Bismillah Briyani is Michelin bib gourmand awarded for their briyani (duh), and of course I had to go see if it was the real life, or if it was just fantasy. The interior decor probably dates back to when the last of the actual bohemians sang a rhapsody, and it really shows.

Their signature kid goat briyani is fifteen (!!!) dollars for a regular sized plate. Fifteen? You GOAT to be kidding me, Scaramouche. Yes, all seven sizeable chunks of kid goat were stunningly sapid and tremendously tender, while the rice was felicitously fluffy and shockingly spicy. Still, it’s extremely expensive and not worth the moolah, especially if you’re just a poor boy from a poor family.

It’s not the price that is the reason why I’ll never go back, however. No, the food was quite remarkable, so it ain’t that. No, it’s because the most gargantuan fucking cockroach in Little India decided to smugly plop itself on the empty (thankfully) seat opposite me and engage me in a staring contest which it lost. After it scurried away, the putrid fucker actually tried to climb onto my shoe!

Mama, I just killed a pest. Put my foot down on its head, squished the bastard, now he’s dead. And that, ladies and gentlemen, was how I knew I outstayed my welcome at Bismillah, and it was high time for me to didi mau. Goodbye everybody, I’ve got to go.

Tl;dr: fuckin bugs man, them bugs are everywhere


I feel compelled to saturate my review with synonyms of "aromatic" — this Michelin-affirmed rice possessed it in spades.
Texture-wise, the rice was grainy and avoided greasines, whilst still retaining the right degree of moisture. However, it was that explosion of boisterous spice-laden flavours that stole my heart; paired with chunks of succulent lamb, similarly oozing in rich flavours, it was a satisfying dish to say the least.
The price tag is admittedly steep, but worth a try nonetheless for what is touted as one of the best local authentic Hyderabad style "dum" biryanis.

Got this with MealPal. Was expecting the takeaway quality to be slightly lower than eating it freshly prepared at the shop, but I was wrong! Was packed just before I arrived so it was still toasty when I picked it up. When I finally got to eating it, my colleagues were all like "where's that aroma coming from.." and I inevitably had to offer them some haha. That's how good it was even though its a takeaway!

This is definitely my go to place for biryani! 🙂

Rating: 5/5


Understated at first glance. But once you dig it, the flavour of the well-cooked and well-marinated rice just explodes in your mouth. The mutton (i.e. Goat) was cooked so fantastically that you can even taste all the spices (used to marinate the meat) on the bone! #Mindblown

I also like how this place is less heavy on the gravy. Instead, they offer a yoghurt sauce to accompany the dish. Awesome combination! This is definitely my go to place for biryani! 😋

High expectation on “Goat Briyani” $15 & “Vegetarian Briyani” $8.50 from this Michelin Bib Gourmand 2016, 2017 @bismillahbriyanisg
Great serving portion for Briyani rice along with yoghurt sauce. Their potato in vegetarian Briyani is very well seasoned. However, compared to other good value eat in the area, we are not sure if we will go back again unless they introduce lunch deal!


Unfortunately it seems that the usual standard can't be maintained at a booth. To me it was just an above average briyani but the strong smell of the spices were noteworthy. Hopefully it's much better at the original place

Many thanks to Michelin Guide Singapore for the gracious hosting and @burpple for the invite!
