Diner Reviews
  • "Took a chance on Red Papaya because I liked the name. I needed to find a place to eat before the Cher D2K Concert in Seattle. Not knowing anything about the area or the restaurants in Seattle Center I took a shot in the dark. They did not disappoint! We started with the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Shrimp Summer Rolls. I had the Kalbi plate, and my friend had the Ginger Chicken Pho, everything was delicious! They are a small place, so if you want a table without the wait, make a reservation. The bar is well stocked, so you will have a nice selection of drinks. The noise level can get a little loud, but if you show up early like we did, you can get in & out before the real party crowd shows up. I would eat here again next time I'm in Seattle!"

  • "I really love the pho with the de-lite noodles, they're made from zucchini, are much lower in carbs and taste delicious. Can't believe they're made from zucchini because the texture is fantastic. Give it a try, you'll be pleasantly surprised."

  • "Really nice, unpretentious food, goes really well with the lengthy list of draft beers. Had a very satisfying dinner, at a very satisfying price."

  • "The food was fantastic, and they did a great job of personalizing my salad. The prices were good as well. BUT, the service was slow! There were several empty tables around us, but it took 25 minutes to get our food! I'll definitely be back though!"

  • "Eclectic menu of Vietnamese, Thai, etc. Wife didn't like the fried rolls. Unappealing appearance. Spicy chicken dish was very good. Noise level very, very high on a Wednesday night at 7. Had to almost yell to carry on a conversation. A lot of restaurants seem to be like that these days and patrons seem to have a good time, but if you want to have a quiet ambience I wouldn't recommend this restaurant."

  • "The food was good but the place is loud, loud, loud! Don't take a date here, you will never be heard. My friend and I had to text each other to have a conversation. Must be the acoustics."

  • "We just returned from Vietnam and found the food at Red Papaya to be just as good as what we had there."

  • "A fun casual restaurant. Good food and drinks. Our group ordered (tall & short) beers, wine and an assortment of cocktails. The only problem we had is that the space has a cement floor and brick walls which don't absorb sound. The noise was incredible - we could only hear the person next to us. It might be better to go with 2 or 4 people on a busy night. The service was good - especially with a busy and noisy restaurant."

  • "Ate at Red Papaya before a recent concert and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent! The Yam Fries are a must, perfectly cooked and served with a delicious dipping sauce. Egg rolls were really good too. Yellow curry was flavorful, but not too spicy. Nice portions. The only complaint is it was VERY loud. It's a pretty small place and 1 loud table pretty much ruined any dinner conversation we might have had. Don't know if sound echoes off the brick walls or why it's so loud, but it was crazy loud. It gets pretty crowded on event nights, so I recommend making a reservation."

  • "For lunch enjoyed a fish sandwich on a toasted roll with a side of French fried yams. The sandwich and fries arrived hot and were tasty. Very good service was provided by Jen."

  • "Never would've thought this place has Vietnamese food. The pho was excellent, big bowl of noodles, lots of meat and a side plate of jalapeños, basil and bean sprouts for 8 bucks. The shrimp and chicken crispy rolls were really excellent as well."

  • "Great waitress, excellent service, reasonable prices. Wanted to love it. Unfortunately the food was only so-so. I might go back for drinks and appetizers sometime since it is so close to where i live, but dinner? nope."

  • "Great time here. Very friendly and knowledgeable waitress who really mushed things along when I mentioned we were going to a theater event and had a limited amount of time to dine. fish and chips were great, crab cream cheese wontons yummy, and the spring rolls very fresh and tasty. My drink took quite a while to prepare, so the waitress said it was on the house. Love it when the wait staff addresses an issue before I have to. We will definitely be back."

  • "Most everything we ordered was good and the prices were reasonable by lower Queen Anne standards. We'll definitely be back."
