Fourteen branches in Chennai dishing out 7,000 plates of biryani a day! With Biryani that is so good you know you have to taste it to believe it.
The Thalappakatti Biriyani Hotel's roots can be traced all the way back to 1957. Founded by Mr. Nagasamy Naidu under the name Anandha Vilas Biriyani Hotel in Dindigul. He always wore a turban called THALAPA(a traditional head dress), which over the years became synonymous with his brand and cooking styles, leading him to earn the nick name "Thalappakatti Naidu" which would eventually became the name of the brand.The unswerving nature and mouth watering taste of Thalappakatti Biriyani can be attributed to the fact that all the ingredients were prepared by Thalappakatti Naidu, himself and took great care in doing so. Despite its roots going back 50 years, his cookery style and secrets passed down to his family members are followed strictly meticulously and thereby have ensured that the "Thalappakatti Biriyani" taste remains unchanged.
