Kaveri Restaurant is one of the most famous and lovely places to have biryani in Jharkhand. It is in the center of the city, which means it is easily accessible. Their biryani dishes are delicious options for both dinner and lunch. However, do keep in mind that the restaurant only offers vegetarian dishes. You can have a good time picking from a variety of delightful food options, such as the Indo-Chinese dish of paneer chili, dahi vada, or masala corn. Of course, the environment provides a cool setting for dining. Customer service is also impressive.

Yellow Sapphire - Capitol Hill

Contributed by Trip101 Local Expert, Shrimayee Thakur

My family and I have been loyal customers of Capitol Hill’s incredible restaurant, Yellow Sapphire, for years. The biryani here is one of our most-ordered dishes—soft, well-seasoned chicken in flavorful rice that will keep you coming back for more. Pair this with tandoori chicken and you have the makings of a feast. If you or your companions are looking for other lip-smacking dishes, I’d recommend the sublime rogan josh. You can even order in if you’re having a lazy day—the restaurant is listed on the popular food delivery app, Zomato.

The restaurant hosts a huge buffet every Sunday and on special occasions, such as Christmas, so do pop in for some delicious food if you’re here.
