    The love for biryani in Hyderabad is unmatched, with it being the most-ordered dish on food delivery apps. However, there have been recent complaints from customers about finding lizards and cockroaches in their food from restaurants and online orders.

    In one incident, a customer found a dead cockroach in the biryani served at a popular buffet restaurant in Jubilee Hills. This shows that even renowned restaurants lack proper hygiene in their kitchens. The customer filmed the incident, raised the issue with the restaurant staff, and shared it online with GHMC and other departments.
