Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Biryani is a dish that is not just a culmination of two great things- meat and rice, but a beautiful symphony of flavours, aromas and textures. A good plate of biryani can light up your mood and instantly lift your spirits. When the fluffy rice and the juicy spicy meat touches the palate, it creates a harmonious mouth feel that cannot be found with any other dish.

If you're a fan of biryanis you know finding one with exactly the right amount of spices, flavours and aromas is extremely difficult. Which is why, we've curated a list of all the places in Kanpur where you can find good biryani that too in under 200 bucks!

1. Baba Biryani

Known all over Kanpur as the go-to biryani place, Baba Biryani has created a niche when it comes to serving deliciously prepared biryani. The chicken biryani served here is light, flavourful and aromatic while the chicken is perfectly cooked and juicy.

The best part is that two people can savour a filling meal in just a couple hundred bucks here. Seems like an overall win-win situation!

Location: KDA Colony Jajmau, Kanpur

2. Khan Baba

Khan Baba is another one of Kanpur's favourites. The place has become a reliable non-veg spot for the city, their takatak rolls and the biryani is legendary enough to attract people from all corners of the city.

The biryani served at Khan Baba is light, the rice fluffy and aromatic and the meat is just falling off the bone. While they serve a pretty great chicken biryani, we would highly recommend trying the Mutton Dumpukht and the tikka biryani.

Location: Mega Mall, Near Heer Palace, Mall Road, Kanpur

3. Chacha Biryani

Chacha Biryani is the "it" place to be at when you're looking for some pretty darn delicious chicken biryani. At Chacha Biryani, you get a deliciously roasted piece of chicken that is not only perfectly cooked but juicy and soft.

The biryani is spiced just right, hence you will not require a salan, chutney or raita when you're having it, but we'd still recommend dipping your spoon in a bowlful.

Location: Awas Vikas 1, Near Escort World School, Infront Of Central Bank Of India, Keshavpuram, Kanpur

4. Ajmeri Darbar

If you're someone who enjoys the robust spices of Rajasthan and have been wanting to bite into a juicy piece of chicken and taste a flavourful rice dish, this is where you need to be.

Ajmeri Darbar is the place for people who like their biryani with an added kick of spice. The spicy chicken is what makes the biryani served at Ajmeri Darbar so much better and you have to try it yourself to experience the richness of flavours.

Location: 15/17, MP Mill Ka Hata, RTO Road, Opp Dainik Jagran Office, Sarvodaya Nagar. Kanpur

5. Tandoori Nights

Located in the student hub of Kakadeo, Tandoori Nights is where the students come to get their dose of biryani. The place hence, is not only reasonable but serves some of the best biryani you'll find this side of the city.

If you're a lover of the rich-flavourful biryani which is not just about the chicken but has a great flavour for the rice too, this is where you need to be.

Location: 117 P 512 Chapera Pulia, Hitkari Nagar, Tulsi Nagar, Navin Nagar, Kakadeo, Kanpur

So what are you waiting for? Go grab those wallets, get out or just order in and have a delicious plate of biryani. Let us know if we've missed your go-to biryani point and which is your fave place from the lot. Happy Eating!
