“Really good food and great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is top notch. It is an escape from the traditional Greek cuisine and tavern type restaurant. We had Chow Mein and Satay duck among a few other starters and we were well impressed. The system is great also, you order and pay first and the food is brought out without delay. Its a no fuss system and really nice for an informal quick bite. Would return again.

“Awesome food and loved Mitchy!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

This is the only Asian fusion restaurant that I saw in santorini. It is amazing - hot and nice quality food, large portions, friendly service, nice chill music and ambiance!! Quick and easy so you don't feel like you're wasting time in paradise waiting on a slow server to give you a menu, take your order, bring your check... Very convenient for take away, too. Highly recommended!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

My wife and I found Paradox on Trip Advisor and saw the good reviews and thought we would give it a shot. It did not disappoint. The restaurant is self-serve and you are served on paper plates and with plasticware but it fits well with the laid-back atmosphere.

Most importantly the food is fantastic! The subpar Asian food that seems to be mass produced is something my wife and I try to avoid, but Paradox serves dishes that are diverse in taste and texture. There are a few places on Santorini we would go again out of convenience but Paradox is the only place we have been so far that we will make a point to return to!

“Tasty Thai, affordable in the most unexpected place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

Just prefacing this by saying I'm Asian and we have had our fair share of Thai so we do know what good Thai tastes like! We ate here just last night because we wanted an alternative to all the gyros we have been eating. Also, the prices in Oia has been so high for just decent food that we wanted a change in scenery. Prices here are affordable! In looking at the reviews, we were excited to get some Asian food fix. Gotta admit that we were skeptical of Thai food in Greece but we still wanted to try it out. I'm glad we did!

I read the negative reviews and thought those were so ridiculous. You are writing negative reviews because they serve plastic cutlery instead of metal? Really? So sorry that you couldn't get off that high horse of yours!

So anyways, we ordered the spring rolls, pad Thai, duck w pancake type wraps, and tom yum soup. All were so delicious! The Tom yum soup was different than what we were used to but still delicious. It was more tomato based but with hints of coconut/curry. I loved it. The spring rolls were thicker than the skinnier Thai versions I have eaten but the inside cabbage stuffing had hints of curry flavor that made it so tasty! The duck was slices and includes crispy skin and wraps to place your duck, spring onions, think sliced carrots/cucumbers as well as hoisin sauce dip. Reminds me of eating Peking duck chinese style. This was also top notch in taste! The pad Thai also was perfect and we couldn't be more satisfied with our meal. All this for just 34 euro for the two of us! Try to find that in one of those restaurants with the view! Sacrifice the view and you can get some tasty, affordable food here!

Just know that you gotta go to the counter to order your food and they will deliver it to your table. Don't listen to those stupid negative reviews because it has nothing to do with how great the food is. People who work there are extremely nice too!
