I had gone to this restaurant after a recommendation from a friend at Chennai, that Mutton and chicken Biriyani in this hotel is excellent. We went there for lunch. the first thing I liked, is that there is no noisy traffic, used to be in many parts of chennai to go for a good restaurant.
The place is in a quiet residential area of East Anna nagar( 6th street) very close to main round Tana. From outside, the view of the restaurant is not so good, which is in the first floor of the building with carpeted staircase( photo attached). Inside ambience is quiet a contrast to the outside and it was an impeccably maintained dining hall and the staff attired in decent uniform. The modern kitchen is visible through a glassed wall.
We had ordered mutton Biriyani. it was served with the usual side dishes, Raitha and brinjal item. The Mutton Biriyani was excellent with the right mix of spices(not too spicy) and flavour and basmati rice. The mutton also was good. This is one of the very good Biriyani restaurants in Chennai.

I have been visiting this restaurant frequently from past 2 years. Staffs are so friendly. Very clean place . Priced as per their product taste. They have one bread desert which is sooo yummmyyy . The only barrier is elderly people can't go there. Since it's in first floor and don't have any lifts.

Al Maza in Annanagar serves authentic Indian cuisine. It is run by 3 brothers and at any point of time, one of them will be there to attend to you. Their speciality is Mutton Biriyani and Kebabs. I wanted the Panneer cooked in a different style and they readily obliged. It is a nice place for a quiet lunch or dinner with family and friends!

First floor restaurant.. Climbing up an old fashioned rusty staircase, at 1pm on a Friday with no other customers than jus us dint quite impress me on th start. Well, the Waiters warmly served us a So-called welcome drink (buttermilk). On the first though I realised it's a Indianised restaurant even before checking out their menu card. God the buttermilk was Spicy. Why?! It's meant to be cooling and not burning for got sake! We calmly ordered food cos we got too hungry to worry about that. Mutton Dum biriyani~ on the OK side. prawn curry ~ NOT FRESH PRAWNS.They were glassy and chewy. The curry was bad. ₹440 for wat, was the first thing my head. Tandoori grilled chicken was SPICY SPICY.. BUT WHY CHEF?! The chicken was fresh & flavourful, but not convincing cos of the spice..We jus emptied 2 bottles of water jus to heal all the SPICE ever since we started our meal. t
The Waiters need to improve on their table service etiquette cos they were so clumsy while bothering our privacy removing items a day serving them in our table . Yet, the place is Clean. Definitely had the ambience I would expect from any restaurant I would want to go, so tat kept us pleased.

The restaurant is in antique style even the clock over there says that. Staffs are too friendly, we order for chicken briyani and exempted egg they compensated that with jamun. Falooda is mouth watering. Fish fingers are 80rs only. They even give welcome drink and papad.
