Paradise Biryani Pointe - Fridley Ratings and Reviews
We wanted to try this incarnation of Indian restaurant in this location. The place looks dingy and dirty from outside and inside. Three waiters working, two very new (first day). They were very helpful, but the "veteran" waitress could not describe any items, could only read the menu to us! She said she had not tried that particular dish -- no excuse for poor customer service. The biryani (the dish the restaurant is named for!) was simply rice, spices and small pieces of chicken. It's pretty bad when the new waiter is describing what "real" biryani is and then we have to look down at the rice pilaf on our plate! Many other better Indian restaurants in the area - will not go back.
I have been here before for the buffet lunch. It was not exceptional and very similar to some other Indian restaurants in an around the twin cities.
On this occasion, I was there for dinner so there was no buffet option. I should say I was very glad :)
I got to choose from the menu and the food was far better than what is in the buffet.
The starter was made to order and the biryani was one of the best I've had in some time.
Food and service are always amazing. The music was a bit too loud, given the fact that not very many people were in the restaurant and it was reall cold in there. I had to keep my winter jacket on and I was still cold. I would recommend if they read this, that if they open at 5, they need to crank their heat up at 4:30 so it is comfortable in the restaurant for guests when they open at 5.
Out of all the restaurants that have been in that spot and Indian restaurants in the area overall, Paradise has all the potential of being a hot spot for people of all ethnicities. Since it's new and I have only been there a couple times, I haven't gotten a real feel yet, but I would like to go there again. (It's not very often that I go to an Indian restaurant in Minnesota)
The restaurant itself is very neat, service is professional and the ambiance is comfortable. The food is very different than what i've had at any other Indian restaurant, it has a very professional yet crisp touch. The use of spices is exact, resulting in food that i've found enjoyable, whereas other Indian restaurants tend to overuse spices unnecessarily.
