Good food; reasonable price

I come here very often. The food is very good and the prices are also reasonable. My favorite is vegetable pad thai. I recommend this place to everyone.

The flavors here were really lackluster and the portions were too small. We ordered a tofu dish, and the tofu cubes were tiny. There was also a vegetable dish we ordered, where half of the veggies were beansprouts (a filler vegetable...). I feel bad because the service was good, and the waitstaff was really nice. But they were clearly cost-... More

This is the best Thai food restaurant in MA. The food is always so fresh, healthy and fast. The owner and wait staff are the best. If you like Thai food this is the restaurant to come. The wait staff is friendly, the food is cooked fast, the food is always delicious and their prices are very reasonable.

We were staying overnight in Waltham and were looking for restaurants close to our hotel. We found this restaurant and loved it! I had a bowl of their chicken coconut soup and it was piping hot and delicious! This was one of the best soups I've had at an Asian restaurant. My husband ordered a red curry chicken dish and...

We use to go here all the time for lunch then for whatever reason the place has been sliding down hill. :( The portions you get aren't very big either IMHO. Who doesn't like a good value and some left overs the following night or later that evening?! LOL. I asked for something HOT & SPICY and it was LAME... More

Green Papaya is a strip mall find. Delicious Thai food in a pleasant open room with a glass wall on one side looking out on a small grassy area and some trees. This isn't just food that someone cooked with a recipe. They're bringing you a cultural experience through your taste buds and through their friendly and considerate service.

Have been eating at Green Papaya for 14 years now. I've tried a number of dishes but always keep going back to the Oriental Salmon. I always ask for an extra dish of the curry sauce, as I just love it so much. Awesome dinner!

Delicious Thai food, friendly staff and very very reasonable. Been in Waltham almost two weeks and eaten here 3 times after my wife, who isn't usually a fan of Thai food, kept wanting to go back due to the wide variety on the menu. Everything we ordered has been tasty and if we were staying longer we'd be going back... More
