Very Pleasant Surprise

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... read more

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.

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!

I love their Papaya tasting sampler! We usually get their pad thai and thai salmon. It is amazingly yummy and always enough to share and have left overs! Their servers are always so nice!

We just moved to this area and we thought we had experienced great Thai food before but.... this place knocked all the others off our list. It was delicious! We ordered yellow curry and it had a ton of flavor with just the right amount of spice. The pad thai, chicken satay and sushi rolls that we ordered were great... More

I used this restaurant for a business meeting with my wife and a buisness associate. Took a chance since I never ate there before. The experience and food were great. The staff did accommodate us and sat us in a quite area so we could discuss business matters without risk of being overheard. Kota K was our waiter... he was... More

This restaurant is a gem! The food is stellar -- perfectly cooked and delicious, fresh Thai food and sushi! It all tastes like its made right there from scratch. It's a comfy atmosphere, too, which is good because there is no rushing perfection! If you're on a tight schedule you'll have to let your server know because they take their... More

3 of us early dinner last night. 2 Sushi eaters that were happy with their rolls. I had the spicey tuna roll (was on special for Thursday, not reason I ordered it though) that was very flavorful. Husband had tempura shrimp roll & California roll (with crab) that were also good - not the best we've ever had, but good... More
