We tried the village briyani - signature dish, chicken briyani, chicken soup and chicken kahti - wrap. The briyani portion is generous amount for one person however the taste was just average. If you are come with expectation, you might end up with dissapointment. But the chicken kahti wrap was good, worth to try. The soup was full of spices... More

This cafe brings briyani recipe to the next level. Village naan is awesome. Mango lassi is fantastic!

The vegetarian selection is great, as usual for Indian restaurants. The service is prompt and pleasant. The inside of the restaurant is very nice and gives you a view into the kitchen. It is air conditioned and very pleasant.

The service is very good. For the food is usual. Nasi briyani in here a little bit spicy. Small cafe but so many people went here. Price a little bit expensive

I have heard a lot of positive reviews regarding this restaurant but was disappointed after the visit. We ordered the Chicken biryani but the chicken was dry and taste flat. However, the biryani rice was well cooked and flavorful.

If you looking for Briyani, you must try to visit this place and is located somewhere not body will go. Their Briyani is super and their signature chicken soup awesome. Gobi 65 and fried lady fingers are power.

I visited this place for 2nd time last month. I went there for lunch with family. No one to welcome us. We tried to sit down but were told by a lady (looks like owner) to sit down in another table. Very rude. We sat down & after a while the same lady came & told us & another family... More
