This is one of my favorite places for appams & fish curry & prawns. Its good value for money & a very satisfying tasty meal. They do good prawns & crabs too & even offer home delivery, but its best to eat the appams freshly made.

Indian restaurant close to Karamana park. We went with friends and when we got to there we probably saw the best visit card: a queue of only Indian people (although 10 persons were in front of us in less than 10min we were seated), followed by a nearly 100% of Indian people - great when you want some real Indian...

It wasn't easy to find, but it was worth the navigating. The waiter gave us great recommendations and the food was authentic and sublime. Will return on my next visit!

A little patience and you will savour the good food. You may have a waiting at any time, but believe me it's worth the wait! Great place for fingerlicking south indian coastal cuisine.

We have been to the Calicut Paragon months back and couldnt stop making plans for the next visit. It was when we were in Dubai, we heard of their branch in Karamah, Dubai. We dropped in for lunch and trust me, it is the same taste, quality and experience that you would find in the original paragon back in Calicut.... More

Excellent option for a budget dinner or lunch. On weekend days you may have to wait for 10-15 minutes at least. Food is generally spicy like typical Kerala style.

Amazing food in the heart of Karama, Dubai.. Even at 3.30 pm the restaurant was packed and we had to wait for a good 10 minutes. The place has 2 floors and both the ground and top floor has vast seating arrangements. The waiters have a pleasing personality and are patient while taking your order. We ordered appam, poratta, malabari... More

Get to the heart of Karama and there are tons of tiny restaurants that serve up just the best food you can eat for your money. This one... Not so tiny... Just as awesome Great seafood. Appams with Prawn Moilee was just perfect. We ordered a Tawa fry hamour which was great, fried prawns with coconut pieces and kingfish and... More

Unpretentious place in Dubai, in what looked to be a South Asian neighborhood. Cafe style restaurant with wait service. Don't miss the crab curry clay pot. Another great dish was the grilled/stir fried shrimp with a special pepper based curry sauce with onions. Very reasonably price for Dubai. A sumptuous lunch or dinner for 2 should run under 120 AED.... More

Paragon has a huge legacy attached to it and they have never disappointed when it comes to serving authentic kerala & Malabar cuisine. We had the chicken biriyani / karimeen pollichathe & chicken pepper roast along with wheat parottas and pathiri for lunch. This was easily one of the best meals we had in dubai. Anyone can visit this place... More
