Biriyani Express (Nugegoda)

Biriyani Express offers good portions of fairly priced, tasty biriyani with a local touch.

The Biriyani Express in Nugegoda feeds its customers with good portions of fairly priced, tasty, yet slightly localised biriyanis. We placed our order through PickMe Food.

The Biriyani

Look at the amount of chicken in this Chicken Biriyani (Rs. 600)! That's almost a chicken breast here. Nicely rubbed with spices, it had a good flavour too. 

The rice itself was a little sticky, and yet, aromatic and colourful. They sure have infused it with spices, but it looks like they don't cook the rice and meat together. Instead, they cook those two separately and mix them up as they serve the biriyani. 

Nonetheless, it was enjoyable. The flavour rings close to the local taste, especially with the sweet achcharu on the side. 

The Mutton Biriyani (Rs. 780) shared the same rice base and had about 5 chunks of mutton pieces tossed into it. It's all meaty pieces - no bones, gristly bits nor skins, which we appreciate. The mutton itself had a swirl of sweetness running through them, as well as a subtle masala kick. 


All in all, it wasn't disappointing. The Chicken Biriyani was the clear winner of the two, due to its high chicken-to-rice ratio, and the Mutton Biriyani had its moments. From what we gathered, they have more biriyani varieties, as well as another branch in Pelawatte, which you can order by calling 0117556207 or 0777911207.
