Papaya is OK as far as thai in a shopping center goes. The soup & appetizers are good. The sushi was not as described (some descriptions said crab stick, some said crab - it was all crab stick) & I would not get it again. The dining room is dim, generic, & had Italian crooner music playing while the bar... More

My friend and I had a nice dinner here last weekend. The service was excellent. The appetizers were excellent - we had the chicken satay and steamed dumplings. The thai iced tea was excellent. Our main courses were very good and average. Overall a nice experience.

I've now eaten at Papaya at least four times for both lunch and dinner. Most recently, I ordered the red curry chicken lunch special which came with a soup (I chose hot and sour) and a mini spring roll. I had dinner here the same night and ordered the boat noodles. Everything was delicious and the service was friendly and... More

My family decided to give Papaya a try after several recommendations... we were not disappointed. My children had the general tso's fish, which was a special that day, they both loved it and the flavor was amazing. I got the salmon in Bangkok and the salmon was cooked perfectly... I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Recently started working in the area and was looking for a Thai place. Tried this place for the 1st time. Order spicy basil fried rice with chicken & was extremely disappointed. Very little chicken in it and way too much bamboo. Flavor was bland and ordered spicy level 7 out of 10 and had very little heat to it. Will... More

We stopped for lunch w/ a group for lunch. 7 people in our party. Beverages and app's came quick, but soon, we noticed tables that came in 10 minutes after us get their food, eat, leave then someone new sat and ordered. Nothing was said to us about the wait. We waited 50 minutes for the food (which actually was... More

I got a miso soup and some pieces of nigiri. The soup had no miso flavor and tough tofu. The seaweed was little to none. The sushi looked fine, but the smell and taste was not close to fresh. Not at all satisfied with the price point and quality received. They should get ride of their sushi bar; it was... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to the Pittsburgh Airport and are glad we did. The food was delicious, and they gave us big servings. Prices were quite reasonable, especially the lunch special, which was bigger than expected. The servers were very polite and attentive, and the restaurant comfortable and clean. We plan to stop here again next... More

Papaya is a Thai restaurant in a strip mall; just a few shops down from a Panera Bread (they also offer several Chinese options). I was greeted quickly and offered the seat of my choice (as there were few other customers). The menu offered a number of lunch specials which include a soup and spring roll in addition to your...

I seek out Thai restaurants when I am traveling because I try to stick to a Paleo/Whole30 diet and Thai food tends to offer some compliant options. I was greeted by the hostess, seated quickly, and my server was with me right away. I ordered the tom kha soup with shrimp and the eggplant entree with chicken and no rice... More
