Fried onion, gravy and spice combination is unique to this bawarchi.. I like the slight bitterness and perfect mix of spices without making it bland are too spicy... I prefer this anytime over paradise or cafe bahar...

Try out this place, though you would not find this place decent enough to sit & eat but you could always take a parcel. You could find auto drivers having biryani here & rich guys & girls in audi & bmw taking parcels after their drinks

Forget everything about ambience, service and other frills. The chicken biriyani is among the best. There are many other restaurants that have imported the word 'Bawarchi' as an extended name (for example 'Green Bawarchi', 'Airport Bawarchi' etc). Steer clear of them.
