Paradise Biriyani

If I remember correctly, last time a place that got too much of chaotic attention for opening a branch in Chennai was Dunkin Donuts. People were crazy about them opening an outlet in Velachery and were standing in queues for a long time to get their hands on it. No. I haven't tasted anything from DD yet. The same kind of treatment was given to Paradise, when they opened their first outlet in Chennai a month ago. People were insane waiting for hours to get the biriyani. But the general feedback was complaints on service, waiting time, inefficiency in handling crowd etc etc. When it comes to trying out new places, I wait. I patiently wait for the dust to settle. Once they are on their feet, you get to see the true potential of that place.

I told myself that I'll visit paradise after 2-3 months. Even I kept myself from ordering in through Swiggy. In fact this visit to paradise was totally unplanned. We were heading to OMR Food Street for a simple dinner. I was showing hubby "Hey look. This is where Paradise has opened. I was telling you about this Hyderabad biriyani place na. This is that". And voila all of a sudden, hubby wanted to go there. I was like what seriously?!! That was big shock to me because I know how hard it is to convince him to try a new place. Now I panicked. I know the place will be crowded on weekdays itself. For sunday nite? At 8pm? One should be insane to even think of it. I tried to scare him away with statements like, it'll take atleast an hour to get seated / I heard the service is not good and all sorts of things. I don't know what had gotten into hubby that day, he was so adamant and he made a u-turn too. Who can rewrite the fate?

Paradise biriyani is located in Perungudi, diagonally opposite to Turyaa. It's hard to miss this place even if you are not looking for it :P Got pretty good parking along with valet service. They've few chairs in what looked like a waiting area along with a water dispenser. Two guys handling reservations as well as coordinating with the dining area regarding table availability. When I booked for 3 of us I was told that it'll take another 45 mins to get a table. We took a small walk and after good 30-35mins of time, we got our table in the third floor.

The place looked rich and classy, done in red mostly. We occupied a corner table and where handed over menu card in no time. We asked about the portion size of Full Chicken biriyani, to which the staff said two can share it. And he asked us to order just one which will serve the kid too. So we went with his suggestion and ordered a full chicken biriyani (Yep. Hubby doesn't eat mutton. Yet), a gobi manchurian, apollo fish and nizam handi subzi. Starters arrived in ten minutes. Gobi manchurian was typical andhra version. So spicy with loads of onions. Loved it. I would've been great if it was more crispy. Apollo fish was amazing. Melt in the mouth kind of fish and the marination was perfect. Spicy, a little bit sourness from the curd and the semi crisp batter was amazing.



Biriyani was simply divine. Rice was so fragrant and was cooked to perfection. Non oily, perfect in flavours with a brilliant aroma. There was generous amount of meat and it was well marinated, so soft and tender it falls of the bone with no effort. I loved the masala flavour at the bottom of the dish. Mixing it with the white and saffron infused rice at the top and I call that heaven :) As the waiter said 1 Full biriyani was just the right amount for the three of us.




Qubani ka meetha and double ka meetha were our desserts. Double ka meetha was yummy to bits. It was very hot and the richness of ghee gave an amazing taste to the dessert. Qubani ka meetha was very good too. Since we both were struggling with double ka meetha we packed the other one.


Service was exccellent. Staff were very polite and attentive. Paid close to 1400 for all these along with 300ml coke. Starters are priced on the higher side, whereas the biriyani at 245 bucks was worth every penny spent. I will be definitely going back just for the biriyani again and again.
