Visited this restaurant a few years back and tried it again whilst on holiday last week. Food just as good as when we last visited. Always busy which is not surprising - although there are plenty of tables both inside and outside I guess it might be advisable to book during the busy months. Will certainly eat there again the...

1st visit last night, with friends who have been many times. And yes it does deserve a review. Had the special set menu for September only 13.95€ per head. All large portions of very tasty food, and enjoyed by all. We did have to book, and it was very busy, but service was good. Another restaurant we will be visiting... More

I live within 20 minutes of the Pappaya Tree and have been eating here for several years. It is always so good, that I have been guilty of not putting a review on as I presume that everyone feels the same as me. Whenever anyone asks me where to go I always recommend the Pappaya Tree and everyone says thank... More

This restaurant offers an excellent varied menu of not only Thai food but also Chinese. Service is good and staff very friendly and helpful, I was advised to try the peanut curry which wasn't on the menu, it was Devine and highly recommended. This restaurant is always very busy and I can understand why, such good food, which is reasonably... More
