We go to Papaya Bay regularly and always end by bringing home at least half of what we order. The staff are very kind, the service is excellent, and the food is always good, healthy Thai-style cuisine. I particularly enjoy the Royal Duck Curry, but the Pad Thai, Thai Fried Rice, Beef Salad, and Spring Rolls are also to be recommended. Soups are very tasty, though the meat is often just a little overly "well-done" (that seems to me to be typical of most Thai places, not just this one). The Thai iced teas and coffees are wonderful, they have great beer and cocktails, the serving portions are often HUGE and prices are very low in comparison to other restaurants of the same range (middle, three-star). You more than get what you pay for, and we continue to go there every week, sometimes twice!

The food here was very good. If it says it is spicy it is best to ask how spicy. Some dishes will be very spicy. The night we were there the service at our table was a little odd. There were four of us. One meal was brought out, then several minutes later anouther meal, a little later another and then a few minutes laster, the last meal, Other tables ( who came in later than us) got their meals before us and all at one time. Other than that the meal and evening was fine.

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 polite and genuinely friendly instead of fake or condescending, food comes quickly and hot, and the quality is good to excellent, depending on the dish. I like the curries, especially the "Royal Duck," but it must be said that like most Thai places, the meat is usually overcooked and not terribly flavorful in itself, though the sauces, spices and vegetables are so delicious that this is not a major concern. My wife loves the beef salad, while I am a fan of the aforementioned curries or pad thai with chicken and shrimps. The shrimps are always very tasty,and the spring rolls are served hot with plenty of that great sweet sauce. Their iced thai tea and coffee are both wonderfully rich and sweet, and they have a full bar if one prefers a cocktail, beer, or wine with dinner. I give this place an excellent rating despite the minor flaws because nearly all Asian places overcook the meat, especially birds, but the flavor dispersed into the dish itself more than compensates..

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.
