Hyderabadi Biriyani

I am by no means an expert on Biriyani, but I've been very impressed by the veg and chicken biriyani served up at Hyderabadi House, near the Lifestyle on Richmond Road. It has a small, no frills dining area where you can grab a quick plate. The place is thronged by working men who are often hunched over a plate, enjoying their meal with not a word spoken, oblivious to everything else around them.

To me, the biggest value is in their fast take away service. You can drive up, order for a biriyani, get a parcel in five minutes, and be on your way home to enjoy a lip smacking dinner.

Cost: Rs 50-70
Cleanliness: Average
Quality: Excellent
Service: Excellent
Ambience: Average
Bottomline: Express takeaway biriyani

P.S: They have just opened up another restaurant/take-away joint next to Kemp Fort on Airport Road, which does deliveries.
