Wandered into here as from the outside it looked decent and popular, however we discovered it has very few veggie options. Staff were really nice and made a couple of great veggie options for us but they weren't on the menu.

Less than Rs 150 for a biriyani for either chicken or mutton. There is prawn biriyani too. You may not get seats for 20 people at one go as it is very popular.
