We were recommended this restaurant by the receptionist at our hotel. It's in a really good location and she said it's one of here favourites so we thought we would give it a go. There are two Papaya's - one with air con and one that is mostly outdoors. We went to the one outdoors, and absolutely LOVED it! On... More

Great place to eat. I'm currently living on the island diving and regularly go here to eat. The food is reasonably priced and tastes great. The staff remember me when I go and always greet me with a smile. Nice chilled atmosphere. Recommend the mussaman curry. Luke

We went to Papaya after reading all of the great reviews. The prices are fair and the menu is really in depth. A great place to try local thai food! Unfortunately, our meals were incredibly spicy even after asking for little spice. Both of us can handle a lot of spice, but unfortunately both of our meals were almost too... More

I had read about Papaya in "Lonely Planet" and I must say I really enjoyed the curry and the noodle soup I had!

I've eaten here one night with my gf, and don't get me wrong; the food is ok. However, it's not that special for the price you pay (600 baht for two panang curries, a fried rice vegetables and two soft drinks). We came here with high expectations, but realised that it was nothing special if you are used to eating... More
