It is a nice place to enjoy south Indian non vegetarian, particularly sea food in an airconditioned comfort. We had ordered some fixed thalis which was served with 16 different types of accompaniments plus the typical Kerala rice and a sweet dish and of course the papadam. Additionally we also ordered a prawn and a crab dish which had thick... More

It's one of the places that I visit for breakfast in Calicut. The only thing that I have here is Appams. They are just the best with a nice light brown lace on the side and a fluffy center. It paired with either chicken or vegetable stew. I have tried the other dishes for lunch and dinner but I mainly... More

Good food but a not so great ambiance characterizes the place.. A local favorite, the place is nearly always jam packed.. A place to go if you are interested in south Indian Non-veg delicacies.. The prices are also decent but the atmosphere inside may put you off till the food arrives!!

One of the best Malabar restaurants in the world. If you are visiting Calicut make sure you have their Malabar Chicken Biriyani,and your taste buds will never forget that experience. Also try their Fish Mango Curry and Kerala Parotta too.

If you have plans visiting the prosperous trading town of Calicut(Kozhikode), Paragon is a must check restaurant for foodies and you will never be disappointed. The menu is embarrassingly vast and this always packed restaurant was founded back in 1939.It's quite popular among the region for fish dishes such as fish in tamarind sauce and its famous chicken biriyani. However,... More

Had appam and fish curry while a colleague had appam and vegetable curry. The appams came in cold and the fish curry was good, however, I get the same taste in Bangalore so nothing really unique. Heard prawn curry is also quite good but did not try that. Chicken biryani was also good. The place is more like a Dhaba.

Hotel paragon will be the first restaurant that locals will recommend for typical malabar food. The restaurant has been in that location for years and would say they had well kept their tradition of serving the best quality food. Highly recommend for everybody who is visiting or never tried. Also recommend to check spice level before ordering traditional dishes (If... More
