During my visit in this island I was recommended to eat here. The Thai green curry was like no other I've ever tasted! 10/10. The owner made my dish to my liking. Also loved the cat keeping cool in the spare fridge. Only in Thailand!

After a heavy night out with some friends, we decided to go kayaking in the early morning. after our kayak expedition, we headed out for brunch at Papaya. Since I didn't have much of an appetite when we got there, I ordered some Papaya salad. It was so good that I decided that I would wait about 20 minutes at... More

This was one of the highlights of our stay in Phi Phi. The food was fantastic and we are so glad we got talking to an American couple on the boat trip to PP Lei. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but venture in and have a meal. Its cheap too and the service is good. Highly recommend!

We ate in papaya nearly every night of our stay in Phi Phi and never regretted it! Portion sizes are on the large size so would reccomend sharing dishes, 3 between 4 is perfect - which is all the better as then you get to taste more dishes! Highly reccomend the massaman or else the chicken and cashew nut!

I ate here after several recommendations (and review reading) but was a bit underwhelmed. Having cooked thai food myself and eating it lots, I expected things a certain way/flavor/spice and it just fell short. It wasn't bad at all, just not the excellent taste I was hoping for. Still a good choice and value.

Yes it may look like a canteen- but look beyond and you'll find that this plain little restaurant focuses more on its food and the customer experience than the paint on the walls.. oh and making sure their cats are kept extra cool from the heat by putting them in the fridge (I'm not a fan of cats and I...

Ordering the massaman curry was the best decision- delicious and full if flavor, with friendly service to boot. Papaya is a must visit while in phi phi.

I was really sceptical about this place... All the reviews suggested it was amazing with very little bad to say about it, I thought it would have a good reputation due to people wanting to put up a poster, have their name on the wall, without writing anything bad. Admittedly it lacks class.. It's more of a diner with posters... More
