Food highlight of the island

When travelling and staying several days at the same place you always find that hidden food place which you keep going back to. For me in phi phi it was definitely the papaya restaurant. Great food, quick and smily service and very affordable.

The food had to much oil and did not taste that good. The owner was a bit rude. Though the service was quite fast

We were told by local scuba instructors it's one of the best places to eat in Phi Phi and they were right! I ordered Massaman Curry and it was so delicious that i ate the left overs for breakfast ! One of the best Massaman's I've had. Atmosphere is good, there is writing all over the walls of customers who... More

If you go to this restaurant, be very careful how you order. Our group of five ordered spring rolls, and the waiter asked how many. We said five, one for each. He proceeded to bring us out five full orders of spring rolls. This could easily have been written off as a lost in translation moment, but the waiter was... More

The food was really nice, quite inexpensive. Traditional Thai food as well as some European dishes. The waiters were nice, there is free WiFi and the cat in the fridges adds some fun to the restaurant.

Are here on the last day of our weeks long stay. The men at the door slightly pressure you saying "best food in Thailand" but it is definitely one of the best meals we had on our trip. Spring rolls, Panang curry & cashew chicken are hit recommend!

Best food on koh phi phi. We kissed a few frogs before we found this prince. Excellent food, good prices and massive portions which they are more than happy to pack up for you to take away. No alcohol but really, if you've been on phi phi for a week do you need any more booze? Highly recommended! Sadly the... More

Papaya restaurant is the best food in Koh Phi Phi! Chriss is the best host on the island and he makes you feel right at home. The food is sooo delicious and satisfying, you cannot lose! After you've eaten here a few times, you don't even need the menu. Just walk in and tell Chriss how you're feeling and he... More

We came down to eat after recommendation, and went for a prawn pad Thai. The vegetable one was 70, and it went all the way up to 150 for prawn! You only get 3 prawns, crazy price difference. It was lovely food, but nothing out of the ordinary. Home style cooking, and the cats are so cool, especially the one... More
