Order the murgh dum biryani from Amara, a fairly new Indian restaurant on Salwa Road. This boneless chicken biryani is loaded with rich aromatic spices and packed with flavour. It’s a really good portion and it’s absolutely delicious.

If you’re craving some seafood, try a prawn biryani (jhinga biryani) from The Village. It’s wonderfully spiced with the right amount of heat, sweetness from fried onions and crunch from the cashews. It’s one of the chef’s special dishes.

Our favourite Zaffran Dining Experience might have shut down but you can still get a really tasty meal from Zaffran Café. Since we’re talking about biryanis, the mutton biryani for QR30 is a must-try here.
