Chicken Biryani Family Pack from Sahibs Biryani

This was long overdue!  A couple of months ago, after seeing the videos of the biryani being prepared with the best of precaution, with safety measures and body temperature checks of everyone involved in the process, right from cooking to delivery, a nicely packed box delivered in a sanitized vehicle, I was quite eager to try since then!
Finally placed the order for Sunday lunch, the previous evening around 07:30PM.  As mentioned, they delivered at 11:45AM sharp ! Absolutely no hassle there!  The package exactly how I’ve seen it in the video.  

Zero spillage, the accompaniments neatly packed in boxes – Raita, Brinjal gravy and Bread Halwa.

Finally, the man of the moment ! The showstopper – The Biryani !

The aroma was wonderful as we opened the ‘Dum’.  The aluminum foil helped retain the heat, so it was more than just warm.  After an initial probing, one thing that was very obvious was I didn’t see a nice leg piece, not even one !   It was just the form factor, so not a problem.  The meat was generous, quite a few pieces of chicken.  In a biryani that serves 5 people, I would expect at least a couple of nice leg pieces ! 
Biryani was not spicy, my daughter loved it.  Accompaniments were spot on, tasty !   The biryani had nice flavor of the meat, chicken pieces in biryani were well-cooked, soft and succulent.  There was nothing that I would complain about, regarding the taste. 

Coming to the price vs quantity, we were 4 adults and a kid and it was just okay for all of us.  If it was for a friends’ get-together, I am pretty sure we would have fallen short of biryani considering that we’re all good eaters.  I would say this comfortably serves 4 good eaters, not 5.  This is priced at 2000 bucks, which I would consider, is on the higher side!  I had a voucher for 500 bucks that I won in one of thee Quiz competitions in Chennai Food Guide, so I only had to pay 1500 bucks.  The safety standards, the quality, etc. attribute to the cost, but considering the fact that at 1500-1700 bucks, there are many people who serve 1:1.5 Kg of Chicken Biryani, in a bucket which would comfortably serve 7-8 good eaters, I would definitely think this is pricey!
Again, tasty and yummy without a doubt!  Those who’re not very particular about budget, would certainly have a wonderful experience from Sahibs Biryani!  Those who’re looking for total value for money, you’re better off with other cheaper bucket biryani options!

    I recently had the pleasure of enjoying a culinary journey from this establishment, and the overall experience, especially considering it was a delivery, was truly impressive. Let me break down my review based on various aspects of the visit.

    Service: 9/10
    Even in the context of a delivery, the service was nothing short of exceptional. The packaging was not only secure but also aesthetically pleasing, showcasing attention to detail and a commitment to delivering a top-notch experience. I would easily rate the service a solid 9 out of 10.The service was truly commendable.

    Food: 8/10
    Raitha and Brinjal: 8/ 10
    The Raitha and Brinjal dishes stood out, offering a delightful blend of flavors. I would give them an 8 out of 10 for their taste and quality.

    Bread Halwa: 7.5/10
    While the Bread Halwa was good, it could have been improved by being a bit thicker. Nevertheless, it was a satisfying dessert, earning a 7.5 out of 10.

    Mutton Biriyani: 7/10
    The Mutton in the Biriyani was exceptionally well-cooked and tender, deserving a perfect 10. However, the overall Biriyani experience fell slightly short. It lacked a distinct flavor that could have elevated it to the next level. Sahibs Biryani, while good, left me craving for that extra something. I would rate it a 7 out of 10.

    Packaging: 9/10
    The packaging deserves a special mention for being top-notch. The meticulous attention paid to securing the dishes, ensuring they arrived in pristine condition, added to the overall positive experience. I would confidently rate the packaging a 9 out of 10.
    In the realm of delivered meals, this experience stood out. The restaurant’s commitment to excellence was evident not only in the exceptional service but also in the secure and appealing packaging. The food, while having some room for improvement, maintained its quality, and the standout Mutton dish showcased the culinary prowess of the establishment. The overall experience, considering the delivery context, deserves a commendable 8.5 out of 10.

    In conclusion, this restaurant not only delivered a delightful culinary experience but also demonstrated a commitment to maintaining quality even in a delivery setting. The food was not only delicious but also easy on the stomach, contributing to an overall enjoyable experience. I would confidently rate the overall experience an 8.5 out of 10.
    I look forward to future orders and the continued excellence in both food and service.
