Came to Paradise on the recommendation of my 22 year old son. We frequent Indian restaurants regularly and have past Paradise often, when crowds are out front. This is the BEST Indian food I have had. The Masala was full of chicken, and the flavours perfect. My wife (who is an avid cook) had the butter chicken and said this... More

Paradise is real Indian food paradise! We (as vegetarians) ate there great indo-chinese food: Manchurian; 'must-try' Butter Masala Paneer with plain rice and Vegetarian Biryani. If you eat meat - try chicken biryani. It was on every table around us and people loved it! Employees are nice, food very delicious.

Paradise is our local Indian takeaway and dine in. We're lucky that they are only a km away. The taste is authentic, with a great use of spice and seasoning. Being a Halal compliant restaurant, most of the meat dishes are chicken or lamb, and there are always ample servings of meat.

Great Service but the food is too much commercialized - Mass production therefore not personalized and not tasty

I've never been to India so I really can't say if this is authentic or not, but it sure is yummy. I was recommended it by my Indian work friend. For $31 got a butter paneer, a lamb dish, 3 naan breads and 2 mango lassies. So cheap. It was all very yummy and good portion sizes.

Our friends arrived early to get a table. No booking available. They waited 20 minutes. We went for an early dinner, 1800 hrs. / 6 pm. The food was very tasty and delicious. Impressed. Large serving. Pleasantly offered and supplied a doggy bag to go. Would go again.

We dine out here for lunch regularly and it’s always 10/10. Our waiter, Jaggi, provides great service and always has a new dish to recommend. The food is delicious and their Butter Chicken is the best I have ever had! I highly recommend Smart India!
