Coupon Deception

We found the service, food, and value to be average for a strip mall restaurant. Our complaint followed the dinner when the check arrived and the owner explained that the coupon printed from the website less than 24 hours before was expired. Indeed. On reading the very fine print, I discovered... read more

We arrived from out of town 20 minutes before closing but were cordially greated and served promptly. Very homey atmosphere with a locals/regular crowd, but best of all quality food. We had gyros, appetizer sampler and kebab combo, lick your plate good.

Great food served in a casual atmosphere. Was not sure if Moroccan food would be spicy, mine was not, but very tasty! Try the mint tea it warms you through and through. Just what I needed. Thank you Trip Advisor.

Moroccan food is hard to find in the greater Denver area, so we were happy when we heard about Cafe Paprika. This small restaurant is located in the Uvalda Shoppette stripmall behind 7-11. The decor includes a nice desert mural; seating is at tables, not on floor cushions. After sharing a tasty Chicken Bastilla appetizer, we ordered Apricot Lamb and... More

This little restaurant is hidden in the corner of a small shopping mall which is a shame because they have a wonderful menu. The atmosphere is pleasant and the personnel are friendly. The food is, for some items, an acquired taste; but all in all it is a great place to have a good meal.

Ate with another couple last night, Valentines Day. We had a reservation and were promptly seated in this very small restaurant. And then promptly ignored for at least 20 minutes. When we ordered, a harried owner came out and took the order with two great misinterpretations of our order. We waited 30 minutes for an appetizer to arrive. It was... More

The good: The staff was nice, attentive, and filled the mint tea about a zillion times. It was clean, well lit and quiet. The falafel was really good, and I normally don't like falafel. The meh: Nothing had much flavor. The gyro meat was dry. The hummus, baba ganoush and tziki sauce all tasted about the same. EVERYTHING had too... More

It is no surprise that this restaurant has been in business for over 20 years. The food was fantastic and the service was welcoming. I am so glad to have discovered this little gem of a restaurant in a strip mall in Aurora. If you are in the mood for something exotic and friendly, this is the place.
