We ate at Papaya a couple of times during our week stay in Karon. The restaurant is spacious and the food and prices very good. Friendly service in a good location.

We ate here twice. The building layout is worth mentioning as it would appear two restaurants have been joined back to back - so as you pass through you have the choice of sitting outside, inside, outside (by a lovey water feature), inside or outside! The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. The service was also very good.

He had a simple dinner there. The food was great and the staff was very pleasant. I have to agree with one of the comments that they brought the food too fast. Yet, not from the micro 😜 One of the good options in the neighborhood

Very good Thai food for good prices. Substantial meal for 3 of us (including 2 large Singha beers) came to just over £20. Shrimp and cashew nuts, pad thai, fried rice and garlic chicken all very tasty. Very speedy and friendly service. Recommended.

Found this place just around the corner from where we were staying on the first night. And what a little gem it was. We ended up going there twice during our 5 night stay as we wanted to know that the first time wasn't a fluke...and it wasn't. Great food at even better prices. Staff were attentive and a must...

We visited Papaya in the last week of our stay. Nice restaurant, with little fountain, lots of waiters. Service swift, good food, Thai dishes are good. Cocktails are nice and reasonably priced. Would visit again.

After reading about this restaurant on TripAdvisor we decided to go for dinner and we were definitely impressed. We had Thai food and it was some of the best we have had on our trip, the red curry was particularly good. The cocktails are also well priced and very good. If staying at Karon Beach then I would definitely suggest... More

Found this restaurant to be only average Polite staff but food came very quick and we like to eat at a far slower pace.

We ate here four times out of fourteen days. On one occasion we had two starters two mains and two drinks each the total bill was just less than £18. Quick service and good food would definitely recommend.
