    Exciting and very tasty food. Lovely, helpful staff. A little (over) crowded with tables very close together - but that probably reflects how popular 'Paradise' is. Will definitely visit again.

    We don't eat meat and all of our dishes were bland, tasteless. I thought there would be flavour, spices a real taste of the east. Nope. The naan bread was microwaved and hard at the edges. We had to go to the till to pay as we didnt get any service, when we did one of the waiting staff was stood eating a plate of food behind the till talking to a man not in any uniform, which was what must have kept the waitress from asking if we wanted our bill, he was more Interesting than us. Really disappointed, def wont be back.

    We were really disappointed. The food sounded really good but didn't taste very nice at all. Only 1 dish that we chose was good. It was all lukewarm. Naan bread was soggy. Would not recommend or visit again. Overpriced for the quality of what you got to eat. There are definitely better places to eat in the west end of Glasgow.
