These Are The Best Biryanis You’ll Eat In Delhi

1. Mota Pehelwan

There’s no way you can miss this place, even in the maze-like gallis of Chandni Chowk. A super-tiny cubicle-like space, its entrance is marked by a gigantic degchi and an owner who will certainly catc your eye. Mota Pehelwan only sells buffalo (buff) biryani (by weight), and it’s light and fluffy with flaming red chunks of meat thrown in.

Where: Chitli Qabar, Chandni Chowk

Nearest Metro Station: Chandni Chowk

Price: ₹50 per plate (350gm)

2. Andhra Bhavan

Andhra Bhavan—in addition to their usual thali menu and curries—does stellar Hyderabadi chicken dum biryani on Sundays. Pair it with the bheja fry, and your Sunday is sorted. You can even opt for a bout of shopping outside the gate, especially the lady who sells treats from the state: Pickles, banana chips, ravamixes, and even Telugu newspapers.

Where: No. 1, Ashoka Road, Near India Gate

Nearest Metro Station: Khan Market

Price: ₹180 for a plate of biryani

3. Taufeeq Biryani

Further down the lane from Mota Pehelwan, you’ll see a small counter on the left looking like an Old Delhi version of a kiosk. Peer inside, and you’ll see a room full of people digging into their steel plates full of biryani. Again, they only have buff and sell by the kilo.

Where: Chitli Qabar, Chandni Chowk

Nearest Metro Station: Chandni Chowk

Price: ₹160 per kg, ₹40 for one plate

4. Moradabad Ki Mashhoor Biryani Ki Puraani Dukaan

There are two types of biryani to choose from here: chicken and buff. The Moradabadi biryani is a simple one; the basmati rice is long-grained and fragrant, the chicken perfectly tender, with the only visible spices being cumin seeds and thickly chopped green chillies. Simple, and simply delicious.

Where: Dargah Road, Nizamuddin

Nearest Metro Station: Jangpura

Price: Starting at ₹150 per plate

5. Hotel Malabar

Tucked deep inside the colony (you’ll be walking for quite a while) of Sarai Juliana stands Malabar Hotel; a neat and clean little restaurant known for its biryani. The specialties here are the Kappa biryani (buff), prawn biryani and Malabar special chicken biryani, served in pristine white bowls topped with a poppadom and a spoonful of pickle.

Where: A-37A, Sarai Juliana, New Friends Colony, Okhla

Nearest Metro Station: Okhla

Price: Starting at ₹150 for a plate
