Had the worst biryani ever in Annanagar savoury sea shells . Almost everything we had tasted bad . The quality has completely gone down . They cite no proper cooking staff as reason for their failure . Taste , & hygiene has taken a big...hit , but prices have skyrocketed. Authorities should keep a check on the price .More

Excellent pepper chicken barbecue and mutton biriyani. Nice shawarma as well. Usually crowded as the place is popular. Enjoyed the lunch despite the very poor service. Pricey for this kind of place.

I arrived in 8 June and I’m looking for the best restaurant for lunch. My friend offered me this restaurant as I like seafood. They offer for seasonal grilled fish and it was so awsome, I like the taste and the texture. I enjoy it...a lot. For the next menu we ordered grilled chicken. Looks so amazing, and when I tasted it, the chiken was so dry and hard to peeled it. The seasoning was good and i can feel it till insede the meat, but I’m not finish it because its so hard to eat it. It’s better to make it more juicy and soft, it will be awsome. Then we oerder hot and sour chiken soup, wooooww it was awsome and warm in my body. I really love the soup.More

We had lunch at this place en route to airport. We were running late and we asked for Prawn Biriyani and keema. They said it would take 5 minutes and believe me guys it was actually delivered in 4 minutes flat. Really prompt and understanding...of customer demands. The prawn biriyani tasted heavenly. Not the typical excessive spicy type. Same was the keema. The keema is not the fine minced once. Coarse mince and tastes excellent. Just right with spices and not bland. A highly recommended place for lunch or dinner. Ambience is good, service is excellent. Quantity is typically 2 plates of biriyani will suffice for 3 people.More
