Excellent beef biryani. Coffee kau with less sugar was also perfect. Very consistent quality from Tok Janggut.

I could say the only place easier to find in Kuching if you're looking for mamak stall. Serving the best and soft roti canai, Roti telur and many other food including briyani. Clean- friendly staff- and fast servings. Reasonable price. Suitable for family and friends. Brrrpppp! 😎👍🏻

There are certain foods that become addictive for their marvellous flavours. Tok Janggut has various roti, biryani rice and curries to capture your tastebuds. Over a period of 3 years I had my Saturday brunch there excepting during Ramadan. Despite an absence of over 6 years, I was greeted like a long lost cousin. All the staff are still there... More

This restaurant has been around for quite long and has been well known and popular for its Beriyani. The best time to visit is just before lunch hour when the food are still hot and available.

If you are a fan of nasi beriyani,this is a plave you should be.The rice is soft and well flavoured with splendid honeyed chicken dish.The price is slightly costly than the other shops but it is worth it.Only that the rice given is small portion

Quite attracted to the Nasi Beranyi with fried chicken tigh. Overall not bad in term of quality of cooking. The Indian rojak are hilghly recommended. The teh tarik are not the best but insist on reducing the sugar solution. Pricing are resonable but place needed better ventilation on air conditioning.

Perfect, not oily, just hot, and very nice. Big portion but as you dig in you will finish it. Perfectly combined with ice lemon tea. Walking distance from Basaga Residence. Perfect for Lunch dates. Clean and friendly staff

I like the 'Teh Tarik' and roti chanai (Roti Pratta). Very tasty at reasonable price.

As local people crazy about the briyani rice, but I don't agreed. The real briyani should cook the meat or chiken or fish with the rice. Should taste with the achar too. If you like briyani rice should go to a muslim cafe in 7th mile, they serve the real briyani and lovely!
