I was hoping to find a nice basket of fish n chips on the coast, and thanks to you, fellow reviewers I found Papas! They don't serve a few pieces of cod haphazardly thrown in day old batter and cooked in old oil. They served up what can best be described as a fish steak coated in a flavorful crust.... More

IF you want some good tasting food at a reason price this is the place to go. Mini cod and chips I would recommend. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them.

We just visited this restaurant for the first time after reading some reviews and we were not disappointed. We had fish and chips with some extras. Everything was hot and delicious. Definitely freshly prepared and cooked. They have a good selection of choices, portions are very generous, place was clean and staff was friendly. Definitely going back!!

I used to often have lunch here over 9 years ago when I worked in Folkestone and today I found myself back in the town for business. Papas is every bit as good as I remembered really fresh fish, crispy light batter and hand cut chips served with a wedge of lemon and mushy peas. They offer a great choice... More

Took my fiancé here for a bit of lunch. I must say the fish was outstanding. The customer service was good and the prices were ok. I will definitely go here again.

The fish is fresh, beautifully cooked and the chips are superb examples of the proper traditional chip. Service is good and friendly and the prices are very reasonable. If a fish and chip supper (or lunch) is what you want, it is hard to imagine that you could find better,

Visiting Folkestone on a freezing cold January day, we found most of the restaurant/cafes on the seafront closed. So we wandered up the hill and found this gem on the main shopping street. It is not a big place but the selection of fish was amazing. The chips are what I would consider 'real' chips and it was a big... More
