Am ashamed to admit this. Being a confirmed foodie, I visited Sabir's Hotel (Popularly known as just 'Sabir') for the first time in life only last week though I have had planned to check out its legendary rezala umpteen times, and my new office (Since April 2010) is just minutes away from it. Tried the biriyani. It's good, and a dash better than Aliah's. The rice is good, the potato is decent, so is the piece of mutton (wish it were a little juicy). And the price is honest- Rs 70 (Back home in Barrackpore at the biriyani hotspot 'Dada Boudir Hotel' it has touched Rs 100 in all possibilities). The entire menu is honestly priced. Wish to come back soon.

  1. Dada Boudir Hotel @BKP is charging too much for biriyani! personally I am not fan of them, rather to Arsalan @Park Circus 7 Point Crossing. FYI BKP is now flooded with restros, newest Penguin (same guys of Sodepur & Khardaha) offering biriyani@95 with egg and two pc mutton. Only problem as they r nt biriyani specialist there is a chance of mutton from other mutton item to be mixed with mutton biriyani. There is another new type of biriyani spreading over BKP - fast cook that sucks bigtime. Samrat's again @BKP biriyani juicey one is also good enough!
