Papaya Thai may have moved 100 yards from its original premises, but it still offers the same first-class Thai food and service that it has always been known for. Indeed, the Papaya Thai team strives to surpass the excellent standards of their previous establishment, much to the delight of the restaurant’s many loyal regulars. Papaya Thai has become the go-to place for both locals and visitors to enjoy authentic Thai cuisine thanks to its wide menu of classic and contemporary Thai delights, which are made using fresh local produce and ingredients sourced direct from Thailand. You might begin your Papaya Thai dining experience with Thai fishcakes, steamed mussels in spicy house sauce, or crispy pastry parcels fi lled with minced prawn and chicken and served with sweet-and-sour sauce. Alternatively, share a mixed platter for two and try a bit of everything. Continue with a traditional Thai prawn salad; classic mild massaman curry made with coconut milk, onions, potatoes, cashew nuts and carrot; the chef’s special of honey-roasted duck stir-fried in honey, or spice things up with the volcano Thai chicken – tender chicken with hot curry paste, special chilli sauce, bamboo shoots, fi ne beans, red and green peppers, mushrooms and sweet basil. Finish with a palate-cleansing duo of hand-crafted ice creams – perhaps stem ginger and rhubarb, and toffee and apple – or Thai mango rice pudding. As well as the main menu, there are also several great-value set menus, which are ideal for indecisive diners, or those new to Thai cuisine.
