Grand Hotel


Biryani was brought to Hyderabad by the invading Mughal army of Aurangazeb. Since traditional Indian foods such as roti, rice, curries, and soups would be too time consuming to prepare and eat in times of war, the biryani was developed to get quick food to the troops. The blending of Mughlai and Telengana cuisines resulted in the Grand Hotel. It is made from goat meat (mutton) and basmati rice, although you can get a chicken or veg varitey as well. Other ingredients include yoghurt, onions, saffron, and spices.

Cafe Bahar


One of the best places to gets your hands on some amazing fish biryani. It’s as fresh as it can be and tastes divine! The Chicken and mutton biryani are absolutely fabulous too where the spice levels are just right and not overtly done like a few other restaurants. Opt for take away rather than settling there as the ambience is crowded and chaotic!

The Dum ka Biryani is to die for at this place near Panjagutta circle. The ambience and setting is just average. Usually if you notice, most of the not-so-good places (ambience wise) are the ones that serve some of the best biryanis! I guess they focus on the quality and taste of food rather than anything else.

Cost for two: INR 700


best biryani in hyderabad It started from a simple chai shop to this huge chain of multi-cuisine restaurants. As you enter the restaurant, you see the history of Paradise and all the celebrities’ signatures, which have come and gone a happy customer. What’s special about this place is the Biryani, ranging from family packs to combo and extra masala biryani. If seated at the restaurant, you can order a family plate where they serve you a huge (And I mean, really huge) serving for eight to ten people. It follows the tradition of sharing, very similar in Islam culture.  The mutton biryani is supposed to be scrumptious but if you like chicken then it’s equally good. The vegetarians get the treat of plan biryani without the meat. The side dishes like mutton curry and mirchi ka saalan are mildly spiced so it would not over take the tang of biryani from you. Their take-always have a long queue but the delivery is instant.  It’s what I call the fast food of Hyderabad. Paradise is spread out in the city now. If you stay in Hi-tech or Abids, you can find it now very near to you. My favourite is especially is the secunderabad restaurant. Where: General Choudhuri Rd, NCC Ground, Gunrock Enclave, Secunderabad Call: 04066661199 Cost for two: INR 900

These are a few options you have to fill your senses with the best biryani in hyderabad. It’s a great way to start your feel to the city of Hyderabad and it makes up a hectic day at work or way to celebrate a day with friends.

Feel Royal with these delectable cuisine!
