Greener on the other side

It is true that Hyderbadi cuisine is an irresistible feast for non-vegetarians. That is not to say that vegetarians will be given short shrift. At Paradise, we have always been in the lead when it comes to putting new varieties on our vegetarian menu that rival non-vegetarian dishes.

Let the non-vegetarians boast of their Mutton Biryani and Chicken Tikka Kebab, vegetarians can enjoy the tantalising flavour of Vegetarian Biryani and Veg. Sheek Kebab. Our guests can also help themselves to an extensive selection of vegetarian starters and curries.

Chefs, taking inspiration from both Nizam and local cuisine, expertly cook our vegetarian cuisine to give it a distinct flavour that livens you up. We take hygiene seriously. To prevent cross-contamination, our vegetarian dishes are cooked in a separate section of the kitchen and strictly in separate vessels.

Try our unique and delicious vegetarian fare cooked in authentic Hyderbadi tradition at our Restaurants and Takeaways. Open 11.30 AM to 11 PM at Secunderabad, Hitec City, Masab Tank (Takeaway only), NTR Gardens, Kukatpally and Begumpet.

Raise a toast to rains

The city has been hit by a heat wave and the temperature has soared in the last few days. Very soon though, summer gives way to monsoons that drench the city and show it at its best. Never mind the traffic problems, monsoons in Hyderabad are most often pleasant and thoroughly enjoyable. The city with its charming lakes and heritage structures comes alive.

It is not just scenery though, there is also good food and drink to enjoy. Imagine yourself whiling away a drizzle sipping hot Irani chai with tasty Samosas to go with it. On a rainy evening, can there be something more satisfying than a Biryani with its fresh meat and vegetables cooked to perfection? There are also Kebabs that you can bite as you see off a night storm.

Rains regenerate the spirit. The season increases your appetite for food and the finer pleasures of life. Hyderabad with its culinary marvels offers a delightful feast to food lovers. When the city receives its first showers, most likely next week, go out with friends and family to witness its beauty first-hand and experiment with diverse cuisine.

The coming weeks promise good weather and we at Paradise promise you great food. Come to Paradise and enjoy award-winning Hyderabadi food at our Restaurants/Takeaways at Secunderabad, Hitec City, Masab Tank (Takeaway only), NTR Gardens, Kukatpally and Begumpet.

The True People’s Food

People didn’t just stumble on the recipe for an authentic Hyderabadi Biryani. Like all popular dishes, it evolved through the centuries from its original Persian variety to admit influences from diverse cuisines – the cuisine of Andhra Pradesh in particular.What began, during the heyday of the Nizam Empire, as a nutritious food to feed soldiers soon entered the opulent kitchens of Nawabs where several exotic spices were tossed in to elevate its taste. In the royal court of Nizam, it achieved gourmet status becoming the dish of choice for several distinguished elite.

The fact that ordinary soldiers and royal Nawabs alike admired it shows that it is a true people’s food. It also explains why even today so many people – rich, poor and everyone in between – enjoy it. Just about everyone loves it. However, it would have remained an exotic food relished by a narrow group of connoisseurs had it not been for restaurants like Paradise which brought it back from royal kitchens into the larger society so that everyone can have it.

Starting in mid 1950s, we made sure this jewel in the culinary crown of Nizam Nawabs is available to all. Today, everyone from a wealthy industrialist to a daily wage worker, enjoy the divine taste of Hyderabadi Biryani at Paradise Food Courts. It is a classy food that commands a great following from people of all classes – a true leveller that goes on to show that when it comes to enjoying the nicer things in life, we are all the same.

Try our famous Hyderabadi Biryani and savour its rich history by walking into our restaurants / Takeaways at Secunderabad, Hitec City, NTR Gardens, Masab Tank and Kukatpally today. Happy times for all !

Samosa & Chai: The Ultimate Combo

In our quest for the best, we always discard the “or” in favour of “and”. When we buy a shirt, we think about the trousers it goes well with. We top off our favourite chocolate latte with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. We round off a perfect meal with a paan. We prefer matching our shoes and dresses. We are not content with enjoying the best in isolated things; we love combining the best in many.

From a very long time, Hyderabadis have been enjoying a combination that has become a part of their culture: chai and samosa. Many of them believe that, to satisfy their hunger between meals, nothing beats a samosa washed down with a hot cup of rejuvenating Irani chai.

Let’s say that you want to meet with a friend and it is not quite time for a lunch or dinner. The best thing to do is to walk into the Paradise cafe or Bakery at Secunderabad to have samosa and chai, which is what many of our customers have been doing for the last 60 years. Nothing complements the taste of a scrumptious samosa better than a flavor some Irani chai. No wonder so many call them the ultimate combo.

Before we became known for the best Biryani we make, we were extremely popular for our chai and samosas. Today, they remain just as popular as our Biryani. Try this combo for yourself and chances are that you would have more reasons to visit us – again and again.

Make your celebrations memorable

What’s a celebration without great food? For almost all cultures, food is at the centre of celebrations. This practice achieved its full expression in the royal court of Nizam where every meal became a celebration; a feast of abundant joy that life has to offer. To this day, we at Paradise continue this tradition.For more than half a century, Paradise has been “the address” for all celebrations large and small. The hallowed interiors of our restaurants have been witness to all manner of celebrations: a businessman celebrating a profitable deal, a young engineer gushing about his new job, a manager happy on his promotion, an affectionate parent seeing his child grow an year older, a young couple in high spirits on their anniversary, a reunion of grown-ups reminiscing about school days, and a family quietly relieved that their soldier son has come back safe from the war. We can go on and on.

From little triumphs to life-changing successes, Paradise Food Courts make your celebrations truly special. Everyday, our restaurants brim with the exhilarating energy of people celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and get-togethers over great food and interesting conversations. Happy times indeed!
