First time trying the mandi rice. Ordered a 2 person portion with chicken and mutton. The rice was pleasantly fragrant and paired well with the yogurt and salsa sauce. The meat was tender and had a hint of smoky flavour. Absolutely delicious! Make sure you are there with an empty stomach because the portion was huge.

Delicious and generously portioned chicken and rice meals! The meal is creatively served on a big platter, perfect for sharing. There are a variety, but we had the Mendi and Biryani chicken, which were tasty and filling. Friendly staff, and a chill area to dine in. The portions are huge, so it's highly recommended for those super hungry times! :)

My 1st time dining in this restaurant. Felt like a hole in the wall but the food produced was special. The Mandi rice had a smokiness to it and the Briyani rice was flavorful, light and fluffy. We had both choices of Mutton and Chicken. While I felt that the mutton was better, my friends liked both just as much. Prices are quite reasonable so if you come with friends.. order more to try. Definitely a place to come eat again.

Excellent mandi rice filled with flavour of the meat. The meat is tender and cooked with great care. Thanks to the chef, he even asked me to sample some of the Biryani to show me how different his nasi biryani is and how different it is from the rest around. I went on a Sunday at noon and the place was packed. And packed with discerning fans of all races who seem to be returning guests. The place is a must for Arabic Mandi. Will go back to try the Biryani next.

Biryani (SGD $8.50) @ Cafe Mariam. . Perhaps some of the appeal of this delicious biryani lies in how rare and challenging it is to get. . This humble, hole-in-the-wall joint is owned by Chef Hassan Abdul Majeed, whose grandfather founded the legendary Islamic Restaurant at North Bridge Road, a place reowned for their biryani. . Chef makes nearly everything from scratch, and his labour-intensive 3-stage cooking process means each dish is top notch, though it also limits his menu to only 5 items; all a variation of either biryani or mandi rice. . His belief that saffron is key, means the dish is generously and luxuriously flavoured, and along with other spices, impart a rich grainy spice sweet savoury flavour to the loose and fluffy basmati rice. . The large and generous mutton is fall-apart tender, with meaty savoury spice flavour, complimenting the rice. Was so large that chef handed me an additional empty plate for portioning it out. . Completed with an intensely sour spicy pickles, and a side of curry (although the biryani is good enough on its own). . Chef only opens for a mere 4-hours for lunch each day, and often sells out before closing. This, along with the limited 12 - 14 seats at the stall, means careful advance planning is needed to dine. . Still, this biryani is the gold medal standard for me.
