I was posted to the Bay area for two months. Ever since I found this restaurant, I had most of my meals at this place only. The dishes were clean, tasty and economically priced. Biryanis are a staple of this restaurant, but I preferred the korma curries (Lamb and chicken) together with their naans and rotis. The place is always... More

One of the best places where you find the original taste of hyderabadi biryani. Visited this place few times . Talking about this place, the ambiance is good. The service is very late. Had chicken biryani which is tasty and Gongura paneer which is out of world with good aroma. Their chicken starters are good.

So all my reviews unless otherwise stated are while I am on a business trip. With expenses. Tip, check out the menu and figure out what you want before hand, otherwise like me you will over order. Next the meals do not come with rice . So I ordered my favourite starters, Samosas if the meal stopped here it would... More

Quite small place to dine in but it is maintained clean and noise levels are relatively low. Mostly we took out chilli chicken and it is awesome.

Try their cut mirchi & veg dum biryani. Especially if you are from Hyderabad, you will droll over these items. Give it a try!

The biryani here tastes awesome and don't forget the ritha with it. The place is bit small but u could go for takeaway. Must try for indian food in bay area. The owner Mr.venkat is a very friendly man who would love to suggest you for any spl items on the menu.

Thank Dilip V
