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!

I have been past this place loads of times an for some reason it never registered to go there. We went last Sunday and had a good meal. The food was good and came with plenty meat in the dish. The price was good and the service was good as well.

I went here the first night I moved into my house just round the corner 4 years ago and have been going back regularly since. The food is great, full of flavour rich sauces and good heat from the spices. I'll definitely be coming back for the next 4 years!

We eat here regularly, either sit in or take away and it never disappoints. Great fresh ingredients and depth if flavour. The only downside is that whenever I go for a curry anywhere else in the country, it is always a massive let down!

Tried and tested for the last 6 years. We order takeaway from here most Sunday nights and it never disappoints. Banquet night sit in and take out Thursday and Sundays which is great value. Dined in many times too, including a couple of New Years Eve's. It's a small place and can get very busy peak times but the service... More

Really can not speak too highly of this restaurant. I have been many times, with family and with friends. The food is outstanding and the service is second to none. Very friendly, from the moment you walk through the door, till the moment you leave. I would have no hesitation in recommending that you try it for yourself.
