The review was anonymously done by Gurgaon Foodie admins after paying for the meal.

When I asked a foodie friend from Vizag as to where to go for an authentic local, meal, he wholeheartedly recommended Raju Dhaba. Its popularity was obvious when at 2:30 pm we were told that there was a 20 minute wait for the table, and not just that, every dish on the black board menu may not be available then.


Wait we did, and finally got our table and quickly ordered. We got the last plate of Andhra Mutton Biryani (Rs 220) and everything else that was available – that being Prawn Fry (Rs 210), Liver Fry (Rs 140) and Sambhar Chawal (Rs 40).

Food was a memorable experience. Let me start with the Andhra Mutton Biryani. It did not look pretty like its Hyderabad or Awadh cousins, but what it lacked in looks it made up in personality. This biryani was definitely the Govinda among biryanis, with a robust spiciness combined with the flavor and fragrance of sona masuri rice making my palate do a “what is your smile number” jig.


The prawns and liver were perfectly succulently cooked. 


And the sambhar was most enjoyable too. If in Vizag, do eat here. Just remember to reach way earlier than we did.
