Very tasty fresh good quality food, choose thai food (even though Indian is available). Friendly owner. Good place for lunch & dinner. We've been there 2 and both times I asked for not spicy and both times it was super spicy (for me).. unfortunately it had lots of chilli peppers. So make sure you go there as food is delicious...

I spent a month travelling in Thailand and Papaya had the best Massaman I've ever tried! I would definitely recommend and can't wait to come back!

Not sure what all the hype is about and would give this place a miss. The banana shake was good and the papaya salad was tasty but that's about it. The chicken spring rolls were dry and too much breading. I ordered the Pad Thai and something about it was not right. Had my mom taste it and she thought... More

Best Thai food ever. That's all i have to say. But since Trip Advisor forces me to use more words, I will! :). We got the crab curry dish and it was outstanding. My favorite was the garlic pepper shrimp as an appetizer. You truly can't beat it!

I had the best pad see-ew, pinapple rice and mango salad here! The food is really delicious and the service was good too. Everything tasted really fresh, no wonder it is usually very busy! I would go back to Phi Phi only for this restaurant!

This is a really good place to get a quick bite to eat if you're into Thai and Indian food. I've been eating here on and off over the last 3 months and have no complaints. One funny thing is they have a resident cat thst lives in a fridge when it's a really hot day.

A simple restaurant with another branch just around the block. We ordered the massaman curry, chicken with garlic and pepper, chicken pad kra pow. We kind of regret ordering so much because the portion are huge. But the massaman curry was so good. The broth was so thick and rich in taste. I'd come back again just for the curry.

Asked a scuba instructor where to get the best Thai food. Papaya was the answer. My friend loves massa man curry and has ordered it every time we've eaten here on Phi Phi, but she says it was hands down the best from Papaya. I didn't know what to order, so I asked for a recommendation. Ended up with crab... More
