Biryani connoisseurs would certainly agree when I say, “Saari duniya ek taraf aur Biryani ka Pyaar ek taraf”. Such is our crave for this cuisine which is said to be brought to India by the Mughals. Though this is debatable, we don’t really care; whoever got it to India, WE THANK YOU. Be it Delhi, Mumbai or Kolkata nothing can outnumber a Hyderabadi Biryani that has a distinct blend of masala, the way the spices are blended together and the succulent tender cooked meat all intricately infusing a distinct Persian flavor to it, unmatched by any other.

So here is a list of awesome Biryani Joints one just can’t miss when in Hyderabad.

1. Shadab

Opening Hours: 4 PM to 4AM
Address: Ghansi Bazaar: 21, Opposite Madina Building, High Court Road, Hyderabad 500002
Cost: Rs. 700 (for two people approx)
Telephone No: 040 33165122

If there is one restaurant that tops the charts in the art of making and serving Biryani it is undoubtedly Hotel Shadab, a Non-Vegetarians delight. Nestled within the hustle bustle of Charminar, Shadbad is a tightly packed place whenever you go. Shared tables crowded ambience, lots of noise and amidst all this, the smell of mutton, korma and of course Biryani that wafts in the air. If you love variety in your humdrum non-veg cuisine, Shadab is the place.

Go alone, with friends or family, even if you have to wait for a table do so, because you simply cannot go without eating here.

2. Café Bahar

Opening Hours: 11 AM to 12 Midnight
Address: Basheer Bagh: Old MLA Quarters, Hyderguda, Basheer Bagh, Hyderabad
Cost: Rs. 550 (for two people approx)
Telephone No: 040 23243798, 040 23237605

Café Bahar is one of those joints where one can have more than their stomachs fill and yet not worry about depleting their pockets. The distinct feature of the Biryani here is that is topped with boiled eggs. There is no clear winner; both the meat and chicken Biryanis are equally exquisite. Adding to that you should also try Qubani Ka Meetha at the end of your meal and you’re bound to leave satiated.

3. Pista House
