Had the wonton soup which was very tasty. Then the "amazing curry" with shrimp and scallops. It was delicious. The curry was a very heavy thick peanut based just how I like it. Broccoli was cooked nicely and not overdone like some places. Big portions. I will return. Prices very reasonable, too.

This restaurant is in a strip that is part of the River City Marketplace near the airport, a few doors down from Best Buy and across the parking lot from a multiplex movie theater.
As soon as you walk in, you just feel relaxed. The furniture is contemporary and comfortable, and they have a nice small waterfall mounted on the back wall for a pleasant white noise background. The service is friendly and attentive.
The best feature is the food itself. It's as good as any Thai food we've tried anywhere in the country. As far as heat, unless you can take really hot Thai food, don't go over 3 out of 5 on the heat scale (you've been warned).
Since it's in sort of a hidden location, it's never too crowded, unlike the long line of chain restaurants (Red Lobster, Chili's, Olive Garden, BBW's, etc. just yards away.
If you ever have some extra time before or after a flight, it's definitely worth finding... just keep it to yourself, though, or it'll get too popular and us locals will have to wait in line :-)

I have been to this place on several occasions. I always enjoyed my food and the service. The Green Papaya is a great place to eat a Asian dish in Jax

We've eaten at Green Papaya many times and it is NEVER a disappointment. The food is great! The restaurant is very clean and the service friendly. It is a pleasure to find such a good restaurant in Jacksonville (and a surprise for the north side of town).
