When traveling we love to search out Thai resturants. Historic downtown Pocatello, Id has a gem. The owners are so freindly and genuine and came out to visit with us upon our mentioning we visited with him a year ago. Von shows so much love of his resturant. The food is great! We love thai food and find it whereever we travel or at home. The food can be as spicy as 5 or as non spicy as 1, you choose. Try this gem, the food, service and location are great!

Excellent Thai Cuisine

This was a lovely surprise in Pocatello. Authentic Thai cuisine, very well prepared, and served in generous portions. The staff will ask you the degree of spiciness you prefer (on a 1-5 scale). I like it spicy and so I tried "3" the first time, and it was wonderful. Not so hot as to wipe out the... read more

The food was great. We were the only customers for the entire time. the waitress greeted us, and seated us, asked what to drink, and came back 5 minutes later without any drinks. The food came rather quickly, but she only brought one plate, and we were eating family style. I had to call her out from the kitchen to... More

We had lunch here with our client and they have the size to accommodate larger parties. The service was good as there was basically one person running the whole show. I was surprised at how large the portions were which made lunch a little heavy and maybe why I would recommend this place for dinner, and more for family style... More

Pretty decent Thai Food in Pocatello. Overall the food just seems to lack the spicy savory hotness I associate with excellent Thai. Maybe the restaurant tones the spiciness down to accommodate the rather bland taste buds of the southeast Idaho population, not sure. Some people rave about the Thai food here, but having spent a fair amount of time in... More

Very good food, we had both the Panang and Red Curries. The portions were the largest we have ever seen, and the taste was quite good.

While from other reviewers experiences would tend to disagree with me, I've tried this three times and been disappointed in the taste and quality of the food each time. I tend to be adventurous and try new things on the large menu, and maybe I should just stick to things I know I'll like.

The five of us ate at Thai Paradise to celebrate my son's graduation. The food was excellent. We each had a different dish and everyone was happy. Some of the best Thai food EVER! We had a table in the back and enjoyed the brick-walled vintage atmosphere. The people waiting on our table were friendly and made good suggestions for... More

Yesterday, we were driving back to Salt lake City; and randomly entered into this restaurant for lunch. We loved the food. Enjoyed the ambiance. We spent 35 dollars for three persons - not bad. It would cost close to 50 dollars in SLC for the same type of food. We highly recommend this restaurant.
