For the most part, Thai restaurants are relatively new to Jacksonville. For years, Chinese restaurants were more common. Floridians have become more open to diverse cuisine. In the River City Marketplace on Jacksonville's Northside not that far from the Jacksonville International Airport is Green Papaya Pan Asian Cuisine. A great restaurant for those who need a break from fast food and food courts is Green Papaya Pan Asian Cuisine.

The decor is contemporary, sleek, and soothing in neutrals and warm browns with touches of green. A pleasant hostess greets customers at the door, and the waitstaff is courteous and attentive. Appetizers, soups, salads, fried rice, and noodles are offered on the extensive menu in addition to entrees, specialties, and curry.

Several of the enticing appetizers like Thai egg rolls, also offered vegetarian style, pork or chicken satay, served on bamboo sticks, and fried wontons are all under $8. Six soups are on the menu, and on the lighter side, there are salads with fresh ingredients like mango, lime, cashews, mixed greens and a choice of meat and seafood. Rice dishes include fragrant Jasmine rice, and beef, chicken, pork, seafood, tofu, or some combination of these. Pad Thai rice noodles served with any meat are a good introduction to this distinctive cuisine. Curry dishes range from green or red and feature various elements like coconut milk, peanut, and potato. The affordable lunch menu offers 10 distinct dishes ranging from General Tso chicken to green curry to Hawaiian chicken. While Thai food contains some spice, but they can be prepared from mild to Thai hot. Desserts include ice cream and even fried cheese cake. Basil, tamarind sauce, peppers, and tropical fruit figure prominently in many of the dishes at Green Papaya which are served family style for easier sharing of various selections. Green Papaya Pan Asian Cuisine delights with fresh ingredients and a serene atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of a popular, recently-built mall.
