Food Review – PARADISE (World Famous Biryani)


The word “Biryani” reminds me Hyderabad Cuisine, I am a great fan of Hyderabadi Biryani not only their non-veg but also the vegetarian biryani. When Hyderabadi Biryani comes to existence what would one remember, absolutely Paradise Biryani.

We had our 18th FBAB foodie meetup at Paradise, new BEL circle, Bangalore. It was held up by 17th (last Sunday), for lunch by 1:00 P.M till 4:00 P.M. This time my hubby also got an invite through FBAB and I was very happy to enjoy with him. Also I have to mention that my hubby is a Biryani Maniac, Biryani Lover and so on. We were waiting in the reception for our fellow foodies to join us.

About Paradise Biryani: Paradise a legend since 1953. Paradise Biryani is a world famous Biryani, they started their origin from a canteen and café in a theatre – “PARADISE” in secunderabad in the year 1953. Starting from 100 seater restaurant now extended as multiple restaurants on different floors. They started their take away by 2009 and later expanded their restaraunts all over secunderabad and Hyderabad. Now also they have 3 – 4 branches in Bangalore. Wish them all the best and spread all over the world.

Also we had small chat with their corporate Chef. Vijay Anand Bakshi about their restaraunts in Bangalore (Indira Nagar and Fraser Town). He also told that their restaurant in Frazer town serves breakfast (You get Paya), and got plans to serve breakfast in this (new BEL road) branch too. When I asked him about the secret ingredients in their Biryani, he told they never use any secret ingredient either have any secret style of preparing. But I think there must be something fissy – as it taste very delicious and stands unique when compared with all the other biryanis.

Ambiance: The place was too good with wonderful and attractive paintings, also we could find the pictures of celebrities here and there over the restaurant. They too got the clicks of their first restaurant, Charminar and few more places of Hyderabad. The restaurant was spacious, with good air circulation. As a mom I would say that kids would enjoy the place. They had a separate place for take away section. Newly opened restaurant in Bangalore.

Location: The restaurant is located in the BEL Main road. Address: Paradise Food Court, Vacuum House No.1, New BEL Road, Chokkmaranahalli. Corporation Ward #100, Kasaba Hobli, Bangalore North Taluk – 560094. Valet Parking is available so no worries for car parking.

Service: The service was too good.

Food: Our food started with falooda – Falooda was yummy with perfect texture. Coming to starters, we got to have all the starters, fish, chicken, meat, prawns and paneer. Tandoori Fish was melting in the mouth, Chicken was juicy and soft. We were served with variety of starters ranging from both veg and non-veg – Veg Manchurian, Chili paneer, Paneer 65, Chilli Chicken, Apollo Fish, chili prawns. Also we had one another unique recipe – Tulsi chicken and Tulsi paneer, it taste yummy.

Coming to Biryani, everyone knows that it is top most Biryani in India, so I rate 5 for biryani. We were served with special supreme Chicken biryani, Mutton biryani and Vegetable biryani with salan and raita. The curries was also too delicious.

Coming to desserts, when I start typing the word dessert I start drooling, now imagine the taste of the dessert. Now comes Double ka Meetha and Qubani Ka Meetha with the perfect taste, texture and color. Then comes Gulab Jamun and Gajar Halwa, coming to Gulab Jamun I found it little hard but the Gajar Halwa was again a hit with the perfect taste, texture and color.

Price: Price was reasonable, I would recommend going again and again not only for their Biryani, also for starters and desserts (YUM).

Already I have shared a post for Brew&Chew for their site hosting, and this time I got an invite through Brew&Chew for a foodie meet on 28th (last Saturday) for the review of Hello Curry.

Hello Curry is a food service retail brand operating in “Delivery Only” space and catering to the demand for quick, affordable and every day food. They started their Journey in 2013 with Hyderabad and recently spreading to Bangalore and Pune, to the total count of 32 stores.

They have been awarded for their best packaging for “Ready to Eat Restaurant Food”, National tie-up with PVR Cinemas and National Tie-up with IRCTC (Indian Railways).

As I heard that Hello Curry was the most popular Andhra Cuisine, I was expecting a spicy non-veg Biryani, a tangy raita and some spicy curry to accompany Biryani. But I had a unique experience with Hello Curry as they served us the food prepared by HOME CHEFS, also we were informed that they are going to a launch a platform for Home Chefs through Hello Curry.

I also loved the way how they served the food, it was in beautiful carton boxes, and was designed in a way that one can have the food during travel as such directly from the box, no need of plates or bowl for curry. Just peel the wrapper, have the food and throw the box. The boxes were also made out of recyclable materials.

Also got a chance to taste their CHICKEN BRIYANI, it was good. I would say that I will be back to taste all your foods, as I was drooling once I saw the menu’s with pictures. Hope will be soon invited for “Hello Curry” food tasting: P

Let me share the dishes served for us.

  • Paneer Paratha: Paneer paratha was from their Hello Paratha, it was soft and tasty.
  • Chicken Biryani: Hello Curries Chicken Briyani, not too spicy, not too oily, good texture and taste. Also Mr. Sandeep of Hello Curry stated that they use potli Masala, an authentic masala used in Hyderabadi Cuisine for aromatic flavor.
  • Pineapple Cream Chicken with Burnt Garlic Rice (Home Chef): This one was one among the most delicious Dish from their Home Chefs. I love the creamy texture and the taste was yummy.
  • Spicy Chicken Thai with Saffron rice by a Home Chef: This one was also good with a lovely texture.
  • Grilled Chicken by Home Chef
  • Mid-west Spicy Chicken with Chicken Mint Rice
  • Fish Curry and Steamed Rice
  • Allappey Prawn Curry with Ghee rice by Home Chef: This was also one among the most favorite among from their Home Chef. Also I am proud to say that this was prepared by one of foodie friend Soumiya Gopi.
  • Bread Jamun prepared by a Home chef: This was also one among the most delicious dish, and again this was also prepared by Soumiya Gopi.

I would say that really it’s going to be a best platform and good support for Home Chefs. Expecting them to launch their concept of Home chef very soon and also wish them all the success.

Thanks a lot to BrewandChew and Hello Curry for such a nice food tasting event.
