Amongst various types of biryanis you would have had, the Bengali biryani has a distinctive flavour. Add to that one whole potato and a boiled egg, and voila...you have the complete package. Arsalan, is a good place to have your no nonsense biryani, cooked in typical Bengal style. Decent decor... read more

Went to this restaurant after hearing from others about their biriyani, to my surprise the biriyani was not at all tasty, even the way they behave with guest is very bad, when you don't order for a good amount. Overall experience is not satisfied.

They have variety of biriyani and tandoori items on their menu. They also serve Chinese (I have never seen anyone ordering them). They have few... More
