The chicken biryani here has a rice-to-meat ratio of shoppers-to-checkout lines at Whole Foods, but we’re not complaining. The heavily spiced rice, which you should make even richer and spicier by adding yogurt and chili-peanut sauces, is very enjoyable on its own. The pieces of tender, juicy boneless chicken hidden are fantastic, and that’s only one of the 15 types of biryani at this bright, casual spot in India Square, so come with a bunch of people and get a few to share.
