With the rise of different mughlai food chains and delivery joints in kolkata, the competition is day by day increasing! We all have had Kolkata style biryani where potato is a must but there are hardly few places in town where you can get that authentic dum biryanis! So, Biryani By Kilo (BBK) has come up with the old traditional way of making biryanis in clay pots.


Biryani by Kilo is so far the biggest fresh dum cooked biryani delivery chain as well as dine-in almost completing its 5 years of journey and operating in nearly 22 cities with 50 outlets across India. (Recently launching its outlet in Jamshedpur). By the name itself, BBK serves handi biryanis on the basis of weight (either half kg/one kg). They have wide variety of menu including kebabs, biryanis, kormas, curries, rotis, non-veg parathas, desserts etc. In Kolkata, they have two outlets - one situated near Golpark and the other one near Salt Lake.


As we all know, Hyderabadi Biryani is the world's most popular dish originating from the house of Nizams. To have that experience, BBK air cooks the hyderabadi biryani individually in traditional style in natural clay handis. The meat, rice, spices are layered in a handi, followed by covering its mouth with a clay lid and then sealing it with a thick paste of flour and water. They slow cook each handi biryani for each individual order for about 30-40 minutes at more than 250°C and deliver the same in around 60 mins to their costumers to keep that freshness, deliciousness and flavours. In addition to this, they provide mini agneethis giving the last bit of dum to the biryanis.

📍📍 NOW COMING TO THE FOOD, I had ordered some of their signature dishes which included-


The rice was well cooked and the meat was well marinated with the traditional spices and masalas which made the dish aromatic. It had a good colour of zaffran and was rich in taste. It contains around 4-5 pieces of succulent chicken and can be easily by two people. It was accompanied by salan, raita and salad.  

◼️ MURG LUCKNOWI BIRYANI (1/2 Kg)- Rs 460/-

Contains 4-5 pieces of succulent chicken marinated in yogurt and herbs, this dish was smooth and light in texture. This can also be shared by 2 people was too accompanied by their in-house salan, raita and salad.  


This platter box included -

🔹Mutton Galouti (3 pcs)

🔹Chicken Seekh Kebab (4 pcs)

🔹Tawa Fish (5 pcs)

🔹Chicken Jamuni Tikka (4 pcs)

All the kebabs were heavenly in taste. The succulent mutton kebabs were moist and soft melting in the mouth at one go. The chicken seekh kebab was juicy, the fried fish was freshly made. Lastly the chicken jamuni tikka, being tangy in flavour and topped with cheese was the best according to me. This box comes along with mint chutney, spicy dip and salad. Also, 2 imli lemonade bottles comes complemetary with this platter. This is a surely must try for non-veg kebab lovers.


This platter box included -

🔹Crispy Corn Stick (3 pcs)

🔹Veg Galouti (4 pcs)

🔹Kaju ki Seekh (4 pcs)

🔹Kasturi Paneer (4 pcs)

Being a non-veg lover, having a veg meal is a bit difficult. But surprisely BBK amazed me with this veg kebab box. The chargrilled paneer cubes was tasty, the cottage cheese kaju ki seekh was overcoated with cashewnuts, the corn sticks were crispy with right amount of spices.This was also accompanied with their in- house mint chutney, spicy dip and salad. Also the 2 imli lemonade comes complemetary with this platter.


BBK makes this special masala sikanji with a perfect mix of spices for the costumers for proper digestion right after having a heavy meal.

◼️ MATKA PHIRNI (1/2 kg)- Rs 285/-

Their matka phirni is probably the best phirni I have had so far! As the name ‘Matka’ suggests, it is served in clay pot to infuse it with the earthy flavor. The phirni is creamy in texture and not as dense as normal firnis. It tasted amazing! Topped with cashew, almonds and pista, the phirni had a perfect balance of saffron and sugar! This can be easily shared by 2-3 people and is surely a must try from here!

◼️ MINI ANGEETHIS (The Aanch) -

With every handi biriyani, they provide you with earthern stove which will help you to provide those extra 8-10 minutes of dum to your biryani right before serving it on the plate. This gives the perfect smoky favour and aroma of spices!


The packaging of BBK is needless to be said. They are known for their mind-blowing spill proof packaging. During this pandemic, they are ensuring zero contact delivery to the costumers following all the safety measures. The delivery was on time which I really liked. Though the price of the dishes is a bit on a higher side, you can surely try here atleast once if you are a biryani lover!
