From the service, to the food, to the entertainment- This place is a great place to get Indian food in Kampala. Kampala is jam-packed with great Indian restaurants and eats, and I'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a higher end restaurant!

Went with a group of colleagues. It's definitely more relaxed than other restaurants in the area, which is great. Food was tasty & good value for money. I'm sure I'll be back when next in Kampala. Note that the TripAdvisor map gives an incorrect location. It's further up the road & on the right hand side, not left. Still within... More

I realized for the second time in my life that Indian food isn't for me. I gave it a second try because I heard from friends that this place had a good chill atmosphere, and it does. But the food for me was a no go, personally my body can't handle Indian cuisine.

Great place to have Indian food, chicken tandoori is a must try. It is a paradise for food lovers...

I was in uganda for a week and i reallt missed indian food. I was asked to go to biryani house and try their chicken biryani and chicken tikka masala. Man was I mind blown. I was surprised how much similar it was to the food back home. I also had a sweet lassi which hit the right spot! Amazing... More

When you go to a restaurant called biryanihouse, you expect various delicacies and varieties of biryanis. It therefore boggles your mind when the waiter tells you " we don't have biryani we can give you fish and chips" How it got 4 stars on trip advisor is beyond understanding. Absolutely hopeless
