Celebrating a year of happiness: Goodbye 2016!

It is hard to believe that the year is coming to an end! When we all embarked on the year 2016 in January with all our plans and dreams, December and the end of the year seemed far, far away. But we are almost there now – the excitement for welcoming the New Year is accompanied by myriad emotions for the year that is ending.

Now is the right time to look back and appreciate all that you achieved and helped others achieve, remember the lessons learned, and the love you got. If you want to dwell a little longer, do dwell on what you have and what you can give, not on what you don’t. We are joining you and looking back at what 2016 did for us. Thanks to your continued love, it was a great year for Paradise:

  1. We opened new Outlets in Hyderabad, Vizag, Chennai and Bengaluru. Your love and appreciation ensured that these launches were greeted with an overwhelming response. The lines in front of these Food Courts bear testimony to our success even today. On that note, we promise you that we are implementing several procedures to cut down waiting times across all out Restaurants. There should be no waiting for good food.
  2. We partnered with Swiggy, Food Panda,Food Mingo and Zomato  to bring Paradise cuisine to your doorstep so you would never have to go hungry. We were happy and humbled at the same time to see how much this was appreciated – especially by Haleem lovers during the holy Ramadan Season.
  3. We celebrated the Hot n Juicy Kebab Festival at our Outlets in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. The festival was a smashing and lip-smacking success as people enjoyed over 30 new Kebab varieties from all across the country .
  4. We invited you to join our breakfast club when we introduced the weekend breakfast at some of our Bengaluru and Hyderabad Restaurants. It took off well and so did the weekends for our guests!
  5. We added a touch of customisation and diversification to take the Paradise cuisine to more people: we introduced new Combos like the Nawabi Meal Combo, the Student Value Meal, Half plate Kebabs and the Single Biryani. All of them have been received well, as if our guests have been waiting for them all along.
  6. We received the Best Restaurant of the Year Award from the Restaurant Awards 2016 from Chef Extraordinaire Sanjeev Kapoor.

We are very happy with all we experienced and achieved this year, and we want to share our happiness and extend our gratitude to you. For it was you, who made our 2016 a happy year. We wish you a very Happy New Year. Have a great 2017!

Christmas – the season’s best reason

It is that time of the year when there is a nip in the air, and for a change, the sun feels just right on your back. Lit stars adorn many a house front and sounds of carols sing warm the cold night air. There is warmth all around; our body and soul too can do with some warmth within. An all-season favourite, Paradise cuisine is here to get the Christmas festivities off to a good start and to rekindle the warmth in our hearts.

IMG_3206When we think of celebration, the first two things that come to mind are food and decoration. Christmas is the last big festival of the year, so take advantage of the season, reclaim your time, enjoy delicious food and strengthen your zest for life. Add Christmas cheer to your tea and conversations with our range of Biscuits and Plum Cakes: each bite of this cashew-adorned cake is rich not just in fruit and flavour but also texture.

Christmas is also the season’s best reason to re-unite with friends and family, to have get-togethers and bond over elaborate meals. Let Paradise delight you with our Special Supreme Chicken and Mutton Biryani. These two Biryanis are great for sharing and savouring together. A special meal for the special people in your life would be incomplete without a round of hot Gulab Jamuns and the season’s favourite Gajar ka Halwa.

chocolate-bisuit_3118Christmas signals the upcoming holiday season—the time of the year when we connect with loved ones, look back on the current year, and count our blessings. It is also the time to indulge in the pleasures of life – relaxing over a delicious meal, sipping that second cup of Irani Chai, looking at the family album, sharing stories, sharing memories—making memories. Come to Paradise for a special Christmas meal with your loved ones and complement the chill in the air with a variety of hot Biryanis and scrumptious, smoking kebabs that go down just right with everyone!

Traditionally yours!

In India, tradition is a part of everyone’s life. Be it the rituals and ceremonies or the way in which social customs and practices are preserved and passed on from generation to generation. The Paradise experience is no different. The Biryani here has been a household name for over half a century now. The youth of 1953 may now be the grandparent of 2016 but the taste of Paradise remains the same – to everyone’s delight.

If you walk into Paradise Outlets on a Saturday evening, you will notice two things at once: mostly delighted families seated at the different tables and the air rich with the aroma of Biryani. The sight makes you wish you were also eating dinner with your family. In fact, there are some families that have been visiting Paradise and enjoying the authentic Hyderabadi fare from three generations now.

Sometimes they all visit together and to the onlookers the place truly feels like Paradise: grandparents who may not recognise the surroundings much but who know the food as well as they know each other; parents who have been witness to the transformation of Paradise as much as Paradise has been a witness to theirs; children who love the food, the ambience, and of course, the Falooda!

They all appreciate Paradise for changing and keeping up with the times much like their own lives and lifestyles. But they love Paradise for not changing when it comes to the taste and quality of the fare, and the warm service. Paradise has always been family-friendly and we do everything to ensure that they enjoy good times. And this is why Paradise is everyone’s choice.

For isn’t Paradise the place where they celebrated little Aman’s first words? When the twins Sameer and Saima, both got into a college of their choice, didn’t Ammi insist that everyone go to Paradise to celebrate? And let’s not forget Vamsi’s first job promotion, this is where he treated his new wife. Countless marriage anniversaries, birthdays, engagements have been celebrated in our Restaurants over the decades.

The Paradise family has been privileged to be a part of your family’s cherished memories and hopes to be a part of many more. And what memories, what good times!

Chai and biscuits, Hyderabadi style

3O6B0055To experience a city completely, you have to experience its food, partake of its local snacks and the local cuisine. When people think of their experience of Hyderabad, the famed Biryani is not the only food that comes to mind. They think of Irani Chai, Osmania, Khara and Fruit biscuits too. Why not? Chai and conversation is an integral part of India’s culture.

Therefore, if you have been out and about the city and become hungry, especially between meals, there is nothing as refreshing and comforting as a hot cup of Irani chai, a plate of freshly baked Khara biscuits and quality conversation. Don’t be surprised if you polish off the entire plate on your own and share in only the conversation! These cookies are crispy, soft and irresistible.

img_3235At our Bakery in the Secunderabad Outlet, we also serve Plum Cakes, Pastries and Puffs. You will not have to wait for Christmas to relish the rich and sweet Plum Cakes we bake in-house. You can choose from pastries in different flavours and also have your pick of vegetarian and non-vegetarian Puffs.If you have a celebration planned, a birthday treat or a team celebration at work, you can get all the Pastries, Puffs and Samosas you want to make it a celebration to remember.

img_3195If you can’t have enough of this all, worry not. Our biscuits also come in neatly packed boxes that you can take home. These also make great gifts for those friends and colleagues who miss these and miss Hyderabad. What’s more? These are available at all our Outlets. So just visit our Bakeries and order a cup of Irani Chai and those melt-in-the-mouth Khara biscuits to start with. Then you can proceed to the Puffs or is it a Pastry that you are suddenly craving?!

Paradise Whitefield off to a great start

sai_9595When you study the history of mankind, you learn that early man travelled to different places for food, protection, and shelter. Man’s quest for food and better shelter took him all over the earth and resulted in the birth and growth of different civilizations. Today, though we live in civilised society, people still travel for food, but what if food has travelled for you?

In matters of the heart, distance does make the heart grow fonder. But in matters of the stomach, why should distance deprive you of the joy of having flavourful Biryani? So, earlier if you lived in Whitefield, Bengaluru, you had to travel some distance to visit Paradise and enjoy our delectable Biryani and Kebabs. The good news is that you don’t have to anymore. Paradise has come right next door to you.

sai_9614When we opened our Whitefield outlet at Virginia Mall last week, we were overjoyed by your response. We can’t thank you enough for making the opening a big success. The last weekend saw thousands of guests enjoy the world’s favourite Biryani at our newest Food Court. With responsive service and convenient facilities, we have tried to make your visit to Paradise as friendly as possible.

At our Whitefield outlet, you can choose from a variety of Biryanis and Kebabs. If you are looking for an authentic Hyderabadi meal sans the Biryani, look no further than our wide-ranging selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian Curries that go perfectly well with our Rotis and Naans. And don’t forget to sweeten your experience by having our Desserts, Qubani-ka-Meetha or Double-ka-Meeta.

Demonetisation Update: Go cashless and pay with your credit/debit card at our Outlets. We accept all credit and debit cards (Visa and Master only).

A new address in Bengaluru

There are 5 Paradise Food Courts in Bengaluru today. That’s surprising given that our first Food Court in Bengaluru opened only in January 2015. In just a year and half, we grew from one Outlet to six Outlets and that’s no mean feat. During the same time, we opened only 3 new Outlets in Hyderabad. That goes to show the demand for authentic Hyderabadi cuisine in Bengaluru in general and love for Paradise food in particular.

after-opening1Yet, visit any Food Court on any day of the week, you will see it packed to the rafters. More Outlets were long overdue. We are therefore happy to announce the opening of our newest Outlet in the centre of the Geekdom that is Whitefield (Virginia Mall). In addition to Big Data, we hope the discussions will soon turn to the Big Biryani we serve. We chose the location based on long deliberations and after receiving a lot of requests from guests. The Food Court also houses a Takeaway and we will offer home delivery via our partners: Swiggy,Zomato and Food Panda.

Whitefield is an exciting place. Although it could be said about many places in Bengaluru, Whitefield is predominantly known for the presence of IT multinationals that employ thousands of employees. We believe this Outlet will help us serve the finest Hyderabadi food to people from around the country. We are drawing on our experience in setting up several Food Courts last year to deliver the signature Paradise experience from Day one.

We invite to you visit our Paradise Food Court in Virginia Mall and enjoy cuisine that made us one of Garden City’s most popular family restaurants. Experience the world’s favourite Biryani, exquisite selection of Kebabs, and a delectable line up of Curries and Desserts. Our service is cordial and responsive, while the ambience sets the right tone for a relaxed meal.  Open 11 AM to 11 PM.

Hyderabadi cuisine gets another home

Paradise is growing. Over the last couple of years, we have grown our presence in Bengaluru, Chennai and Vizag. Nowhere has our growth been as rapid as it was in the Garden City. At 5 Food Courts, Hyderabadi cuisine got a new home in Bengaluru. From the start, Bengalureans have shown their love for Hyderabadi khaana (and Paradise food in particular) and our Restaurants have become instantly popular.

mailer-003At Paradise, we could not be happier. Our passion has always been to serve pure and high-quality cuisine to more and more people. We want everyone to share in the joy that comes from eating the world’s favourite Biryani! To reciprocate the love Bengalureans have shown us and to encourage more people to try our cuisine—we came up with several Special Combos and promotions over the last month exclusively for Bengaluru.

Every one of them has been a smash hit. Guests unanimously loved the Nawabi Meal Combo that helps them eat like a Nawab without having to pay like one. Students loved the Student Value Meal that’s light on their pocket. Very different from a fast-food joint, all these Combos are designed as a multi-course meal with Kebabs, Curries, Rotis and Desserts – the Biryani is a bonus.

The recently launched Single Biryani and Half Plate Kebabs are designed to make it convenient for people to try our cuisine in the right portions. As always, our focus has been on keeping Paradise cuisine affordable without compromising on quality. We are calling these the come-back-again and again prices and they have been well-received. Come and enjoy these Special Combos to enjoy delectable Hyderabadi cuisine.
