Biryani Hub

The Biryani Project aims at delivering authentic biryani in Delhi NCR from all over India.
The owners are passionate and have done enough research to make this project successful. Their dedication towards food is amazing.

I ordered half Godavari biryani which was enough for two and was served along with raita which was in a glass jar. Deliver was spot on time and packed well in a handi. Chicken quantity was great as well.

Godavari biryani is a specialty of Andhra Pradesh and chose this one with chicken. It had curry leaves, pan-fried chicken, baghara rice and was prepared in Andhra style. Tried this biryani for the first time and I must say it had too many spices; chicken was cooked to perfection though.

Project Biryani

Also tried their Hyderabadi Biryani which I felt was a little bland. Chicken was fresh and juicy but biryani lacked flavour.
