Good Thai food in a unique setting. Liked the pickled something-or-other in the pad thai. I thought the carrot salad was just okay but my companion liked it quite a lot. Absolutely worth going just for the experience, and the food makes it better yet.

Been there several times. Good food, great atmosphere and cool decoration (walls are covered with old posters, etc.) Small area with couches to relax, warm welcoming staff and large portions. I recommend it.

Small hole in the wall atmosphere was nice, but even expecting Americanized Thai food, this was too much; the predominant taste of my dish was oregano and the meat was ground beef.

Expertly prepared Thai cuisine. Some selections may be a bit spicy for sme people. Best Mai Tai to be had!

I have followed this Thai restaurant to various locations in Meridian for years. I have introduced several friends to FP and they love it. One of my favorites, Islander Paradise is one of many dishes Tim prepares which have you returning for more. The egg rolls are a must...nothing you will ever taste in a Chinese restaurant. Tim has her own twist on Thai food. The portions are large and super tasty. Most are spicy, but she can tone it down for you. The atmosphere is cozy and quaint. A great place for a date if you want a different feel. Other Thai restaurants don't come close to FP as it is an experience within itself. Crying Tiger, Laab Na, Curry Chicken, Teriyaki Chicken, and Pad Thai are just a few offered on the menu. Tim also has a vegetarian selection which I've heard is also great. One try and you will be hooked! Every visit to Meridian keeps bringing me back to FP.
