What pops to mind when you think of biryani? Hot, sweaty, not so hygienic mamak stalls jutted with plastic tables and wafts of the gutters teasing your nose hairs? Flavourful but oily rice with bits of bone, skin and meat all mixed in and sticky overcooked unidentifiable somethings encrusting the bottom of the pot? If yes, it’s time to toss that image out and rethink your biryani experience.

Marsala Tea

Instead, conjure up a picture of wooden tables, classic Indian artwork, tiled walls, friendly homey service, a clean cool room and, silver pots of perfectly steamed rice layered with the best cuts of meat, seafood and poultry and a secret blend of herbs and spices. Meet Fierce Curry House, where the Northern Indian comfort food of biryani has been elevated to new epicurean heights.

This round at Fierce Curry House challenged our perception of this popular dish. Boston Lobster, King Prawn and Scallop Biryanis are recently perfected variations. Taste seems just as important as presentation. In this case, a giant silver pot of the lobster biryani was set upon our table. Guests leaned in with hungry anticipation as the top was removed. Gasps of awe could be heard as abundant long grain rice and a 900gm lobster was lifted and revealed. While not quite as dramatic as the unveiling of the lobster, the King Prawn and Scallop Biryani openings were just as rousing. Seafood, in all cases, was flawless in preparation and the long grains of the biryani rice maintained just enough texture to remain firm but also soak up the flavours of the seasonings and crustaceans.

Starfruit and Apple Lassis

Expect drinks too to delight any foodie. While traditional Lassis are available, Watermelon, Apple, Orange and Starfruit versions deliver attractive, thinner and more refreshing options. If you still have room, a splendid twist on Thosai and Roti will please the sweet tooth with Kaya (coconut jam), Nutella and Peanut Butter acting as fillers. Or, perhaps just one saccharine bite might be more adept in the form of Gulab Jamun, milk powder dumplings soaked in sugar syrup.

Not only were the gourmet biryanis new additions to Fierce Curry House since our last visit, we were also pleasantly surprised with new opening hours, 10:30am – 10:30pm (meaning we can now make it for dinner), Wi Fi, air con, new bathroom, ceiling fans, funky ambience music and a new “No Smoking” rule (yippee!).

  1. ooo, it must have required quite a bit of experimentation to get the lobster and scallop briyanis just right, so that they don't dry out! sounds like a sumptuous substitute for chicken briyani 😀

  2. Wah!!! The name is really scary!!! LOL!!!

  3. lobster briyani.. this is really expensive food …

  4. o wow the lobster biryani looks tempting! wish I can go Malaysia 1 day to try this out >o<

  5. I have to go there! What an incredible dish!

  6. Wow! What a luxurious version of Briyani!

  7. Sigh! I love a good Biryani anyday!! Sorry to be such a pedant, but Biryani is NOT a North Indian comfort food. Makai ki roti and Sarson da saag is NI comfort food. Biryani is a culinary masterpiece from the beautiful pearl city of Hyderabad. It is NOT comfort food.. It is gourmet soul food. A biryani is a perfect confluence of long grains of rice, spices and tender meat. A biryani is a bouquet of flavours that enhance each other and create a starburst of sensation on your tastebuds..
    A biryani is perhaps the easiest , yet the most difficult dish to make, because ONE thing less or more can ruin it.

    The best thing to eat Hyderabadi Dum Biryani is with an Onion, mint and lime salad and bhagare baingan or mirchi ka salan. Chicken Curry and Vegies just DONT cut it!

    Fierce is currently one of the best places in town for Hyd Dum Biryani, but it lacks many things.. I hope they can build on their strength and better their Biryanis. All the best to them!

    • Xena, What an awesome comment! Thanks for the info. I don't pretend to be an expert in Indian food. I will be checking out your blog to find out more 😉

  8. Good photos 🙂 He certainly takes pictures as well as he eats! There was us saying "oh we couldn't possibly" when the curry puffs came round after the feast and he stormed right in! A great restaurant and lovely company 🙂

  9. my mom and I ordered the Hyderabad Dhum chicken biryani and paneer etc. My mom complained that the biryani was tasteless and I felt that it was a tad salty and it lacked that unique combination of flavours in good biryanis. I seriously think that the biryani here is HUGELY OVERRATED and the food at the former Bangles restaurant was so-so. So much about all this glowing reviews. There was the lack of harmony and balance which seriously good Indian restaurants do attain.

    • Thanks for your comment Piyu. Did you pass your suggestions onto the management? It sounds as though some quality control is in order. I've heard that the owner responds very well to constructive criticism. I'm sure your suggestions would be very helpful. Warm regards, Monica
