“Food can not be beaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We have been to this Greek restaurant many times and each time the food has been scrumptious and device excellent. The lamb souvlaki is to dye for, it's just like being back on Greece! Highly recommend.

“Good home cooking and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Had my first meal at Papa G's last night and it was excellent. The stifado was soft, and to die for and my partner had the Kleftico which was his first experience of this and he really enjoyed it. Lovely ambience (despite the early eating time 5.30) and Vas was the perfect host and most welcoming. Would definitely eat there again, especially as the other eateries around are probably pre-packaged and prepared food, where Papa G is fresh, and well prepared. Try it you won't be sorry.

“Great Greek restaurant...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We arrived at this Restaurant at 9oclock on a Tuesday night and the Maitre D said we could dine which we were over the moon with...

We were delighted that we were given a quiet booth..

We were greeted by a very intentive young lady who was quick to give us the specials and she also did our drink order..

We decided on the Hallomi cheese in the Sesame seeds and the Marys spare ribs to start.. My Cheese was great and the salsa on the side was fantastic..And my other halfs Ribs were amazing and the meat litterly came off the bone and the sauce was very tasty..

When the mains came out what can we say... The Beef Stifdo was placed on a flat plate which felt a little funny but ohhh my billy goat when we tasted the beef it was soft-succelect-moist infact amazing and the rice that was with it really did go well with it... We also had the Lamb Souvlaki and yes this meat also a very good cut of meat and the home made dips that went with it was fantastic too..

We polised them both off..... We had a two rounds of drinks also with this meal and it came to £57.85.00 which i though it was very good as the qwuality of food was amazing and the serive was spot on... No faults at all....

The Manager was great with checking on us and told us not too rush our food as it was getting upto 10pm....

In all a great find you could go as a family a group of friends or even for couples

“Nice staff, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I took my sister and nephew for something to eat before a concert and the service was prompt and the staff were very professional and helpful. We had halloumi for starter and unfortunately it was cold in the centre which made it quite difficult to eat. The main was lovely calazone, and desert (crepes) were nice although not convinced that they were freshly made. Would go there again for a casual tea.

“Some people go a lifetime without finding a restaurant this good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

When you are overly picky and a total pain when it comes to food, like i am, its always hard to find a restaurant that is good enough to visit regularly. Finding a place where you dont have to return your main meal back at least once has become such a hard thing to do.However I have found one.
Papa Gs have done something rather extraordinary, with a young team of staff including the chefs - you can tell they are excited and very enthusiastic about what they do. This is a rare thing to find and it shows in there food and quality of service.
If i was in the area all the time i would eat there daily, but sadly im not.
i would recommend the rib-eye... and the crepes and the cheesecake and the burgers.. well to be honest, most of the menu items.
