Lovely Experience

Went here on a friend's recommendation. We didn't know what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. The waitress was excellent - she recommended ways of combining dishes - and attentive. I had a delicious chicken dish with fruit & pistachio rice; my partner had a lamb stew with beans and lime. We... read more

Such a nice experience. The food was delicious, the staff very polite and helpful and the place itself super atmospheric. Highly recommend it!

We were brought to Paradise by some Iranian friends who reckon it is the best Persian in the city and it certainly did not disappoint. It is right next to Kelvinbridge underground and you can park on Gt Western Road after 6 so it has an ideal location. The decor is delightfully kitsch with the 'window fountain' and rugs stapled...

After a long day in Edinburgh with friends we looked for a place that could provide good food in a relaxing environment. My friend who is familiar with Glasgow recommended Paradise Restaurant. We were welcomed initially by suspicious glances which eventually turned into plain welcome notes and a query of whether we had a reservation. The restaurant was not full.... More

All in all, I love the salty sour refreshing sparkling drink there! Staff so considerate they even offered me to sample it ! And most definitely I asked for the big whole version immediately after I tried the sample! Why not!

Excellent service and food.from the kebabs,rice, salads and the breads all very good and tasty good. Good atmosphere too it was our second visit at this restaurant and most definitely won't be last. One thing if I could be critical of would be the decor a bit too much for my liking.

As someone from Iran, I can say this place makes me feel like I'm back in my own country. The environment inside the restaurant is calming because of the waterfall on the windows and relaxing persian music. When it comes to the food, this what they would serve you if you go to Iran. I've tried all kebabs on the... More

This place is most certainly my favourite Middle eastern restaurant in the west end (an area that is awash with good quality restaurants too). Portion sizes are huge, food is very flavoursome and delicious. The interior decor of the place also helps to set apart from the rest... You feel as though you've been sitting in someone's house and garden... More

I had wanted to visit Paradise for a while so was glad of the opportunity. However, I found the experience to be disappointing. As somebody in our party cancelled, we were told to move seat to accommodate a larger party - except when that party showed up they had the same number of people as us! The portions were generous...
