Biryani Park in Malden - closed, hopefully temporarily

I don't know anything more than what's on their website,, which says, "The Biryani Park restaurant in Malden has closed. We are looking for a new location and hope to reopen in the near future."

I know that they have been looking for another location for some time, and that a possible location in Downtown Crossing fell through (I don't think that's the right location for them anyway), but I do really hope that they find a better location, and soon! I miss their food already.

      Personally, I agree, but Somerville is a pretty crowded market - I think they might fare better in Newton or Watertown - does Newton have any decent Indian food?

        As a somervillain, I certainly wouldn't mind if they found their way to this crowded market :)

          I think the lease cost is the issue, all of the towns you mention have a pretty hefty sq ft cost.

            thats what was thinking. Newton would be awesome for me but not many small places in Malden close to re-open in Newton.

              I just hope the re-open, I don't mind a drive, no matter where they end up, for their chow, well worth it.

                I was thinking about the Chinese / Polynesian place on Beacon St. past Newton Centre near the WF. There are a couple of old commercial spaces there that might be affordable.

                  South Pacific?!? That would be inspired.

                    That's because Bob is an inspirational kinda guy }

      2. Downtown might work - the truck always seemed so popular that they were out of everything when I tried it - typically 1p or so - the dregs they assembled were pretty tasty and they were really nice folks

        1. Same here, their Rasam Soup is what I crave when I feel a cold coming on. I hope they find a new location, soon!

          1. I wonder if their food truck will still operate...

              I wonder the same... I'd imagine not unless they find a commercial kitchen, because I'd bet they used their kitchen to make all the dishes in advance.

                I haven't seen Biryani Park in the Financial District at Wed lunch. I haven't seen Fugu for Tues lunch either.

                I just checked the Food Truck schedule online. It seems as if a lot of trucks are not as active in the Winter.

                Hopefully BP gets a kitchen and these trucks will bring back service when Spring gets here.

            2. There's little new information in this article but it does say that the food truck is parked by the restaurant and that they will use their website to post their new plans:
