Serves Biryani which is better than Paradise chain. I suggest doing takeaways and restaurant is very clumsy and ambiance is not great

This place arguably serves the best biryani (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian) in Phoenix. Located right next to the Indian Store, it’s a value for money no frills - primarily take away restaurant. The dishes are spicy and loaded with vegetables. The biryani is accompanied by salan which is a hot spicy liquid condiment that goes on the biryani. You’ve got... More

The owner/Cashier preparing and serving the food without any hand gloves. I have noticed couple of times during 15 mins, he is putting his fingers in his mouth, with same hands he is touching the food items and serving. The same person is cooking as well. We ate biryani and literally vomited after seeing his hands everywhere. Biryani is too... More

They come with Raita and Salan and are nice and spicy as a... More

Small mom and pop restaurant. Spartan interior. However, what it lacks in ambience , it makes up with its yummy food. This place serves the best biryani in the valley. We ordered (carry out) Dhum Chicken Biryani($8.99) as well as the Vegetarian biryani($7.99) Both dishes were yum, even though the vegetarian dish had no vegetables to speak off. We intend... More

As a family we love Indian food and good Indian food is hard to find in Phoenix. My Dad found this and everyone loves it. I enjoy it but it's far too spicy for me (even when requested mild). Everything from there has been rich in spices and freshly made.

Looks Indo-Pak but Serves many indian varieties including Dosa / Idli Batter...Price is reasonable. But the Old man in the shop is shouting. And the restaurant serves Gud Biryani orders taken over phone. Vegetarian items are not that great.

Right at the junction of E Bell Rd and SR51 is this small Indian restaurant which I have frequented several times., This has just about the right combination of price, location and food quality if you are looking for Indian cuisine around that area. Bawarchi is basically a help-yourself sort of eatery that can hardly be called a restaurant. It... More
