I was impressed
My wife and 8-month old daughter went to Green Papaya because our favorite, Hot Peppers, is presently closed (with a note on the door referring to an absence of kitchen staff).

I had tried GP on Preston Street and was disappointed, but as we have all learned by now, a local chain such as GP can vary between locations. So I gave it a try.

The chicken satay was so good I ordered it a second time (Hot Peppers chicken satay was going down in terms of quality, so it was kind of refreshing). I ordered the Thai chicken fried rice. It was ok.

Hot Peppers recently started using vegetables in their Thai chicken fried rice that was pretty similar to the type of ones you'd see in a frozen bag at the grocery store.But GP used veggies that tasted fresh. And unlike Hot Peppers, there was no broccoli or cauliflower.

I planning on going back.

PS: It's a long thin room, but roomy enough that my daughter could sit comfortably.

cutest little server
I went there after a long day at work for dinner i believe its was a thurday day night...the server we got was soo funny and soo cute she just made my night better! We werent sure on what we wanted so we asked her to surprise us..she asked what kind of meat we preferr and spicy level..when the food arrived it was chicken with cashew 2* spicy and beef with bamboo...it was soo yummy..portion size was a lil bit smaller than i expected with the price u were paying but with the server entertainin us with her smart remarks or little jokes it was worth it..i will go back and visit just because the server was the nicest we had at the restaurant

A quick downtown lunch
Decent curries and fast service if somewhat lacking in friendliness. For lunch, go early (11:30) or make a reservation.

Terrible
Went for dinner and simply put:

Drinks and then food ordered. Food put on table under one minute of ordering. Wine arrived about 5 minutes after food.

Coconut curry chicken dish was slopped onto serving tray (messy) and best described as a serving of pre-frozen peas mixed with bit of tasteless sauce.

Side of rice was cold.

Will never go back.

Not a nice experience at all...
2 of us tried to make reservation the day before for lunch, but they replied the whole restaurant was full. At lunch time we passed by physically so we went in to check if they had spare table or not, and they had no problem sitting us (half of the tables were empty, but marked as reserved at that time).

We sat down and was served by a very rude server, she basically threw us the menus and ran away! Oh well! We guessed she was not happy because we should not come in without reservation, but you know what, I won't be next time!

My friend ordered rice with cashews and chicken while I had Pad Thai. Her food was fine but my noodle was salty and tasted like it was made from ketchup... It was not Pad Thai my friend!!!

Fantastic with just the right Spice.
Authentic, and tasty with a perfect touch of spice!! I ordered the Pad Thai Chicken spiced #3 and it was absolutly perfect. The taste and the presentation was fantastic. The decor is quite unique and the service was with a smile and very attentive and helpful. I would highly reccommend to any Thai fan!!
