Me and my hungry co-brother were looking for a biryani place in Chennai. I obviously got ruled out since dinner was my place of choice. We were at Pudupettai one of the well known places for vehicle accessories and one of the local guys suggested Hotel Mittath.
It was around 3 pm when we walked in and the place was absolutely packed. We went in for two mutton biryani & natti (country) chicken fry. The biryani was exquisite! I am no fan of this loaded meal (yes we exist), so if I say it is exquisite, it will be right on the money. There is something pleasant about not having to bite into a freakin cardamom every three mouthfulls. I managed to eat my complete plate of biryani (never could do that if it wasn’t good enough). Lightly and evenly spiced with no one spice able to dominate the others and working well together for a lovely balanced flavor and succulent melt in the mouth chunks of mutton everything was perfect. This was made in the Ambur style.
The chicken was also well cooked and fall of the bone with good spicy gravy. Their mutton cup curry is a special though we were hardly in a position to try anything else. Enjoy the visuals and dont drool on the screen or keyboard. One of the finest places for Biryani in Chennai. Their variety of dishes is mind blowing so come eat and pamper your palate. If you are in Royapettah dont miss this place and it’s quite esy on the pocket too !! The service was absolutely brilliant and we were served very well inspite of the crowd
