Recommended by a native of Dallas for having great Thai food..and we were not disappointed. We started with the shrimp rolls and peanut sauce- yummy. We ordered the Pho (which looked fresh and came with beautiful fresh veggies) - I would order this when I go back. I had shrimp curry with mixed vegetables and brown rice… Very very good... More

The food was delicious and the portions wee generous. The service was fast though I was there on a slow night so I can't vouch for what the service would be like during a busier time. The prices were reasonable too. I had a spring roll which was large portion with a delicious peanut sauce and a Vietnamese "pancake" which... More

Not a big place, but the food is great and always tastes fresh. We love the spring rolls and the broccoli and beef dishes in particular. Can be busy on weekend nights.

Was staying down the street at the Melrose and popped into this place. I thought, for some reason, it would be a mediocre kind of place. I had the banh xeo which was wonderful and the service was very attentive. Really fresh food and inexpensive. Would recommend this to anyone.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a low-key dinner at the Green Papaya. The host was animatedly talking to another server when we walked in and pretty much ignored us, but luckily there was another very nice server who let us know we could choose our seats. We were also double lucky when he turned out to be our server for... More

Their rice bowls are fantastic. You can pretty much order them to your specifications. Service has always been top notch. Their patio is quite comfortable as long as the weather cooperates. Prices very reasonable for the area. Will always return for a healthy rice bowl with all the veggies.

Inside looks a little bit dated and seedy. Not the most helpful of serving staff but the food was ok. Would go back, but not in a hurry when there are so many other choices to eat out
