Abhiruchi Grill is among our favorite Indian restaurants in Culver City, and though they have an entire section of excellent biryani on the menu, our favorite is the one not listed on there - Vijayawada paneer biryani. Named for the city on the Krishna River in southeast India, this is a fairly mild biryani (even compared to others on Abhiruchi’s menu), but the paneer adds a certain savory-sweetness that makes it one of the most unique in LA.
