Been a while since I'd been to Paprika and decided to go there on spur of the moment on Saturday night. Very warm welcome, quickly seated and orders taken. Great food, excellent service and good value for money. I just wish it got a little bit busier, as it really deserves to be, every time I go there it's excellent.

Thank UKGeordie

This is a very nice curry house, I go about once a month and they do take out too. this is one of my favourite places for a curry because it's close and the price isn't to bad.

I bobbed in for a chicken madras. The food was cooked beautifully and the staff were very attentive. Price was reasonable for the quality of food. I will go again.

My partner and I wanted to try this restaurant as it was good for the reviews, we were not disappointed and we shall return again if we are up that way. Down side was hard to get parked and had to go in the street behind which was pretty packed to. Double yellow lines right outside, do not let this... More

I had been going to another curry house for 10 years before trying Paprika. Since then, I've never looked back. The food, the staff and the prices are fantastic. As people have mentioned, it hard to understand why there are only two or three tables occupied everytime I go in. I can only assume it's due the location as everything... More

My husband and I visited Paprika for the first time for a Saturday evening meal. We were surprised to find the restaurant almost empty and hoped it wasn't a reflection of the food. We needn't have worried as the food was fabulous and the staff were attentive, helpful but not intrusive. Paprika is a small family run restaurant.. Our waiter... More

This restaurant is a ten minute walk from our house so we thought we'd actually eat out on Friday because it wasn't raining. Paprika is run by a charming Bangladeshi man, but the food is Indian, and very good. We eschewed the usual poppadoms and went for roti and a garlic naan, rice, Bombay aloo, dahl, beef vindaloo, prawn masala... More
