Appams with Prawn Moilee was just perfect. We ordered a Tawa fry hamour which was great, fried prawns with coconut... read 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

If someone asks me for the best Kerala joint in Deira, i would refer them to Calicut Notebook. I have been trying out most of their dishes and so far they have been damn good.

The calicut paragon in karama is simply a carbon copy of the restaurant that is located in calicut. All the dishes are above par and they simply match the standards. So guys enjoy the food and relish Kerala culture as always.

.... dish I've ever had in 16 months here in dubai is the fish fillet tawa, which was six succulent pieces of tender fish pan fried in a delicious moist and spicy baste, a fairly dry dish served on banana leaves. I read the chicken biryani was good so had that too which didn't disappoint, fresh rice covering chicken surrounded... More

To an extent paragon here replicate the same restaurant at Kozhikode, Kerala in taste and quality! Though I found the parent restaurant to be better, food here is pretty good. Biriyani is their trademark and they have a good seafood variety and you can choose from the catch of the day. Staff needs a bit more training as the waiter... More
