Good Indian Food, clean restaurant and good value for money. Visit during Covid time. Many restaurants closed .. not in the front but the area is less touristy and the food and owners are very nice.

We ordered our food from the rolling stome bar. There were some good deals and prices were good. Thw food was awful. My butter chicken was like a bowl of tomato soup with chicken bits and the chicken pakora was worse than McDonald's chicken nuggets....We spoke with the owner when we left. He had a cheeky smile and when asked if that's how he cooked in Indian his reply was thats how the tourists like their food here! Couldn't help but smile but wouldn't recommend eating here.More

We ordered curries and pizza. Best Indian I have eaten in Thailand ever! Service was very good and the staff were very friendly. I recommend that you must visit this restaurant whilst you are there!

I ate there seceral times in february 2019. At least lockdown allows you to do all the stuff on your to do list you didn‘t have time for... To make it short: If you fancy a marvellously prepared whole fish, go to papaya restaurant. I...did also try the curries and liked them, too. The portions are big and you can bring your own beer.More

In the heart of the center, immersed in the central alleys, it still maintains the true Thai flavors of the past .... open kitchen ... so everything in the light of the sun ... the top: Yellow Noodles

Great food! I had the butter chicken and it was absolutely to die for. I finished the entire meal to myself. Everyone at the table enjoyed their dish. Affordable and worth it!
