Paradise Indian Food is a firm Auckland favourite. Constantly bustling with people, the Sandringham Road restaurant and takeaway store specialises in cuisine from Hyderabad, India. Dine in the restaurant and feast on their signature rice biryani dishes or play it safe with their flavoursome butter chicken. We can’t go past their onion pakora (it’s the best in town!) and chicken madras. There are some more unusual dishes on the menu including a range of Indian Chinese dishes and their popular deep fried lollypop chicken. The adjoining takeaway store extends its hours by half an hour in the morning and evening, being open from 11am to 10pm.
