The Paradise Chicken is really good. I order the Yellow Pad Thai noodles, but they have changed the noodle they use...not as good. Service is slow, when you ask for something don't expect to get it promptly!

My wife and I tried this restaurant about 3 months ago. We thought we had found a gem. Service and food were good the first time. Since our initial visit we have been back 3 more times. Each time there were no paper towels in the bathroom and the bathroom floor is very sticky every time. The food is not... More

We ordered a salad for $6 expecting a small place. Well, it was a dinner plate piled 3" high and delicious. So was fried rice. Again, huge and loaded with goodies.

The soups and curries are excellent here. The vegetables and fruit are very fresh and crisp. My wife also enjoyed the almond chicken and my girls liked the rice and the orange chicken. The prices is reasonable and the food is extremely tasty and healthy.

I guess good service really is tough to find--wait--they had good service before. Today a huge miss. I raved about this one food dish, and now I feel disgusted to give them my business. Was in a hurry so I called 6 or 7 minutes, clearly pleaded with Charlotte that I wanted them to start my order. Guess what-- you... More

I was on my way out of town after a busy work weekend and this restaurant was still serving at 8:50 PM on a Sunday. I was greeted graciously, even though they were closing in 10 minutes and was served an excellent dish, quickly and encouraged to take my time. I will definitely return the next time I am in...

Server was also the music guy--nice mix of tunes, relaxed atmosphere. He was probably 20-something but had great people skills. Good energy Tried the pumpkin curry dish with chicken & tofu. My first visit here, so glad I now have a favorite dining spot in Payson. Drove up from Phoenix for the day, already have my favorite Thai place in... More

Ayothaya moved from the corner on 260 to the Basha's strip mall. Fewer seats but the same excellent food prepared quickly. Great choices from fried rice to exotic Thai dishes. The move provides reduced overhead which may translate into keeping prices reasonable.
