The menu on this site is out of date. The food was good, but there were fewer options that are shown on Open Table
Excellent food and service. I had the seven spice beef very tasty. Service was great tasty beer Santa's little helper porter.
1 server so service was slow, felt bad for the guy working. Some people got seated and walked out because it was slow on a very busy afternoon with a show at Key Arena we were attending. Overpriced Pho in a BAR setting. Not all the food was on the menu that we read about in other reviews. Definitely not coming back...sorry...
The food was delicious but they were under staffed and it was hopping before the Stevie Nicks concert. We had a 5:30 reservation and weren't greeted or seated until 6pm. They just wanted us to go away. The employee tried to claim reservations don't come through on their system.
Excellent service and good, Vietnamese food. Portions are medium size, just right for most appetites. Good value for the price. The only downside was that the restaurant got pretty noisy, because it's all hard surfaces with nothing to absorb the sound.
Service was incredibly slow, drinks and food were incredibly mediocre, and the volume was incredibly loud.
We had a great dinner at Red Papaya and Ale House. They have an excellent beer selection that changes frequently. Wonderful server who was friendly but now obtrusive. We would definitely go back if we lived in the area.
We had the best experience! Great food, service, and fun! The restaurant was packed for Adele, and out server absolutely rocked! Great night, with fabulous drinks! Thank you!
The restaurant was able to accommodate our group of 10 on a Friday night. The service was helpful & quick and the food was delicious & reasonably priced.
The food & service were great. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
Our first time at Red Papaya while going to the SIFF theater. We were pleasantly surprised. The food and service were great . We will definitely be going back.
We went to this place prior to my son's graduation at the Key Arena. The service and food was excellent. Priced right. Very short walk to the venue. Will most definitely eat there again.
It was a Saturday night pre-event crowd but wait staff was courteous, professional and we never felt pressured to finish quickly. The salad rolls, pho and green papaya salads are sure bets. Noise level can rise if other patrons talk/laugh really loud but its manageable. Great spot to catch a quick meal/drink before attending an event at or near the Seattle Center.
Red Papaya has reasonably good Vietnamese food which generally doesn't stand out from other Asian restaurants in the neighborhood. They have a beer and wine license, but apparently not a liquor license; there aren't any interesting craft cocktails available. The one thing they do have that's worth noting is that a few of the bun dishes allows diners to substitute cabbage and sprouts for the rice noodles, which provides a low-carb meal that's good for people on the paleo diet. Otherwise, there's nothing bad about the place, but there's nothing particularly memorable, either. It's a nice reasonably-priced restaurant that's convenient for events at Seattle Center, and that and the low-carb dishes are the two things that would bring me back.
Our server was great, we were seated right away. I thought the food was good. Unfortunately, our table of four received our food at three separate times. If you're trying to eat dinner together, that doesn't work and it would have been nice if the server had told us this before we ordered. Rather than wondering where half the food is while letting the other half sit and get cold. It seemed like they were prepared for the rush of the evening, there was a concert that night, but maybe the kitchen wasn't?
