Messy pile of awesome goodness! Mutton is fall-off-the-bone tender. Ordered a separate chicken which is equally good. Rice could be more fragrant but goes well with the curry. 👍🏻

It was alright, definitely one of the better ones in Singapore. Ayam goreng was tender and not so dried. Mutton was good, tender and flavourful. Fluffy Rice is less ghee and gelat. Accompanying sauce was good with vegetable. Que was long but service was fast so it cleared quite well.

Best mutton bryani there is at this price (7 bucks)! The rice is so fragrant and the mutton super tender and flavourful (not gamey at all), the dhal curry is the icing on the cake. Shiok!

Was drawn by the many reviews to this briyani store. However, the experience was lackluster, the mutton was too small a serving and quite tough. The dahl was thick but had one dimensional flavour.

After reading many reviews by food bloggers and others, I decided to give Hamid's Geylang Briyani a try. There were many people in the queue but the queue moved fast as the rice with chicken as well as gravy have already been packed separately. So I did takeaway and ate once I got home. The chicken was dry and flavourless while the rice and gravy were okay reasonably tasty. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to the expectations as this is very average chicken briyani. Pardon the unappetizing photo as I thought of taking a photo of the chicken only when more than halfway done. It's unfortunate that some stalls ride on good online reviews and become complacent, producing mediocre food that are totally not worth the price nor time spent commuting and queuing.

Ran out of everything at 2pm. My only choice was curry chicken. The chicken was good, I could taste the spices, however the meat was so small. Portion of rice is also less as compared to my other favorite location. Overall quite disappointed with the meal due to the reputation it has. Guess I still prefer the other food center has the better briyani.

I always come here whenever I want a plate of comforting mutton briyani. The quality of their mutton is to me the best I have eaten - so tender and flavourful. So satisfying after eating each and every time.

Edit: Finally got to dine in here and tried the Ayam goreng and mutton options. Mutton was flavourful but a little dry and tough. The Ayam goreng was great. It wasn’t particularly crispy but it was packed full of flavour from the marinade. Meat was tender too - impressive! The rice on its own isn’t actually very fragrant. With the masala, it’s great. The dhal this time is much more balanced in favours too. For this visit, plum pickle was provided. It brought a sense of fruitiness and sweetness to the dish - seemingly replacing the role that raisins would normally play in traditional briyani. This was a relatively good experience overall. 5 stars. - This is my first visit to this popular biryani stall. As it was during P2HA, I had to takeaway. But as we all know, biryani to go will still taste good, if not even better. I got home and was pleased that the biryani was still warm. For two portions of mutton biryani, it came with one bag of dahl. Dahl wasn’t particularly good in my opinion, not a fan. The rice was light and fragrant. The masala gravy delicious. Mutton tender but just a bit gamier than I like it, but still good. Flavours are a little sweeter due to the plums(?) instead of raisins used. I was keen to try the Ayam goreng but that was unavailable at around 1pm on a Saturday. The regular Ayam was not available too, but a new batch was being prepared then. Do come earlier to have a wider variety to choose from.

Came here having heard the hype and some coverage on a local channel. There was a long queue, at least 15-20 minutes. Uncle is very kind and patient. However, the biryani doesn’t live up to its hype. The chicken piece was quite small and not tasty. The rice is ok, not flavourful. The dhal doesn’t add anything to the dish, in fact makes it worse.

This Briyani was absolutely delicious! The rice was fragrant with great texture, the sauce delectable, the chicken was a bit dry but the rest made up for it. I would come back here to eat just the rice and sauce many times.

Today is the 1st time me and my family tried this briyani ! We as Indian Muslim family have certain level of standard for briyani. But this briyani we really felt disappointed. The rice was long and difficult to swallow !! Mutton was difficult to chew

After sampling so many biryanis all over Singapore, our hunt was worthwhile after trying the chicken biryani at this stall. The rice (big grains) is fragrant and the chicken seems to have soaked up all the gravy. They do give some sweet pickle kinda thing, which we didn't like much because it's very sweet; however the curry that they give along with biryani is so flavourful.......... slightly tangy but when mixed with rice it makes amazing combo.......I wish they would give more of that :D Also at price of 6 SGD, it is a steal............most of the times even restaurants here lack typical biryani taste. All in all, would definitely try this biryani again.

A friend recommends this place to me. At lunch time, the queue can be quite long (10+ people). I tried their mutton briyani and was not disappointed. The meat is tender and juicy, they serve mutton with curry gravy and a small portion of sweet and sour prune. According to my friend, the prune is to help you digest.

If you are visiting Geylang Serai Food market and you want to eat Bryani, you should just head straight to this stall. You can choose your preference of meat or chicken bryani. It is full of flavor and the meat/chicken is just tender enough for you to enjoy it. The best bryani in Geylang Serai!
