“Very accommodating!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I had a special event to host and needed certain requests to help make this evening a success. The manager of this place was so friendly and accommodating. He made provisions for all of us and even had my name type-written on the reserved table. How professional!!
They have since done renovations to the place and it is fantastic. Keep up the service!!

“Saturday Lime”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Had a great time liming with the locals on a Saturday night. Paprika was packed! DJ was playing some great dance tunes and everyone seemed to be having a great time. Lively crowd, seemed to be late 20s on up as far as age range went. Highly recommend if you're looking for somewhere to have a few drinks and do some dancing...or you can go out on the patio for a much more low key scene.

“more liming scene than restaurant experience”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Paprika scene changed from restaurant to bar atmosphere.The service is fair and food is ok.On Fridays the place can be very noisy and packed with people .There is also a singer on the bar top who performs.

“Fridays at Paprika - the LimeRadar experience”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

One of the more difficult decisions to make on a Friday around 3:30 pm is always where to lime later. Paprika may have made that decision a bit more difficult, or should it be somewhat easier?Just to give a brief background, Paprika was initially located on the Western Main Road, but relocated to the new, slightly larger venue at 15 Rust Street, St.Clair. This upgraded venue has given paprika the opportunity to accommodate more patrons at a more suitable location.

The LimeRadar team visited Paprika around 10pm on Friday. The first thing that caught our attention was the placement of several large old underwater marine mines right after walking through the entrance. We instantly knew this lounge would be a unique experience.

There are several settings where patrons can occupy based on their preference. There is a seating area that is conducive for dining, an elevated patio section to socialize and mingle, and of course Paprika's signature dance floor.

The dining area is open-air with the presence of non-intrusive trees to add to the relaxing atmosphere. The patio has both standing and sittings areas and serves as a buffer spot between the dining area and dance floor.

The dance floor is what really sets Paprika apart from other lounges. The dance floor itself is made up of different sections. There are several couches placed strategically on the outskirts to avoid encroachment while patrons dance to the latest hits. The lighting system and unique decor add to the experience of the lounge, one that cannot be described fully without being there. It seems creativity was the theme when the dance floor was being designed.

The DJ entertained patrons throughout with popular hits from various genres. He was also not reluctant to accept requests from patrons, the perfect example being a birthday request. Paprika is also known for their Latin music slant, so you can expect to see some Latin dancers in the mix.

There is a fully stocked bar by the dance floor with no problems of being served in a timely manner. A mini bar is situated outside near the dining area to accommodate outside patrons.

Paprika definitely consists of all the necessary elements to deliver a satisfying liming experience and the LimeRadar team will surely return soon to sample the various dishes that look very inviting.
