Special memories

Nothing warms the heart like good old memories. For people, the mere mention of the name Paradise brings back happy memories of delightful meals enjoyed with friends and family. We have been around for over six decades now and that helped us serve authentic Hyderabadi cuisine to at least 3 generations. So, for some families, Paradise is inextricable from their web of memories.

Some guests reminisce about these memories eloquently. Recently, Ranjani Rajendra of The Hindu strolled down memory lane to write about her experiences of visiting Paradise as a teen and an adult. A trip to our newly opened Outlet at Perungudi, OMR after a 2-hour drive rekindled in her “memories of banter-filled family dinners”. She enjoyed the “taste of home”.

For Hyderabadis living in other cities, a visit to Paradise with friends is almost customary when they are in town. Of course, they do so for the delectable cuisine that we have been serving consistently. It is also an occasion to flip through the many special memories. All this makes us proud because creating such experiences was what our founders strived for and what inspires us even today.

Our presence in Bengaluru and Chennai gives us an opportunity to serve the “world’s favourite Biryani” to several new guests. In each city and at every Outlet, we are forever working on creating magical experiences that people will cherish for a long time. This is our focus: to help you go back with great food in your stomach and greater memories in your heart.


Great start in Chennai

A good beginning is a wonderful thing. It gives confidence that the best is yet to come. We have had yet another great start last week. Our launch in Chennai was greeted with enthusiastic response from the foodies of the city. The newspapers covered the launch and the news spread fast through word of mouth. We had lots of guests all through the week, and especially over the weekend.

The star of the menu that has got everyone talking was unsurprisingly the Biryani. Guests enjoyed it and there was much discussion on social media about how it is different from other Biryanis available in Chennai. People have been struck by the ample portions, tenderly cooked meat, and long-grained Basmati Rice. Paradise Biryani will surely become Chennai’s favourite.

In addition to the Biryani, guests enjoyed our Kebabs and Desserts. Again, guests loved the balanced flavour and rich texture of such marvels as Mutton Seekh Kebab and Paneer Tikka Kebab. Among Desserts, our Qubani-ka-Meeta was a big hit. We received some feedback from guests on cuisine and service. Our Chefs are working on it to delight you with the signature Paradise experience.

The Dine-in Restaurant was praised for its simple and bright décor. The service was top notch as always. People queued up at our Takeaway and we served thousands of orders every day. We felt the need to do better in terms of the speed and we are working in it. In all, it has been a great first week and we are prepared to win your hearts with good food and great service in the coming days. Come visit us!

Vanakkam Chennai

Namma Chennai, Nalla Chennai. That line probably captures best how intimately some people love this beautiful city.

1The aroma of filter coffee, the outsized love for movies, and its rich cultural heritage – Chennai has a unique charm that’s hard not to fall in love with. As the seat of power in South India under British rule, the city emerged as an economic, cultural and scientific hotspot.

Chennai offers excellent cuisine. It’s breakfast menu is incomparably rich with Idly-Sambar, Masala Dosa, Pongal and Vada being people’s favourites. To compete for attention with the city’s wonderful cuisine, one has to serve something that is just as unique and delicious. That brings us to the point. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the world’s favourite Biryani in Chennai?

2In fact, you can enjoy the finest Hyderabadi cuisine from the world famous Paradise in Chennai. Opened on 11th July 2016 on the Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR), our Outlet at Perungudi is close Tidel Park and Ascendas. The main highlight of course would be our Biryani which represents the high point of Hyderabadi cuisine.

3The Food Court will very soon also feature a Bakery where you can enjoy a delectable collection of cookies, pastries, Irani Chai and juices. Our Takeaway is best if you want to take a parcel home. The Restaurant can comfortably seat 130 people. We worked hard to ensure that we create delightful experiences every time you visit us. Our cuisine comes with the Paradise guarantee of purity and taste. Come experience it!

Fine weather, finest cuisine

What a relief! We’ve had good rains. The weather is perfect for a shopping or movie outing, and not to forget, for enjoying great food. As we wrote so many times on this blog, there is nothing like delicious food to lift your spirits and you should take every opportunity to savour the best cuisine this season. We have some recommendations for you. Read on.

We are not sure whether the current weather makes Haleem more tantalising or if Haleem makes the weather feel more pleasant, but we know for sure that it is irresistible. Now that we are in the last week of Ramadan with just a few days left to enjoy this sublime dish, go ahead, grab a bowl and lose yourself in its splendid taste. We are serving it all our Outlets in Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

At Paradise, you can also enjoy sizzling Kebabs hot off the coals. Made with the most tender meat, our Kebabs are soft, crunchy and delicious. Be it the famous Chicken Tikka or the scrumptious Mutton Sheek Kebab, you can never go wrong with these classic dishes made expertly by our Chefs. We also have several great vegetarian Kebabs that you will love.

Finally, there’s the all-weather favourite – the legendary Paradise Biryani. Rediscover the joy of a steaming hot bowl of Biryani that is pure, delicious and filling. If you would like to have some warm Desserts, try our Double-ka-Meeta which is one of the best ways to end an elaborate Hyderabadi meal. We look forward to seeing you at our Outlets.
