“What a Biriyani..best in town”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

Arsalan is strictly for casual dining and take-away. Their Biriyani tastes like heaven but the service is very very slow. Well to be honest the restaurant is always overcrowded and so less waiters to serve customers, it's expected.
But people like me who are crazy and drool on their Biriyani keeps on coming back against all odds.
If you are in Kolkata and haven't tasted in Arsalan then what have you done??!! Keep it in list at par with Victoria Memorial.

“Biryanis & Kebabs”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

A frequently visit this place for biryanis, chaps and kebabs. Kebabs are so delicious that they will melt in your mouth. I will die here for chicken biryani, chicken chap and chicken tikka kebabs. I had no issues with hospitality in this joint but don't visit during Week-ends. You will have to wait long

“If it is Biriani it is Arsalan - forget your Blood count for the time being”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

Probably they make the best biriani in town - if you look for a combination of health and test - Alibaba may score better (they do not put Dalda) - but for test only Arsala is miles ahead. Mutton biriani special is worth an order - they have increased the price now to Rs 170. It comes with 2 mutton pieces, 1 egg, 1 potato and the biriani rice.

“Lucknowi Cuisine”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

Must try the chicken korma, kassa mutton, mutton chops and biryani.
The place can do with good cleaning and a paint job. And go to the one below the fly over it is probably the best outlet in terms of cleanliness.
Alas the owners dont seem to care abt the upkeep but the food is FAB!

“Kebab o' clock”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Wonderful food, in a quirky building, at cheap prices.The biryanis, tikka and other kebabs were superb. As we are British,the waitor seemed to think it hilarious to keep walking over, shouting chicken tikka masala at us and running off, which added to the surreal fun! Highly recommended
