Nilar has its humble beginnings in 1960 in a small leased shop on Anawrahta Street, Yangon, Myanmar. People from every corner of Yangon would travel to this shop to savor the perfect biryani. People have fond memories of the pleasure of every bite of the biryani. They loved the delicious biryani, painstakingly made with specially selected spices and herbs. The unmistakable aroma of Nilar biryani has since won the hearts of many Yangonites, both young and old.
