AH-mazing Masaman Curry

Papaya is known for their amazing masaman curry, and it is truly amazing. M-m! I had some other dishes there as well, on both of their locations, and they are superb!

First of all, there's a bar right beside this restaurant that has AWESOME MUSIC! So that a was a big plus to start with. Their staff is really kind and love to give you good service. Their food tastes delicious. Only downside: this place is pricy! Compared to most other thai foods we've overed, this one is certainly not the... More

My friend ordered one of the spicy curries and she said it was delicious. We shared a papaya salad and do not regret it at all. I also ordered a banana lassi and Pad Thai;everything came quickly and the service was fantastic

Everyone must go to the original Papaya restaurant while on Phi Phi. Some of the best Thai food I've had! So fresh, so quick and the staff are friendly and very happy to help with dish recommendations. There may even be a trademark friendly cat cooling itself down in the nearby fridge (no food in this fridge), seriously there's a... More

Wonderful little restaurant was recommended to us by our scuba instructor. You can't go wrong with anything you order here. It is all so delicious along with friendly service with a smile. Get the mango lassi or banana milkshake.

We enjoyed the food here, very tasty and big portions. The staff were lovely and very informative of the dishes they served. It was slightly more expensive than others we tried but not significantly. We would definitely return here if we come back to phi phi

I'll start with the only bad news about this place. Doesn't have alchoolic drinks, but the owner allows you to get it from the bar next door... There are two Papaya Restaurant in the Phi Phi Don. Go for the one that has a big fat cat on the wall and inside!!! He is probably under the AC inside on... More

First the place is run my Indians and not Thai. Should of been the first bad sign. Second if a place had such a great following, they should not have to hand out flyers to get people there. I know they are ranked #1 on here but there must be paying for their likes and reviews. The food wasn't bad... More

We had a great lunch here. I think I saw more than 1 of these restaurants in Phi-Phi, so not sure at which one we had lunch. It was in one of the side-streets. I love Thai food. My mom is not a big fan of thai food, but I made her eat one. She had the cashew nut chicken... More
