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!

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.

Kebabs win hearts

Galouti kebabIf you have been to any of our Outlets in Hyderabad or Bengaluru during the last fortnight, you would have noticed that the star of our menu at the moment is not the Biryani, but Kebabs. Rightly so, what an excellent selection our Chefs have selected for the Hot N Juicy Kebab Festival. They searched kitchens across India to bring our guests the finest Kebabs from across regions.

6 ways to Paradise – Bengaluru edition

indiranagarUntil a couple of years ago, Bengaluru had relatively fewer options when it came to Hyderabadi cuisine. This was surprising given the Garden City’s vibrant culinary scene. All that changed with the arrival of Paradise Food Courts – the leading chain of Restaurants/Takeaways serving the finest Hyderabadi cuisine. Today, we have six outlets spread across the city.

frazer townFrom the time we opened our first Outlet in Indiranagar, we have been received enthusiastically by the foodies of Bengaluru. The response encouraged us to expand swiftly and in the last six months alone, we opened 3 new Outlets – the latest being our Electronics City Restaurant. Our Restaurants are packed to capacity on all days of the week – a testament to how much guests love us.

jp nagarAs the expansion continued apace, we did not lose sight of our single most important goal: serving the world’s favourite Biryani and delectable Hyderabadi cuisine to guests consistently. After a few minor fumbles initially, our Chefs hit the sweet spot. Today, we assure you great food and gracious service across all our Bengaluru Outlets – every bit as special as at our Hyderabad Restaurants.

Order from over 70 varieties of dishes ranging from scrumptious Kebabs and Curries to irresistible Biryani and Desserts made with love and passion.

Paradise hits a six!

It all started in Bengaluru. India’s rapid ascent as a leader in IT services heralded the beginning of yet another golden age for India. In the flurry of development, it’s easy to forget that it all began on the outskirts of Bengaluru in an area that has since become one of the most vibrant industrial parks – the Electronics City.

IMG-20160502-WA0002Today, Electronics City is without doubt India’s IT high street. It is to IT industry what Dalal Street is to Financial Services. It is here that people from all corners of India have found careers that match their talent and ambition. Walk along the busy lanes, amidst glitzy offices of IT majors, and you will find it hard not to feel upbeat.

We are thrilled to share with you all that our sixth Outlet in Bengaluru is now open in Electronics City. Geeks, nerds, techies, call them what you like, they can enjoy the world’s favourite Biryani and a world of authentic Hyderabadi cuisine without travelling too far. Next to SJR Equinox, our new Food Court is conveniently located.

With classy interiors to match the surroundings, the Food Court offers royal Hyderabadi cuisine and gracious service. Open 11 AM to 11 PM, we serve delightful Biryani, scrumptious Kebabs, delectable Curries, sublime Desserts and more. Our Takeaway offers value-for-money combos if you like to enjoy asli Hyderabadi khana from the comfort of your home. Keep us on your weekend eating out list.

Saluting the spirit of women

Women are an eternal fountain of love, strength and virtue. It’s hard to think of the world without them, not because they form half of all population, but because of how selflessly they support the other half in achieving their aspirations and attaining happiness. As mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends, they nurture and sustain all that is good about life.

On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, #Paradise salutes the remarkable achievements of women. We also take pride in the fact that, from the beginning, we have focused on creating a welcoming environment to women and families. With each passing day, we see an increasing number of women visiting our Restaurants alone or with friends and colleagues.

This change took time and much effort. Firstly, we created interiors that are clean, elegant and homely. We also set up best-in-class security procedures to ensure that our Restaurants are safe. Facilities like valet parking certainly helped us attract more women. Most importantly, we trained our service staff to treat our women guests with absolute professionalism and respect.

This women’s day, visit our Restaurants and Takeaways to enjoy authentic Hyderabadi cuisine in a welcoming environment. It is a great opportunity to relax and sit down to a hearty meal – a well-deserved rest from the cares of life.
