“Entering the Limca Book of Records and being rated as the Restaurant Serving Best Biryani by the Asia Food Congress give us twin joy, and a testament to the love our loyal customers shower on us.”

It started selling biryani in the early 1960s and slowly grew in popularity, becoming known for Hyderabadi cuisine. In the 2010s, it expanded to other cities in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
It also bagged the award for ‘Restaurant serving the best Biryani’ at the Asia Food Congress held in Mumbai. It also got ‘Swiggy Public Choice for Biryani – Delivery’ award, Wall Street Journal’s ‘Best Hyderabadi Biryani’ and the Telangana State Hotels Association (TSHA) ‘Pride of Hyderabad’ award.
