Truly a gem

Went for supper with my wife. Six thirty on Friday. Excellent service and the best Thai food I have ever eaten. And I've had lots of Thai over the years. House salad with peanut dressing, chicken panang, cashew stir fry, and Tiger beer. Price was reasonable, the place is pretty dumpy but I... read more

The cashew chicken was amazing, the service was good, the servers had good attitudes, and they made sure we had enough to drink

We got into the restaurant just after a large group so service was slow. The wait staff remained cool in the face of a packed place. They kept our drinks full. The food was very good. The ginger stir fry was excellent, as was the pad Thai. We would easily eat there again.

Drove quite a long distance to eat at Thai Paradise to satisfy an Asian food craving. This place was well worth the drive too. The green curry was perfectly spicy enough, full of firm vegetables, and and came with a huge bowl of rice. Also ordered delicous Lad Na and Basil rolls. Good selection of beer, sake and wine too....

Great food at reasonable prices. Friendly service. Facilities are very nice. We always take our visiters there. They cook my food to match my dietary guidelines.

This is the place for great Thai. Try the catfish (cooked many ways). Good Service, open for lunch and dinner.

Though many locals and the hotel I stayed at raved about the food at this restaurant, there seemed not to be enough staff available to handle Friday night dinners and a party going on in the back. Walked out after sitting for 15 minutes without getting a menu or a glass of water

We reserved for a group 3 to 4 weeks in advance. The restaurant was told there would be a minimum of 30 people, but when we arrived a room that looked more for storage was set up for a table for 12. Several of us had to scramble to put tables together and find enough chairs for what turned out... More

The lunch phad thai is amazing.. it's easily two meals AND it's gluten free! The staff is very friendly. We often call for take out from my work and so far we haven't found anything we don't like on the menu!

The wife and I ate lunch here when we got to town. The food was very good and the bill came to $14.00. If your in the area you have to try this.
