Biriyani also known as biriyani, birianibirani or briyaniis a mixed rice dish with meat or vegetables. This is the very popular dish among the Muslims. Still Muslim biriyani is popular which is made during the festivals and marriages. It is made with Indian spices, ricemeat (chicken, goatbeeflamb, prawn, or fish), vegetables or eggs. 

Biryani is as special. If my plan is biriyani for lunch, I use to starve from morning to noon for biryani hunting. (I don't make at home. Only in the restaurant)

There are few specific places which are famous for biriyani and Everyone will have some favorite places to have the tasty biriyani. Below are few places as per mine and my friends experience. 

OverallVellore is the best city to eat flavored biryani. Biryani is wonderful in all the shops here. 

Best biriyani shops are,

1. Ya Mohaideen - Pallavaram , Chennai

2. Vellore Biryani, Vellore Kitchen - Vellore

3. Star Biryani - Ambur

4. RautharMappillai Virundhu - Madurai

5. Green Crest Chennai biriyani. Chennai
     Actual Chennai taste with Brinjal thalcha gravy. Fantastic. 

In many restaurants in Coimbatore used to make like Dindukal biriyani. If the spices are in correct ratio, it will be good. Else we can't expect the proper biriyani. 

6. Delhi Darbar - Peelamedu , Coimbatore. 
    Here biriyani is made in Mogul style (Ambur style) and the taste is very good. 

7. If you still need Dindigul Method Biryani, you can try Ammayi House, RamanathapuramCoimbatore. Here food is made using clay Pots. Biryani Super!

8. Hydrabad Biriyani house - Ooty and Koonur.
    Actual Hyderabadi taste. I have never tasted this kind of tasty food at a tourist site.

9. AGS Biriyani - Tambaram, Chennai.
    A small biryani hotel called AGS Biryani near Irippuliyur By-passTambaram. The taste is fantastic. Get Bucket Biryani (parcel only. Price 800 or 900Rs). Between 10 and 12 people can eat. 

10. Virudhunagar, GN Chetty Road, Chennai
      If you try a little high class, you could try the restaurant called Virudhunagar, GN Chetty road, Chennai. The biryani you get is delicious with a long flavoring of rice. 

11. Dindukal thalappakattu Biriyani , NeelamburCoimbatore. 
      Few days back, we visited the newly opened Dindigul Talapakkaty Biryani Restaurant in NeelamburCoimbatore. Biryani and Thalcha are WOW WOW !. No need to wash your hands with soap after eating biryani. Because the oil is too low. Sometimes or after having some restaurants biriyani, we could feel heavy in the stomach. Here nothing felt. Mutton biriyani cost is 240 and chicken biriyani is 210.

12. Annapoorna Tea coffee bar & Tiffin Center, Raja veedhi and Range goundar veedhicoimbatore. 
It is a small vegetarian restaurant. The mushroom biryani is not available anywhere in the city as you can find here. Such an awesome taste. Around 1/4 plate quantity only they give. Price range from 40 to 50 rupees. But the taste will be for 500 bucks. One or two biryanis we eat. This is the best choice for vegetarians.

13. You can give a try with Dindukal venu biriyani. 

Apart from this, other favorites biriyani like my wife's home made biryani sprinkled with love and charm with homemade ingredients, my own chettinad biryani and biryani tied to Islamic friend's house ceremony. These are available to us free of charge, hot, healthy, and free of charge.

Everyone's taste is different from each other. My favorite is probably not like the other. This is just my experience!
