Found this little gem on a business trip in the Denver area. The food was fantastic with just the right amount of spice. The owner served our food and was treated more like family than guests. He took a genuine interest in us and explained the menu. If you sre in the area, please do yourself a favor and try... More

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and because we eat at so many chain restaurants, I was excited to find something unique and locally owned. The reviews are correct, the food here is delicious. Yes, it's in a strip mall next to a 7-11. Yes, it has a small interior and not the fanciest tables, chairs, and accessories. This is... More

Owner recommended the lamb shank, perfectly cooked, juicy, fell off the bone. Had appetizer combo which was OK, soup was good. Overall fine, lacking any special flavor or spice. Just very bland, not as I expected.

Forgot it was Ramidan so we were among the first diners at 7:45; but it quickly filled up. We had an amazing appetizer-something with a phyllo dough wrap-lovely tastes. Then two different lamb dishes, one with apricots, the lamb very tender and the flavors delightful. Oh we had the soup too. The mint tea was a delight. Must go back.

Stumbled back upon Cafe Paprika because I had a Dining Dollars coupon. When I told my wife we were going there for dinner she informed me we had been there many years before when our children were young. One is now married and the other in graduate school. Why we never came back I don't remember. The food is as... More

My husband and I saw the great reviews on this place and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad we came! We ordered the chicken tajin with vegetables as our main course and the Mediterranean sampler as an appetizer . The sampler had yummy hummus , fresh pitas, falafel, and some fried green stuff (babaganoush?) that was really... More

You could easily pass this restaurant up just by the looks of the outside. But you will be sorry if you do. The restaurant is small and has an interesting dessert scene painted on the walls. There is a cushion covered bench seat running along all four walls with small tables and chairs in the center. Moroccan music plays in... More

If there was an option to give half stars, I would have rated this restaurant at 3.5 stars. We had been here years ago, but decided to give it another try when I saw that it was rated #1 on Trip Advisor for Aurora restaurants. Our family decided to try Cafe Paprika for my birthday celebration this month. Actually, I... More

This is one of the very few dining experiences that is so wonderful that we drive an hour to go here. Abdellah, the Chef/Owner prepares better Moroccan food that we had in Morocco. Here are a few favorites -- do not miss the Bastilla -- stuffed puff pastry with powdered sugar and cinnamon on top -- delicious -- we also... More

This is by far the best Morocan food I have ever had!!!...Everything about the place was unique. The food was different, lots of flavors and the lamb meat was so juicy and tender, best meat I have ever had, the server was really nice and recommended great dishes. The place is cozy and relaxing and the owner came to say... More
