A must eat place, and the staff was super friendly. Was a real good experience. Lot of vegetarian options, They will customize as per your need.

Don't order the Szechuan - unless your idea of Szechuan sauce is warm, watery ketchup with a splash of soy sauce. I had the misfortune of ordering Szechuan Shrimp. What arrived on the table lacked any resemblance to Szechuan Shrimp I've ordered anywhere else in the nation. While the vegetables were appropriately crispy, the shrimp was overcooked. The sauce had... More

Have visited here several times over the years and the quality is consistent and good. Best pad Thai I have had in the city. It's worth a stop.

I salivate when I think about Green Papaya. This modern "Asian fusion" restaurant is hidden in plain site in the middle of a strip mall in a shopping center. My first impressions were: 1) the decor is very modern, upscale and clean looking- this could be pricey. 2) They might dump & garnish 'boxed' food onto a nice plate &... More

Whenever we spend the night near the airport for an early morning flight, we eat at this restaurant the night before. It never disappoints. This visit, I had the Thai basil chicken and asked for it medium. I do believe it was more on the hot side and had my mouth on fire for a while, it was a great... More

The food was delicious and obviously prepared fresh. It is always a good sign when the "simplest" dish - fried rice (ordered by a child) was the best on the table. The servings are on the large size. They do not offer a children's menu, but will adjust spice from level 1 to 5, so anything can be ordered for... More

I've been here a few times and have had a great experience every time. The food is good. If you grew up eating extra spicy lao papaya salad and need a fix, this is the place. This is the only asian restaurant that I've been to that makes papaya salad that rivals my mom's papaya salad. I've had their pad... More

I really enjoy this place. Though I've only eaten in house once, I get take out a few times a month. Tonight's delights are chicken pad Thai and beef basil fried rice. Both are delicious! The staff is always friendly, the restaurant is clean and prices are definitely reasonable. Go check it out. You will not be disappointed.

We are family style Pad Thai and Thai Basil Fried Rice. I would love to have the Fried Rice again and could eat it almost every day. It was some of the best fried rice I have eaten! We will be back when passing through.
