Wow. Hands down the best hummus I've had in the States. The harrira soup tasted straight out of Rabat. The lamb shank tagine absolutely melted in my mouth. The owner was a very nice gentleman, too. Gave me a sample of their amazing house

Great food. Small and intimate. Excellent service. The combination appetizer plate was delicious and lamb shank so tender that the meat just about fell off the bone. Definitely going back.

This was amazing! The chicken, shrimp and kefta kabob was delicious along with the gyro and chicken sandwich. We all loved our dinner. Service was polite and friendly. There is no doubt that I will return to this fantastic restaurant.

Great find. Have made several trips to the middle east and miss the food. This place is as close as I can find in town. Shawarma was juicy and spiced perfectly. Lamb shank was fall apart.

I have been eating at Cafe Paprika for 15 years, and STILL drive to the almost-ghetto once a month for this food! Another strip-mall family gem that more people should know about! No other Mediterranean restaurant can even TOUCH this place.

Cafe Paprika catered a work luncheon and did a wonderful job! The food was delicious and there was something for everyone. I especially enjoyed the Chicken Bastilla-just fantastic! I hope to visit their location soon and look forward to

I was surprised to find such high quality food in this little restaurant, tucked away in an Aurora strip mall.

I had many falafels in my time, but nothing came close to those served in Cafe Paprika. They are green on the inside (probably due to use of parsley, cilantro, and dill - some of the ingredients the owner was kind enough to share with me), taste incredibly fresh, and totally lack any taste or scent of grease you typically find elsewhere. Just outstanding! The accompanying humus and baba ganoush are also outstanding. I particularly appreciated the baba ganoush, which normally I don't eat because I don't like eggplant. This one, however, has a very subtle and smoky eggplant taste, surrounded with a lot of humus and tahini, which makes for a special taste.

I also liked their Hariri (or Harira) soup, which is a vegie soup with garbanzo beans, tomatoes, and some other beans, I think, and it is just full of flavor and tastes fresh.

I am not much of a meet eater, but on my first visit (I've eaten there twice), I was with a group of carnivors, which seem to enjoy their meat very much.

Lot's of other interesting stuff on the menu which I haven't samples yet

Yes, the portions are very generous, as you expect from a middle eastern restaurant.

The restaurant seems clean, and the decor is pleasant. I warmly recommend this nice restaurant to any fan middle eastern food.

Pros: Hearty, high quality Morocan food

This family owned restaurant produces delicious and affordable food that is served in a pleasant and clean dining area. I had the best hummous here. I also like the Salad Maison which is a sampler of Moroccon style salads including roasted eggplant, cucumber and tomato salad, marinated carrots and red beet salad. ??

We went to Cafe Paprika with a friend from work. His family owns it and so we were able to try things that I think we normally might not have. It was so delicious!

I lived in Morocco for 3 years and the food was incredible. I spent hours in my kitchen trying to re-create my favorite dishes until I discovered this restuarant. The Bastilla, Salad Maison, and the Tagine's are wonderful. The kabobs are delicious too. I also like the other Middle Eastern fare such as the Gyros, Hummos, and Baba Ganouj but my favorites are by far the tajines. They have one with meatballs, tomatoes, and eggs that sounds like it would be an odd combination but trust me, it's delicious. Eat it with the warm pita bread and you won't be dissapointed. I always bring family and friends here and they are always impressed. This is a family owned and run place and the proprieters are delightful. You always see natives eating here or getting take out so it must be good! This is probably my favorite restaurant ever!

I am a latina and i have never tasted this type of food and when I tried the chicken kabobs with the rice and pita bread their special salad dressing it is awsome it taste natural is not greasy and fullfilling! I have tooken a couple of my friends also and they love it too! I always sit on the same table and order the same thing because it is that good! The service is great the setting is great and you eat as peacefully as if you were at your own home! The manager is very nice and I am even suprised that he even goes out to your table says "Hi" and makes you feel even better to be eating at his restaurant! SO, if one day your sitting there thinking I want something to eat, something different but what? this is the place really! CHicken Kabobs awsome!

I had lunch here and I have to say that the service was par but the food was fabulous. If you can deal with not being waited on hand and foot and you enjoy Mediterranean food then this is the place for you.
