Great food, good service, very hot sake. Went this past weekend with some friends from Asheville. Even they were impressed with the delicious taste of the food. Prices very reasonable. The stuffed mushrooms were large crab meat balls, with a light pastry breading. The soups were so fresh and seasoned wonderfully. I want more now!

We go out to Thai food often in the city where we live. When we visited relatives in Franklin, we wanted to take them for Thai food because they hadn't had it before. We enjoyed our dinner here. The Tom Kha soup was very good. The cashew chicken was yummy. My only suggestion was that the curry was not as... More

The building is very dreary from the outside and we passed it by many times. We finally went on the recommendation of a friend and are glad we did. The atmosphere inside is much nicer and the food was really good. The Won Ton soup was very flavorful with lots of veggies instead of just broth and wontons. My Pad... More

Building looks a little worn from the outside, but the food is great and the interior is very clean. Service is always friendly and helpful and they will prepare dishes however you like. Everything is prepared fresh, so this is not a fast food joint. My wife and I have eaten here several times in the past two months and... More

We recently took our son and several of his friends here for dinner before their Homecoming Dance at school. There were 8 of us so there was a bit of a wait, about 45 minutes for the food to arrive, but they were very courteous about sitting us and getting us drinks, etc while we waited. Prices are very reasonable,... More

We are huge fans of Thai food and have traveled to Thailand. The food here is top rate. Be careful if ordering this "Thai Hot" They are serious. Great service, fresh food, clean dining area

When we discovered Thai Paradise some years ago, we we're thrilled. They serve authentic, beautifully prepared fresh Thai dishes, from old favorites like Pad Thai to unusual dishes like Num Toc and cheese rolls that you probably won't find at similar restaurants, even in big cities. It is a family owned restaurant, and the dedication to quality and good service... More

Our favorite place to eat in Franklin! My husband and I sneak away to Thai Paradise for lunch dates as often as we can and have never had a bad experience. The food is amazing and staff is wonderful. I love their Basil Rolls and Pad Thai.
