They tag themselves as an Authentic Hyderabadi Food House. FYI: Hyderabad is the name of a large city in India, and also the name of a large city in Pakistan. Biryani Pot is following the INDIAN style of cuisine and food, for those who are nitpickers.

|Non-Veg Lunch Combo at Biryani Pot|
Liberty Kitchen. Hey, I have no problem with it! It keeps everything all well organized and all out there where it can be seen! The chicken curry was very tasty--the sauce was a bit like a red Masala sauce. Sweet, musky, warm, with some heat. Very good stuff. I was dipping my Roti and Naan bread in the Daal Curry--which was more herbal than the Chicken Curry. The Chicken Dum Biryani with Jeera rice was filling and tasty all the way around. And the salad with the yogourt dressing on the side had fresh veggies that were crispy and mild. I was highly pleased with the value this combo supplied for Under $10.00, as well as the flavour.
Although the place is only recently opened, they had a very healthy lunch crowd for a Wednesday, which was very diverse--Westerners, South Asian and East Asian clientele were dining and seemed quite happy with their dishes. This is a small location though--maybe seating about 50 people tops, and the service was present, but not invasive or evasive. The dining area was quite clean and I was able to see into the kitchen as the door opened & closed, and it was quite clean as well. This place doesn't have the fusion factor of The Queen Vic, the experimental factor of Pondicheri or the high end cachet of Kiran's, but you know what, sometimes it's just nice to have this kind of cuisine in a casual diner environment and the food is just plain good.
