“Awesome Biryani...”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

I was told Arsalan had the best Biryani in Kolkata so when I was there, I gave it a try. I ordered Chicken and Lamb Biryani and Knowing that I might get it too Oily, I asked them to give it to me from the TOP of the pot. {All the Oil and Spices tend to settle at the bottom....... from experience and therefore I always ask to get my portions from the Top of the Pot.} The Food was Delicious and I highly recommend this place to any Biryani lovers.

“Too greasy !!”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Went on a lot of recommendations, the biryani was too oily and there was almost a pool of fat at the bottom of the plate.. the othet Indian foods were too spicy and lacked flavour.. I will surely avoid !!
