Dining Out

Fresh flavour to heighten senses

SPICY, aromatic and rich in taste, Pakistani cuisine is the ultimate comfort food that will enliven your senses through its vibrancy and refinement of fresh, earthy flavours.

Now regarded as the ideal way to truly sample this country’s fine offerings, a trip to Student Biryani in Auburn will certainly leave you craving for more.
A second generation biryani maker, owner and chef Muhammad Naveed said he learned how to cook the signature dish from his father when he was 13 or 14-years-old.
Prepared fresh each day, the sumptuous signature biryani is still made using his father’s secret recipes to produce a consistent taste and quality, with options including chicken, beef, goat or vegetables.
“All offerings are 100 per cent halal,” he said.
After expanding the business to outlets at Surry Hills and Wollongong, Muhammad says they have ramped up their takeaway and home delivery through Uber Eats, Menulog and Doordash but also feature a 50-seat, in-house dining option.
“Over 90 per cent of our orders are for the chicken or beef biryani dishes (meat with rice, marinade and spices), haleem chicken or beef (a thick lentil and meat stew) and beef nehari (slow-cooked stew of bone marrow and beef),” he said.
Vegetarians have plenty of tasty choices too such as Kardhi pakora, chickpea balls cooked with yogurt and special spices or vegetable biryani made with fresh mixed vegetables and basmati rice cooked with traditional hot spices, garlic, ginger, tomatoes and yogurt in Pakistani style.
There is also a tempting range of side dishes, naan breads and desserts, as well as refreshing plain, strawberry or mango lassi drinks.
Student Biryani Auburn is open Monday to Friday, 11am-11pm, and on weekends for breakfast from 9am to 11pm.
