I didn't understand why he gave us a funny look after the two of us ordered 6 things until he came out with enough food for two days. I seriously got two meals out of a $6.50 entree, and it was awesome! Those spring rolls...More

This is a true hidden gem. She makes everything fresh on a 4 top stove. Which in return takes time and creates a delay. If you looking for a fresh thai food, great place!!!!

The Rice Paddy is a local favorite, especially popular with NMU students. I often get the pad Thai, though it is a bit too sweet for my tastes. Have just a few bucks? Get an egg roll (they are huge, and delicious) and a hot...More

If you are looking for good Thai food, this isn't going to be your best bet. The portions are small and cheap and overall, it's just not that good. Keep driving and save your Thai cravings for later.

In the small city of Marquette, options for cuisine are quite limited. There are quite a few restaurants here I will say. However, quality varies tremendously. Whenever a new restaurant plans to be opened, gossip fills the town and people are curious to see what...More

Adam, Please stop by the Rice Paddy for a refund. What you describe is not the type of food I’m famous for that has kept customers coming back for 30 years. There is no false advertising. I pay more to use large, wild caught shrimp....More

The Rice Paddy is an unassuming take out Thai Restaurant on Presque Isle, just down from the university. The place is run by the hardest working woman in Marquette (Aoy) and her still relatively new assistant (Josh AKA little boy). My go to dishes here,...More

There are a few stools inside if you want to eat there, but I wouldn't recommend it since it's so tiny and there will probably be a bunch of other customers standing around you waiting to pick up their food. It's basically... More
