The best of the "Bengali" Mughlai

The crowds (at Park Circus) justify its popularity and difficult to get a seat so suggest takeaway. The special biriyani with egg and potato is a big hit, all the kababs are fresh. Beware of the spice and oil which are favourites with the locals in preerence to the drier less spicy varieties... read more

Biriyani was not that good according to its reputation. Always busy, I had to stand in a que to get a seat. Then I took a parcel which was very quick.

If you cannot taste or be poor at mutton, you should go this restaurant. Actually, my wife's the first time for taste Mutton Biriyani. She decided to back in this restaurant in next year, soon! Tandori menus are soft and crispy, great taste. Prices are good, thanks to Arsalan! Can I purchase cool unform??

Have the mutton biryani with mutton chap and get the out of the world experience! The take-away biryani is made separately, you'll not get that taste in take-away.

There's nothing much to say about Arsalan. Its one of the best places to eat at Park Circus area not to mention one of the best Moghlai cuisine eateries in this city. I have never found their dishes to be below par on any occasion not even when there's a long queue outside the place. We ordered Chicken Biryani and... More

Me and my Officemates are visiting almost every month here, just for Biryani. Food quality is very good, serving time is slightly late. Foods are not expensive. Ideal place for friends and young people.
