I have rated this restaurant before and always gave it "excellent". This recent visit was no different. We had friends in from Bethania, NC and asked if they liked Thai. They said yes so off we went to Papaya's. As always it was fantastic and my friends said it was the best Thai food they've ever had. Thanks again guys... More

Quality of food has shown variation over my visits, but generally at least good and sometimes better than that. Service has been consistently very good. Atmosphere is usually good and can have a quiet conversation. Kid friendly as well as for couples.

Lovely restaurant with very good service. Imaginative menu. Love the fact of linen cloths on tables.

I had the fried flounder for lunch one day, which was good. What made me come back to Papaya a second time, however, was the snapper and avocado roll. The second time I returned, it was close to 3 p.m.; Papaya closes at 3 and re-opens at 5 p.m. The staff kindly accomodated my request for a takeaway order of... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was very flavorful and fresh. Many of the ingredients are organic and locally-sourced, which is important to us. The whole family loved it, and we would definitely return. We had the Pho which was excellent and flavorful (and huge!), and the salads were delicious with great ginger dressing. Yum!

The food was really good, tried the yellow curry and loved it. The atmosphere here is very relaxed and quiet which was so nice after a long week of work. We were not rushed and given the time not only to enjoy the food, but a nice evening out. I would definately recommend this place to friend, and already have!

My wife and I stopped in and were impressed. Nice decor, clean, great service, and the food was excellent. One of the better restaurants we've visited in Beaufort.

On our first trip to Beaufort, we felt like having some sushi. After receiving some advice about where to dine we decide on Papaya. We were not disappointed. We were promptly seated and tended to. I rarely eat sushi but after this experience I will more often. Amazing is the best way to describe this restaurant.

We visited here for our monthly "Girls Night". First off, I was disappointed that we were one of only three tables the entire night...being the only table by 8:30! Therefore, the atmosphere was truly lacking. I got the Tom Yum soup with shrimp. I was graced with only two small shrimp and honestly, the soup tasted like a barn (if... More

After two attempts of eating here we were disappointed by both. The food is more Chinese themed than Thai. The sauces taste like they are out of a bottle as versus fresh and the food feels the same, heat and serve, nothing seemed fresh. Dan
