The bustling streets of San Francisco can be tough on restaurateurs – after all, this town is very demanding of its eateries and dining choices. From the moment you step inside Green Papaya of 825 Mission Street, you will immediately know you have been whisked away to someplace different and unique. Here, the very best Vietnamese cuisine is served, from beautifully pan-fried Lemongrass Pork Chops teeming with perfect seasoning, a citrusy overtone and an egg on top for good measure to California Rolls that will redefine the meaning of what makes a great one with just one bite.
At Green Papaya, we invite you to enjoy delectable, authentic Vietnamese cuisine the way it was meant to be enjoyed – bursting with all the flavors of this lush, fertile region.
Fresh, sticky and aromatic white rices…clean, crisp vegetables…rich, tasty broth in our Pho Tai…rare and tender beef…it’s all part of the Green Papaya experience. What you will also notice about Green Papaya that makes us so different from other eateries in the area is the Japanese menu that we offer right alongside the Vietnamese selections. Whether it’s sushi or dishes such as Vegan Sweet and Sour Chicken, the Japanese food lover in your party won’t be left out.
Downtown San Francisco is replete with dining choices – and vegan dining choices at that – so to stand out in a veritable sea of restaurants is no easy task. But at Green Papaya, we can assure you that every meal you share with us will be a memorable one. From Lemongrass Chicken on Vermicelli, Eggplant and Broccoli and Shrimp Spring Rollsto incredible Vietnamese iced coffee, a unique culinary experiment is awaiting your submission.
Our restaurant is comfortably nestled in a culture-rich community of San Francisco, and we invite you to experience our culinary delights for yourself.
