Yes the shawarmas were pretty much good and so were the stuffed parathas.

Avi,y dont you try the Chinese Pavilion.I particularly love the CP rice and some of their other dishes,I a die hard fan of the placeIts in the basement of the Fribzi Bldg,opp Vengal Rao park.

Thai Express is a rip-off,the price to quantity ratio is really bad and surprisingly they dont have some of the popular dishes as well,bad scene.

Lebanese,try out this new place called All Seasons on Banjara road 3,its quite a nice place,definitely not disappointin.

Its good to see a review of Banna Nawab. You should have tried the Patthar Ka Gosht there, awesome.

Btw, you didnt mention how was the grub that you had?

After your previous review been to CP several times and i totally agree, its a great place to have good chinese food at reasonable rates.

Will check out "All Seasons" thanks for the lead.


Yesterday night around 1:30AM me and 3 friends went to Hampshire Plaza for their buffet. Surprisingly, they have closed their midnight buffet. Looks like this happened due to low footfalls.

So went to a small joint ( till date dont even know the name of this place....) that i been to several times in past which is located at Chaderghat. If anyone interested, i can give directions but, please dont ask me the name of this restuarant


Great place for late night "Saasta and Tikau Food"

We had Butter Chicken, Kadia Chicken, Butter Naans, Rotis and Chicken Biryani

Honestly speaking this place is highly recommended for late night hunger pangs and is much better than Niagara, Shadab or any similar place where they serve crap after 9PM

I am sure you know this place.

At Chaderghat crossroads, take the road that goes to Dabirpura and as soon as you enter that road, there is a mosque right in middle of road, take the round about that mosque and when you come out on other side.

This place is immediately on your right hand side.

Been there everytime in the past always after 1AM ( been there once at 3AM too and food was available)and usually was not in a stage to read the restuarant name

Trust me, no other place in hyderabad can serve you hot delicious butter naans and rotis along with decent tasting chicken curries at those hours.

Please remember that most restaurants especially the smaller ones in old city area serve beef and not mutton.

If you order a mutton dish and it has no bones, chances are its beef.

I doubt, if you would be able to recognize it during the day time. The mood and the situation would be different. If you are planning to go during the day time, then I think you should replicate and do the nightly honour's in the morning itself before going there in the afternoon

Seriously, when I see them pounding my ice cream, I recollect my Dhobi washing the clothes & I think the ice cream should be called as Dhobi Pachaa'd Ice Cream

+1 on that. That's the main reason, why I stick to Chicken or Egg or Veg during late night dinners at these outlets. Can't take the risk you know.

+1 to That.

@ Nikhil: You need to have Beef Chilly prepared Mallu style to know what you are missing!

After a quick discussion with my better half, have decided to go to Firdaus today but will be going much before mid night. Anybody else willing to join in?
