Service was ok but considering that the name of the restaurant is Biryani Bowl I would think they would have the best Biryani....in fact it was less than par. I've had so much better.

I had stopped by this restaurant for a take-away order of chicken biryani. While the portion size was ok, there was just too much rice and hardly any meat in the biryani. The biryani was also quite spicy. Even though they provide yogurt on the side, it was still not enough to temper the spice level down. Disappointed.

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.

We had take out today during lunch hour. We ordered shrimp biryani, paneer pasand and naan. Shrimp biryani was bland and did not look like biryani to me, rice quantity was decent but too few pieces of shrimp. Paneer pasand was good, paneer was soft and fresh and a bit sweet. Naan was dry and did not appear fresh( though... More

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.
