We enjoyed the Paradise at the Grant Park location for years and were sorry to see it move. The new Sunnyvale location is a little space challenged and the few times we have tried it the wait for the food can be much longer than we remembered.
Our favorite is the lamb shank, and I like the cauliflower dish. My wife does not like cauliflower but they prepare it with sufficient spices that she says it tastes OK.
