What a great find! Right near the airport hotels and worth the extra two minute drive instead of going to one of the many chain restaurants by the hotels. The food here is outstanding, modern, affordable with generous portions. The Thai Chili Tamarind Seafood is killer. They ask what spice level you want, one (mild) to five (Thai hot). I... More

Thai food is so unique and interesting, and Green Papaya is a great, great restaurant. Oddly set in a huge strip mall, it's easy to miss among shops like Dick's Sporting Goods & Gander Mountain, but it's worth the effort to find it. Three big things to look for in a great restaurant: 1. Great, fresh ingredients. Every sauce, vegetable,... More

We had tom yum soup, the hot pepper with shrimp, and the plantain shrimp. Everything was delicious! The hot pepper even came with some drizzled candy syrup on the side of the plate. It's a great place for spice lovers and they can make the food mild for those who aren't. Highly recommended for Thai food!

The Green Papaya is tucked away on a mall strip, next to a Best Buy. It's a little quirky and plain looking, but do NOT let the outside fool you. It has some really delicious food. It's decor is modern, but clean. Tables and Bench/Tables can support a decent amount of people. It was somewhat early when we arrived, (came... More

We went there per recommendation from tripadvisor. The restaurant is at the end of the shopping center which was a pain to navigate . The food was good. I had way better Thai food up north. The service was good. I guess I am picky with Thai food. Getting out of the mall was a pain trying to navigate the... More

My husband and I shared a late night dinner after a long day of travel. The Green Papaya will be our favorite lunch and dinner spot whenever we are in the area. The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. Veronica provided wonderful friendly service even though it was near closing time. The decor was very pretty and... More

I read the positive reviews and decided to make the 45 minute drive. It was well worth it. The restaurant was clean, the presentation was beautiful, and the food was great. Each course was a great experience and we have been back several times. It's location in the River City Marketplace makes it fun to walk around and shop after... More

This is the second time that we have eaten here and it did not disappoint. I hand the Tom Kha Gai soup and the panang curry and both were great. It is just across the interstate from the Airport and is a great place to eat. There are lots of restaurants in the area but we will definitely eat at... More

The food here was incredible. Best Thai food in all of Jacksonville. Somewhat far from the beaches but definitely worth it.

Stopped in for a late lunch and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and fast. The ambiance and decor were tasteful. The staff was friendly and helpful. Could not have asked for a nicer experience. Highly recommend!
