First Time Customer And They Called The Police – So my boyfriend, my friend, and I were craving Indian food and we found Biryani Bowl. We sit down to look at the menu and about three minutes later the cashier told us to move for other customer that came after us. We were forced to sit in the back of the restaruant. We waited forty minutes and they served everyone else in the restaruant before our food was done. We get home an we find fibble little pieces of burnt meat which I can only assume was lamb, cold food, and warm mango lassi. We're beyond mad at this point. My friend calls to tell the manager how upset he is and that he wants a refund. He was told that if we brought the food we would get our money back. We drive back and my friend goes in with the food. Several minutes past when I see two police car pull up. The man actually called the police on us just over a food dispute. The police even said this was a complete waste of time. Worst of all he took back all the food and never gave us our refund. Now we went hungry for the night and $40 short.
RACIST AND RUDE, not worth even a star – Ok, so we get there at about 9, we sit down as though we are going to sit and eat. Literally just minutes later a server said, "can you move? this is for our members.", as he points to six indians. The only other tables were in the back of the restaurant. honestly now if that isn't the epitomy of racisim please do tell me! But it gets worse! we literally end up waiting for 48 minutes, I ended up timing, because we were in there for so long. Not to mention he didn't give us our drinks, HE SET THEM ON THE HOT GLASS THAT WAS KEEPING THE (tasteless) FOOD WARM. so lets skip just how bad the food was. I mean did they throw a whole mint plant in there or the whole dang farm? but thats cool thats who they are right? sure maybe what ever. My friend goes back for what we all heard as "refund" I didn't go in but, I eventually did, because they called the cops and there were cars now parked in the empty parking lot (it's 10:08 pm now). cops listened to us, and even with them there this is what we were given. Half a refund. tada! and they took the food back. yup! as we gave it to him to check, HE KEPT IT. Let me repeat that, HE KEPT IT, EVERYTHING!!!! Drinks and $40 of meager food. And so here I am now, hungry, broke, and angry.
Stay away unless you want to end up like me!!
worst food..not a place for vegans – This is the worst restaurant I have come across in my 10 years US stay. We have been in almost all the states, but believe me please save your money. First they better change to only non-veg restaurant, I could'nt even stand there for a second, I think they were cooking fish, and I was about to vomit there. THere is no way a veg can like the atmosphere, the smell, the masala they added in the biryani. I felt like I was eating ground masala with rice not biryani. Please if someone, I don't care if the owner is thinking that his biryani is great compared to swagat, please go to swagat and eat..you will know what biryani is and I am no way related to swagat but biryani bowl is worst. I had the biryani sitting on my table till today noon. I just hate throwing food, so added lots of curd and had it. Biryani Bowl Food is very unhealthy with lots of burned oil, someone should go to the kitchen and see the oil color, it will definitely be black burned. I will say this restaurant deserves negative stars, not even single star....
DONT GO THERE! – This place doesnt deserve a single star!
So its 1pm Sunday afternoon. We are hungry and so we decide to visit this new place. Somewhere around the corner,people are celebrating India's Independence day.
I order Chicken noodle, Veg Manchurian, Veg Biryani & a Mango lassi. 10 mins after I ordered, the lady at the counter brings me the Lassi. Sweet beginning followed by a 25 minute wait! At this point my toddler has already gulped down the Lassi and me and my DH are wondering if we had accidentally ordered the food to-go. Then the lady walks to our table and asks us if we can order something else because our Noodles order will take some more time! What? At this point we are so hungry that we order Chicken fried rice thinking it will arrive soon. 20 more minutes pass and the place is now crowded with people. We are about to leave when our order finally lands on our table.
Food? NOT WORTH THE WAIT. Veg Manchurian is sour and spicy. The Biryani was tasteless and the Chicken fried rice - let me not comment.
In my 10 years of stay here in the US, of all the Indian places I have visited, I was never ever made to stay this long for (tasteless)food or made to rethink and reorder 25 minutes after I had placed the order. It is not worth it guys. Stay away.
