Good stuff are worth waiting for!
Furnishing in black tables and chairs gave it a classy look. Water is left on the table in green beer bottles and served in metal cups. There are usually 3 side dishes in the front of the store for you to help yourself while waiting. Both are warning sign of long waiting time.
Claypot briyani is the best and must to have. I prefer the chicken compared to the Mutton and Fish options. Average waiting time for claypot dishes is 20 minutes. You have to be there before 12 noon for lunch otherwise there will be no claypot briyani left!
The spiciness of the briyani depends on the cook's mood, but I leave no chance and would remove the chilis once food is served, I find the spiciness more bearable this way. As the claypot would be hot and the longer you leave the chilis in it, it gets more spicy. Order their yoghurt drink to ease the burning sensation but be warned its a generous serving!
Order all items together else you need to walk to the waiter to get their attention.
