We have seen a higher uptake on our orders today, which looks to increase through the evening. Biryani is a cuisine which is celebratory by nature, be it a birthday, an anniversary or friends celebrating.

There are a lot of restaurants that have come up with promotional offers on biryani. Vishal Jindal, co-founder of biryani and kebab chain Biryani by Kilo said that the chain is giving away 25% off.
