They offer a number of vegetarian options that are quite good. Pretty authentic Thai fare but it could use a little less oil. The ambiance is very good and this is a good place for lunch and dinner

We ordered the Gyoza, Satay and Spring Roll as an appetizer. All were very good and the Chicken Ka Pow was excellent. The order was delivered quickly and the delivery person was very pleasant.

Located in a small strip of stores with gated parking (which the restaurant will validate), Paragon Thai puts out solid Thai food. I've ordered delivery and dined her numerous times for lunch and dinner and have tried a variety of dishes. The pad thai, a favorite of my kids, is always very good. Noodles slightly firm, the balance of fish... More

Your standard Thai offerings in a non-descript strip-mall setting. Had the lunch special, which included a veggie spring roll (not good, as in tasteless), which comes with 2, but left the second one. Had my favorite Pad See Ew with chicken...noodles were pretty much stuck together, chicken was scraps of who knows what chicken parts...quick, efficient lunch service, but nothing... More

We frequent this spot because it's in the neighborhood. Sometimes their take out has been inconsistent yet we continue to go back and think it's better than the Siam House across the street. We notice the food is better when we dine in. Good and fast service too!

I have not been here in a few years and had stopped going because I hadn't been happy with the food. We stopped in last night and had a pleasant meal. Nothing exciting, but nicely done. I had Tom Kha Gai soup which was filled with mushrooms and chicken. Nicely flavored. I had a very bright orange Panang Chicken Curry... More

Without having read any reviews, my wife, daughter and I stopped in here because it's literally right outside the Cleveland Park Metro station. The food was great, my wife and I both had Pad Thai. The peanut was pretty heavy and the noodles were thinner than usual pad Thai, but both of those things suit my taste. I do have... More

This place doesn't stand out and I can't recommend me to anyone. Amazing Staff, Quick Service, Hot Food but the taste and quality is lacking. I had Papaya Salad and my wife and I were not interested in finishing it. The Soup had an unusual distinctive flavor that was not appeasing. Also note, Happy Hour is only Monday - Thursday.... More

I met up with my friend for lunch and she took me here. I had Pad Thai and it was mushy and too sweet. The restaurant is dated. Service was okay. I don't recommend it.

I have loved thai food since college, but it's been very hard to find good thai food since moving to the Baltimore area. We took a trip to the zoo and took a chance on this place. Small, unassuming but tasty! They were very accommodating to our 3 year old, and the food spot on. My husband ordered a pineapple... More
