Just Biryani, Just Biryani is good enough here!
Just Biryani is a small restaurant in Oshiwara, Mumbai. The place portrays itself to be a biryani-lovers haunt but it offers a lot more than just biryani. But since it was just biryani we were after, didn’t bother with the starters. Being small, the tables are bit too close to each other but there is enough distance between each table to maintain a certain level of privacy. We went on a weekday so didn’t have to worry about booking a table or waiting in line.
Less crowds and relaxed waiters led to better service and eventually happy customers. We were served with their regular appetizers, a rolled up papad and chutney and onions.
In the meantime we ordered for Prawns Biryani. The good thing about the biryani here is that it is prepared when ordered so the taste is fresh. There are places which Biryani on an assembly line where the taste isn’t exotic anymore and feels like one is eating a regular chicken and rice combination. Thankfully, Just Biryani didn’t put us through that ordeal.
The biryani tasted really good but the quantity of prawns was disappointing. Wished they’d put double the quantity of prawns in the biryani because for Rs.176, it seems way to expensive! The Biryani was accompanied by Aloo Pudina Raita which tasted a bit like the green chutney was more sharp and helped digest the extra spicy biryani.
Anyways, besides the biryani we also ordered for a glass of thick Lassi and Fresh Lime soda. The drinks were standard fare.We finished off with a Misti dohi which was more like Shrikhand with a sharp taste!
We only had biryani and a couple of drinks but paid nearly Rs.400 for the meal, which I think, is expensive. I have been here earlier and it is safe to say that Chicken Biryani is a better, cheaper bet as not many can pull off a satisfactory Prawns Biryani.
