I loved the schezuan squid, its amazing. The chicken was a bit salty and the pizza could have been a lit more crunchy but the flavors were good enough! Definitely worth it!

Great wee pub, drawing activities provided for our kids, I had the roast and my husband had the burger, both were great. Dessert options were limited as first choice not available but loved the lemon tart all the same. Stress free dining experience, super helpful and friendly staff.

Lovely waitress but forgot to take our food order after she said she’d give us 5 mins (even when we were the only ones there) and didn’t offer us any water through out.

We had a great time at The Paddington. The staff was superb and their service was spectacular. They made sure we were comfortable at the table and came to check on us during our visit. The food was delicious and so was the espresso martini! 11/10 would recommend!

Food was good and came out in a timely manner. But service is quite poor considering we were the only people in there at the time. Tables didn’t get cleared until we were served our deserts.

The food I ordered was good, my partner ordered pizza which doesnt taste good feels like they just put the chili sauce some additional meat and thats it. I would rate the pizza 1/10. The rest was ok.

We started off great - got waited on straight away and got some drinks. As soon as we got our food we stop seeing any staff, even though the place was pretty much empty. No one asked if we wanted any more drinks, no one asked if our food was okay and our empty plates never got cleared off the table. Such a shame as after a while one of the waitresses came over to the table next to us to take an order and she still didn't clear our table.

Food was good - can especially recommend the Beef Salad.

The service was poor to begin with and we had issues with a meal however the staff handled this exceptionally well and the replacement meal was good. I have been to The Paddington before and feel this may have been an unfortunate event so happy to return again and it is worth going!

Great place to spend a Sunny Sunday afternoon, we were immediately welcomed into the best seat in the house and looked after well. The coffee came quick and despite us both having allergies and preferences we were well looked after, will be back!

We went to the Paddington with great hopes and intentions. We had heard that this was a great pub and that the food was good. However for us I think that the chef was having a really bad day. All the food was overcooked and burnt. The Pork Roast Dinner had burnt black Yorkshire Puddings, and the vegetables were not fresh that day. The Buttermilk Chicken was simply cooked too long, burnt and dry. Overall a shame.

At the end of the meal we were asked how we liked the meal and we simply said the meals were burnt and we were disappointed. We were not rude. We just accepted it. The Waitress was lovely.

We went to pay for our meal and the Manager apologised for the meals and removed these items from the final bill. We did not ask for this. It was the Managers decision. The Manager was interested in maintaining the quality of their food offering and asked us to come back another time for a better dining experience.

We will try again at another time. We chalk this up to experience but will give it another go.

Dined at the Paddingtinon Saturday night, 3 Nov, before our Adam Smith concert. The location was perfect, as we could leave our car in the parking next to the restaurant and walk to the Spark Arena. 15 minute brisk walk. The food at the Paddington was delicious. The ribs and crispy chicken were tasty and full of flavour. The service was excellent. Couldn’t fault anything. We’ll be back.

Had a really nice dinner and overall evening at The Paddington last night in Parnell. Staff were attentive and efficient, and the food was very enjoyable.Even without the discount the pricing was very reasonable. This was our second experience with First Table and we will definitely be back to this establishment =)

Great food, lovely atmosphere and good service! The ribs were to die for...proper hot wings ..delicious and well cooked. The service was good but staff walked around a lot not tending to my table though..a bit strange. Overall I would go back again in future for a good catch up with hearty meals!

We decided to come here for a family lunch and because the game between Argentina and New Zealand was on, the place was packed. We were however taken into a private room, which was a lot more convenient and quiet. We ordered our meals and waited around 25-30 minutes, which was alright seeing as we had ordered quite a lot. The food was hot, fresh and packed full of flavour. The roasted vegetable salad was delicious paired with the grilled halloumi and crispy chicken, and the lamb shanks with mash were tender and flavourful. The servings of all our meals were huge, which was excellent as it matched the price well. Service was friendly, helpful and patient, seeing as it was a full house. Would definitely recommend and come again.

I had a very nice time at The Paddington with my family. The vietnamese beef salad and roast vegetable salad with crispy chicken was perfect to my liking; the goat cheese pizza and crispy squid had a bit too much flavour and seasoning but nonetheless was enjoyable; the braised lamb was by far the favourite! So tender and full of flavour, went well with the mash. Guinness and Hoegaarden was perfectly poured. I was very impressed with the selection of tap beers available. Would definitely come back!
