Have you ever had one of those days when you just craved 'biye bari food'? You just want the familiar food, but in the particular taste that can only be found at weddings. As unlikely as it sounds, one does not have to wait for a wedding anymore for such a treat. BiyeBari Restaurant now offers those dishes whenever you want them.
What is BiyeBari?
BiyeBari is a thematic restaurant that has been designed on the theme of a wedding reception. Thematic restaurants are not very common in our country, but BiyeBari is not just built on the theme in focus, rather the theme is the main concept of this restaurant. As a result, you will feel like you really are at a wedding.
The Story of BiyeBari
"I was craving biye bari food myself and could not find that particular taste anywhere. So, I started thinking about substitutes. Where can I find food that tastes like it's from a biye bari and the answer was very simple — you find biye bari tasting food only at biye baris. So, I thought why not start something that will bring that biye bari feeling along with the food?", said Atiya Rahman Pushpo, Founder and CEO of BiyeBari Restaurant who is an entrepreneur and a mother.
BiyeBari Restaurant first started in 2017 at Dhanmondi and was well received. Following that, BiyeBari opened another outlet at Mirpur. The outlet was inaugurated on 3 September. Actress Apu Biswas attended the ceremony celebrated by cutting a cake with Atiya Rahman Pushpo, founder of the enterprise.
BiyeBari stays true to its name through and through. From the moment you step in the restaurant, you will truly have the feeling of being at a wedding. There is a specially decorated wedding gate at the very entrance. The walls are colourfully decorated with flowers decorating the place; resembling the vibe of a wedding. The brightly lit interior cleverly uses fairy lights and coloured lights to make the place festive. The waiters are all wearing pagris.
BiyeBari Mirpur boasts a setup that can seat 300 guests at a time. As you wait for the food after ordering, you might want to take a walk around the place. Stages have been decorated and setup with focus lights so it's convenient for you to take photos should you want. There's also a separate prayer zone and kids' zone for your convenience.
Now to the most important part — the food. BiyeBari boasts of a three-layered kitchen that is visible from the sitting area. They maintain a very healthy and organised cooking area to ensure healthy food. Fact to keep in mind, there will be no foreign dishes offered here.
The menu is just like you would expect at a wedding. From rice dishes like kachchi, tehari and morog polao, to meat dishes like beef and mutton rezala, mutton leg roast, achari beef, kala bhuna or even chicken jhal fry — all are available here. Even fish items such as rupchanda, hilsa, rui mach fry, chingri macher malaikari or even vegetables, one can choose from a wide variety of items that are usually found at weddings.
The meal is elevated to a true wedding theme meal with the additional items on the menu. From their options of sweets and drinks, you can either order firni or borhani or anything else but what truly puts an icing on the whole arrangement is the option of paan (betel leaf).
Customers can walk in at BiyeBari Restaurant anytime they like. Or one can also reserve the restaurant for an actual wedding. BiyeBari already boasts of having successfully hosted hundreds of weddings and already looking forward for the next challenge. Reservations has to be made at least 10 days prior to the event and one can modify the menu for an event if they wish.
One can also order online if they are not feeling particularly social.
