I've been ordering from Grub Hub for over a year and Never have I left a review because I never truly enjoyed my food. Most of the time the food is nasty a waste of money and runs through me!! I know TMI!! After what I just received from Paradigm I have to tell everyone this is The Spot to Order From!! You know the saying "Good things come to those who wait" well I waited!! A long time!! The staff are so pleasant you can't get upset!! I said to myself I hope this food is good!! When my food arrived the delivery guy was very pleasant. When I finally relaxed and ate my food the flavors exploded in my mouth!! The Rice!! So on Point!! My Jerk Chicken was falling off the bones with great flavor!! The Rasta Pasta!! Nice Serving size and flavors so on Point!! Trust me don't settle for less wait time. Order early and mentally prepare yourself to wait 1hr 1/2 +.. You have to understand the food is good so the demand is High!! Enjoy good food for your money and order from Paradigm!! I know I'm looking forward to my next order!!

Best food around. Period . If your from Maplewood/Union then you know . From the Jerk to the stew to the Rasta Pasta all amazing . My phone died and these angels still came back swiftly after me reaching out to the delivery driver after missing the call . The service and quality great . It takes longer to make better tasting food so be patient with them, truly blessed hands here at Paradigm . Dont listen to misleading reviews because I can guarantee you it was a communication error because the food is bangin.

The food was actually better then I expected but, then again I got simple stew chicken, rice & Mac & cheese, how can that be screwed up however, the one thing that could be worked on is their roti skin it was hard & dry as a brick.

Along with my order I got a free side of curry chicken due to they were out of the pound cake I wanted & cake period. The curry chicken was awesome as well. So overall I will be ordering from them again but, hopefully this time they'll have my pound cake & it too will be just as good.

Took a chance and it came out wonderfully.
The portions were great and it was seasoned amazingly though a bit of warning the jerk chicken is spicy so if you aren't look for some nice heat then be careful. The curry chicken was lovely with nice pieces of ginger in there as well. A little sad I couldn't try their Mac and cheese but that was that huge of a deal.

Im definitely impressed with the service this time. The many times I have ordered in the past the driver wasnt to friendly and the order was always extremely late. BUT this order surprised me the driver was very friendly and the food wasnt late. Keep up the good work. The food is always delicious.

While attending a conference at the Hilton we ordered delivery. The Curry Shrimp, Brown Stew Fish were delicious. Even the cabbage was extremely flavorful. Other attendees smelled our orders and decided to place orders as well. The next night several of us ordered the Oxtails which were also perfectly seasoned and tender. I also LOVED the homemade Ginger Lemonade which had the heavy zing that extremely refreshing and especially wonderful with the addition of rum! I wish a place with authentic Jamaican cuisine existed in my home town.

picking up was easy for me a little faster to get than when i order. love the food once again. i think they always have a batch of rice and chicken ready. it is quicker than when i get my fave, rasta pasta.

I recently became a vegan and trying to find good food that's close to work has been a challenge. Their vegan platter is so delicious - it gets an A+ in my book!!
