Student Biryani – Now in Lahore

Student Biryani, started as a roadside dhabha in downtown Karachi, had lately grown into a chain of fancy outlets with several thousand customers walking in every day. Recently they have started an outlet in Lahore too. Go here for a detailed review.

    so happy it has come to lahore, i had it 15-16yrs ago when i visited karachi. And every time i make biryani i inadvertently compare it with the best biryani that i once had. Needless to say that my cooked biryani never measures up to the nostalgia.
    But really after few years of cooking i can say that its an art to have distinct layers of yellow,white+ masala and yet maintaining a wholesome taste.
    Another khaba for zinda-dillan

    @ duffer
    have u tried it? I wonder why u did not like it,because I had been exploring all the biryani stands of lahore in search of the taste that match student biryani.
    I hope it stays afloat till my next trip of lahore so that I can verify ur opinion.

    lahore and karachi ppl have a major taste difference
    the biryani with same taste as of karachi’s is not going to be welcomed

    I guess the guy who owns the Student Biryani franchise would think of something clever like introducing more lahori type spices into the biryani, or probably even serving a glass of lassi with the biryani instead of the usual raeta… lol.

    wow! what a co-incidence visiting lahore.metblogs today was so pleasantly surprising!
    here goes the story.
    A friend of mine joined ‘biriani’ on facebook. It reminded me of student biryani and I searched for their hopeeless website thru google. An old posting on student biryani from Karachi.metblogs also appeared. I decided to check Lahore.metblogs too and wow! the first posting is of student biryani. It has to be the best biryani available anywhere.I tried it and loved it everytime I visited karachi. Kudos to Student biryani. keep up the good work and I wish them all the best to be super hit in Lahore too

    I spent two years in Karachi and there was never a week when I did not eat student biryani… Oh god! I miss that taste. Good Luck Lahore!
