Dude, better go alone or with friends. That place is "definetly not" for ladies.

Me and Nikhil are staunch on that aspect. I too cannot eat beef or for that matter any other exotic meat even if offered a million bucks.

Why don't you check out Shahdab opposite Madina.

Its got a decent seating area in the first floor. Very GOOD briyani. In fact its my favourite.

You can also park your vehicle a little distance away and walk back to Shahdab.
Don't miss the Falooda.

True, that place isin't a family type of place. Its for those, who wander out late in the nights, searching for food to satiate their hungry pangs at the devilish hours of the night.

+1 on that Avi. I would rather walk off hungry than having beef.

Have heard loads about it from my Mallu friends, but it doesnot tempt me that much to have something that has beef in it. I would rather have a Mutton Chilly Fry made at home

If you are willing to drive uptil Shadab, then I would suggest you drive a little further uptil Malakpet to Hotel Sohail - WAVES. It has an even better ambience with equally awesome food. Try their Boneless Mutton Biryani, its ohhhhhh! wow!

Imran,

Me & Missus have had food at both Shadab and Madina quite a few times. Actually I don't like their Biryani.

Cheers

Speaking of faloodas,if anybody's from the Karkhana-Trimulgherry area then theres this pushcart guy who comes at around 6pm and stays till around 11pm,he stations himself opposite ICICI,Karkhana and his brother stands opp Acer Motors,they serve what I call " the world's best faloodas"they have come in from Mumbai and the rush at their cart has become 10 fold now,amazing faloodas..a must try if you happen to pass by.

MC,the best biriyani in Banjara now a days must be Paradise!!!(even though technically they are on Masab Tank:P)apparently they are not able to open the seatin section because of lack of parking space.If you are ok with the mughlai type of biriyani then Punjabi by Nature is decent

Bang on! Its the same Sohail, that's near the Flyover, when you are going towards Saidabad. They have a seperate A/C Section for Family Dining.

The first thing I liked as soon as I walked in was, the Live Tandoor Counter on the floor, that was seperated by Glass. You can actually see the Chef's making your Kebabs/Roti's. Have seen it at lot of places, but this one seemed different.

Their food is excellent in general but not their biryani.

Try Sarvi (opp. Care hospital). Whatever happened to Banjara Durbar (next to Y2K)?

The closest from Raj Bhavan Rd. would be Parwaaz & Asian.

Sarvi does not have a food section at Banjara Hills. (have things changed so much after I shifted out of Banjara Hills? )

Good Biryani & Chicken in Banjara -
Why not try Dine Hill? The first floor restaurant is family restaurant with decent crowd.
Hyderabad House on Rd. No. 3 Corner (The only Hyd House which serves better Biryani in Hyd, Compared to the other branches, IMO)
I used to like the mutton Biryani from Khansama. I think they opened a branch at Rd.No. 10 Jubilee Hills.

I also thought Sarvi was only a bakery opp Care Hospital but still went. No signs of any type of Biryani. So went to Dinehill. I had gone there earlier once and had liked their Mutton Biryani. Ordered the same today but the Biryani was more like Mutton Fried Rice with only 4 small pieces of meat
The Chicken 65 was just about ok.

I asked him for Home Delivery and he said minimum order of 600. I felt like . Looks like East or West Y2K is the best!

Am planning to order Naatu Kodi (jungleeeee murgi) Biryani today. Heard there's some guy at Jubilee Hills, who home delivers it. Planning to order a couple of Biryani's today. Heard its heavenly, shall run a quick test on that factor and post the results here soon. Shall also post other details about this biryani and contact number of that guy.

Went to Coco's @ kbr park yesterday evening:

Had:

Appollo fish
Cajun Prawns
Fish fingers with tarter sauce ( sauce was so yummy i am thinking of buying it from them to use in bread makhan style)
Pepper Chicken

Free flow of beverages clubbed the above.

The place has this nice lovey dovey kinda decor. I loved the singer..he was singing good numbers.

Total INR 2000 for 2.(Beverages were on the higher side in terms of pricing)

I don't why but I love Shahdab's biryani.

Maybe you guys need to ask for them to serve it a bit dry and without oil.
I assume that the waiter guy looks at you guys, decides oily would be preferred and serves it that way.
Just an assumption.

Because once in Bangalore, I mentioned to a waiter that I am from Hyderabad. It was a typical mixed cuisine tandoori/ mughlai/ chinese take away.

He gave me 3 packets of chilly flakes with the food saying, sorry sir, the cook forgot to make it spicy and you guys eat more chilly.
