Definitely one of the best places to eat out. Local nod western food is very good. Try any of the dishes on offer you won't be disappointed They also have the biggest cats on the island.

We went to the Papaya restaurant because of the good ranking and it was worth it! It was one of the best meals we enjoyed in Thailand. The massaman curry was so delicious, that we decided to go there a second time. It's also a good place to eat super spicy. A friend of mine ate a soup which was... More

Papaya is amazing... Food, staff, service! Was on Phi Phi for 4 days and went to papaya 3 times! Staff knew our order by the 3rd visit! Make sure to get there at least 2 times before you leave the island!!

Best curry is the Masaman. Drinks are pretty good too. The portions are big so think about sharing. The spring rolls are probably the best on the island.

All I can really say is that this is probably the best Thai food I had in my whole 2 week stay in Thailand. So delicious and it kept me satisfied for many hours! A man selling scuba tours suggested it to us and I've never been so grateful for the words of a salesman on the street! ;) If... More
