Most restaurants in Dubai have opened for in-house dining with regulations in place, of course, yet I still chose to get a takeaway from Golden Biryani Restaurant in Karama. The menu is extensive, and a major plus point is that dishes are available in half and full portions, which makes it easier for the customers to order according to their needs. The prices are very reasonable too.
My dinner started with Mixed Chicken Kebabs, I chose a quarter kilo platter, which contained two pieces of each type of kebab, green chutney and onion salad. The kebabs were soft, juicy, flavourful and the spice level was well-balanced (for an Indian 😉).
Before ordering, I had checked their reviews on Zomato and found many people raving about their Hyderabadi biryani. So I decided to order one, but I was sceptical since the best Hyderabadi Dum biryani I’ve tried till date is from one particular restaurant in Jebel Ali (can’t name it here, but send me a message if you’re curious). I’ve ordered umpteen times from there and am still not bored of it. But I must say, the biryani from here was surprisingly amazing. It tasted exactly how a Hyderabadi Dum biryani should taste like. Looks like the other restaurant has got competition!! Sad part is that Golden Biryani Restaurant doesn’t deliver to Jebel Ali ☹
So, I tried Hyderabadi Mutton and Fish Dum Biryanis. The Hyderabadi flavours were well packed in and the mutton was tender. Highly recommended. Ohh .. and did I mention it came with a half-boiled egg!! You can thank me later 😊 The fish was cooked well too and coated in a deliciously tasting masala, but it had a fishy taste, which put me off a bit.
From the curry corner, I tried half portions of Chicken Achari and Mutton Kalimirch with Tandoori Naans. I absolutely loved the tangy, yet spicy achari chicken and the tempered curry leaves enhanced the flavours. Mutton Kalimirch was tasty and succulent.
Overall, a wonderful experience from Golden Biryani Restaurant and I highly recommend this place for amazing food that is cost effective and where portion sizes suited to each individual are available.
