Legend's Claypot Briyani House @ Puchong Jaya

Marketing and Promotion segment on Indian radio channels has vastly picked up. Besides the standard Tamil dramas and songs, it has become an avenue for Indian companies to promote their health boosters, hair tonics claimed as produced with Himalaya herbs and flowers and recently, every so often, the blaring Legend's Clayport Briyani advertisement. Each time I listened to the sensational advertisement, my mouth automatically starting watering. So, I couldn't wait and with the family, I came over this nearest to us Puchong outlet instead of driving to Brickfields and Serdang.

Upon parking across the restaurant, we actually couldn't identity Legend. From the outside, this corner lot air-conditioned Legend, honestly, wasn't as impressive as the advertisement. Likewise, the interior walls showcased the brand's popularity but cramped the dining area with tables close to each other. Thus, if you want dine here, forget about privacy and the Indian customers, the moment the entrance doors are opened, they will stare and then continue eating. 

The menu, another legendary marketing tool offering other items besides the signature claypot briyani, ranging from seafood, mutton, chicken and vegetarian. We ordered four types of claypot briyani and drinks, each opted for their own - orange juice, limau panas, ice limau and sky juice. 

Service I absolutely was irritated with. So close I was to calling again, after more than 15 minutes, the dishes were served. Thereafter quite a blur-blur moment because every variety looked the same once the claypot covers were removed. Good question from the family - which is which? Oh-hei, I don't know too, thus, lets play the treasure hunt by digging deep down. And sure, the hidden treasured sotong, mutton, fish and prawn surfaced. Now, whichever briyani you opt for, its similar components - grainy yellow-orange hue rice cooked with spices, atop with a boiled egg and the sides, raita, sambar or curry and two papads.    
Briyani Sotong
Briyani Mutton
Briyani Fish
Briyani Prawn
Mutton was soft and chewable, the tiny winy fish overcooked and rubbery, the prawns and sotong just so-so and the beriyani rice was clearly the winner  - lovely and delicious. To end our meal, we shared two masala tea, a plate of kesari and one jalebi. 

The sweets/desserts and tea earned a satisfactory rating and as said, beriyani rice worth raving and service should be improved. We paid RM106.00 and left:
