“Amaze-balls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This little place was just around the corner from where we were staying. From the outside, it was quite unassuming - we were after a steak and after checking the menu, walked in. We were greeted straight away by a friendly waiter who checked if we had visited before. We said no and he explained the menu/drinks ordering system - which was nice! we ordered steaks and whilst the was a longer than expected wait, oh boy - was it worth waiting for! Just superb food, chunky chips and salad - so complimentary - and their own recipe sauce is just divine. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Will definitely be back and am raving to everyone I meet about the food. Their French coffees needs a bit more practise but after the best steak I have had in a while, I can forgive that!

“Great Food, Great Service! Love the place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Second time at Papa G's. First time was a fluke as me and my girlfriend just walked past sometime in November 2012. We were blown away by the food.

This time when we were thinking of somewhere to go for the weekend at the last minute, Papa G's made Mancester the easy choice.

Walked in an we were seated straight away and drinks orders were taken straight away and came quickly.

Ordered our main meal as the waiting staff were very attentive and full of personality.

We didn't have wine, but the waiting staff were watchful to make sure they were pouring refills of wine web glasses were low.

I had the mixed grill, which had chicken wings and ribs in Mary's sauce, a burger and a mixed kebab served with chips. Girlfriend had Mary's ribs. All cooked to perfection.

Can't wait to go back again.

“You won't be disappointed !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We planned a visit to Manchester city centre and decided to visit a Greek restaurant for lunch whilst we were there. I discovered Papa G's met our requirements and also found out that they only served fresh ingredients and that the restaurant already had some excellent reviews.
I was a bit apprehensive because the restaurant is in side the Printworks, however the restaurant was very easy to find and once inside you could easily be in any city centre restaurant.
The service as soon as we arrived was excellent. We hadn't booked but got a table straight away. I expect that you may need to book if visiting in the evening, as they were quite busy for a Saturday afternoon.
The venue is modern inside with a hint of Greek.
The menu also explains the history to the family owned restaurant, you'll need to visit to read how and why the family came to the Uk.
The choices on the menu are mainly traditional Greek foods plus there is a wide variety of pasta and pizza dishes. There is a wide selection of wines, even a couple of little known Greek wines to choose from!
We decided to go completely Greek with our meals and choice of wine. The food was excellent, lots of it, fresh ingredients and very god value for money. The wine was good. Our visit to the restaurant brought back memories of our recent holiday to the Greek Islands.
Throughout our visit the service was excellent.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the restaurant, even if you haven't tried Greek food I'm sure you would find something.

And yes of course"you won't be disappointed ".
