Fantastic food. We ordered the banquet and there was more than adequate food for everyone.
Beautiful food, and large serving sizes. Will definitely go again!
This is our new favourite local restaurant. Have been here 3 times in the past 3 weeks and are busy working our way through the fabulous menu. We have loved every dish so far. The duck pancakes and the red duck curry have been the stand out. We were devastated to hear that they were closing down but we breathed a sigh of relief to hear that it is temporary while they rebrand. Look forward to trying Papa's again when it reopens.
Honestly, I'd love to share some pictures of this beautiful restaurant and the food but to be honest, we were waited on like VIPs and the food was sooo good that we forgot to take pictures (twice).
The team are attentive and the food the kitchen produces is simply delicious. We love the flavours, which are nothing less than mouth watering. The laab salad is the best!!
Thanks for always delivering the best in the business experience.
The dishes are always really tasty here, compliments to the Chef, service is attentive & genuinely friendly without the annoying "how's yr food" part way through. Generous serves so make sure you're hungry, good value for money. Lychee mocktail a fave! cheers🍹
Food and drinks were absolutely delicious and staff were all super friendly and helpful
It was the worst food i have being served it was over cooked vegies limp and tasteless noodles overcooked overall terrible
Amazing food and atmosphere!! Lovely service from the staff. Very easy to split the bill for a large group, and accomodating to children. Will definitely be returning!!
Food was excellent although not very hot when it arrived after a lengthy wait. Service was exceptionally slow on both drinks & food.
Prompt service and food was good size portion and tasty.
We dined for my wife's birthday, 2 x adults, 2 x kids <12.
We sat outside, the setting was very nice, not too loud and pleasant music. Our host provided friendly, fast and efficient service.
The food came out quickly and the meals were very large, extremely tasty and well priced all considered.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Food was nice, service disappointing, but a nice atmosphere. Probs wouldn’t go back
The fried cauliflower was great. We never send back food to the kitchen but made an exception last night, we could not identify any bug meat on the bug bun. When we queried the waitstaff, we were informed that the bug meet was mixed in with the mayo and dill which was lightly smeared on the bottom of the roll. Still not being able to identify any bug we decided to cancel the order, the waitstaff then offered to have more bug meat added to the bun but we declined.
The pad see ew was ok, the beef was quite fatty and one of the pieces of 'meat' was literally just fat. The pad thai was good!
It was disappointing to say the least. Earlier that day a friend had told us that Sichuan Papa used to be really great when it first opened but had since changed hands and had gone downhill - I think they are correct.
The atmosphere and venue is quite nice, wasn't too loud.
Great food, great service and good value for money. Cocktails were awesome.
Food was fresh, tasty and innovative. Easy to book for a local restaurant. Will return
Needs more variety of food to choose from. Overall great vibe and food.
Delicious food to share with a table of friends. Interesting dishes
The service wasn’t great. Not sure if the staff were new or they were under staffed. We had to ask 3 times for my sons meal and it was tiny even for a kids meal! The duck curry was okay. Not much meat and a whole lot of sauce. The whole fish was delicious though. Not sure if I’d come back again. Even the drinks came out one at a time and we still had to ask for them aswell.
Food was delicious but service was a little ordinary. Would go again for the lovely food.
Great local restaurant, yummy food and great service
Took my daughter for her birthday (Family of 5). It turns out the restaurant is rebranding and has changed its menu completely to be “modern Asian” resembling nothing of the previous menu to which we were avid supporters of. Whilst disappointing at first, this was followed by further disappointment when we were told our first 2 selections were not available on the menu. Sigh…. But forgivable. Finally, my coeliac daughter left the restaurant sick after being told her honey soy chicken was gluten free…. Sad given this rest used to be the best “authentic” (western) Chinese on the north side. We wish them well on the new venture however we will not be returning.
Food was fairly bland and overpriced. Service was extremely slow and lacking in general.
Change from Sichuan Papa to just Papa which we weren't aware of as website still the same, not as many choices especially as we had a nut allergy amongst our party
This place has always been my go to in the area, but was really disappointed this time. Out of 7 offerings of wine by the bottle, they were out of stock on 3. The wine offerings were really ordinary for a place of this calibre. The hero dish Xiao Long Bao is usually amazing but this was a huge disappointment. Dry, overcooked with no broth. The San Choy Bow was actually chicken larb salad so totally misrepresented on the menu. Extra charges on the bill which weren't picked up by any of the staff. The new management have made a mess of this once lovely restaurant. Unlikely to return.
Meal took awhile to come out just 2 dishes, once seated took 20 min to have order taken. Meal was 8.5/10 and staff were friendly. Would eat there again.
Good food, reasonable prices and service was excellant
Food is high quality, been there a few times and never disappointed. From the entries to curries, mega yum, to stir fry its,all great, particularly the calamari
Good portions and staff were friendly and prompt. We like technology but ordering via a person rather than phone is better
We booked early but was placed inside, but in the middle of the door way and it was very draughty n cold. Very unpleasant. We were a party of 4. Rice served was cold n told to reheat it. The duck red curry which lychee looks nice but duck was tasteless.
The beef massaman curry was tendon but the beef slices were pre-boiled n tasted bland, with curry sauce stirred in. Pad Thai was fine, sticky pork belly was fine on sweet side. In fact all dishes were on sweet side. Expect lots of fillers of spuds in the main dishes. Starter of Moreton bay bugs were pricey $10 each n it was filled with Mayo, couldn’t taste bug. Calamari was the best starter here.
Overall dishes presented nice looking, but taste did not match looks, so overall- below average for dining experience.
Don’t even want to review them in case the secret gets out about how incredible their food is. It’s our favourite. SO DELICIOUS.
Good was epic however drink selection weren’t the greatest. Great service and friendly atmosphere
Service was very slow and the order mixed up. Baby Snapper for main was raw, they did take it off the bill. Just a bit disappointing.
Maybe more training with service staff at the end of the meal and clearing away of table in a timely manner. Otherwise very lovely staff
My husband and I got two entrees which were beyond amazing! However when we ordered our mains we were told that they were very large and so we ordered one to share. However we could have ordered one each and been very happy. Unfortunately we ordered the San Choy Bow and it was so super salty despite both being hungry we couldn’t finish it. The restaurant was lovely, the staff were very friendly and we would give it another try. But we won’t be ordering the San Choy Bow again.
Online menu makes ordering easy. Food was delish, we enjoyed the evening and will go back again.
The food is so delicious! The pork belly curry is to die for! Had a great night with friends eating great food and drinking yummy cocktails.
First time attending the restaurant with friends we were 100% happy with the service and food.
Deep fried fish was gorgeous. Duck pancakes were delicious, loved my Cosmo
Excellent service, he was able to run the restaurant with the skill of an experienced professional which makes the difference.
Disappointing experience. Such a great and convenient location overshadowed by poorly tasting food and inexperienced staff. To add to the evening one of the meals had a shard of plastic in it. Which was met with a shrug of the shoulders by the restaurant staff. Very disappointing.
Fantastic flavours, great service, good sized portions. We’ll be back
Duck pancakes came out cold.
Staff unsure what drinks they had carried over from the bar.
Staff brought over mains before entrees were finished or clearing the table to be able to fit the next meal on the table.
Staff unsure about dietary requirements on the menu then mention listed GFO weren’t able to be done.
Staff messed up the order.
Pad Thai was good. Very large portion with only three pieces of chicken.
