When traveling its hard to find a good Indian restaurant, Briyani house is my go to restaurant when traveling to Uganda. Everything on the menu reminds me of home and tastes amazing. I could eat there everyday. Love this restaurant

I liked their fish biryani so much that I went there 2 days in a row braving the traffic all the way from Old Kampala. Pleasant outdoor sitting is a bonus.

The food and service were good, plenty of options for vegetarians. This is located in the mzungu area of Kampala and would not fit with a budget traveler. The outdoor seating is pleasant, not many bugs. Great place to relax with a meal.

The food was very good and I enjoyed it. It is not a budget place so even though it is not super expensive it is not budget.

From the service, to the food, to the entertainment- This place is a great place to get Indian food in Kampala. Kampala is jam-packed with great Indian restaurants and eats, and I'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a higher end restaurant!

VIP... not to sure if there was one. This isn't really a club from what I saw, more of a restaurant and if there is a VIP I can't imagine having a price for it.
