Oh my God! My search for the real Hyderabadi biryani in Chennai ends at Charminar Gopalapuram. I googled for their contact details and checked to see whether they serve original Hyderabadi dum biryani or only the name and actually serving tomato rice like any other restaurant does. But I was promised to get a refund if it was not real Hyderabadi biryani . To my surprise it was like as if I were inside Bawarchi at Rtc cross road. The only Hyderabadi biryani in Chennai is only here. Also loose prawn fry, wheat parantha, Indian gravies were super. On the whole, now I know where should I go when I need Hyderabadi biryani in Chennai. Thanks to whoever started Charminar.
A typical lazy saturday, driving aimlessly around, we thought lets try out something new and did a quick search on Burrp. Charminar, the name, brought back memories of my stay in Hyderabad. The aroma of biryani passing through paradise hotel is a memory that would never fade away. Lets try it out , says my wife. We wanted to take away. She calls the place and places an order for 1 chicken and 1 fish biryani. We said we would be there in 20 mins. We reached there, the valet inquires and rushes to get our parcel. It starts pouring crazy yet the man gets our food and takes money, all this in heavy rain with only a plastic sheet protecting him. That's an awesome customer service experience. Back home we try the food. It was just awesome. The meat was perfectly cooked. My only grouse would be the quantity. More please. 400 bucks for 2 biryanis is a bit steep considering the quantity. Overall a great experience. PS: the review forces me to rate ambiance to complete it. Giving it a 3 but I have not stepped into the place.
