Thai Paradise Restaurant is a real find! Tucked away in what looks like a medical center, it is a family owned and operated (10 years) local favorite. It's cozy (not crowded) w/ just 8 tables, but worth the wait. To-go is real popular here.

Authentic Thai food that brought back the memories of my most recent trip to Thailand. The Tom Yum Goong soup is a MUST, as is their Pad Thai noodles (picture of plate & recipe submitted). I also enjoy their Pad Prik King (don't laugh, it tastes like chicken, just kidding). Unless you have a leather tongue or are a gluten for pain, stay away from (or go very lightly with) the chili-oil sauce.

They have recently opened another restaurant (Thai Palace) across town, so I'll have to try it soon.

Had lunch here with my husband. We love Thai food and regularly try out Thai restaurants wherever we go. It is a little hidden place that my hubby found looking up reviews online. We were not disappointed. We received a friendly greeting when we walked in the door. A friend of the owner was manning the store while she was on vacation and I must say that the owner chooses her friends wisely. The food here was delicious, with fresh ingredients and spiced as requested. Plus, the prices were extremely reasonable. We came in late in the lunch hour so it wasn't busy, but apparently it can get fairly busy at times and is a local favorite.
