First Review by Sally K

Amazing Curry - Edit

What a great find! I was in the area for work and decided to stop in for their red curry I saw listed online (since I'm a curry fanatic). I recently became a vegetarian but prefer curries to be vegan (no fish sauce) and they gladly accommodated. The service was perfect - not too overbearing but checked in at the right times. I wish I lived around here because I could eat their curry every day! Also was pleasantly surprised that brown rice was an option and not at an additional cost. I'll be back if I'm ever driving through again!!

Pros: Ability to accommodate vegan diet, friendly servic

surprisingly good! - Edit

I must say I've lived in the area and never been here, so I wasn't expecting too much. The food was great, service too, and there were so many vegan options. The curry was great. I'm planning my next visit so I can try more. Oh, and the only vegan option in the dishes is the chicken because the tofu has egg.

Yummy & Super Veg Friendly - Edit

Took my husband to Green Papaya because of Sally's review. It was so delicious, extremely fresh and they were very vegan-friendly. They even knew to tell us about the egg in the tofu! If we lived near by, we'd be regulars. The papaya salad and Tom Yom soup were especially terrific.

Pros: Great Food, Excellent Service, Low-key decor

Cons: Bathroom area could be cleaner

Outstanding homemade tofu - Edit

This restaurant is one of Bergen County's best kept secrets. It is a small house-like building amonst business buildings on the edge of Hackensack. Green Papaya has a charming wait staff, and the "sizzling platters" such as the Sizzling Homade Tofu platter are really delicious. The tofu is like firm custard, and is wonderful. The other vegetarian options always include crisp fresh vegetables.
Sometimes at lunch it can get crowded, and it is closed on Tuesday. I highly recommend trying'll get hooked like we did.

Pros: Homemade Tofu!, Delicious coconut sauces, Many veggie options

Cons: closed on Tuesday, lunches can get crowded
