I enjoy the quiet atmosphere and the food is good. Service is friendly. It's not my favorite Thai but I do enjoy it.

We tried the Sushi and the house special appetizer. The Sushi was fair it did not taste fresh and the appetizer was below average. The appetizer had calamari that was chewy. Service was slow.

I had the duck as well as the coconut soup. Both were fantastic, and huge portions. I actually got about 3 meals out of the duck. If you're looking for a good Thai and sushi place, this is the place to go to. Our server was attentive without being overbearing.

What a nice little lunch spot in Beaufort! The food and service were great! Wasn't expecting shrimp dumplings or pad Thai. Adding Papaya to Wren for good meeting spots and dining!

Mind you my husband and I are Thai food fanatics. I can't count how many Thai restaurants we've been to. When we moved to the Low Country, one of the first things we sought out was a good Thai restaurant. Papaya Thai far surpasses any other in the area (and we have tried them). I have even heard that people... More

This was the best Sushi we have ever eaten! The Summer rolls were good as well, if your in this area you must try this place.

I had never eaten at Papaya until Taste of Beaufort last weekend. They were serving coconut shrimp that were incredibly good! With a mild sweet and sour sauce to top them off....YUMMY!

Mediocre sushi, but not bad. It didn't have a huge selection and a lot of the rolls have cream cheese, which I hate. Service was quick and waiter was pleasant. Calamari was really good, as well as the blood orange and acai pomegranate martinis!

Thank you for your review. I just wanted to inform you that our rolls are made fresh with each order so you can omit the cream cheese or even work with your server to create your own roll. The only time ingredients can not be substituted is during Thursday's Half Priced Sushi Night. We look forward to your next visit! More

I usually just go to Papaya when I need a sushi fix... But they do have an awesome sushi selection, plus other entree options like duck with rice and veggies, and classic Thai dishes as well. Recently tried the jumbo coconut shrimp and was not disappointed...Good tom kah!! The Papaya crispy roll appetizer is amazing as well. Friendly staff, and... More

Please take into mind the rest of my review first before judging. I was with a group of 7 and they seemed to think it was too large of a group and out is in the bar area. It seemed as if they wanted us to make our own table and took over five minutes to get us water. I... More

We welcome your review. We do remember your party. As I recall, every table was taken in the dining room during the rush of our weekly Half-price Sushi Night so instead of putting you on a waiting list we tried to accommodate you by creating an adequate space in the bar area. A petite employee was moving tables when a... More
