Who makes the most authentic chicken biryani in Austin?

    Asiana, but go with lamb instead of chicken

      Thanks. Any recommendations closer to Round Rock?

        Apart from Teji's, Chola's can whip up decent biryani.

      Teji's Market has a great one, but I like all of their food.

        2nd for Asiana - although they more commonly have goat biryani on the weekends.

          I have no experience with chicken biryani but it looks like Kadai has it on Sunday's. Kadai is at Parmer and 1431. The service can be okay to downright awful but the food has always been delicious. I like them better Teji's (though I am by no means putting down Teji's!). Just another option you might want to check out.

            Shalimar on North Lamar makes a spicy chicken biryani that I have really enjoyed. It's best ordered off the menu - I think they may dumb down the spice level of the dish when they put it on the buffet.

              I really liked the biryani at Hot Breads on 183 at Spicewood Springs. You should try Hyderbaad biryani. I first encountered this at Kadai and I really enjoyed it as the rice has a slightly crunchy texture. I suspect it's baked for a little while - this Hyderbaad variation is also served at Hot Breads and it's very good.
