Unbeatable Chicken Biryani!

Of all the Indian dishes out there, the Chicken Biryani is certainly one of the most popular. It may be the delicate spicing or the fact that it already comes with fragrant, flavoursome rice that makes it such a favourite with curry fans.

And the great news is that in Dubai we're spoilt for choice when it comes to places that cook up a mean biryani. Here are just some of the very best of them.

1. 25 Degrees North

Taking its name from the latitude of Dubai – 25 degrees north of the Equator – the restaurant brings you the very best of North Indian cuisine using the freshest ingredients and authentic herbs and spices. The result is a menu that not only contains an excellent chicken biryani but many other delights too to create what they describe as an "unforgettable culinary experience".

2.Mint Leaf of London

Let's get moving with the main courses. Yes, if you didn't know that already, everything you saw until now were just starters from the Chef's tasting menu at Mint Leaf of London. Chicken Chettinad, as the name suggests captures the essence of South Indian regional flavors through its flavorful Chettinad masala mix. Boneless chicken thigh pieces, which I have learned are more juicy, are cooked in a coconut based curry with these aromatic spices. The curry is served with a side of another South Indian staple - Lemon Rice - which combines basmati rice with lime juice and is finished with a tempering of whole red chillies, mustard seeds and curry leaves. When served, the chicken pieces are placed over a bed of Lemon Rice and the creamy curry is then poured around the rice making it the perfect comfort chicken dish. Don't miss that crunchy kataifi garnish on top. This one was my favorite from the mains, primarily for its chicken content, and those whole red chillies, which I kept popping one after the other, until my taste buds were on fire. Definitely ordering this again on my next visit. . . . . . . . . . . . #indubai #prdubai #dubaipr #dubailife #dubaiblog #dubaiblogger #dubaitag #blogger #bloggerlife #lifestyle #truetotaste #rashidareviews #mintleafdxb #mintleafoflondon #indianfood #indiancuisine #newmenu #pradeepkhullar #celebritychef #emiratesfinancialtowers #difc #rice #chicken #lemonrice #chettinad #curry #coconut #lemon #redchilli #southindian

High up on the 15th floor of the Emirates Financial Towers, Mint Leaf of London's food is as good as the views with an extensive menu and alongside the chicken variety they also offer lamb, prawn and vegetable biryani served on dum. While you're dining, also take a moment to admire the stylish slate interior with carved wood inspired by the traditional decorations of India.

3.Soy To Chutney

New addition to our menu, coconut rice! Which curry do you think goes well with it? #coconutrice #baysquare

Visit Soy to Chutney and you'll soon see why it's chosen this name. The restaurant gives you the choice of either Indian or Chinese cuisine, or a mixture of both if you want to vary your starter and main course. Or maybe you fancy a different twist on a rice and chicken dish, in which case, the special Fried Rice Chicken would make an excellent choice.

4.Royal Kebab

Royal Kebab is part of Kitchen Lab, one of the fastest-growing restaurant groups in Dubai. They pride themselves on offering post-modern cuisine designed to appeal to a range of tastes. When it comes to biryani, the choices here are one of the widest available, including chicken, egg, vegetable, mutton and two different kinds of prawn – and there's plenty more on the menu to enjoy too, including their famous kebabs.

5.Bombay Brasserie

Part of the Taj Hotel, the Bombay Brasserie is a great combination of the classical and the contemporary and features a dramatic open kitchen where you can watch your delicious curries and other dishes being prepared. Under Chef De Cuisine Ajay Negi the menu ranges from traditional dishes like murgh biryani to exciting new flavours like papdi chaat with multigrain crisps, purple potatoes and pomegranate.

6.7 Spice London

A sister restaurant to Royal Kebab from the Kitchen Lab Group, 7 Spice London takes its inspiration from the sorts of curries that are especially popular in the UK. In honour of a city that's famous for the dish they even offer a Bradford biryani selection with the choice of chicken, egg, vegetable, prawn, beef and lamb. Plus they also offer a special dish called "Ye Olde English Butter Chicken"!
