‘Khana Khazana’ Hyderabadi Restaurant – Al Khobar

I think I’ve covered almost every Hyderabad Restaurant in Dammam & Khobar except for this place. I have dined at ‘Khana Khazana’ before but in Riyadh and this time, I joined my colleagues for lunch to dine at their branch in Al Khobar. 

We had to wait until prayer time to finish to gain entry and it must have taken 2-3 minutes to fill up. There is no separate family section but they do have partitions which can be deployed at a moment’s notice. 

We had to wait almost 30-40 minutes to get our food though and I believe most of the other diners had already placed their order in advance. This is something you should considering doing if you plan on checking out this place during peak hours. 

We ordered,

  1. ‘Mutton Biryani’ Family Pack (3-4 people) – SR. 60
  2. ‘Beef Bhuna Hua’ – SR. 25
  3. ‘Chicken 65’ – SR. 19
Family Pack ‘Mutton Biryani’3 to 4 persons

The ‘Mutton Biryani’ Family Pack can easily feed 3 very hungry people or 4 people and this is great value considering it’s cheaper when you split it 4 ways. I love how it comes topped with ‘Chicken 65’ and this is quite a flavour enhancer. The meat is tender and the masala is rendered beautifully but it could have done with a few more pieces of meat. 

The ‘Beef Bhuna Hua’ packs some heat but has a ton of flavour at the same time. I loved how well it goes with the free chapatti that they serve and the only drawback that I felt was that the meat wasn’t tender enough. This would go amazingly well with some plain rice. 

The Mediocre ‘Chicken 65’

The ‘Chicken 65’ was just ok. It was a bit too salty for my liking but works well when you mix it with the Biryani. The chicken is cooked well though so it’s just a matter of seasoning.

Which is your favourite Hyderabadi Restaurant?
