Lucky Bandra – Dubai’s Answer to Great Biryani

As India’s doors opened to the Moghul Empire, the magical world of Moghlai cuisine was introduced. From here began the saga of the deliciously flavored saffron colored rice cooked with meats: The Biryani.

Biryani originates from the Persian word ‘Biryan” meaning fried actually implying pressure fried. Lucky’s, situated at a busy crossroad (corner of three lamps as it was known in the olden days) of suburban Bandra, Mumbai. Lucky’s Biryani has become quite a household name since its inception way back on Friday 9th September 1938 started by Sayed Ali Akbarul Huseini.

When it opened doors in Dubai, there was quite a stir as people rushed to have their famous Biryani.

Today, I had the chance to try their delicious food and it transported me back to Mumbai. I don’t know about you but a good veg biryani genuinely excites me! And i don’t like them at too many places. What I had:


  • Veg Biryani – Marvelous! A definite try as the basmati was cooked well and the vegetable masala below was flavourful and had all the right spices. Definitely one of the best biryani’s I have ever had.
  • Paneer Butter Masala – Thick, rich and creamy gravy. Just how you would like an Indian gravy.
  • Breads – Soft and done well. They were easy to eat even though it was delivered home.
  • Chilly Garlic Noodles and Manchurian – Like any place serving Indian Chinese, these were good and will satisfy your cravings for Indo Chinese.

What I loved most was the fact that I was supposed to go for a review there today however I couldn’t make it and hence I had it delivered and even though there was a bit of confusion, everything was smoothly sorted by the management over the phone. Appreciate excellent service!

For all those craving a good biryani, this one’s for you!
