About Papaya Tree

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!

Nice for a quick pit stop
24 August 2015  
We decided to order several "small bites" and so we were surprised when 5 substantial portions arrived for the two of us. However, all were very tasty, if not very standard. The fish cakes were a bit on the rubbery side, as I believe now most of the restaurants buy them frozen and cook them. But the lettuce wraps were delicious, the Som Tum suitably fresh and spicy and the pork vermicelli delicious. Sadly, we were the only people in there, (on a Friday night), so atmosphere? No. The staff are a little bit dossy but seemingly charming, I would imagine it gets a bit disorganised if it's busy. Well worth a visit if you are up that way.
