The style of biriyani cooked in Kolkata is by far the best I have ever had and the best place in Kolkata to have biriyani is hands-down Arsalan. You can very much figure out the popularity of the place from the queue which forms outside the restaurant during Lunch and Dinner irrespective of whether it is a work day or... More

I stay quite close to the Restaurant at Park Circus. I have tried all of its Biriyani's. The Best I liked is Chicken Biriyani with Rezzala as side dish. I am not a fan of mutton in general so I didn't like Mutton Biriyani that much. I always ordered take away so cant tell about the restaurant staff, service etc... More

Best biriyani in this part of the world! Not to be compared with other types of biriyanis available all over India and I do not want to enter into any argument whether the Arsalan biriyani is authentic or not! Tastes fabulous and the best in Kolkata!

I must confess I have a soft corner for Biryanis. I am forever in search of the 'perfect' Biryani in Calcutta. I mean of course the Awadhi Biryani. Ever since the decline of Shiraz's Biryani, I have been patronizing Arsalan. Their service is 'rude' at the best, but their food makes up for it. However, I was dismayed at the... More

One of the best places for trying the East Indian style biriyani. Don't compare with Awadhi or Hyderabad biriyani, as each has its own style. Just savor the taste. They could improve the sitting accommodation a bit better though as the place tends to get crowded often.
