The story of Biye Bari
“I was craving biye bari myself and couldn’t find that particular taste anywhere. So, I started thinking about substitutes. Where can I find food that tastes like 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 feeling of biye bari with the food?” said Atiya Rahman Pushpo, founder and CEO of BiyeBari restaurant, who is an entrepreneur and a mother.
BiyeBari Restaurant started in 2017 in Dhanmondi and has been well received. Following this, BiyeBari opened another outlet in Mirpur. The point of sale was inaugurated on September 3. Actress Apu Biswas attended the ceremony celebrated by cutting a cake with Atiya Rahman Pushpo, founder of the company.
BiyeBari stays true to its name through and through. As soon as you enter the restaurant, you will really feel like you are at a wedding. There is a specially decorated wedding gate at the very entrance. The walls are decorated in bright colors with flowers decorating the place; resembling the atmosphere of a wedding. The brightly lit interior cleverly uses fairy lights and colored lights to make the place festive. The waiters all wear pagris.
BiyeBari Mirpur has a configuration that can accommodate 300 people at a time. While waiting for the food after ordering, you might want to take a walk around the area. The scenes have been decorated and set up with focus lights, so it’s convenient for you to take photos if you like. There is also a separate prayer area and a children’s area for your convenience.

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 usually found at weddings.
The meal is elevated to a true wedding-themed meal with additional items on the menu. Among their sweets and drink options, you can order firni or borhani or something else, but what really puts the icing on the cake is the paan (betel leaf) option.
