“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Another visit with family and friends to the Papaya Tree. The place was packed inside and out, glad we booked. Excellent food and fantastic friendly staff, from Karen and Kevin to Lorraine, well done and keep up the excellent work. Will be visiting again in the New Year.

“Lovely meal, lovely restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

We have eaten in the Papaya Tree quite a few times and it never fails to disappoint.

I would recommend the smoked chilli chicken as a starter & tamarind duck or chilli & cashew nut strir fry for mains.

The menu is extensive with both Thai & Chinese options - there really is something for everyone & would suggest you pay a visit if you're planning on eating at the Playa Flamenca Commercial Ctr

We will be back

Dear Jam220912

A big thank you for taking the time to give us this great review. The Team here at The Papaya are always happy to receive such positive feedback from our guests. So glad to know that you have enjoyed each visit to us, and that so far (touch wood) we have never let you down. We can't promise that each service will be perfect for every guest, but we can promise that we will always do our best ( sorry a bit of unintentional rhyming there !)

We look forward to seeing you again soon

Warm regards
Lorraine
