We were five families on a 10 day whirlwind tour of Europe and were in Santorini on our last leg and looking for a change in cuisine. Paradox Thai food and bar surprised us with the freshness of the green curry, chicken noodles and other dishes that we ordered... The user of natural ingredients (E.g. Kafir leaves) made the taste that much more special and fresh. The staff was very attentive and helpful throughout the dining experience and everyone especially our young kids thoroughly enjoyed their dinner...

. The manager even went above and beyond in his hospitality helping me even print out our boarding passes for the budget airline we were traveling on..

. Truly a wonderful experience... That we won't forget...

This place is a refreshing change after five days of Local food. The pad Thai and pad see ew were delicious, and they served us complimentary fried banana for dessert which was also yummy.

After a mere 2 and a half days in Santorini, we were looking for something different cusine wise. We literally googled Asian food Santorini and this little spot popped up. Its not necessarily a restaurant since it's self service for both food and drinks. You have to order the food at the bar and then wait for your order number. We had the pad thai, spring rolls, and green curry. The pad thai and curry felt very familiar--just plain good ole thai food. The cocktails are great as well (world cup season so we got the Tom Collins, old fashioned, caprinoha, mythos beer, gin and tonic...don't judge). The environment is what's the best part. Good music, comfy couches outside, big screen tv to watch the game..just an overall awesome chill ambiance. Recommend to people looking for something different in oia.

After spending weeks in Greece and enjoying all the yummy food Greece has to offer, Paradox was was the perfect way to spice up our night. It was so wonderful having something different on our trip and at the same time still feeling like you are on vacation.

More casual than I thought, it was a perfect place to spend a few hours chatting with locals and eating delicious Thai food after a long day of sightseeing.

It's absolutely perfect if you need something different. The food is great, there was a mellow DJ with a bar like atmosphere on the inside. They also had a tv playing the big games from all over the world. (We were visiting during NBA playoffs and got to catch up a little on the latest and although I don't care too much about those things, it did make me feel like I was a little closer to home.) The outside patio is a perfect size, pretty big in fact and if the weather was nicer we would have surely enjoyed that as well for a post dinner cocktail.

The owner Aris, is so sweet and made sure everything was just right.

If you are craving a little home away from home with the spices that not all of Greece can provide you, I highly recommend going to Paradox!

Great food, great staff, great location!

Thanks Paradox! We will be back!
