A gem in Nkhata bay. Kaya Papaya is the only reason I would come back to Nkhata bay for! Had the Chicken and rice with Peanut sauce. It was delicious, so nice to have some different food while traveling in Malawi and so authentic. I hope to come back again.

We knew coming to Nkhata Bay we had to eat at Kaya Papaya. We ordered the chicken satay and red curry both excellent dishes that had generous helpings. The service was great with friendly waiters. We would definitely stop in Nkhata bay just to eat here again. Such genuine food and to eat Thai food in Malawi was such a treat. Kevin and Georgia.

The food at Kaya Papaya was amazing. They serve a wide range of foods, pizzas, thai dishes and cakes for dessert. My only issue is that it takes a long time for the food to come, though that was not an issue as we were enjoying our relaxed chat upstairs on the deck while we waited - we worth a visit if you're in Nkata Bay.

Funky little restaurant with good thai food. The service was not the quickest but it gave me longer to watch the world go by...

Good terrace overlooking the street. Comfortable and serves great coffee. Some really nice menu choices which made a change from the local lodge offerings.
