Papayas has become our family’s favorite place to visit. Great food, great staff, and the best sushi in Beaufort!! We live in Beaufort, and can’t stop ourselves from coming back to Papayas again and again!!

This visit was sushi and Tom Yum soup to go! The Crispy Eel Roll was fantastic as was the Tee’s Tuna! Nicely sized. The Tom Yum soup is one of the best I’ve had. Service, the couple of times I’ve visited, has been great.

When you are in the Low Country and desperate for Thai, Papaya Thai will suffice. Sushi was average, curry was fine and the setting needed a facelift.

First time visit...I met a friend for an early dinner. Nice atmosphere and it wasn’t yet crowded for the evening rush. We split 2 sushi rolls and they were amazing! I had the Thai fried rice with chicken - it was impeccable. I will go...More
