Good service, great food, very fresh. I have been there many times and will go several more times, the food is delicious! Nice place for a group of people, parking available which is good for a restaurant on Preston!

While driving through Little Italy in an attempt to find a nice restaurant, my partner and I spotted Green Papaya and decided to try it. We definitely were not disappointed. First, the waitresses were very kind and attentive, even making small talk with us during...More
