Every single time I visit my sister in Fort Smith we HAVE to go to Green Papaya. It is by far the best food in town. The spring rolls are amazing, the bowls all delicious. I make it a point to try something different every time and have yet to be disappointed. Prices are very fair.

Our visit was the 1st time my husband had eaten Vietnamese food. He really liked it, especially the spring rolls. (We took the waitress's suggestion & ordered the chicken spring rolls.) We also enjoyed the house special fried rice & the Pho (brisket & meat ball variety). My only complaint was the large portion you are served when ordering Pho;... More

I love Vietnamese food and there is a Vietnamese restaurant on every corner in Fort Smith. The Green Papaya has some excellent food. I always say I'll try something else, but I always end up with spring rolls and pho. The spring rolls were large, very fresh and filled with veggies; the peanut dipping sauce was great. The broth for... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Green Papaya while in Fort Smith. This was our first time trying Vietnamese food. The food was excellent and the portions were huge. I had the Pho and my wife had the chicken fried rice, we also shared an order of spring roll and egg rolls. We had plenty to take with... More

Fabulous food. Friendly servers. Large portions. Their special house fried rice is great as well as their combo meat (chicken & shrimp) with noodles.

Have visited this restaurant repeatedly since the last review, and want to report that it is very consistently good, no matter what menu item is ordered. The service is excellent even though there is usually a crowd and few waitresses. It's obvious that the dishes are made to order, and that fresh ingredients are staples here. Amazing that this weird... More

In Van Buren for business and the girlfriend found this place on Trip Advisor. Glad she did and that we drove over to Fort Smith - well worth it. Everything we had was very great and the service was good as well. Very flavorful Pho (girlfriend is very picky about Pho and she really liked this one); loved the tofu... More

Had never had Vietnamese food before, but saw the excellent reviews & as a local, decided to try it. It was excellent. My only criticism is the lack of fountain drinks and free refills.

Tried the Green Papaya from TA reviews. We arrived at 7:30 PM on a Sunday evening after a long day driving from Atlanta. The restaurant was busy and we were seated immediately. The waiter recommended the Spring rolls which were very good and inexpensive. We had a fried rice dish with shrimp, chicken, and pork. Also had a chicken dish... More

We were traveling through on I40 and saw the reviews so we thought we'd stop in. Didn't know it was so far off the highway. It was definitely worth the trip. Their beef Pho is some of the best I've tasted. It was flavorful and had lots of meat, I couldn't eat it all. (That's unusual). This will definitely be... More
