The familiar taste of home

Pleasant flavours

Started by Subramanya and Shankar Shetty, Biriyani Mane at Jayanagar 9th Block is a popular choice of many non-veg lovers.

Good time : Customers at the eatery.

As the name suggests, the place specialises in biryani, which tastes quite like the home-cooked one.

Serving mainly North-Indian and Andhra cuisine, the place offers chicken, mutton, egg, veg and prawn biryanis. The prices are reasonable with biryanis coming within Rs 100. The eatery is a perfect place for office-goers in the vicinity, who want to grab a quick bite.

The two owners had understood the taste of the people well. Also, there was no place serving reasonably priced biryanis in the area. “If a common man wants to have a chicken or a mutton biryani, he has to go to big hotels and spend a lot of money. Keeping the middle-class in mind, we started this hotel and serves all varieties of biryanis at an affordable price,” informs Shankar Shetty, who looks after the eatery.

“‘Chicken Pepper Dry’, ‘Chicken 65’, ‘Chicken Kebab’, ‘Chicken Hyderabadi’, ‘Butter Chicken’, ‘Fish Masala Fry’ and ‘Rava Fry’ are in great demand and ‘Chicken Lollypop’ is loved by kids,” informs Shankar. The place offers ‘roti’, ‘naan’, ‘kulcha’ and ‘tandoori’ items in the North-Indian section.

There are many takers for Chinese food items as well. Vegetarians need not be disappointed as ‘Veg Biryani’, ‘Paneer Butter Masala’, ‘Veg Kadai’, ‘Veg Kolhapuri’, ‘Veg Fried Rice’, ‘Ghee Rice’, ‘Jeera Rice’, noodles, etc are included in the menu. One cannot miss the Biriyani Mane Special, which is the signature dish here.

“It is prepared in the same way as ‘Dum Biryani’ but we use jeera rice instead of ‘basmati’ rice. And the gravy has a different taste, which is liked by most of our customers,” says Shankar. Most of the time, the place is occupied by families, especially, ladies.

There are customers who opt for home delivery too. Says Pradeep Attavar, a regular customer, “Many times, we hesitate to have non-veg food especially biryanis in small joints due to health concerns. But, Biriyani Mane is an exception.

We keep having the food here and it is always up to the mark. Both chicken and mutton biryanis are pleasantly flavoured and don’t contain much oil. Kebabs are well-smoked,” he adds.

It is the favourite eating place of people who shop at ‘Bangalore Central’ and ‘Big Bazaar’, which are located close by. It gets crowded in the afternoon and evening. Sometimes, customers have to wait for long during the weekends.
Biriyani Mane is open from 11.30 am to 3.30 pm and 6.30 pm to 10.30 pm. The place is located at 1345, South End Main Road, 9th Block, near Central Mall, Jayanagar. For details, call 26585855.
