Bawarchi Biryani Point

BawarchiThe Food You Love… the tradition we follow… is the theme behind this popular Indian restaurant in Fort Collins. It is about family and tradition.  Authentic Indian Cuisine. Eating here feels like spending time in a neighborhood diner in India where Indian art, elephants, statues and sweet strains of traditional Indian music accent the casual and relaxed dining room.

Bawarchi Biryani Point has something for everyone, from those who are experiencing their first taste of Indian food to those who keep coming back to enjoy the huge variety of flavorful Indian specialties. Their menu is extensive, reasonably priced, and is designed to suit meat-lovers and vegetarians alike. Fourteen different types of tasty Biryanis, tempting Tandoori Sizzlers (clay oven), Indo-Chinese Specialties, and South and North Indian favorites top the list.

The owner, Saiprasad Palusa said what makes the restaurant unique is the mix of different Indian flavors with fresh ingredients and authentic Indian masala (spices) that are exported all the way from his hometown in Hyderabad India. This is home cooking at its finest. Savory dishes that are sometimes spicy, sometimes sweet, but always with an earthly goodness.


Like any country’s cuisine, Indian food varies in flavor and preparation from one area to the next. Northern and Southern India have food differences as obvious to Indians as the difference for Americans between the foods from the coastal regions of the Pacific Northwest to the foods of the deep South.

Southern Indian menu is a rarity in most areas as most Indian restaurants are dominated by Northern Indian curries and breads such as naan and roti.  Dosa, Idly, Vadas and Uthappams are delectable Southern Indian creations that currently can only be enjoyed in Northern Colorado at Biwarchi Biryani.

Dosas are a real labour of love as making them entails soaking the lentils, grinding them and letting them ferment overnight. Wonderful as ever, the classic Masala Dosa is a crispy savory crepe made with fermented lentil flour and stuffed with a dense pile of gently spiced mashed potatoes, tinged to a beautiful golden shade. They have over 15 variations of Dosas for you to choose from.


Remember to also try the very popular deep-fried Medu Vada, shaped like a donut with a hole in the middle and served with sambar (Lentil Soup) & different types of sauces (chutneys).
