Whether you are dining in... or taking away the food and service are superb. The King Prawns are succulent... and the Kingfisher Lager is spot on

I went to paprika recently with some friends for an evening meal. Perhaps they were short-staffed but the person who took our orders seemed to become stressed by the large number of guests - it was busy but by no means full. The atmosphere was rather strained. There were mistakes in some orders, and the service of meals was a... More

We always get our curries from here. You always get a great meal regardless of the dish. The special is really good value. Always good service and really polite staff.

always seems to be steady take away trade although restaurant rarely full when we have visited. Friendly efficient service although atmosphere isn't great. Bangladeshi menu which is quite adequate without being extensive. Nicely presented food with good taste.

I struggle to find a decent Indians in my area and always overlooked this. Decided to go based on the reviews on here and had a great experience. Food is amazing and you get a decent sized portion. Interior isnt anything special and very basic but its more about the food for me.

We had an early evening meal at Paprika, and it was excellent. The service was good, and the quality of the food was even better. We just had a main course, a rice dish and a nan bread between the two of us. Very filling. We'll be back soon !

Last reviewer said "nothing fancy", I do agree. It was all a bit average, dahl and sag aloo oily, naan breads a bit too much on the overdone side. Chilli pickle at the start was good and the rice was nice. Friends commented on the chewy lamb. If it was a bit cheaper I would give it a 3 score... More

We don;t go to Paprika as often as we used to, but always pleasantly welcomes by Maleek and his staff! Menu covers most tastes but if you ask, they'll cook anything or just ask for "something different" and they'll surprise you! Nothing fancy (and that is not meant as a criticism), just good food, simple restaurant, good service and not... More

I can't find better Indian food than here. Low Fell has some excellent Indian restaurants and take aways but I think this is the best and I've tried them all many times!
