A Briyani Paradise

We started off the dinner with soups and starters. Again a lot being said of their Manchow Soup, I opted for it. It was spicy and had crunchy noodles on. This would be my personal preference when I visit them the next time. You do get a non vegetarian version of this soup, which is Chicken Manchow soup. It has shredded chicken along with vegetables.
We had close to 4 starters. Each one with a varied taste and flavors Paneer Tikka and Achari Aloo Tikka Majestic Baby Corn.
This dish was way to sour for my tongue. Some how it did not suit my palette. I had a piece and then passed on to the next dish. But this was a hit dish, in the recent Star Vijay Awards function as told by Charminar s PR Vidya. They had made a slight variation using Prawns to Baby Corn. Vegetarian Shangrila is the meatless version of sheek kebab. Its mashed vegetables made on tandoor using skewers. Tasted like cutlets in a different form and had a predominant flavor of cinnamon. It tasted good with the mint chutney.
When you visit Charminar, do not ever forget to order the Yellow Dal. It was just superb. Perfect for Lacha paratha and to eat it just like that. The texture, color and taste were all just perfect.

One of their signature dishes, Charminar Vegetable Subzi was again a standout dish in the showcase. It was spicy and had a lot of veggies (psst: I always like a lot of veggies in my food).
Showstopper for the whole dinner, Briyani : Spicy, flavorful and cooked to the perfect consistency. I love their Briyani, be it vegetable or paneer.
Dessert was Double Kaa Meeta, bread cooked with Khoya , loaded with cashews, raisins and cherries and drizzled with generous portions of ghee. Perfect dessert to end with.

Charminar - authentic !

This is the best place for Hyderabadi biriyani!
Really tasty food and good service. The place is situated in Lloyds road.
Their chicken biriyani can be customised according to preferred level of spiciness. Their mutton biriyani is fabulous and a meat lovers delight !
They also offer extensive vegetarian dishes that can be paired ideally with butter naan.
Good food, good quality and affordable too.
Finally, a decent biriyani joint for Chennai foodies.
