One of few places on Koh PhiPhi that makes papaya salad, it's delish! Good prices too. Went for green curry and chili rice with cashew nuts and chicken. Will come again and try infamous Massaman curry.

We thought the food was pretty good but not the best we have had. The restaurant was pretty much emtpy and our meals took nearly 30 minutes to arrive. Perhaps after reading all the amazing reviews we had really high expectations. The massaman was very nice but not mindblowing. Service was lacking with the staff looking very bored and disinterested.... More

The service was really good and both massaman and panang curry there were of a really high standard while prices were reasonable. Recommended.

Loved the food at Papaya, ate here a number of times during my stay at Kho Phi Phi ana found myself coming back again and again, the service was excellent, specifically the service was attentive, friendly and personalised. My favourites were the Chilli, Basil Chicken and the Massaman curry - the food can take time to come out depending on... More

service is very friendly, but maybe a little slow, this is phi phi though so you just sit back and enjoy! The food tastes amazing, I recommend spring rolls or the mossamun curry.

Nice little hole in the wall spot. There are 2 papaya restaurants on the island. There about 5 minutes from each other. These portions were pretty big considering everything else we had. They ask if you want the food spicey, little spicy or not spicey which is pretty clutch since I'm not a huge fan of spiciness. All in all,... More

I normally write my reviews within 24h of having tried a restaurant or hotel. I like to give a detailed but also "freshly passionate" view of what happened, recalling not only my thoughts but also my feelings. In the case of Papaya, I waited almost a week. Papaya was recommended to me by a number of people I met on... More
