First, looking at other reviews I need to specify that this is Il Paradiso on Airport Road (formerly Thong Ping Road), not the Chinese restaurant of the same name further toward the commercial area for which some reviews have been submitted. Second, this is my second review of the restaurant. I visited it frequently during my long stays in 2010... More

I wish that I had a magic power that would allow me to instantly recreate recipes for dishes I like when we eat out. I went to Il Paradiso for a work lunch, having never eaten out in South Sudan, and having never even eaten Ingera. When I arrived, I couldn't decide what to choose, so the patient and kind... More

The best Chinese food in town served in a colonial style restaurant. I prefer the rooftop serving area.

We were a party of 13 going there. The food is very good. Keep up the good kitchen! We may have been a bit to early, but one huor wait is very long. Also the desert took very long to get.

This is the restaurant on Airport Road, very close to the Presidential Compound. This restaurant is attached to a hotel of the same name, but it is a small hotel and the restaurant is very much stand-alone with an open-air dining area. I found the service to be rather fast and very friendly. If you want pizza, you need to... More

I am not sure if the street name is correct in the address. Whatever map you look at has different names for roads in Juba. To find it go 1km South West along the dual lane road from the airport. It is pretty easy to find. This is an outdoor restaurant. They serve both international cuisine and Ethiopian. I had... More

Paradiso is another popular place among those working with UN and NGOs in Juba. They have variety of excellent food with fair price and the atmosphere is great, particularly when there is a football match. Paradiso shows it on one wall so that everyone can watch with excitement.

A preferred place for a quick dinner with friends as the food is much better than the ambience! Their oriental dishes are great and comes with fluffy rice and company.

Well there is nothing too special about the place and there is nothing too bad about it as well apart from the fact that is outdoors and it gets kinda hot in summers.
