“Food - Great Bookings - Questionable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Great food with a fantastic mix of flavours and if it is warm you can sit outside under the trees. They need to think further about the timings of their bookings - our table was not ready until quite some time after our booking. Maybe looking for some extra drinks orders?

“This ain't Paradise!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

I don't even know where to start. Oh , yeah maybe first thing i should say is that i can't kill this taste of disgusting shrimp that was served in some kind of maggi-glue sauce and called braised king prawn in garlic. Than pineapple fried rice arrived with frozen peas and not chili how traditional Thai cuisine dictates but way to much pepper. Red Snapper was in the same sauce that shrimp, but it was called 3 flavors sauce. All of the three flavors were crap.
I can go on and on, but it's just a waste of time. This place have nothing to do with Thai Food and the sad part is that it wasn't cheap. It was one of the worst foods i ever ate in my life.

“A good Thai in Shanghai but you need to wait...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

I would like to say that it is one of the best thai food in Shanghai even though you need to wait a couple of hours!!! Yes, this is one of our worst experience of all also. We booked a table for 7:30pm and started ordering 9pm. If it is busy, just say, we do not have space.
On the other hand, the ambience is perfect, a little bit dark in and outside the restaurant but not so disturbing.
Food is good but the menu is nearly the same as Lost Heaven Restaurant. I would rather prefer one of their menus shall change otherwise the thai food quality will seem to take the inspiration from Yunnan food.

“Best Thai in Shanghai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

I've been many times at Coconut Paradise. I must say this is the coolest thai in Shanghai. Good food, great atmosphere, beautiful garden and very nice people!!! Try the Crab!!!

“Peaceful Thai Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Very dark Thai restaurant in the heart of Puxi. Food was really good and the numerous waiters were offering service with a smile. Good place to go with a date, very romantic, very dark. Lovely outdoor seating area. Great Ice cream for dessert!
