Taste of authentic Malabari biriyani with a Suleimani and date pickle. But food tends to get over on heavy days and the waiting time is then almost an hour. Good place for families with a clean functional ambience.

Ajwa has started its journey 8 years back from a small take away counter to present establishment in the city by giving mouth watering biriyani to its customers and only by your support we are here now. In "Ajwas Kitchen", we only have professional chefs those hail from Malabar who prepares the food with utmost care and love to give you the most authentic taste and best dash of juicy biriyani. Because we focus only on " Biriyani " thats our signature dish we dont compromise on that. We use pure Ghee not oil , and all the ghee once used is disposed. More out from business its a food we prepare not only for customers but for our friends and families too. So we prepare them in utmost care and love. We believe most of our customers has seen our Master Clean kitchen and we are grounded by their cheering reviews. We at Ajwa are really happy with our servings with our customers and seeing their cheerful faces with satisfaction leaving our restaurant. Thank you all for your Love & Support. Ajwa Management.
