Not a very good place for the price and was surprised to see 20% gratuity by the restaurant when asked was told its a practice in this part. Will ever go back.

The Green Papaya, located right across the street from Walmart in the Ala Moano area of Honolulu was a good choice for a midday meal if you are already in the area; however, I don't think I'd make a trip just to eat there. Both Mr. B and I got cold vermicelli bowls - his with chicken and mine with... More

This restaurant was a great little find. Travelling as a vegan can be tricky, though places like this make up for it!

I always eat here when I visit my cousin, Cecil. He lives nearby, so we park behind the restaurant and come in through the back door and kitchen. There is always someone there peeling some kind of vegetable. We get Pho and spring rolls, maybe vietnamese coffee.

I am still remembering the vegetarian soup and spring rolls and wishing I could go back! This place is terrific and deserves to be at the top of Honolulu restaurants! PS We ordered via a take out place, so if you want, they can deliver!

Green Papaya is right on Kapiolani Blvd next to Walmart and near Don Quixote. The area is jampacked with little karaoke bars, big restaurants, more Asian restaurants than you can think of and gift shops - not to mention, it's literally right next to Ala Moana Mall. We weren't expecting to get seating because it seemed full from the window,... More

Went there last month due to a business trip to Hawaii. I had it with my college there for lunch. I think it really worth the money for the food. I ordered PHO & Vietnamese spring roll. It was sooo nice, I want to take my wife there next time.
