Best food in Thailand

The food at Papaya is amazing! We went everyday we were on Phi Phi, sometimes twice a day! The panang curry and papaya salad were my personal favourites. The owner is a sound guy who is genuinely happy for you custom and goes out of his way to make your meal how you want it. People write reviews... read more

A very nice cat loving restaurant. Its hidden in the back streets, but totally worth to look for it. Coconut soup is a must ... very delicious. The soup portions are XXL, be careful its not a starter :) Service was really good and friendly. Reasonable prices.

Amazing food in this out of the way restaurant, recommend the Green curry, Tom yum Thai, Masamun. Doesn't look anything special but you won't be disappointed!

Ate at this establishment 3 times during our stay at Koh Phi Phi Don and it's easily the best restaurant we tried. Recommend the curry's here and if you like it frisky then ask for it spicy. Peace! The Sandking The Great White Massive Crab Ketpy

When asked where we could find some quality Thai food on the island, Papaya was the clear favourite. If you're looking for a picturesque location for lunch, with ocean views and maybe even with a sea breeze, I'd say you're at the wrong place. We, however, really enjoy it. It's at the end of a little alley way in the... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident walking down an ally one night and we were not disappointed! I had the Penang curry on the owners recommendation and I chose spicy! It was amazing! my Bf had Phad Thai and it was very good. They have a huge collection of cats here and very friendly service :)

If you are looking for big plates and bad quality this is the restorant!! We just came here for the comments in tripadvisor... But was totally disapointed. Actually a little bit dirty.
