8 Best Biriyanis in Chennai!

Warning: Will cause HUNGER!

Ente Keralam

While Tamil Nadu biryani are aplenty, Kerala biryani, too, tops this list and no place better than the quaint Ente Keralam. Mildly spiced, the iconic ET biryani hails from the town of Thalassery in Kerala. Kappa biryani, made of tapioca, is another dish that restaurant goers would enjoy, a dish that’s a major departure from the usual fare in Chennai. The accompaniments include beef fry, raw onions, or seafood curry. With three ETs in Chennai, it’s always best to book a table especially during festival seasons.


Bazaar, Grand by GRT Hotels

When it comes to biryani, Bazaar at T Nagar’s Grand by GRT Hotels tops the list for the most lip smacking biryani at the fine dining level. The price is a bit steep but worth every penny, with the quantity and flavour superseding your expectations. The mutton biryani is lathered with desi ghee and the aroma that wafts in the air is enough to tease your tastebuds. If you are ever in the mood to treat yourself, the Bhai Biryani is worth the try!

Bai Veetu Kalyana Biryani

Launched just before the lockdown, this new biryani place has really become popular. They specialise in wedding style biryani and have fans all over the city. They also run a biryani kiosk where you can select and place an order yourself. They have a variety of options to choose from Kozhi biryani to Varutha Kozhi biryani, Aatu Erachi Biryani (mutton) and fried snacks for sides.
