“Really Good First Experience Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I had supper here with my sister and mother recently, and we really enjoyed the experience. We all got three different dishes, and enjoyed sharing. Our waiter, who was friendly and helpful, said they're known for their Pad Thai, and it WAS really good!

It's in a strip mall, so the outside is unassuming, but parking is plentiful.

“Now one of our favorite places to eat!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Actually we went here with friends from out of town who love 'real' thai food. It was our first time to eat here. We (all 4) loved the food !!, our friends were very impressed with the flavor and authenticity of the dishes, it was well prepared and very delicious !!! The atmosphere is nice and calm, the sercive (Friday evening) was excellent, very friendly, attentive and fast. We barely finished our appetizers when the main dishes were already brought to our table. The good reviews are accurate, and we will be back and have been telling others about this great place to enjoy well prepared and flavorful food. :(( it is closed on Sundays and after 8:30 pm during the week.

“Good food in an unexpected place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised to find the Green Papaya offering such very good dinners. It is located in a shopping plaza, out of the mainstream, but the food was well prepared, served promptly and delicious. The staff was very hospitable and more than met our needs. The atmosphere was functional.

“Serious Lao/Thai food in an unlikely spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This was the best takeout our group of East Coast food snobs managed to find over the course of a month in Montgomery. Generous portions, fresh flavors, spice levels adjustable from mild to seriously hot, numerous vegetarian options. My favorite dish was the pad kee maow (drunken noodles). The eat-in experience was also very nice, including attentive service and several inexpensive beer options, but I would give it four stars because of not really caring for loud college football or MLB with my Thai food.

“Tucked out of the way Thai restaurant has great food and prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is my favorite Thai restaurant. REALLY good food - no heavy sauces so you can taste the veggies and peanut sauce. If you really like THAI food - not Americanized too much - this is the place.
Friendly service in a small dining area, but the decor lets you know the culture! (Altho it is not overwhelming!)
Portions are good and so are the prices.
When I am in Montgomery and have a choice - this is my favorite dinner choice.
