Indulge in 22 Exotic varieties of kebabs across all Paradise outlets. The 64-year-old brand synonymous with Hyderabadi Dum Biryani hosted bloggers for their on going third edition Kebab festival.
We got to taste 12 classic and fusion varieties of kebabs from the festival. Every kebab listed for the festival has a signature ingredient that makes it special says-Corporate Chef Saurabh Saxena. Chef also adds that monsoons are the best season to savor these kababs, we are thrilled to showcase 22 varieties of kababs from across length and breadth of country.
Kebabs originated in 12th century Turkey, the grilled meats were a delicacy among turks and arabs who travelled for trade on the silk route regularly. Soon these mildly spiced and grilled kebabs gained popularity in other parts of asia and mughlai cuisine.

Back in 1953, a small Canteen and Cafe functioned out of a cinema theater called Paradise in Secunderabad. The Café continued its services even when the theatre shut down. Between 1978 and 1996, under the leadership of Mr A Hemati, the restaurant underwent an exhaustive re-structuring, renovation and modernization program that was aimed at adapting to the changing social trends and evolving food habits of the people. The Paradise brand became synonymous with Hyderabad and Biryani and it was only in 2004 that the Management decided to expand to other cities and other localities in Hyderabad.
