Good service, great food, very fresh. I have been there many times and will go several more times, the food is delicious! Nice place for a group of people, parking available which is good for a restaurant on Preston!

On a hot summer's day the beautiful shaded patio of Green Papaya is a excellent spot for lunch.

While driving through Little Italy in an attempt to find a nice restaurant, my partner and I spotted Green Papaya and decided to try it. We definitely were not disappointed. First, the waitresses were very kind and attentive, even making small talk with us during the meal. I would say it is one of the better experiences I've had with... More
