    I suggest you don’t visit this restaurant hungry as you’ll have to wait 2 hours for your food.

    Food came 2 hours late and we were rushed off our table before we could finish eating. One of the staff became aggressive and verbally abusive towards myself and friend. Definitely will not be coming back.

    This was a really nice place to eat at. However I did not like the fact that we were reminded a few times that we were only allocated 2hours. It made us feel a bit rushed. The food and drink was lovely and I would recommend the restaurant to family and friends.

    Was good, been a few times now, but took a friend who was visiting for the first time, he found it a little choked up and noisy inside, so we asked to be seated outside, and they were kind enough to obliged, he was impressed with the Asun, food was flavourful and so filling couldn't touch my mains and had it packed. Weldone Femi and the crew.

    Initially when I read the previous reviews about how long the food took to come I was unsure what type of service I would get today. However we had a completely different experience. We ordered our food and it came with in 10 minutes. The staff were friendly and the venue was clean including the toilets which is a big deal for me! I will definitely be going back.

    Got here on time and we were seated straightaway, ordered our drinks and that came quick too and was real nice. Next, we had the chicken wings and Asun for starters and it was a good choice. Had the mains and was surprised by the large portions and we had to take the leftovers home. Overall it was a good evening and the atmosphere made it all the more pleasant. Will definitely be going back there.

    I came here before on the 5th of April 2022 the guy the table was booked for 4pm. The guy that served us was very welcoming made a few adjustments for us full of life. I came back a second time because of our experience with him and I have to say the lady in black was full of attitude got my order wrong wasn’t asking basic questions like are you finished just collecting. The drinks and the food we had the in the previous experience wasn’t the same. This is a place I wanted to book for my mums birthday but only because the lady I’m green redeemed everything we are grateful for her. The food took longer than the first time I’m guessing because there was alot of people. We kept on getting forgotten ordered a drink the lady in black passes us serval times the customer on another table had called her for me when she realised we ordered the drink over 25mins ago and did nothing about it but said “oh” not my apologies. I don’t think I’ll come and a weekend. I hope he next time is better if I do decide to come back but the lady in green and the guy are the only people that make the experience.

    The experience dining at Papi's Grill was beyond what I expected. The atmosphere was warm, the seating area was very clean, toilets were immaculate. The food was very right temperature and very tasty. Service was pleasant and quick. I will definitely be visiting again. This was my 2nd time but 1st visit was a takeaway. I was very delighted and satisfied with the portions and I left very happy.

    Restaurant has a nice bubbly ambiance. They play music which is good. Welcomed and seated by staff the space is decent not huge but they make use of it quite well it’s very neat and lovely decor they also have alfresco dining outside at the front which would be nice on a hot day. Service time quite prompt drinks are of good quality if you like cocktails or mock tails this is a local spot for you. The food portions are extremely generous and quality is superb there is no way you won’t be satisfied here.

    A hidden gem in the heart of New Cross. A great place to enjoy some quality west African food with friends or on a date night. I went with two of best friends and we had a very good evening. I was very pleasantly surprised with the size of the portions are generous and definitely worth the ££.
