This restaurant is near the airport. We had a couple to three hours of travel looming and thought we should eat first. We had the assorted appetizer sampler, amazing curry with shrimp and Thai basil curry with chicken. Spice level 3 is what we ordered. I usually order food fairly hot. The Thai basil had some heat and was delicious.... More

The most important aspect of any restaurant is good service--it's excellent at Green Papaya. Our waitress was attentive to detail, friendly and professional...so much so it appeared she owned the joint! She doesn't, but our wish is the owner understands just how fantastic she is and how well the staff works together. Please give our waitress a big pat on... More

We went to three Thai restaurants during our stay in Jacksonville and this by far was the best. Very cool restaurant and decor, clean bathrooms and friendly staff. We got the lettuce wraps, pad Thai and red curry. All were absolutely delicious. Plus we went during lunch hours so everything was around $3-6 less. Portions are large. If you like... More

We ate here on a recommendation from our hotel. The atmosphere was a upscale modern fell. It was very nice. We have never tried thai food before and it was amazing. We got a number 2 on there spicy chart and it waa VERY hot so if you don't eat spicy food I would just stick to a number one.

My wife and I have eaten at Green Papaya several times over the last two years. We have always found their food to meet or exceed our expectations for Asian restaurants. I love the Singapore noodles. White meat chicken and shrimp on angel hair pasta. So good. I like spicy food, but not too spicy. Theirs was just right. (They... More

Solely on the basis of the TripAdvisor reviews I found my way to the Green Papaya tonight. It is around a mile from the I-95 airport exit in Jacksonville. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and the wait staff was friendly and well informed regarding the menu. I enjoyed the Amazing Curry with chicken. The dinner portion with rice was... More

I feel like this is a hidden gem b/c its in Northside Jax and a bit way from Towncenter area. Most people who shop here live in the area which is how I found this place. I eat here all the time now. I love Thai food and enjoy trying new places and yet continue coming here b/c it is... More

I have been eating here for about 3 to 4 years. The owner sometimes is doing the cooking but he is always there helping in some way and talking to customers. All the servers are very nice and friendly and the look and feel to the restaurant is pleasing and relaxing. The meals come out as a presentation but are... More
