The interiors adorn paintings of Hyderabad city and ceilings are covered with glass lanterns that add a Nizami touch to the place.
The menu comprises a number of vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian dishes. However, the star here is non-vegetarian food, of course. There are a number of street-style starters, main course and of course, biryani. Fortunately enough, the restaurant serves it's majority dishes with an option of full and half quantity. If you are going in a group of two or three and planning to start with appetisers, we'd suggest you go for the half option as the quantity is more than enough. This same option of half and full is provided in their biryani as well. If you are planning for a party, you can also select form their bulk order option, which starts at INR 420.
From the choices that we had, we started off our meal with Hyderabadi chicken lollipops. With the first bit, we were immediately teleported to a restaurant in Hyderabad. Crispy, juicy and perfectly blended with spices, this chicken was a real treat and a great start to our meal. Skipping the gravies, we jumped on to the biryani. We called for their two signature, mutton and chicken biryani. They serve their biryani with a portion of raita and mirchi ka salan. Both these sides add to the amazing taste of the biryani.
Their biryani is made to perfection. Without adding loads of masala or spices, it's a perfect recipe. In the mutton biryani, the meat was perfectly cooked and wasn't chewy, which generally happens. Their chicken biryani was also made to delightful. The meat was easily getting removed from the bones and was tender and juicy. With every bite in their biryani, we were more adamant to cheat on our diet plans. On an average, a meal for two will cost around INR 800.
