Best Restaurant in Beaufort!

My wife and I always like to try local restaurants when possible and this place is AWESOME! On the way in, I asked an elderly gentleman coming out if the place was good and if he had a recommendation. "Yes" was the adamant answer to both and he recommended the Spring rolls. Well, we had an order... read more

We didn't know what to expect going here... I love Thai food but my parents haven't had the wonderful experiences I have. I'm pleased to announce they will now be regulars. Great service and the food is obviously made to order and comes out HOT! We got several different things to try across the board and it was all amazing.... More

The sweet basil dish with shrimp was totally delicious. Perfectly balanced mild Thai spices and correctly cooked shrimp. We have enjoyed the atmosphere and great service. Our waitress Ann was very helpful in your helping us out with the local Beaufort scene too. Well worth the stop and for curing that need for Thai that you just can't resist

I have reviewed this gem many times and each time I give it a 5 rating. I'm reviewing because we had friends in who live in Indiana and took them here the last night. They are very familiar with Thai food and raved about what they get in Indianapolis. Surprise...they not only raved about Papaya's, they said it was the... More

The food was really good and had a great flavor and taste. I had a chicken basil dish and it was really good. The best part was my waitress was so great. I really felt like I was having dinner with a friend and not alone. That was the best part. Thank you

Pad Thai, stir fry and calamari appetizer were average. Philadelphia rolls were very chewy. The combo roll we would definitely order again. Wait staff was pleasant but not particularly efficient.

We had driven by this restaurant many times and finally read the reviews to see what others had thought of it. That was enough to get us in there but we were more impressed than we could have imagined. We have been to Thailand many times and to Laos as well. Having eaten at many Thai restaurants in the U.S.,... More

This place is everything the reviews say, plus so much more. We (my husband and I) dined in on a Thursday night uwhich happened to be half off sushi night, AND half price martinis. We ordered sushi as an appetizer (crunchy salmon & spicy tuna) which came out promptly. For entrees he had the sizzling duck and I, the peppercorn... More

Papaya has survived in this location for more than three years which must be some sort of record. Previous owners tried out with not very good food. It’s helped that the food has improved over the years. The menu is Thai and Sushi. And it’s pretty extensive, so it helps to go first with someone who can point out the... More

I didn't even like sushi before I came here. They have half price Sushi on Thursdays and I tried the crispy salmon roll. YUM YUM YUM!! Everything I have ever eaten here is absolutely delicious!
