“Something for others to live up to”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The food and service are outstanding and a very welcome addition to the new Christchurch scene. The food is thai fusion and designed to share at the table which is far more enjoyable, with generous servings. I'd highly recommend the Sticky Pork Hock although you may be sorry as its quite addictive. The Tempura Fish on a Mango Salad was a beautiful combination of flavours but my favourite is still the Angus Beef which I find hard to share. The banana fritters the best I've ever had, anywhere in the world. Service is without fault and very attentive, shown in my return of twice within a week. A suggestion from the waitress of trying an evening of just entree's and deserts as an option was fabulous and we will be back to partake in some more of those wonderful flavours.

“Lovely flavours”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We enjoyed a lovely meal, with great flavours at Spice Paragon. The first time we went there we couldn't figure how to get in because the door seemed to be locked and so we went elsewhere, turns out it was just stiff and we should have persevered because it was worth it :) We were lucky to have a table for two, as some people were sharing larger tables.
We were happy with the service, but friends who went on another night had to go and ask for a drinks menu, and then go and ask for someone to take their drinks , so hopefully just a glitch that night.

“Great food and menu.”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Sat in the outside enclosed area which was ok. Menu was outstanding. So many dishes to choose from that sounded delicious. The food was very tasty and served in great style. Good portion sizes. Not a bad wine selection and as with the food all reasonable prices. Service was very attentive and the staff knew their dishes and ingredients well. All in all a very good experience.

“Nice Find - Thank You tripadvisor”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Thanx to tripadvisor I found this restaurant and the food met my expectations. It wasn't the best Thai food I ever had, but it was very good. Highly recommended and also a great atmosphere.

“A Special Meal”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

This Thai-inspired restaurant offers innovative dishes using obviously fresh ingredients. A party of five, we had lamb shanks, beef ribs, and tempura fish, all delicious and plentiful. We got two orders of each, and it was too much food. Also had interesting appetizers.
