Best Nasi Briyani in PJ

Written by Updated ago

Rice is more than just a food. It’s a necessity, it’s a way of life and of course, it’s what made us Malaysians. Now add that with briyani, it’s like a match made in heaven. Frankly, it’s easy to see why: basmati rice is infused with assorted herbs and spices. And then, the rice is cooked together with meat, seafood or vegetables for hours until the overall dish is flavourful enough. Served with curry and side dishes, this dish is all ready to be served. With all the rich ingredients tossed together with the this rice, no wonder it was known as one of the quintessential Malaysian dishes worth drooling for.

    Chennai Station Curry House

    Specialises in South and North Indian cuisine, Chennai Station Curry House deserves a thumb-up for its palatable nasi briyani set. Of all, the mutton briyani gets a standing ovation for its deliciously soft and chewy mutton chunks. The briyani rice itself is flavourful, and more so when you mixed them with thick mutton gravy.
    Tips

    Too busy to dine at the restaurant? Now, you can even book your favourite nasi briyani set via delivery services from Food Panda.

    Things to expect

    With black-and-white checkered flooring and more modernised décor, Chennai Station Curry House is a cut above from your standard Indian restaurants.

    At MOF, their biryani ingredients are all imported straight from Pakistan. Maybe that's what makes their chicken biryani extra flavourful compared to other biryani. The texture of the rice is very fluffy and every bite will take you on a quick trip to Pakistan with the aromatic essence from all the spices. The chicken is surprisingly soft and easy to cut, not like the usual overcooked chicken. In terms of its taste, it is nicely marinated with the right amount of flavour and not overpowering. “The best biryani comes from Pakistan,” explained Balquiz Begum A Hamid, the manager of MOF. And that is exactly what they did, brings Pakistan’s flavour here for us Malaysians to enjoy.

    Tips

    Quite difficult to find a parking spot. Have to park in the Glomac building.

    Served in a round metal pot alongside four delicious side dishes, the Mantra Special Briyani Full Set is definitely the signature dish of Mantra Indian Cuisine. The fluffy and colourful rice is topped with a boiled egg and one large tandoori chicken is enough to feed two grumbling tummies. The side dishes consist of salad, butter gravy, raitha, and gulb jamun. Each and every one of them is beautifully prepared with the right spices and ingredients to give you the best Biryani experience. According to its manager, this dish is nearly similar to the ones in Northern India that you won’t even notice the differences. Here that cue? That's the cue for you to come and try this dish!

    Have to really look out for this restaurant since its location is pretty secluded.

    If you are tired of the same old local briyani rice, you might want to consider the one served at the Chennai-based Anjappar. Served traditionally in a steel pot, the briyani rice is steeped heavily with spices. The rice is so full of flavour, yet appetising enough and don’t be surprised if you find them addictive. It goes great with either chicken or mutton. If you’re into seafood, they even have a choice of fish or prawn to go along with your briyani rice.

    Restoran Ratha Raub @ Damansara UtamaPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Originated from Raub, Pahang, this restaurant is famous for its signature fish head curry and fried lamb. You can add their briyani dish to the list as well. Served in a claypot, the briyani rice is infused well with a potpourri of fragrant spices and juicy bits of sweet raisins. Coupled with a whole boiled egg and crunchy nuts, enjoying the rice alone is already enough to make your taste bud reeling with satisfaction. You have a choice of plain or vegetable briyani, but the meat varieties (chicken or lamb) is the one that comes highly-recommended.
    Tips

    If you like their curry, you can even buy their ready-made curry paste to whip up your own dish at home.

    House Of Pakeeza

    The delectable North Indian vegetarian dish of palak paneer may have ranked as one of the must-order items here, but House of Pakeeza also serves satisfying nasi briyani. For starter, their plain briyani is tasty enough on its own. Thanks to a potent mix of herbs and spices, the briyani rice goes well with a dollop of curry. Topped with a few meat of your choice (their juicy mutton is an excellent complement here), the word “fragrant” will definitely linger into your mind as you savour upon every bite.
    Tips

    You can call for reservations.

    Things to expect

    It’s like stepping into the past when you enter the restaurant filled with old-fashioned décor.

    At the first glance, Restoran Khyber Pass has the look of a fine-dining setup that’s going to cost a bomb for a meal. Fortunately, that wasn’t really the case. Their range of briyani dishes, especially chicken and mutton briyani sets, are recommendable. But if you’re looking for an ultimate briyani experience, go for Khyber Pass Biryani. Served with saffron rice, you’ll get a sensational trio of chicken, lamb and shrimp combined altogether onto one plate.
