  1. SS HYDERABADI BIRYANI missing in the list.. and next… Thalapakatti with It’s Creamy raitha and Kalyana Biryani’s spread … Pls include them ?

    1. Thank you for the suggestion. SS hyderabadi biryani was actually in my list too, but missed including it. Added now.

  2. Salem RR Briyani in Porur, Velachery, Tambaram and maduravoyal is missing in this list… It’s mutton briyani is unbeatable…

  3. Sankranthi in Anna Nagar and Charminar in Chemmencherry also serve really good biryanis. Their must try are the boneless chicken biryanis.

  4. Camproad Aasife biriyani and Tambaram Salem. R. R. Briyani is missing in the list

  5. There is a koorai kadai biriyani in sholinganallur.. check it out.. awesome compared to above list..

    First one is star biriyani in vadapalani (not velachery).. Top one.

    Second one I prefer this koorai kadai.. check it out guyz.. you love it.
