Came here for lunch today based on the excellent reviews. Service was friendly, fast and efficient. I quickly decided upon the chicken kabobs with saffron basmati rice and grilled vegetables. I did not try the hummus or baba ganoush today. I did however order a Moroccan coffee. It came out quickly and smelled of cinnamon and cardemom. I asked the... More

It's very small, but quaint. The owner was very nice, and service and food were pretty good. I wasn't the one paying, but, I thought it was a little pricey... but overall, ok.

First time visit to Cafe Paprika and I'm very glad we did. The food was really really good and the owner came by the table and talked with us about how it was all prepared. He really has a passion for making quality food. We had the Middle East Combination appetizer to start - it was excellent! I had the... More

I eat out a lot and love good food and this was potentially one of the best meals I have had. Great if you like lamb or are a vegetarian. Perfected umami at a reasonable price.

Wow, Fantastic! Little hard to find, tucked in corner of small strip mall. Met quickly by friendly owner as we sat ourselves. All the food is prepared fresh, using all Kosher ingredients. Started w a falafel and humus, never tasted better! Moved on to a chicken Bastille. I had never had one but it is now something I will crave.... More

Lunch here this past week, party of four. Two had been here; two of us had not. Free parking in lot shared with other businesses in a kind of shabby strip shopping center near a major highway in Aurora. Good lunch business appeared to be mostly regulars. Many options for vegetarians as well as meat eaters. One issue: no alcohol.... More

It's a small place with very friendly atmosphere, food is delicious and reasonably priced. Owner likes to talk to guests and remembers the regulars. Staff members are all friendly and try to help with your order, especially if you are not familiar with arabic food.
