Is there anywhere in Paphos or Cyprus I can get these? For instance Black Beans, Dried Prawns etc.

I think you mean Ruposhi Bangla which is more Indian/Bangladeshi. However, worth a look.
Another place is in the very small arcade diagonaly opposite the police station in paphos town (behnd the street cafe). It caters for the Philipina/Sri Lankan community, but again worth a look.

Both have nice people who are very helpful.

Is this the one opposite Ben's Bar on TOKR? If so it was definitely more Indian than Chinese last time I was in there. Don't know of one with a Chinese lady in. Will take a look at the one in town when I am mobile again.

She is called Agnes, is from Malaysia, and owns the place. Otherwise you might see Bip who is a young lad from Bangladesh. Both good people with lots of advice.
