Gorge On The Delish Donne Biryani At Shivaji Military Hotel In Jayanagar
What Makes It Awesome
Shivaji Military Hotel lives up to its name by serving piping hot delicious Donne Biryani that sells like hot cakes literally. It's one of the oldest joints in Bangalore and was started in 1930.
What Could Be Better?
It seems unorganized as it's so overcrowded and it gets cramped up. There are people surrounding your table and waiting for you to vacate your seat. It would be better if they had a bigger space with more tables to accommodate more people.
What's My Pro Tip?
This place is overcrowded throughout the week and if you drop in late, you're gonna miss out on a couple of dishes as they run out of their lip-smacking food quite quickly. So, you've gotta get here early if you want to eat peacefully and if you want to try a couple of dishes on their menu. It's super crowded on the weekends and they're out of Biryani way before their closing time. Like they say, "the early bird catches the worm", in this case, "the early bird catches the biryani".
Apart from the Chicken and Mutton Donne Biryani which it's famous for, the starters are incredibly delightful as well. Do try their chicken dry, mutton dry and chili chicken. If you're a hardcore non-vegetarian and if you love spicy food this is the ideal place for you.
