I am thinking of food in Hyd from places like (Abhiruchi, Southern Mirchi, Spice Venue, RR, Kritunga etc).
Swathi, Nanda's and Andhra Spice in HSR layout are good, in that order. Nandini and Meghana Foods in Koramangala are one of the best in the city.

. Talking of just food.

Sometimes when we go out with friends for lunch and one of them happens to gets home food (as people carry food to office regularly). In such cases was checking if there are any places where someone can carry home dabbas also + buy something at that location.

Expecting too much

Ok, the question makes more sense now. I guess you would have to do this on an individual hotel by hotel basis and explain the situation to the management / maitre d. Doubtful, because few people ever ask or try this, but worth a shot.

Sorry about the previous question which has been deleted out due to the rules, was genuinely confused.

Yeah, that would be some difficult part.

Sorry, even I missed on the rules part.

No problem about the rules. I forgot about it. My bad.

Anyway, I guess hotels might be understanding if you went in a big group and there was one or two people out of say 10 to 15 who had dabba's. If it was like 5 out of 10, they would probably turn you down.

Try it and let us know what happens. Be interesting to see the result.

Hi All,

I along with couple of friends had visited a new restaurant - Dimsum & More at Koramangala, Opp Bhima Jewellers, JNC Road. The interiors are warm and contemporary. The restaurant serves oriental dishes. We ordered both Veg and Non-Veg dishes. The taste of all the dishes were fantastic - right amount of salt, no msg etc and the best part is the pricing. VFM, I would say.

Me and my wife went to Copper Chimney @ the Inorbit Mall, Whitefield on Saturday. I found it highly overpriced.

Ordered the following (pure veg):

Starter: Makai Malai Seekh - was okish, nothing special.

Main Course:

2 Garlic Naans - Good
Paneer Masala - Paneer was soft but gravy was buttery, not too great
Dal Maharaja - Just normal black dal, oily, not too great
Banarasi Pulao - Plain basmati rice with some veggies sprinkled here and there. Okish

Dessert : Muzzafar - Basically Rabdi with raw vermicelli sprinkled on top.

Total damages: Rs. 1533 for two people. Not at all worth the money. The service was great though.

They serve buffet only Monday - Friday.

But the main course was very plain is what i felt!

Will try your suggestions sometime soon!
I would strongly suggest Ramanas at Cunnigham Road in HM Geneva House & second option is Gokul Kuttera on CMH road. These are some of the best pure Veg restaurants i would recommend

i strongly recommend take away chinese food from "chung's kitchen" at sadashivnagar mini market (behind croma store , near mekhri circle) , especially for some fine chicken fried rice and chilly chicken. great taste & excellent value for money and quite hygenic consistently. been a loyal customer since 1987.

Nice to know these guys are still operating. I was not a direct customer, but we always used to order for home delivery whenever we visited my aunt's house in Sadashivanagar. Loved it everytime

I think the best option in these cases is to go to a food court, no ?
