Green Papaya was our last meal "on the road," and it didn't disappoint. After reading online that they had a few vegan-friendly items on their menu, we got off of the highway and headed into what looked like a fairly unsavory part of town (right near the defunct and decaying Whirlpool plant). But don't be fooled by appearances. The interior... More

We had vermicelli bowls, rice plates, boba, and ban xeo with shrimp. The were as good as in DFW. It's in an old dairy queen but nicely decorated inside. It had a nice crowd at lunch.

Popular Vietnamese Thai type food. You can tell the quality by the popularity of this restaurant... Locals do enjoy!

Vietnamese food is definitely vegetable-centric. If you're looking for an Asian cuisine buffet where you can put both front feet in the trough, this is not the place for you. But if you want fresh food where the meat is an accent rather than the centerpiece, we highly recommend it. The restaurant does not look like much from the outside... More

We have only been to this place once. This is the newest location on Grand Avenue that we were at. It was fabulous! Really great fresh food!

Fort Smith was an overnight stop for us on a recent tripl. After a little shopping at their mall, it was time for dinner. We arrive about 7:30 at the Green Papaya where we enjoyed some pretty good Vietnamese food. Joan had a couple springs rolls and some fried rice. I had a couple egg rolls and a dish called... More
