Biryani is like my Achilles heel! I cannot not eat it – the meaty goodness and the delicious aromas of it beckons me, and I follow as if under a spell. If you love biryani as much as me, here are the 5 best biryani places in Bangalore.
Hyderabad Biryaani House, Old Airport Road | Richmond Town and three other outlets
Must Try Dishes – Mutton Biryani, Dum Biryani, Hyderabadi Biryani
Although the ambiance of this biryani house is very basic, it wins brownie points when it comes to their gorgeously spiced biryanis. If you are a meat lover, you will love their Mutton Biryani that comes loaded with spices. Do not fret if you are a vegetarian because their vegetarian biryanis are delectable too.
Meghana Foods, Residency Road | Koramangala 5th Block and three other outlets
Must Try Dishes – Paneer Biryani, Egg Curry, Andhra Biryani, Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani
Meghana Foods definitely lives up to the hype – it is one of the best biryani joints all over Bangalore. Offering you a wide range of non-vegetarian and vegetarian biryanis, Meghana Foods is known for its delicious flavours. The Hyderabadi Biryani served here is simply fantastic – the rice and meat are sprinkled with saffron and spices and slow-cooked together. No one can forget the garnish of fried onions/birishta, it is possibly the most important element of a biryani!
Kolkata Biryani, Marathahalli | Whitefield
Must Try Dishes – Bengali Biryani, Mutton Biryani, Chicken Biryani, Chicken Chaap
Tired of eating your regular biryanis and want to try something different? Order the Bengali version from Kolkata Biryani (as this is only a delivery place) and it will definitely jump to the top spots on your list of favorites. While meat is generally present in this traditional version of biryani, it is the potato and egg that give it the authentic Kolkata taste!
Rayalaseema Ruchulu, Indiranagar
Must Try Dishes – Andhra Chicken Dum Biryani, Chittimuthyala Kodi Biryani, Gongura Chicken
If you are a foodie in Bangalore, just the name of this restaurant is enough to make your mouth water. Serving authentic Andhra cuisine, Rayalaseema Ruchulu is the place to be to try delicious and flavorful biryanis. As this place is usually busy, booking your table in advance is always recommended.
Nagarjuna Restaurant, Residency Road | Koramangala 5th Block and three other outlets
Must Try Dishes – Hyderabadi Biryani, Chicken Biryani, Andhra Biryani, Mutton Biryani
Opened in 1984, Nagarjuna Restaurant has been treating people with its yummy Andhra cuisine since decades. With five different outlets all over the city, you have ample opportunity to try the Andhra Biryani here. Be careful though – along with tender meat, you will also find loads of chilies in true Andhra-style! The best part about this place is that the food rates here are extremely reasonable.
