Offering a convenient location along the High Street in the Shropshire town of Newport, the Taste of Paradise restaurant knows a thing or two about Indian cuisine. A highly popular destination within the town for an Indian meal out, the Taste of Paradise restaurant has been satisfying the demands of local curry fans for some years now and boasts a long list of happy regulars. Specialising in the traditional Indian dish of balti, Taste of Paradise caters for all kinds of dining occasions; from birthdays to romantic meals for two, and family get togethers to dinner with friends.
The menu journeys through the various culinary regions of India with dishes varying in heat levels to cater for all tastes. Try the Paradise Special, a dish of tandoori king prawn, chicken tikka, lamb tikka, garlic, ginger and tomatoes or the tender roasted lab dish known as bhindi ghoust, cooked with onions, capsicum, coriander and fenugreek for a wonderfully fragrant flavour. Spice fans will love the Ceylon balti cooked with chicken, meat or prawns and infused with coconut and fresh lemon whilst those who prefer their food on the mild side should opt for the Paradise Mellow with chicken tikka, almonds, coconut, sultanas and mixed fruits. All of the usual classic Indian dishes are all present and correct too to keep the traditionalists happy.
A smart, modern little dining room, Taste of Paradise is entered via an arched entrance and is decked out in whites and hot pinks. Tall, black leather seats add a touch of chic whilst palm trees painted onto one wall beside the bar is a kitsch little touch.
