This was my first visit to Papa Chinos. I arrived with a friend for lunch, which is only open on a saturday at lunchtimes. We just turned up fairly early to see if they had a table, which fortunately they had. The proprietor gave us a great welcome, and served us with a drink, while we studied the menu. We... More

For main-course I enjoyed... More

Reviewing this restaurant as I eat there quite often. I tend to have the same dish as it is so lovely. I have the crayfish and smoked salmon linguine .. it is lush! The Tiramisu is also lush. The service is always good, even though the last time we went, there were Christmas parties going on, we weren't forgotten. Great... More

My sea bass main was great, cooked perfectly and the sea bass very good size as well. The spicy chicken tagliatelle was... More

Went in on a spur of the moment decision. The food was its usual high quality and fantastic. The staff were wonderful. They are always cheerful and helpful. The atmosphere was great. Not to noisy from other people eating and the background music was just right. This is by far the best restaurant in Northampton and we'll worth visiting. But... More

We went there to celebrate my birthday on Saturday night. We had a large booking of 24. Unfortunately a few people dropped out so only 18 made it to the restaurant. The staff were really helpful and friendly, they couldn't do enough for us. The food was fantastic. We went for the sharer menu which is described in full on... More
