“Among the best in St Albans”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

With its small menu, this restaurant is able to pay attention to detail and produce food that looks good and tastes great. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is lovely, managing to be both cosy and airy, relaxed and classy. The restaurant is situated at what is, at the moment, the less fashionable end of St Albans, which means that many people do not see it. I really hope it does well as I intend to go back here regularly.

“We travelled from Cork for this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Beautiful balance of flavours. The chief has a very light but sure touch with flavours and seasonings. The ambiance is relaxed and welcoming. The hosts are friendly and warm. We just loved the Paprika experience and will definitely be back.

I keep going back to Paprika because of the great food and lovely service. Really, really hoping that they have their late license granted and I can go there for dinner after work!

“Quality food, Relaxed atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

stumbled across the restaurant looking for a late lunch. Pleasantly surprised with the general quality of the menu. They certainly know how to cook fish and their desserts are original and very, very, tasty. The enthusiasm for food displayed by the owner is infectious and very evident in all that is served.

“Excellent Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

I have lived in St Albans over 15 years and saw this place recently. It's only when I saw it on Trip Advisor I thought it was worth a try.

I went with my family (8 month baby, my wife and my In Laws) on a Sunday for a late lunch.

It was excellent, the atmosphere is great, service is very polite and friendly. The food was absolutely lovely. It is tasty, different, well thought out and not expensive. Will certainly go again, St Albans needs more of these nice, good, independent food places, we are all too content with chain restaurants.
