I was wow by the biryanis in Arsalan. Had gone there with a couple of friends and I loved it. I am not a biryani lover as such but chicken biryani was too good. Though the place was quite crowded and noisy but all fine.

Excellent mughlai dishes served with passion. The Biriyani especially, tastes fabulous. This is because it's not too oily or spicy like in most other places. They also avoid artificial taste enhancers (like fragrance). The chicken chaap is a must - something you cannot do without as an accompanying dish. I have tasted this dish in several other food joints but... More

No complains about food... best Biryani ever... I've had Lucknowi biryani (I'm from Lucknow), Hyderabadi Biryani, special Biryanis of many restaurants of Mumbais, but nothing beats Arselan Biryani. All preparations are finger licking good... So if you are a foodie, you should go and eat in Arselan. If you dont like to wait in queue, order a takeout and eat... More

Searching for a great Biriyani, I am glad I was introduced to Arsalan by friends ! They have by far the best Biriyani in Kolkata, their art is to prepare this dish with minimal oil and maximum flavor. There kebabs are also very good! My experience with Arsalan has been home delivery and I understand that they also cater for... More

Arsalan is known for great biriyanis, melt in mouth kebabs, rolls, rezala......... the list is endless. Love this place for the taste of the food they serve. The dine in is very cramped and not very clean. It is better to pack your food and have it in the comfort of your home. I love their biriyani, mutton pasinda, chicken... More
