ESAIT Biriyani, Tambaram - ★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆

Category: B

2 branches located within a 1 km radius, clearly shows the high demand for this biriyani in this area.

Located a couple of kms off the GST road, this shop is one of the most happening food places in Tambaram. They have both chicken and mutton biriyani, and along with this, you can also order some chicken 65 if you like.

This biriyani has very good flavour and fills you up very easily. But on the down side, it is a little dry and that may put you off. And also, I felt this one had too much of removables (tomato, biriyani leaves etc) in it. This was quite unusual for a ambur style biriyani.. And also the meat to rice ratio wasn't quite satisfying. One would expect a little more meat to be there..

The biriyani is served along with brinjal curry and onion raitha (no surprise there)

The Menu - simple and straightforward!
Having visited this place more than a couple of times, I would say that the mutton biriyani is definitely better than the chicken.

As far as the prices are concerned, many might say it is nominal, but I would say it is a little on the higher side (refer menu) for the ambience, quantity etc.

Although it is a small place with limited seating, the place is quite buzzing, especially around peak lunch time and dinner time. and you keep in mind that they run out of mutton biriyani very quickly. Since this place is near tambaram, it wouldn't be a bad idea to pay a visit and take away a few packets if you are starting a road trip on GST.

The road is very wide and parking is not a concern at all. Although this is the case only with one of the 2 branched. The other one is located right under the flyover (mentioned below).

My rating: ★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆

How to reach there: From tambaram main bus stand, go straight towards perungulatur (further down on GST) and take the first left. Take the flyover. once you get down the flyover, travel for 1 to 1.5 kms and you will find the shop on your left.
