After spending $21 at McDonald's for dinner one night, I checked out Biryani cart and got an excellent biryani dinner for only $6. 100% recommended, great food and prices.

Food carts are awesome in NYC. The Biryani cart does an AMA zing job of making authentic dishes in such a small space.

I usually get chicken biryani with all of the sauces. You will find that it actually has all of the ingredients like cinnamon, star anise and other spices that you will find as you eat it. For $7, it is one of the best meals you will have in the city.

This was my 6th visit to this food cart ( avg 2 visits every NYC trip) and if you are anywhere near the 6th and 46th, this is definitely a must visit.
The food is delicious, freshly prepared and has the genuine Indian flavors to it. It’s reasonably priced and one plate easily makes a filling meal for a single person. The only down side is that there is no place to sit to relish the hot meal (a common factor with all food carts) but Times Square is just a min or two away or one can always find a bench at walking distance.

Beware of copy cats! There is only one real Biryani Cart and it is awesome! I found it through trip advisor and the ratings are well deserved, the Biryani is really good, I had it two days in a row! Very convenient location for tourists ,right near Times Square, tried the Kati rolls too which weren’t anything special but would definitely recommend the Biryani.
