I've been to Papaya many times and I always get either the Green Papaya salad or pho. A while back, I discovered they have a "Low carb" version of the pho dishes where they replace the noodles with zoodles (Zucchini noodles). I don't necessarily avoid carbs but decided to try it out of curiosity. Now this is the only way... More

Phonics great, lots of fresh veggies. They even have a delight option for those cutting carbs, and uses shredded zuchinni instead! Genius. Fresh rolls are great, and they have unique options, outside of the norm like apple and chicken. Fresh noodle salads are good, as is the pineapple fried rice. Great place for fresh, friendly and quick phone fixes.

Was one of my favorite places at the Landing, since I was in Renton for several days. I thought I'd try something different beyond my usual vermicelli bowl and opted for the Vietnamese crepe. Totally different than what I expected - I had to call the waitress over for instructions on assembly. Delicious. I was there mid-week for dinner, busy... More

Actually, I don't know where to start... I've tried their Pho, delicious; their spring rolls, wonderful; and today, their Iron pot (coconut chicken), outta sight; their wonton shrimp egg noodle soup (including fried shrimp) and Crepes.... YUMMY! In addition to their cuisine, their reasonable prices, their portions and their service, they are very attentive and professional. At Papaya, I've certainly... More

Been there a couple of times and love the food. I'm a big noodle lover and they fill my need. Great place for a nice lunch with one exception, Friday lunch the place fills up quickly since it is a favorite with the Boeing crowd. This is one of many good restaurants at the Landing in Renton

I go to this restaurant frequently. Frequently enough that many of the staff know my favorite menu item even before I order. Ordering gluten and dairy free here is no problem. The meals are prepared quickly and the quality has always been good. Papaya continues to be one of my favorite restaurants when I want something quick, healthy, affordable, and... More

Seems that in a sea of local "regular" Pho places, Papaya is quite refreshing. But Pho is not all that is enjoyable about this restaurant. The sandwiches are a tasty big lunch, with quite good yam fries! My favorite is the Honey Sesame Chicken baguette, but really all are very good. There are only two reasons why this place is... More

This restaurant is usually busy but the service and food prep seems to go very fast. The waitress was knowledgeable enough to make recommendations to avoid my food allergies. She also told us to split one of the entrees as it would be big enough for two (the big pancake with the two meats--pork and shrimp) and veggies that you... More

Great location. Clean and well lit. Safe, busy neighborhood with a lot of choices. The food choices were "the usual" Nice combos offered, but overall, have had much better elsewhere.

Myself and two business partners went to dinner on a Wednesday evening. Located in The Landing shopping center in Renton (near a Boeing assembly plant) the Papaya Vietnamese area was very busy and and the free parking was tight this night. The restaurant was about 1/2 full when we arrived around 5:30pm. We were promptly greeted. We asked to be... More
