Menu Highlights



King Platter

A true feast for a King! Contains eight varieties of our top tapas including Tilapia and Crispy Fried Prawns.

Chilli Lamb

Some like it hot. Another Papa Js creation that starts as a pot roast leg of lamb, then coated and tossed in a wok to finish, completely unique and will quickly earn its stripes as a favourite .

Paneer Tikka

Cubes of Paneer, marinated in a tangy sauce, skewered with green pepper, tomato, onion and finished in Tandoor.

Even though we'd booked at 7pm our table wasn't ready until 7.15! When we did sit down and ordering our drinks it took another 40 minutes for our popadoms to arrive and another 10 minutes for our drinks! We ordered several tapas dishes which were very good but very disappointed with a lack of meat in the lamb main dish. Not the normally good standard we've had at Papa J's before. It was my daughters 17th birthday as well so was a little disappointed to say the least.

Perfect as always! Best restaurant outside of London by a mile! The concept is brilliant and the quality of the food is second to none. I'd recommend the queen platter.
