On a hot summer's day the beautiful shaded patio of Green Papaya is a excellent spot for lunch. The patio is very large, the entire patio is covered which is a wonderful escape from the intense sun and we were the only ones out on the patio so it was an added treat as all other diners were seeking the...

While driving through Little Italy in an attempt to find a nice restaurant, my partner and I spotted Green Papaya and decided to try it. We definitely were not disappointed. First, the waitresses were very kind and attentive, even making small talk with us during the meal. I would say it is one of the better experiences I've had with... More

We have visited this place a few times over the last year and a bit and the food has been consistently good but the service is variable.

Our waitress was very attentive and both my friends and I enjoyed our dishes. I went back again recently to order take-out and experienced timely service. I was getting take-out for a family member who is a big fan of Thai food and he had only good things to say about the food! I will definitely be back. The atmosphere... More

Complete disregard for people's safety. I asked my waitress multiple times if the dish I was about to order had mushrooms in it. I explained that I'm allergic to mushrooms. She confirmed over and over that there are not mushrooms in the dish. I received the dish and found a mushroom in it. Her response was would you like us... More

The restaurant has two separate dining areas and since it was early evening on a Wednesday and we were a group of 12 ladies we were able to have one side of the... More

This is not a fancy restaurant but the service was really good. Servers were attentive, drinks and food came fast. Prices are not high. My rice and beef was very good and hot and I loved it. I noticed that those who ordered rice dishes ate them all and most of those who ordered noodle dishes left the noodles uneaten.... More
