The eat-in food is fantastic. The take-out does not have the same quality. If going at winter time, sit as far away from the door as possible as there isn't enough of a shield protecting dining guests from the winter air. Right in the back by the kitchen is a great spot.

Whether you live in the area or are just visiting, Dave's Green Papaya is a wonderful place to enjoy delicious Chinese and Asian dishes prepared just for you. This business started as a take-out place in a tiny space and has blossomed into a highly-regarded dining place in North Bay. Prices are reasonable and the delicious food will have you... More

I often choose Dave's Green Papaya for a quiet lunch with an old friend because of both the delicious food and the great service but also because of the atmosphere. It is always busy and yet not noisy like some restaurants are at peak hours. Sit near the street side away from the kitchen and you will enjoy a quiet... More

Went to North Bay to do a university tour on November 11. Recommended by our tour guide. Wow!!We all loved the meals we got. I had a thai dish and my husband and son had Japanese (bento boxes).Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant is a great little gem. The food is always full of flavour and very generous portions. The staff are attentive and personable. You are wise to call ahead for reservations, especially during the festive season.

Ate here for lunch with colleagues. I had the cold rolls with chicken, which was recommended when I asked for something tasty but on the lighter side. My colleagues had pad Thai, beef and broccoli, and a General Tao chicken (not sure I got that right). Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Great atmosphere. They had scented candles that gave off... More

Great lunch as always. Tried something new - Pho. Quite tasty. Great staff. Good sense of humour with regulars. Chilly in some areas of the restaurant - feel a draft. Scented candles burning and place smells great. But if you had a sensitivity to smells, you would have a hard time.
