Nicely executed Viet fare, emphasis on the Pho and other soup dishes. Fair prices, pleasant service and ambiance. It would be five stars if they had banh mi sandwiches!

We recently went to the this restaurant in Exton because of its convenient location to all the shopping. However we noticed that their service was very poor. We had to wait a long time to be seated and for someone to come and take our order. There was only one guy there running around to do everything. When the food... More

We have eaten here several times, and have always been happy with the food. Menu is very diverse with lots of choices. Prices are very reasonable. Two of us had an entree and appetizers for under $40. Would highly recommend this restaurant for vietnamese food.

If you want a decent different meal, try Vietnamese. Green Papaya is a nice surprise in the sea of normal chain restaurants in the Exton, PA area. Service is a little slow, but for us, not too bad. The meal was pretty good and reasonable. I would recommend it.

Have shared a few meals with friends here. Extensive menu offers diverse options, including vegetarian and vegan fare. Staff are very gracious and service is good. Upon request, Chef changed a few ingredients to make a dish to perfectly suit our tastes. Just ask! Settting is very Pennsylvania - old house that has been converted, retaining its historical feel.

We are usually in this area around Saturday lunchtime, and while the other restaurants in the vicinity are fairly busy, Green Papaya tends to be nearly deserted. I have no idea why, because Green Papaya's food is much better than anything I've tried nearby. In fact, it's Some of the best Vietnamese food I've had. Some quibbles -- the food... More

We used to like this place but it was a very disappointing experience today. Today was the first time we walked out of a restaurant. First we had to wait a really long time for someone to come and take our order. After a while the guy (manager) who came out appeared completely pissed when we were asking him about... More

The green papaya has very delicious food. I love their lemongrass chicken! Their veggies are also delicious and are served with a light sauce that is amazingly flavored. I love their historic setting in the Jacob Zook house, circa 1810. This is one of my favorite Exton eats.

This is one of the better places in Exton, if you're not too snobby for BYOB - the food is excellent, and we travel all over the US for food! The simple char broiled chicken with vermicelli rice noodles is my favorite. Also have the spring rolls - these are light and delish! My husband had a beef dish this... More
