Like most Indians, I love biryani with all my heart and soul. It’s beyond what we call comfort food, and the one thing I miss in London is just that – an accessible Biryani shack/restaurant/take-away. Hyderabadi Biryani, Kolkata Biryani, Lucknowi Biryani… I’ll take anything. Just give me succulent pieces of well marinated chicken or lamb cooked in rice.

DUM Biryani House in Soho is an absolute Godsend for those days after work when I don’t want anything but a one pot meal. They serve traditional Hyderabadi dum biryani in one little pot covered with pastry – to give pressure (or dum) to the rice and meat, the rim of the vessel is laden with dough and then covered with a lid. The menu is limited with three types of Biryani and a few starters – all you need in a restaurant that heroes the biryani.

Adding a bit of panache to the décor of the restaurant, are some kick-ass Hate Copy prints by desi Toronto based artist Maria Qamar, which will leave you chuckling throughout your meal. What urged Dhruv Mittal, the owner, to open this biryani joint? A massive gap in the market. And I, for one, couldn’t be more pleased!
