Undoubtedly the best food joint in Calicut. If you get to travel down to the food joint of Kerala (Calicut) you should surely check out Paragon. When ever my friends travel down to Calicut for the first time to calicut i surely take them to Paragon and they go crazy with the food they get. Yummiest food in town... They... More

Paragon is one of the worth visiting hotels in Kozhikode. It is on the Kannur Kozhikode road within 8 Kms of Calicut city. Its approachable by auto rikshwas from Kozhikode railway station and bus stand. One need to try the non veg delicacies of this restau. The best part is the Chicken Biryani and Mutton Biryani. The best appam (rice... More

I am a regular visitor to CP. Both in UAE and in Calicut. The food always reminded me of home. Over the years, I am convinced that the taste and quality has come down.

We knew exactly what we wanted and therefore went in knowingly. Unlike most people who throng the place for their biriyani we were interested in the other Malabari stuff and they gave us exactly what we wanted. We ordered mango fish curry, malabari barotas, beef chilly fry (may not be Malabari but a Kerala special for sure!) and Nettoli, small... More

Hotel Paragon is the best place in the city to enjoy authentic Malabari Biriyani. Considering that this place is famous, both with the locals as well as the tourists, getting a table can be a bit of challenge. However, their preparations are so good that it is well worth the wait. While the Biriyani may be the most famous dish... More

Having trusted trip advisor reviews for the Paragon restaurant, we decided to check this out. They don't take reservations after 12.30 pm, you just walk in. We thought it won't be so crowded on a Wednesday afternoon but we were mistaken. At 1.45 pm, there were at least 30 people waiting for a table. We were very hungry and so... More

Among the best mutton biryani I have had till now. Soft, succulent meat and flavorful rice! We had ordered some chicken and prawns starters but the mutton biryani was the clear favorite, so much so that we repeated the order. There were 12 of us and their service was reasonably prompt. Highly recommended!
