Old Dhaka was famed for its lines of beryani restaurants. Some of the more famous outfits are still going. Hajjee Beryani in old Dhaka revels in its eccentric reputation for opening only at certain times and only cooking a certain amount (well below demand).
The most conveniently located restaurant where you can sample beryani (meat cooked in butter rice and delicate spices) Fakhruddin’s in Gulshan 1. The Kacchi Beryani there is absolutely delicious. The equally delicious roast chicken isn’t really roasted but is a dry and spicy preparation and is a good accompaniment to the beryani.
If you want to savour local flavour, and do so safely, you can’t do better than Fakhurddin’s. They have a catering section for parties and functions, and the prices are reasonable.
