Paradise Biryani Pointe Opens in Artesia's Little India

The Bibigo of Indian food?

Paradise Biryani Pointe, which could be described as the Indian Bibigo if one were so inclined, is now open in Artesia's Little India, serving dishes from a tandoor, Hyderabad cuisine, and its eponymous specialty of biryani, the Mughali-descended rice dishes served choc-a-block with meats, veggies, and spices, adapted by multiple regions across the subcontinent. The chain is currently 30-strong, with franchised locations from Santa Clara to Jackson Heights. The newbie in Artesia offers a menu with dishes like goat sukha and goat masala, salmon tikka, Chinese-influenced Manchurian shrimp, and four types of biryani, among both vegetarian and meat-free dishes. The opening in Southern California is part of a growth that will see the chain expand to 45 stores by the end of next year. 18158 Pioneer Blvd. Artesia; 562-666-2334. [IW]
