Sukkubhai biriyani was started by Mr. Abdul Khadar in 1975 at Alandur. A native of Nagapattinam district in Tamil Nadu, financial pressures drove him to seek his fortunes in Chennai. After trying his hand at various businesses he eventually decided to start a coffee stall at Alandur (Chennai). The stall became a success and the style of coffee he served earned him the name Sukkubhai. The stall later developed into a restaurant that specialized in biriyani and other south Indian cuisine. Through the hard work and dedication of Sukkubhai the restaurant gained fame and popularity all over Chennai. A huge blow to the restaurant came in the form of his demise in 1994. Then Mrs. Fathima the wife of Sukkubhai took over the reins and later handed it to Mr. Ali who is Sukkubhais son. At the age of 25 years, Mr. Ali took the responsibility of Sukkubhai Biryani with the brink of oblivion and by Allahs grace.
