This is one of our favorite places to go! Every time we go the food is fresh and made for you - Not ahead of time. The service is above and beyond. Best Thai food around.

The service is very good. Presentation is fantastic. Lots of options for vegetarians. Everything I've had is v. good. The best thing, hands down, is the Orange Chicken.

The food was excellent, reasonable price. The "Box lunch" was great, lacquer box with food displayed in separate compartments. Good choices. Thai tea was also very good. Service attentive. Clean, small restaurant.

So happy I found Thai food in Kent!! The wait staff was very attentive and courteous. I had the green curry, Yum! And my dining partner had the Pad Thai, which was also pretty good. I highly recommend the mango sticky rice for dessert. It took me back to Thailand.

A good Thai restaurant is always a delight. Wild Papaya is a VERY good Thai restaurant. The massaman curry was delicious and just the right level of spice for my taste. The service was prompt and courteous. The only disappointment was discovering that they had neither ginger nor coconut ice cream on hand, though they were listed on the menu.... More

I had dish number 45 Pad Thai . It tasted just like I thought it would. It had chicken and shrimp. Maybe 10 thinly sliced pices of chicken. 2 shrimps. Not a good balance. The dish was on the sweet side as well. But over all good. My partner had extra spicy Larb. He likes heat. He enjoyed it. They... More

Yes! This is a good one. Great service. Great food. I had the basil chicken; altough spicy, wow --- very delicious. Waitress said they could make it mild next time. And they kept refilling our water glasses without asking. They offer the regular white rice and brown also. My dining partner had the pad thai which he enjoyed. Nice atmosphere... More

If you are not familiar with it, Tom Khar Gai is a soup that is made with lemon-infused coconut milk. And boy, is it made well here. I had a bowl of it along with some Siam rolls (think crispy spring rolls) and thought I'd died and gone to heaven. But the true religious experience is the Pad Thai: Wow,... More
