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

First - they had no heat when we arrived - and we kept our jackets on. Second, my wife is Thai and taught me when it is food for falangs or for Thais, This food is 100% like Thai Chinese food. Avoid it.

I really loved the duck and fruit preparation. I was here first during an team meeting - had dinner. I liked the food and the milieu so much I visited to have brunch with family. They serve food throughout the day - that's a big plus (meaning no closure between lunch and dinner). The dinner is slightly expensive, but the... More

This is a typical Thai restaurant that serves a decent meal. And that's OK. The prices and ambiance don't send out more of an expectation. When I'm looking for a quick Thai meal, then average is really OK.

I agree with all the positive reviews for Green Papaya. I only come for dinner so can't comment on the lunch experience, and have only had take-out a couple of times (which is good but eating in is best). I have not tried all the dishes on their menu (no beef or pork) but their curries, fish dishes, pad thai,... More

I had the tofu soup which was bland but as soon as I put soy sauce and hot sauce, it tasted much better. I had the tofu Royal for lunch and it was delicious. My only complaint is that the soup was small for $4, where typically lunch at other places would include a soup or spring roll.
