Thai Papaya is a high quality restaurant. Went for lunch with the family. We had three very different lunch specials: fried rice, green curry, and pad won send. Took turns sharing. Everyone left well satisfied.

This was for a take-out order, so we chose carefully, as some things (Asian food, esp.) just don't carry home very well. They have to be okay to re-heat, aka nuke up. So, for three, including a middle-schooler, we called in for Thai spring rolls; for one of the items marked "new" on the menu, the Steamed Thai Dumplings; and... More

Small portion sizes, prices not, even at lunch; flavors ok, but not super. Service was fine, atmosphere was fine, location was easy to find.

The service at Thai Papaya was efficient but not overly personal. The food came out quick so that was a plus but I wasn't too impressed with the taste. It was okay but I've had better. I think I'd go elsewhere the next time.

I've been to Thai Papaya several times and have always enjoyed the food. The lunch menu is a bargain with an entree and soup of spring roll for only $7.49. The service though is always incredibly slow since they do not have enough staff. If you order carry out, allow at least 1/2 for it to be ready.

We all ordered "medium" but my husband's dish was HOT! I had to give him all the rice from my order to cool it down (2 of us also tasted his.). Although My son and liked the food, it was difficult for my daughter who does not even want mild to find a nutritious dish. So it was 2 passes... More

My husband really likes this restaurant for lunch - It is ok on occasion. I usually get the pad thai with tofu and ask for it spicy. A few sit down tables - so very small. Excellent service.
