Dum Pukht ITC, Andheri

As the name of this restaurant suggests, they specialise in the slow-cooked, scrumptious Dum Pukht Mutton Biryani, an Awadhi delicacy. Their biryani is cooked in authentic metal handis, with coal and wood-fire, to retain the smokiness and the juice of the meat and vegetables. The price of biryanis in their menu is slightly on the higher end but it is so very worth it, guys. A biryani will set you back INR 2150 here.
