No complaints at all. Great food and friendly service. Not sure why everyone else left at 9pm on a Friday night though!

Very good tasty meal, friendly service, meals came quickly (it was a mid week night and only a couple other tables in when we went). Had the beef cheeks and the fish curry (shared both), both delicious. Also the squid to start, also delicious. 😊

The food has always been great whenever we have visited Spice Paragon. Can highly recommend the beef cheek, wok fried chicken and red curry tofu. Service can be a bit up and down but was good tonight. Will definitely be back = )

This is the best Thai I've had for ages. I had pork balls, sliders that had a nice wee kick and for mains we shared beef checks and shank. Definitely go back. Staff where very friendly and we didn't wait long for our food.
