Reviewed 4 September 2018 via mobile

This is one of the iconic eateries to visit while in Lucknow. Idris biriyani is synonymous with Lucknow biriyani. Shop is bit old and bit low on hygiene standards but biriyani is flavorful and keep ups the name of the place. Really old shop with limited seating place. Take away recommended.

Yes, they don’t have a place to sit or even stand; yes their shop is a cramped hole in a wall; yes it doesn’t even have a board or menu....
But....

The Mutton Biryani, the Mutton Korma is flawless. You will definitely return here many times.

The Biryani is not Dum Biryani, so no bold taste. However in Lucknow you will rarely find Dum Biryani. There is a different style of cooking Biryani where very few spices are used and concentration of the cook is to infuse as many flavours as possible. As a result the Biryani will look plain simple yellow coloured Biryani, but just one spoon and you will be a fan. You will be amazed how many flavours, aromas, tastes have been packed in the rice itself. The Mutton is super juicy and soft. Not even a single strand of stretchy muscle.

Also super inexpensive. Stomach full for 3 adults in under ₹500.

However be warned, everything gets over by 7:30-8:00 PM. Go early or go with strong luck. Since they don’t serve food for making profit, hence the stock is limited.

you will not believe the famous Idris biryani on the first look of the shop. Biryani is tasty and good enough and the shop and surrounding is dirty and messy. So yeah definatly there is no clean place to sit. for your help it should be noted that biryani is prepared after 12:00 noon. before that one can enjoy korma and nihari with roti.

There is no sign board so you can't recognize the place at once and it look shabby too, there are no chairs, just benches and a little big table to accommodate 10 persons, but the Mutton Nihari and Chicken Biryani is too good to describe. One must eat the Nihari at Idris sho.
