After driving past Thai Paradise for over 8 years we finally decided to stop. We arrived about 6:30 on a Friday night to find the place almost packed. While we were escorted to a table immediately, those arriving after had a short wait. The decor was a little dated, so don't expect a trendy nigh on the town. What you... More

The food was delicious, the service quick and friendly and the prices great. There weren't many people which made me a bit nervous, but my worries were put aside with the first bite. Give it a try!

Service took a little bit longer than usual, everything tasted amazing though from the soup to the tofu to the noodles! Definitely would come back again in a heart beat. Server even made a deep fried ice cream for my cousins birthday! Great food, Great Place, Could use an update throughout..

Who could ask for anything more! The ingredients are fresh and authentic. The food is wonderful. The service is excellent! The prices are low! You can choose how spicy you would like your food cooked also - for those of us who like a little spice but not too hot!

We have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed by the food. The service is as excellent as the food. Occasionally we have been here with a large group (12+) and the service has been wonderful. I usually get one of the curry dishes which are very good and the ginger stir-fry is also very good. Don't... More

We have been driving by this restaurant for 5 years and never stopped, until yesterday. Now we wish we had gone sooner. The outside isn't the Taj Mahal ,but the inside is spotless and the food is excellent. Our waitress was all so friendly and explained each dish we were unfamiliar with. Service was quick and food warm and very... More

This is one of our favorite places to take out-of-town guests. Always a hit. The food is great, and one of the few places in Franklin where a vegetarian can eat without always getting the same thing off a limited menu. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is very nice! My favorite dish is the Green... More
