A must visit place if, like me, you love biryani. The Zaffran Chicken Biryani (Rs 395) here is irresistible. Basmati rice slow cooked on dum with saffron milk and succulent morsels of chicken, results in an unparalleled gourmet experience. The unique cooking style is what sets it apart, imparting the aroma and flavours to this biryani. Consistently good. I can never tire of this one!

The Golconda Bowl Mumbai

The Hyderabadi Pakwaan is a preciously preserved culinary art like no other. A-400 year history behind the culinary delights was evolved in the kitchens of the Nizams of Golconda who elevated Ghizaayat (food) to a sublime art form. Hyderabadi cuisine reflects a perfect amalgamation of influence from the Arabic, Turkish, Kayasth, Marathawada and the natives of the Deccan plateau. The Khansamas, highly regarded by the nobles always followed one thumb rule; cooking patiently or ‘ ithmenaan se’ is the key to the perfect creations. Therefore slow cooking is the hallmark of Hyderabadi cuisine. The Golconda Bowl is a tribute to this culinary art. Allow us to take you on a voyage of aromatic delicacies and flirt with your senses. The ‘Dastatkhan’ has been spread so get ready to tantalize your taste buds with the delectable authentic recipes prepared by the genuine Hyderabadi Mezbaan who have mastered the craft of blending the spices, grains, meats, vegetables and cooking style to perfection. Needless to mention, at The Golconda Bowl Hyderabadi Tehzeeb is a routine affair and comes on the house

Times of Biryani

The Murgh Mussallam Biryani (Rs 225) has layers of chicken kheema and tandoori chicken ensconced between flavourful biryani rice. The biryani is not very spicy and yet, palate-tickling. That’s what got my vote. Another must-try here is the Murgh Lahori Sheekh Biryani (Rs 245) with Hot, Spicy Lahori Sheekh! Quite unusual I thought. This biryani is available in chicken and lamb too. With generous portions and finest quality ingredients, this one is set to rock Mumbai. Address: Ratan Nagar, Four Bungalows, Andheri West, Mumbai, Maharashtra
