We like to visit Papaya Bay about once a week. The seating in the booths is odd and awkward for anyone over 5' 10", but their prices are fairly good and they provide large portions, like most places we visit regularly (I am a fanatic for certain leftovers, and this of course adds to the savings). The staff are always... More

I've always loved this location, previously it was Mikan and Wild Rocket. Booths are comfy and decor is nice. Lunch menu is expansive and portions are filling. Curry had good flavor and just enough spice. Pad see ew is terrific and soup and egg roll were yummy. Service is quick and attentive and lunch price is affordable.

This restaurant is no longer at 623 Orange Street in Redlands. They have moved to 345 Pearl Avenue on the corner of Eureka Street (a block from the movie theater). When Papaya Bay used to be across the street from Trader Joe's we ate there a lot and got take-out as well. Today, the potato in the yellow curry was... More

Decor is satisfactory. Clean. Food is satisfactory, but not too authentic in my opinion. Kind of bland/Americanized.

On May 21st they were the only restaurant in town that could accommodate a family wedding party of 30. Other restaurants although open did not do larger catering on Mondays. We went in 3 times to verify the seating, napkin colors, a table for the cake and pre-ordered the appetizers. When we all arrived 15 minutes early at 3:45pm they... More

It takes them forever to get the orders. Food is good but poor service really puts u off. The ambience is nice and it's close to Krikorian Theater. The prices are alright. Nice place to be with friends and family.

Went to dinner with 3 other couples. We had a reservation. We were seated pretty fast and that was the only good thing. We had a long wait for someone to take our drink order. Drink delivery was slow. We then had a long wait for our dinner order. I don't blames the servers, for the amount of people in... More
