You won't find a better indian restaurant in Auckland. They have a takeaway and a dining area. The tikka is awesome and all the other dishes i had there were qualitatively high.

We love this place and the great selection that you can get. We always get takeaway as this place is so busy on the weekends. Enjoy the chicken biryani and tandoori chicken

Flavour and quality of food excellent. Recommended. Good location, service and modern clean restaurant. 2 mains with rice Naan and a coke for $41 was excellent value.

Loved this Indian restaurant which our son introduced us to. I found the sauces very well textured and not the usual bulk stuff! Had the chicken tikka as I was the only non-vege at the table and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

We ordered chicken biryani and chicken 65. The biryani and the chicken 65 were part of a deal.The order was ready to be picked up in the quoted time. We placed the order in the afternoon and it was busy. The biryani came with raita and curry. The food was delicious. Would recommend it when you want to escape the... More

We've been three times now after recommendation from a friend . This place is always busy but it's worth it! We live in Hamilton but always venture to paradise when in Auckland because it's so good. You get heaps of meat with the curry sauce and the curry is always tasty and creamy. Highly recommend the chicken korma and saagwala.... More

During our stay in New Zealand this is the only restaurant we visited twice. The first time was on a weekend when they were quite busy. Orders are placed at the counter and then delivered to the table. Portions are very generous and the order of chicken kadai and vegetable jalfrezi was excellent. Seating is a bit cramped and does...

Had heard a lot about the food from Paradise. But what's the hullabaloo about? The wait is long, the food supposedly is fantastic but isn't, so why would I go there? That's the question which I asked after going there. The Daal (lentils)l tasted like it was cooked straight from a pressure cooker, the paneer (cottage cheese) was atrocious. The... More

We read the great reviews of Paradise in Sandringham Rd. The actual restaurant was full but we were advised the buffet restaurant around the corner would have room. Friendly service but oh my word the food was mass produced and just awful. Didn't taste like anything, just fake and bland and biryani really?? Just rice with a few bits stirred... More
