Here on business and and needed a sinus-clearing noodle soup to help me recover from cold/flu symptoms. Green Papaya delivered exactly what I wanted! Felt 100% better after draining a chicken noodle soup and a pot of jasmine tea.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Pho was delicious! The meat was tender and the broth was flavorful! My husband ordered the fried banana dessert and he loved it!

I've been here couple times! The vegetarian noodle soup was just right and light. Not to mention the papaya salad, spicy hot and touch of crushed peanuts bring out the freshness of papaya! Just a shot walk from convention center.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
