The best Hyderabadi Biryani joint

The iconic biryani point has been service people for decades, Must visit for biryani lovers it simply could not get any better than this, while Biryani is the heart of this place do try other dishes as they are equally delicious

As we climbed up to the Aircondioned section the ambience nothing to talk about... More
