A lot of friends have raved on to me about this place and it did not disappoint! The food was amazing and our own personal tastes taken into consideration. I suggest this place to anyone I know is going to be in the area! I wish I could eat here every day!

I visited with a friend two days ago, we ordered two starters, only received one and then the waiter said we only ordered one but by that point we didn't want to wait even longer. We ordered the crab curry after lots of persistence from our waiter, I told him in allergic to dairy and he said they could use... More

We booked a trip and asked a lady who had lived here a while where would she recommend for good Thai food. She suggested this place. By she was not wrong. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Toning down the spice of a curry if too hot. And the food when it came out was in massive portions. I've... More

Loved the food. Excellent papaya salad and curries (we tried the crab curry). Very simple dining area with air conditioning. Quite cheap. Go for it!

There are 2 Papayas on Phi Phi. After reading some reviews I had to check it out. I sat down reading all the feedback of previous consumers on the walls. That did set my expectation rate at a high level. First dish was Curry Penang. Easy to say, it must have been the best one I ever had. Next day... More

Don't mix it with other Papaya place, which is "on the yellow road" - this is hidden a bit in the corner. Serves Thai, Indian and Israeli food. Maybe smth else - from a little experience we got while... More

The food was good, they have a great variety in dishes. The employees were a bit shy, but friendly. There a 2 Papaya´s in Koh Phi Phi, with the same concept. The drawings of customers on the walls give the place a nice and personal touch. They serve big dishes, so don´t order too much!
