Situated on Kensington High Street, Papaya Tree is popular with the locals and a must for anyone craving for authentic Thai food. The interior is cool and contemporary, with wooden floors, modern
light fittings and a simple white colour scheme – perfect for low-key lunches and dinner with friends. The chefs use only the best ingredients, with fresh herbs and vegetables flown in from
Thailand twice a week. At lunch, Papaya Tree buzzes with the sound of hungry food fans tucking into their modestly priced one-dish meals. In the evening, diners can enjoy traditional dishes like
tamarind duck stir-fry; spicy jungle curry with chicken; and crispy fried fish with ginger and spring onions. Remember to save room for one of their exotic desserts!
