This restaurant offers several dishes on its menu of authentic Thai food. I have visited the restaurant a few times. Service is very good. It is a little hard to find--tucked away in a poorly marked shopping area. But once found, it is well worth...More

The service and food was excellent, it may be difficult to find as it is in a strip mall but well worth experiencing

We had a good dinner at Green Papaya. The green curry was very tasty and the service was very good. It is not the best Thai restaurant I have ever been at but the food was good and the prices were reasonable.

Was very skeptical when stepping in, but was surprised with taste and options available in Green Papaya. Have tried quite a few vegetarian dishes here and they are authentic thai taste. Drinks are decently priced and nice ambience too. Good enough parking space aswell..

We ordered spring rolls, steamed dumplings and pad Thai for takeout. We were satisfied with our meals and the service. We will return.

Good place to eat. Quiet inside, take out was quick. Vegetables tasted fresh and rice was not overcooked.

I believe they do and I am a wine drinker, although recently I've been ordering a specialty they make beautifully: Thai iced tea. Thai tea is reddish (not brownish) and so this iced tea, to which they add milk or cream and... More
