Whether we all agree or not, Paradise has certainly been one of the top trending restaurants in the food scene in Hyderabad since ages. The Biryani as we all know has been almost everyone’s favourite. The place that started off as a small café back in the fifties has been through ups and downs in terms of quality and taste of food served here over the years but nothing has stopped them from growing and spreading as many outlets as they can across the city!
The outlet beside Prasads IMAX in Necklace road was shut down for a while but now has reopened its doors to the crowd again. And this time it’s bigger, better and brighter with ample space to dine in. It now has a seating capacity that can hold up to 450 people at a time. I found the interiors spacious, clean and vibrant. An open kitchen is what you’ll find as you walk into the dining area on the ground floor. Paradise food court has opened a quaint little bakery outside which is located near the entrance as well.
We were served a couple of starters varying from chicken to fish, kebabs and the likes. All tasting pretty decent although I did enjoy the fish. Then of course the Biryani came in next and a couple of main course items like the kheema and murg musalam. The shocking part though was the black brownie! No, it ain’t a new dish like the black ice-cream, but was all burnt and they still chose to serve it! One bite and you’re lost… where? Don’t ask!
Ignoring that, Paradise does serve delicious Hyderabadi food along with North Indian and Chinese cuisines as well. It’s always a first option for anyone living here to pick up a pack of their biryani for dinner with family or close buddies. Never really disappoints!
