While festivals bring out merriment and goodwill among city folks, they also bring about a huge appetite for a hearty meal. With Eid just around the corner, everyone has got Moist Kebabs and fragrant Biryanis on their mind. Eid Ul Adha is commonly referred to as Bakri Eid and on this occasion, meat is kept for consumption at home, to be given to friends and then distributed to the needy. If you do not have any friends that can send some across then these restaurants are your best bet. These are some of our favourites where we know you will enjoy a stunning meal this Eid.
No restaurants celebrate regional Indian cuisine the way The Bombay Canteen does and this Eid they have got a special treat. They have a big community feast featuring 12 dishes from different parts of India using all parts of the goat. A Nose to Tail Meal with flavours from communities across India from Kashmir all the way to Tamil Nadu. It is a feast unlike any other and the perfect way to celebrate Eid.
For a lot of people that really enjoy their Biryani the most perfect one is the Dum Pukht Biryani that is a fragrant dream of tender bits of lamb cooked to perfection. Eid demands a celebration at the restaurant offers a variety of superior dishes apart from its signature biryani that is all fit for a celebration.
With the dramatic view of the city in the background, perched 18 floors high, Kangan at the Westin Mumbai Garden City is a fabulous choice for a meal this Eid. If you have a craving for Mughlai or Awadhi style food then this restaurant is ideal. Each dish is prepared perfectly with recipes that are well guarded and much sought after. Palak E Nazakat, Gucchi Pulao, their signature Dal Kangan, Kache Gosht ki Biryani and so much more to choose from that will ensure you have a memorable Eid.
It is next to impossible to have a bad meal at Zaffran and for Eid any of their multiple outlets across the city work as a good choice for a family meal out. The Raan Biryani works well if there are big eaters as it is a dish best kept to share with 4 or 6 people. Ample tikkas, tandoori choices and gravies along with a host of breads to mop it all up. It is a restaurant where you can enjoy a good meal this Eid with your family and friends that would not burn a hole in your pocket once the bill arrives, which is always a great combination.

While Persian Darbar is not the first choice for a celebratory meal there is no denying that this restaurant serves up delicious food that can not be dismissed. Forget visiting the restaurant but if you are entertaining at home or just want a good meal in the comfort of your own home then they are ideal. The Raan Biryani is stellar and worthy of any celebration but all their kebabs and tandoori dishes are equal showstoppers.
