Like most other things lavish and decadent that Dubai is known for, the city is now home to the world’s most expensive biryani. Bombay Borough, an all-day modern Indian bar and eatery, is serving this generously portioned feast, clocking in at AED 1,000 or a cool Rs 20,000. Expensive? Sure, but it also promises a royal feast with all the fixings.

Served on a gold thaal, the massive biryani comes loaded with Kashmiri lamb seekh kebabs, old-Delhi lamb chops, Rajput chicken kebabs, succulent Mughlai koftas and malai chicken roast, served on a bed of saffron-infused biryani. The kebabs are topped with edible 23-karat gold leaf. If that’s not enough, the platter is served alongside five different gravies and accompaniments. Three different varieties of rice are used to lend this dish its unique flavour and texture. It can comfortably feed 5 to 6 people.
