We found Papas Fish Restaurant and Takeaway at 110 Sandgate Road.- How fortunate! The haddock and roe were exceptional as were the burgers and the chips. The milkshakes were generous and very tasty. The waitress was very friendly, helpful and efficient. It would be worth returning to Folkestone just to eat there again.

Good old British Fish and Chips in a straightforward, thoroughly pleasant restaurant, behind a thriving local take-away. Travelling down from London for business, I have been to Papa's half a dozen times and now always make a beeline. Top quality fish and chips, everything you would hope for, and the service is always really nice.

The fish and chips in this place are perfect! Often go here with my mum and daughter (age 4). We all eat fantastic food, served by really friendly waitresses and just about manage to roll out, all for under £25!! Love this place!

The nice thing about this meal was that it was freshly cooked and piping hot, as was the mug of tea. It did, however, take a long time to arrive. Also, the fish was unusually chewy for cod. The welcome and the table service was excellent.

Big portion sizes, tasty fish, well priced menu and an attentive waitress! The menu asked customers to be patient as the fish is cooked to order (visited the restaurant on a quiet Tuesday night) and our fish came relatively quickly (within 10 minutes).

Hubby, Dad and I went there for lunch this afternoon and, as usual, had a lovely meal. The staff are very kind and patient, as it takes a while to get Dad out of his wheelchair. We're not there too often, but we tend to go there if in Folkestone as it's very convenient and we always know that we... More

We had Haddock Chips Wallies Bread & Butter and a Cuppa Tea Just what the doctor ordered after a long walk. The food was excellent and the waitress looked after us really well. If we are ever in the area again we would certainly return to Papas

I was so pleased to find a decent fish and chip restaurant. The restaurant was lovely and clean, and quick friendly service. It looked like the food was cooked in the take away shop which was full with people wanting a take away. Always a good sign! We both had the Lemon sole. One fried and one grilled. They came... More
