Arabs, Turks, Mughals chale gaye, Biryani chod gaye!


And, we thank god for that. We have much to thank the Muslim community for, Ghalib’s Urdu, Eid’s sewai but, biryani tops the list. Over the years, biryani has become part of Delhi’s daily diet and everyone has their version of it. Let’s surf through some of the best Biryani places in Delhi-NCR.

A perfect way to start the list of the best biryani places in Delhi-NCR is with a franchise that has taken over the city with almost 21 outlets. Yes, we are talking about none other than Biryani Blues. Their menu includes the classic – veg, chicken and mutton biryani, biryani handis, and new variants like soya, paneer, kheema, and Chicken 65 biryani.

Majeed’s only does Chicken and Mutton biryani (and matar pulao) and delivers it warm in their good ol’ handis. When you order from this takeaway joint, expect fragrant rice, tender chicken/mutton pieces, and flavours so good that you’d be longing for another portion. Biryani from Majeed’s is goodness meant to be shared. So, order for your whole family and enjoy a hearty meal.

A casual dining restaurant that goes by the name specialises in biryani and some delicious mutton dishes. The seating area is small and the ambience is more like a dhaba. In case, you don’t feel like leaving the comfort of your home, you can order their food online. Taking care of hunger pangs till as late as 4:00 AM, Oberoi Biryani is also praised for its stylish presentation.

You can bring out your inner Punjabi for their flavourful biryani and the amazingly cheap booze. They also offer a free beer tower if you can finish the first one in 15 minutes. You'll also find students here since it's right opposite the IIT gate. For sides, you can try their shorba (tomato and kadak murga) and a variety of salads.

We vouch that the delicious flavours and satisfaction you'll get here are incomparable to any other dhaba. It is hidden away in the by-lanes of Connaught Place and has been whipping out delicious plates of biryani for almost 42 years. The interiors aren’t exactly inspiring, but it is worth ignoring this bit for the best flavours. Order from their selection of biryani, our personal favourites being the Mutton Biryani. Other options worth considering are Mutton Rogan Josh and seekh kebab.

For all the biryani lovers, this eatery should be your ultimate destination. This place in Delhi-NCR has maintained its reputation for serving authentic Hyderabadi biryani. With a wide range of scrumptious starters, North Indian cuisine and biryani dishes, the restaurant caters to all palates. A must-visit to enjoy a delectable meal, finishing it off with their famous Khubani ka Meetha dessert.

They have a nice decor, and they serve biryani in earthen pots for authentic vibes. How cool is that? They also have diet biryani in their menu, something we feel all health junkies should try.

Orza is a casual dining restaurant serving delicious Kashmiri preparations. A great place in Khel Gaon Marg, it is praised for the stylish presentation and is nice to visit when one is looking to satiate their hunger pangs with hygienic food. You must try their Pakki Biryani and Berry Pulao.

Kolkata Biryani House offers some of the spiciest biryani in town. Available in chicken and mutton variants, it makes for a perfect meal for the hardcore non-vegetarians. Given the variety of street food available in Chittaranjan Park, we’re sure you’ll find something to counter all the spices; some mishti doi, perhaps?

Coming from Hyderabad, the land of biryani, this chain does not disappoint. The restaurant serves an array of authentic Mughlai delicacies, however, biryani is one of their specialties. The spacious and cosy ambience makes it perfect to dine in. Best part? The pocket-friendly pricing. The Zaffrani Kebab, Kalmi Kebab and Hyderabadi Biryani are must haves here.

Andhra Bhavan is the destination for authentic Hyderabadi Dum Biryani. Even though it's only served on Sundays, it's insanely popular. So if you haven't had biryani at Andhra Bhavan, then you don't really know what true happiness is.
