Dum Biryani

The Biryani Wok, a biryani specialty restaurant, opened in CanLanka Food Court (No. 494, Galle Road, Wellawattha, Colombo 06) in Colombo 06 on May 5.

The concept is “Cooked With Love – Served With Elegance.” The main restaurant is in the Dehiwala-Mount Ravinia, a suburb of Colombo, and it also participates in various food festivals held in and around Colombo.

The food court, where the new restaurant is located, is a covered facility with street food-style stalls offering ice cream, chicken pie, and kottu, to name a few. The dining area with table seating is shared with other restaurants, and a large screen is installed to show live sports broadcasts, such as cricket.

The restaurant’s signature dish is “Shovel Biryani.” Banana leaves are laid out on the table, and the staff serves the biryani — filled with meat, whole boiled eggs, and other ingredients — directly to the table with a shovel. It also offers Dum Biryani with marinated chicken or beef cooked with rice, String Hopper Biryani made with rice noodles, and Kidu Rice Menu served with chicken kurma and mango curry.

Opening hours: 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 a.m.
