Small restaurant, very big taste

This small restaurant in a very humble building serves some of the best Asian food. The qualifying difference from other Asian food in this are is the freshness of the ingredients. The vegetables are fresh and there is none of the heavy sauce taste I often find. It is a very busy place and the... read more

I am not a big fan of Asian food and in Fort Smith it is hard to pitch a rock and not hit an Asian restaurant. Green Papaya is amazing! Get the 31A! Tender beef chunks in a delicious sauce and ask for the fried rice! Your tongue will slap your forehead!

I had never eaten Vietnamese food before for two reasons. My veteran husband had to eat mostly rice, fish pieces with fish sauce, and bananas when he was stationed there. Second, there are not many Vietnamese restaurants in N. MS. I am now sure this restaurant has spoiled me to any other one I will ever enter. The food was... More

I made my first visit to Green Papaya a couple of weeks ago. It was chilly inside the restaurant, but the food was warm and delicious. The sweet lady that waited on us was very attentive and helpful. I had no idea what to order, but told her that I typically liked sweet, sour, and peppery things. She suggested I... More

Green Papaya is Vietnamese food. It is quite different than the usual Asian food. I like it better actually. The menu items are not the regulars fare.

As contradictory as the concept of vegan cuisine in Fort Smith might seem to the uninitiated, there is a restaurant that satisfies even the most fastidious vegan. This restaurant, my friends, is Green Papaya. The vegetarian (in actuality, vegan) offerings of this restaurant are world-class, in my opinion, and hold their own against the offerings of any large coastal city.... More

My wife and I love this place. Great soups and every item I've tried has been awesome! The crab rangoon is terrific as are the eggrolls. I've eaten several of the combos with noodles and rice ...very yummy. The atmosphere in the new location is nice and the service is always friendly and prompt. You can't go wrong at this... More
