A bowl of flavoursome Lucknowi biryani could be a good addition to your Ramzan repertoire.

The items are made using recipes handed down from Rehman's grandfather Abdul Raheem, who was part of the royal kitchen team of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah in the 1850s. Apart from their signature rice items, the succulent murgh Kandahari tikka, mutton chapli kebab and Karachi mutton are also worth sampling.

The restaurant is delivering pretty much everything on its menu as long as the tab amounts to R500 or more. If you want to stick to Ramzan eats, they have a special iftar menu box for R1,990. We recommend you also try the kebabs, and the khapsa, a fragrant basmati rice dish topped with chunks of chicken, boiled eggs, carrot, radish and cucumber.
