The show goes on!

Among other things, more often than not, weekends or an evening out in Hyderabad involve one or both of the two—eating out and catching the latest movie. Both provide much-needed respite from the humdrum routine of daily life and offer a momentary peek into a different world. Movies do that by creating a visual narrative that captures your imagination. And eating out does that by creating a world where taste buds are treated to something more luxurious than the usual fare at home.

What if we could combine Hyderabad’s two passions? Well, our NTR Gardens Food Court located right next to Prasads IMAX is re-opening after a long renovation job. What better way there is, to celebrate time away from work than by catching a movie at Prasads and dropping in right next door for a mouth-watering Biryani?

This is a very special location as it is connected to some of the city’s greatest landmarks: NTR Gardens, Hussain Sagar Lake and Lumbini Park. These places have been on every tourist’s list of must-see places in Hyderabad. They can now enjoy the landmark Hyderabadi dish right here without having to worry about driving down or booking a cab to someplace else. With this renovation, we managed to improve on the grand interiors that our old Outlet was known for.

If you want to relish your Biryani first before catching the latest movie in town, you could do that conveniently at the Paradise NTR Gardens Outlet, which is open seven days a week from 11 am to 11 pm. For our second innings at this location, we have added a well-stocked Bakery alongwith an Irani chai counter as well as a Takeaway. Special callout to the tourists, lack of time will not deprive you of the joy of Paradise Biryani! Walk into our NTR Gardens Outlet and discover the incomparable magic of Hyderabadi cuisine.

Great start for Paradise at Uppal

Last month, we opened our 10th Outlet in Hyderabad at Boduppal. We were confident that this Outlet would be welcomed by many. The area was missing a place for people to come together and enjoy a great meal. So, we thought we should do what we do best—open a Food Court complete with a Dine-in Restaurant, Bakery and Takeaway. And you’ve proven us right by visiting this Outlet in huge numbers and giving us the opportunity to serve the best of Hyderabadi cuisine to you.

From the day it started, our Uppal Food Court has become very popular with families, especially over the weekends. Be it the children or the parents or even visiting relatives, there’s something for everyone! Guests can order their favourite Biryani and Haleem—the season’s special delicacy. They can also pick from our North Indian or Chinese specialties. Whatever the mood, whatever the time of day, families who visit us will have a wonderful meal and a great time.

The place has also become a popular haunt for students, as it gives them a place to hang out after finishing classes. It is also turning into their place of choice for celebrating birthdays—the friends of the birthday boys and girls being happy to feast on the world’s favourite Biryani! The Restaurant is quite spacious and the service has been top notch. Our best Chefs are working on making sure that the cuisine is impeccable.

We are also happy to note that the Takeaway has been busy. Those travelling to and from Hyderabad, especially those driving down to Warangal, are making a quick stop to pick up their favourite Biryani and Kebabs to loved ones back home. That’s the story so far. Thank you for giving us such a great start at Uppal. If you have not dropped by yet, do visit us soon!

Paradise in Uppal

Finally, we opened our 10th Outlet in the bustling neighbourhood of Uppal. The choice has been pretty easy. With many schools, engineering colleges and residential localities around, Uppal seemed the right place for our milestone Outlet. Many people make a long commute to work from this area. With this Outlet, they do not have to do the same on weekends to enjoy legendary Paradise cuisine. Located Opp. Bantia Furniture, our new Outlet is easy to spot.

In an area that is constantly abuzz with activity, our Restaurant offers a quiet space to enjoy a relaxed meal with family and friends. We are bringing the best of our cuisine—Biryani, Kebabs, Curries and Desserts—to this Outlet. Attentive service, valet parking and clean interiors make it convenient and comfortable for our guests to visit this Outlet frequently. The Takeaway on the Ground Floor comes to your rescue on those days when you are too tired to cook.

Whether you are out to watch cricket at the Uppal Stadium or catch a flick at a nearby multiplex, our Food Court will satisfy your Biryani cravings. Students can enjoy asli Hyderabadi khana with friends after a long day of classes. If you are heading out to Warangal or nearby towns, you can take delicious Paradise cuisine to friends and loved ones in convenient Combo packs. The Bakery on the Ground Floor serves our famous Irani Chai that instantly livens you up.

Every Paradise Outlet is a landmark and we understand that you will have high expectations from us. We promise to do our best to delight you on every visit with great cuisine and warm hospitality. Make this Outlet your go-to place for all celebrations and get-togethers. If you can’t get out of home for any reason, order your favourite cuisine from Swiggy, Food Panda  or Zomato to have it delivered to your door. Do visit our new Food Court soon!

Apna Haleem

There are certain experiences that can’t be had alone. There are certain experiences that can’t be had whenever we want. One of them is the bliss of sharing a bowl of Haleem with family and friends during the holy month of Ramadan every year. Several foodies look forward to the Ramadan month to enjoy Haleem in the evenings. The fact that it is available only for a limited time probably adds to the enthusiasm.

If you haven’t tried this delectable stew made of grains and meat yet, this is your chance! Experience the divine taste of Haleem, which is made only during Ramadan. We are getting ready to launch our Haleem Festival on May 22 at our Outlets in Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Visakhapatnam. After a day’s fasting, eating a bowl of Haleem provides nourishment and energy; it brings everyone together; we share the food, the joy and the experience, thereby celebrating the spirit of Ramadan.

Our Haleem is prepared using authentic processes, in hygienic conditions with quality ingredients. We use fresh and tender meat, high-quality wheat, and premium ingredients like pure ghee and cashew nuts. Patiently and lovingly, our chefs prepare this delicious stew of meat and wheat, stirring it for hours on end, pounding it till it reaches that perfect texture and thick consistency. They then garnish it with pure ghee and fried onions.

Our Haleem will become your favourite as quickly as each rich and creamy spoonful slides down your throat. In fact, Paradise Haleem has won the “Best Haleem in Town” award in the past from The Times of India. Come soon and get your bowl of goodness and nourishment and experience bliss with each spoonful. We hope our Haleem makes your Ramadan special!

So corporate Hyderabad, take your tray and keep hunger away! You can also order the same through our Delivery partners – Swiggy,Zomato and Foodpanda.

Paradise everywhere!

We believe in relationships. We believe in choices, not diktats. We believe that a meal is important because it gives you nourishment and energy, and sometimes, even relief. For a meal is an experience, it is not a chore. This is why we believe in getting our food and service right—every single time. When people talk about Hyderabad, they always recommend Paradise Biryani. In a way, our identity is tied to Hyderabad. You know why?

Because Hyderabad is where it all began. Biryani—the jewel in the crown of Hyderabadi cuisine—has been our specialty. For a long time, there was just one Paradise, the Dine-in Restaurant in a place called Paradise—yes, named after the Restaurant. Today, thanks to your love, we have 18 Outlets, not only in Hyderabad but also in Bengaluru, Chennai and Vizag. These Outlets did not mushroom overnight, borne out of a random impulse. Each of them has been meticulously planned.

We do not follow the franchising model. All Paradise Outlets are our own and we operate them ourselves. We have been very cautious in our expansion because our goal has always been to provide the signature Paradise experience to our guests consistently. We receive innumerable requests to open new Restaurants, but we will only do so when we are absolutely sure that we got everything right at our 18 existing Outlets. Philosophically, that’s the only constraint on our growth.

We are not a quick service restaurant. We want you to relax and enjoy your meals when you visit us. Yes, we do believe in providing prompt and efficient service, but once we serve you your meal, we want you to savour each bite and relish the flavours and textures. Come, see us in action and enjoy the Paradise experience at our Outlets in Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Vizag. We are opening soon in New Delhi, Gurgaon, Pune, Kolkata, Vijayawada, Guntur and Warangal.

Drink up and beat the heat!

Summer is here and it is here to stay, with its scorching sun and soaring temperatures. But they don’t have to be only about the heat. Instead of “It’s so hot!” we want to say and hear “It’s so cool!” That is why, we are here to help you cool off with our diverse, colourful, cooling, and delicious array of summer drinks! From a popular Paradise offering, the Falooda in its three variants, to the quintessentially Punjabi Lassi, and the always in demand fresh, nutritious fruit juices, our Paradise Outlets have it all, to make the summer a cool experience for you.

When the mercury is rising, when the heat plays havoc with our systems and with our heads, it is easy to lose one’s cool! Well, we at Paradise don’t want you to lose your cool. In fact, we want you to stay cool! This summer, sip on our sweet and soothing summer drinks! Their delicious and sweet taste will delight you, and their inherent cooling properties will keep you refreshed all day through!

So, if you want to cool your body down and soothe your parched throat, walk in to your nearest Paradise Food Court. We have just the thing, rather things, for you: Faloodas, Lassis, and fruit juices! Can one truly think of summer without thinking of kulfis? We bring to you our Shahi Kulfi Falooda and our Royal Kulfi Falooda, the delicious combination of the classic Indian frozen dessert with Paradise’s much loved Falooda. Or you could have the Bombay Special Falooda – it’s a Bombay Special, need we say more?

And can one ever imagine an Indian summer without that king of fruits, the mango? The Mango Lassi made with the sweetest mango pulp and thick creamy yoghurt, is like no other flavoured Lassi. Our Lassis also include the classic sweet Lassi topped with thick cream, and the classic Salted Lassi. The lassi will not only help you beat the heat, it will refresh you and reenergise you with every sip you take.

When one is out in this heat for even five minutes, it feels as if a giant vacuum cleaner has sucked out every last drop of moisture from our bodies. We feel sapped and each time we step out, we face the very real risk of dehydration. To keep you hydrated and nourished, we also have fresh fruit juices – Grape, Orange, Mosambi, Apple, and Pineapple. They are packed with vitamins and minerals, and natural sugars that keep you healthy and give you instant energy. So, let’s stay hydrated and energised and drink up to beat this heat.
