Delicious Chicken Biryani, Kebabs and more at Panjim, Goa – Niyaaz

Just landed at the airport and on your way to Panjim?

Waiting for a bus and have a few hours to kill?

Have a sudden craving for delicious, steaming, hot chicken biryani (rice dish served to Mughal emperors)?

Then all you have to do is head to Niyaaz.

Niyaaz – Biryani, Kebabs and Tikkas

Roughly a 5-10 min drive from Panjim bus stand, you can either take a yellow-n-black autorickshaw or even catch a bus going to Margaon. Of course, nothing like going on a rented bike/car/jeep. Ask anyone and they’ll point you in the right direction. Its pretty famous. Prices are also quite reasonable around Rs. 100-300 (US$ 2-6). Service is fast, and you can have an ice cold dessert as you wait. Sometimes its fun doing things backwards.

Word of advice: They apparently prepare biryani only on weekends, so if you end up going on Mon-Friday, have this instead:

Chicken Malai Tikka. With extra malail

Enjoy :).
