Reviewed 31 March 2014

I came to paprika with my friends who I wanted to meet after forever. N this is what I get a live band screaming on top of their lungs with huge speakers n in audience there r 3 people. I couldn't hear my friends sitting right next to me n in return we all got a massive headache.

Seriously its really annoying, cause we like to come out to unwind ourselves n discuss work n this is what we get, there is enough stress from d first day of the week n this is what u get. I really couldn't hear myself d music now just imagine d pain we had to go through.

“Always Good Food”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

Come here regularly and have never had a bad meal, the tapa's are amazing too, the staff are always friendly and make you feel most welcome, they even remember what you drink !!!! A nice place to chill out on the weekday evenings, yes it could do with a lick of paint and a tidy up but so what the food, service and staff make up for that, well done Paprika !!!

Walked into paprika and the staff where very friendly, we had children with us so we went straight into the soft play area. As walking through the restaurant half of it was in darkness!!! We were took into the dark play area where the staff put on three lights. The place was freezing we couldn't take our coats off.They had one small electric heater on in a huge room. There was another 2 broken heaters in there. And a broken gas fire. The place was filthy, floors,windows,tables,were disgusting. Tables were sticky with old spilt drinks on them. Filthy tissues everywhere. Litter all over the place. Came out after 10 mins and went in restaurant. It was empty!!! No atmosphere no music on and still half in darkness. Ordered children's meals which came out fast. Chicken nuggets where hard and stale bit of soggy lettuce and a few cold chips!!! We had the buffet lunch which was ok. The glasses where filthy with old lipstick around the edges.

“Great place”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

Came here over the festive period and it was great. The food was amazing and the service from the waiters was just as good. The place was completely full over at the time but the food still came out at a great standard and within the time said. The service from the staff was second to none. Whenever we needed something we didn't have to wait longer than a minute to get seen.
I would recommend this place to everyone because it has great food and the atmosphere is so good. It is a great place just for a drink or for the family.

“Will never go back”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Coming from an asian background I know what authentic food is, and I am afraid this is not it.
The food was that spicy even though we had asked the waiter to take it easy on the spices and the some of the vegatables in the curry were raw, they had probably been thrown in at the end.
Will definitely not go back here.
