Paradise Biryani – Not a meal but an experience

There are needs and then there are desires. When you are thirsty, in this heat especially, you would want to drink a glass of cold water to quench that overpowering thirst. As you gulp down that cold water, it goes down your throat, soothing your parched being, and rehydrating each and every cell of your body, you are responding to a need. But when you are not thirsty to the point of getting dehydrated and you just want to drink something because you desire it, you would want a beverage of your choice and sip it slowly to experience the taste, the consistency and the coolness.

Well, that’s what desires are: they are not short-lived urges, but deep-rooted wishes – and we make some of them come true. Desires are an experience in themselves—if you have ever desired a Paradise Biryani and then had it, you know it is not a mere meal, it is an experience. Having Biryani at Paradise cannot be reduced to eating a meal when one is hungry. No, having Biryani at Paradise is an experience, a delightful, heady experience in which all five senses participate. Those who have experienced it never forget it.

It would not be an exaggeration but a truthful admission that when visiting friends or family in another city and ask them what you should bring from Hyderabad, they always ask for Paradise Biryani! For when you have Biryani at Paradise, you are taking part in a magical experience. The Salan adds more texture and spice to each mouthful and the Raita soothes the glow of fire that the spices kindle. It is no wonder then that having the Paradise Biryani is such a memorable experience.

Relive the experience that is Paradise Biryani at your nearest Outlet today. Spread the joy and share this one of a kind experience with friends and family, come dine at Paradise or pick up your favourites from our Takeaway counters and bring home some Paradise.

Fine weather, finest cuisine

Chicken PlatterWhat lovely weather! Probably, the last of rains this monsoon have been lashing the country over the last couple of weeks. Forget the traffic and the roads, this is one of the best times to go out and have a good time. This is also the time when one craves something hot and delicious. We have a few recommendations that can make your meal outing special and memorable.

First in line are our Kebabs. Tender, sizzling and delectable, our steaks are the snack of the season. There is also the Hot N Juicy Kebabs Festival that we are running at our Hyderabad and Bengaluru Outlets that brings together the most diverse spread of Kebabs – both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Check out the new varieties before the Festival ends on September 30.

Happy Holi, everyone!

India’s festive calendar is a rather busy one. Yet, we celebrate each one with lots of enthusiasm. Why not? More than anything, our festivals are a celebration of life. This week, we have the special festival of Holi coming up. The mere mention of Holi calls to mind images of people playfully throwing colour at each other, children running around with their pichkaris, and endless rounds of savoury mithai.

One of the most anticipated festivals, Holi announces the arrival of spring. Young and old, everyone delights in the fun, the dazzle, and the warmth that mark this festival. How wonderful would it be to enjoy a meal complements the buoyant spirit of Holi! This Wednesday, after the festivities, visit Paradise Restaurants to enjoy cuisine that is just as delightful and energising.

Let’s start with the jewel in the crown of Hyderabadi cuisine – the Biryani. A delectable riot of flavours, Paradise Biryani brings together myriad spices, slender Basmati rice, and tender meat or vegetables to give you a uniquely satisfying experience. Everyone enjoys the Biryani and no one ever gets bored by it, no matter how frequently one enjoys it.

It’s not all spice though. For a sweet ending to a Biryani meal, enjoy our Double-ka-Meeta and Qubani-ka-Meeta. Rich, creamy and tantalising, these Desserts melt in your mouth and give your taste buds a heavenly joyride. We cannot recommend them enough. Drop by our Restaurants this Holi to enjoy a royal Hyderabadi meal with friends and family.

A special winter treat

im1Winter is here, and with it, the familiar chill. Temperatures are dropping, but not the spirits. In fact, most of us are cheered by the joyful intimations of the approaching holiday season. As we prepare to unwind, relax and have a great time, we want to recommend you some drinks and dishes from the Hyderabadi kitchen that will keep you warm and upbeat.

In the mornings, a cup of hot Irani chai with Osmania biscuits is a great way to warm oneself at the start of the day. The crunchy and creamy texture of the Osmania biscuits perfectly complements the refreshing taste of the Chai. For lunch, it is hard to surpass the delightful feeling that washes over you as you enjoy a bowl of authentic Hyderabadi Biryani.

We also serve irresistibly delicious Puffs, which are popular with the younger lot. For dinner, you can try out our finest selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian Kebabs – hot off the grill. In the main course, you can never go wrong with our selection of flavourful Curries and soft Rotis.

There are Desserts too that are served nice. Our Double-ka-Meeta, made with pure ghee and topped off with roasted pistachio, is the best climax you could think of for a royal Hyderabadi meal. There’s nothing like having asli Hyderabadi khana during winter. Walk in to Paradise Restaurants/Takeaways in Hyderabad and Bengaluru and enjoy a special winter treat.

Consistency is king!

Consistency is the holy grail of all leading food brands. For restaurants with presence at multiple locations, it is also one of the most challenging things to achieve. Making sure that guests enjoy excellent cuisine and service every single time they visit a restaurant determines how well it can scale and grow. When it comes to consistency, there are no second chances.

Chicken Biryani_finalAt Paradise, we understand the importance of delighting our guests every time they visit any of our 12 outlets. We understand the expectations of our guests are high and meeting them requires discipline, diligence and dedication. For the last two years, we have been focusing on this important aspect to ensure that we grow our business and quality at the same time.

We constituted a cross-functional team in place, which is overseen by the top management. This team recommends and puts in place the processes that help us deliver the signature Paradise experience to all our guests across locations and visits. The team focuses on the continuous improvement of areas as diverse as security, ambience, billing, food and service.

Working towards ensuring a delightful experience for guests across all our outlets is a continuous work in progress. It demands rigorous attention to detail because Hyderabadi cuisine, with its myriad ingredients and elaborate cooking procedures, is challenging even for the best of Chefs. We promise you that we are steadily getting there.

Twelve and counting!

Lovers of Hyderabadi food never had it so good. For a long time, one had to visit our only Food Court at Secunderabad to enjoy Paradise Biryani and Kebabs.  Now, we operate twelve Food Courts spread across India’s two most vibrant cities: Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Thanks to the love of our guests, most of these have become landmarks of sorts.Blog-12

Given the expectations our guests have from us, it is important to ensure consistency of food and service across Restaurants and across visits. For us, this is a continuous effort, a perpetual work in progress. Judging from the great feedback we have been receiving from our new outlets in Bengaluru, we believe we are heading in the right direction.

To keep our menu interesting, we are adding several new varieties from time to time. We are also conducting special festivals, like the Mazedar Kebab Festival and Veg Fiesta to serve new dishes to regular guests. In select Restaurants, we are also serving a special Hyderabadi breakfast. Our goal is to be your favourite food destination.

Opening our twelfth outlet in Koramangala was a proud moment for us, which gave us the opportunity to reflect on our journey so far. Retracing our growth from a modest café to one of the most-admired Restaurant chains in the country was an inspiring experience. We also looked at the future and saw the immense promise it holds for us. We can only say that we’ve never been happier.
