My favorite restaurant in the City. Beautiful location, incredible cuisine and the staff is quite impressive and personable. Food is extremely consistent, I have never once had a bad meal or experience and would come everyday for the pad thai alone! With all of that being said, you add in the incredibly reasonable prices and you have quaint memorable restaurant that keeps us coming back for more and more. I refer everyone I know.

We have been eating here for years & have always looked forward to a quality meal & a full stomach !!

The Butterfish was perfect- tasty and tender, along with the spicy crab roll made the dinner perfect- we almost did not have room for the bananas foster, which was outtasite!

We all went home full & contented....

We've eaten at Papaya a number of times, always with good food, a wonderful waitstaff and no complaints. The ONLY complaint we had this time was that for the special four-course Valentine's Day menu, the food came out way too quickly. First and second course ran into each other (came out quickly-- too quickly).. then, thanks to our server, Claire, slowed down when she noted too much food on the table. Also, we always enjoy the friendliness of staff-- Chris and Joe are always pleasant, fun and professional! Great time.
