Best biriyani in town. The Special biriani with two pieces of meat is especially attractive. SP is their rezala and chaap. Mostly eaten takeaways, but friends vouch its a good ambience. In fact I would vote for Arsalaan biriyani over any hyderabadi biriani any day!

The food they serve is good but you are sure to experience indifference on the part of the staff. You can enjoy eating out there but you have to compromise with the feeling of being an unwanted guest.

Ordered biryanis and other items, they are very tasty compared to other biryani joints in kolkata. It is very crowded, cleanliness needs lots of improvement. Very congested, you can not seat properly. Service of the waiters are ok.
