This place is must visit if you are in Calicut or passing through it. It has a quaint old worldly charm that could get you hooked on. The best part ofcourse is the food. If you fancy sea food - the fish mango curry is unmissable!

For years we frequent this place. It remains as popular as ever for the food they serve which has a Malabar flavour. The mutton biriyani is the best you can get in Calicut.

If you love authentic Malabar food, this is the best restaurant to visit. I always visit this place. There were times when I used to visit every weekend to try new varieties of sea foods. The best restaurant for non-vegetarians.

Good Biriyanis , also good fried rice (even this you can feel the freshness of vegetables used ) . Sea food items also yummy. For Family you have to wait little bit in rush hours.

I am regular visitor of paragon in Calicut and now at Cochin also. It's the number one restaurant as far as the non vegetarians are concerned. Good quality delicious food and good service. Always expect delay to get a space during busy hours but normally the wait won't be so long since they have sufficient space and tables to manage... More

If you are somebody who wants to find out what the Malabar cuisine tastes like, this is the place you should head to! The dishes are exquisite and well worth the occasional wait (thanks to the frequent rush)... Before you know it you will be heading back for more!

Paragon is not just another restaurant, but is an institution in Calicut. If you are a non-vegetarian then this should be in your top 10 list. We are foodies and have traveled all over the globe and have enjoyed all types of cuisines. Besides, my wife is an out-standing cook and a food blogger. So to say that Paragon is... More

If you are visiting calicut... You must visit Paragon hotel. Otherwise there is no point in coming to Calicut. The Biriyani available in this hotel is the best you are about to taste. Not even 5star hotel can't cook such a Biriyaani.. Staffs are also nice. Please visit Paragon. Know the real taste of Calicut

This hotel is today a part of the city's contemporary folklore. It would be a disappointment if you missed it while touring Calicut. All their dishes are good. They have two outlets, one at the Focus Mall and the main one on the Wayanad Road. Find more about my travel escapes on mallubackpacker.blogspot.in. Try out their biriyani, karimeen polichathu, meen... More

We went here to order the special biriyani at around 9.30 PM, but couldnt as it had exhausted. Hence, we order some other dishes. The food was pretty good going by the popularity of the restraunt of being very tasty food and one of the oldest restraunt. Its a typical family restraunt with some of the drinks/mocktails being very tasty.

Thank Satyajit28
