Summary

“It’s easy to miss this Soho basement” just south of Oxford Street, housing a “really authentic” yearling Indian biryani specialist. Cooked in a heavy pot – the ‘dum’ – “they are available in two sizes, single or sharing, and are topped with a crisp edible topping”. “The simple fit-out of the interior could be improved”, though.

Summary

Limited but positive feedback on this walk-in, late 2016 newcomer in a small Soho basement: fans say it “deserves to be successful, delivering the best biryani in a long time” (cooked in a heavy pot, the ‘dum’ and with a pastry top).
