"... More

The quality of its food, the noisy dining rooms, and the prices rank this place below Thai restaurants in Franklin and elsewhere. After stumbling through Its pitch-dark parking lot we found slow service and the worst basil rolls we have ever been served; lettuce-laden with only a hint of basil. The toasted tofu in the pad thai was unique but... More

by the way it looks on the outside. Unassuming and not well signed, this Thai restaurant was a nice find on our way home from Tallulah Gorge. Expansive menu, fresh cooked food and good service. If you are more concerned with taste rather than atmosphere, Thai Paradise is a good choice.

Outstanding meal with friendly & prompt service. My wife and I are vegan as per my doctor's recommendation. There were ample choices to comply with this issue. I had a curry vegetable entree that had the best flavor of any Thai or Indian dish I have ever tasted. The vegetable soup with tofu had a wonderful Miso flavor with very... More

This is our favorite Thai place. It is family owned and run. The food is consistently delicious. It is prepared to order so be patient when they are busy, but it is always worth any wait.

Small family run, clean restaurant. Husband and I split Tom Kha soup, cheese rolls, and crispy basil catfish. Husband also had Thai tea. Everything was delicious, fresh and made from scratch. We will come back if we are in the area.
