Came here on a very busy Saturday before Christmas. They were absolutely jammed and standing in the queue to enter, I wondered if our booking was still OK. But there was no need to be concerned - we were taken straight to our table and given our menus. Good start. Unfortunately it took about 15 minutes before anyone came to... More

Very friendly warm welcome, rather unassuming inside, but food is better than appearances would suggest. Soup starter was pleasing enough (bit stingy on the bread). Main of Greek style burger (!?) was tasty and filling. Rather odd 'genga' style pile of chips was irritatingly small on quantity - barely 8 chunky chips, more could be offered with not a great...

The restaurant is decorated in a contemporary style and we sat in a comfortable booth seat , we were served promptly by a polite and friendly... More

Recently visited for an evening meal with family including my extremely fussy 3 year old. Staff were very welcoming and friendly (family run) and we knew from dining there last year (also had a fantastic meal) that they had a childrens section under the stairs (an area filled with books and changing colour lights), so we asked to sit close...

My friend and I hit the Printworks for a pre gig meal around 6pm. The waiter was pleasant and helpful and the menu was good. I chose the chicken souvlaki and my vegetarian friend ordered the vegetable moussaka. Our wine arrived promptly and was perfectly palatable, my red wine could have done with being a little warmer to bring it... More

I've walked past this restaurant plenty of times opting instead for some of the other establishments in the Printworks. Yet, when they were quoting extended wait times or closing early (for a private function), we tried Papa G's. Not sure what to expect, the staff were friendly and prompt in dealing with our orders, and returning to ensure we had... More

Good freindly service. Had fishcake starter & vegetable mossaka main. Both sadly a little bland. Slad was excellent, bursting with freshness & flavour.

We went into Manchester this weekend for the Xmas markets, so it was busy to say the least, after having a drink in the print works we just walked in to papa G's to book a table for later that evening, which they did no problem. It was our second time there and the food was fantastic both times! Staff... More

Having been away for 2-3 years we were very happy to find that Papa G's is as good as we remembered. Way busier than we would have imagined on a Saturday afternoon, we soon had a table and already had an idea what we wanted to order based on previous visits. The service was very good, our starter and salad... More
