Dear mobike008,

Nai mamu se nakta mamu sahi, as this hyderabadi idiom says.

betw: i have never been to bade miyan kebabs in Hyderabad, but i like Chicken Baida roti, boti kebab, mutton seekh kabab and gurda fry served at their colaba branch.I am not sure if the hyderabad branch is thier franchisee.
Agree with you Karims at Chandni Chowk is the best. Second best i like at Nizamuddin. I absolutely love their Burra Kebab

Another awesome place in Old Delhi is near the Bada ( near the red fort), there is a place famous for their chicken known is Chengezi Chicken.

Its a small joint and this gravy dish is cooked outside on a huge tavva and best part is its said to be cooked with only water, no oil.

This gravy dish is enjoyed with Khameri rotis and trust me this small joint makes better khameri rotis than Karims. I havent eaten a more tasty chicken gravy dish in my entire life.

This place is packed to brim in evenings and is even more crowded than Karims

Bade Miyan is not related to the on in Mumbai. There use to be a time when enjoy some soft drinks at Cafe Mondegar and then have kebabs at Bade Miyan in Colaba.

Try out the Bade Miyan in Hyderabad, its unique and quite tasty in its own way. The Original outlet at Tank Bund is much better ( reasonable too). Only grip the original outlet does not serve Patthar ka Ghost whereas the Somajiguda outlet does.

This morning while driving to work saw a board of Rs.199++ at SVM Mall at some 36 restuarant. Maybe you can try that.

Just opposite to SVM mall there is a place called Vilas Venue who serves buffet ( Veg and Non-Veg) for dinner and lunch at a standard price of Rs.150++ ( i think this is the price or maybe little higher).

Anyone tried Vilas Venue?

Default European Dining

Guys,

Any suggestions on dining options for authentic European Cuisines (Spanish, French, etc) in Hyderabad?

Sweet Nirvana is an option that I know of, but I believe they are more of a cafe and Italian place.

Suggestions are appreciated.

Cheers,

We were regulars at Vilas Venue till our office shifted to Ascendas in 2008. The variety of non-veg dishes and the desserts were really good at that place. But I haven't visited that place for over a year now.

Couple of guys from my team had a BAD Vilas Venue experience. I will be lynched if I suggest it.

SVM, sounds like a good idea.

Sweet Nirvana lunch buffet is horrible. Pathetic service and cold food.

Any comments on the TGiF 2 course meal.

Thanks a lot for this info.Will visit this place when i visit delhi next time.

If you happen to be in old delhi next time, please visit this stall in darya gunj, located near that monkey bridge (iron bridge), where ansari road begins. He sells only two items,chicken and fish with very spicy chutney and rumali roti.I am a regular at his place for the last 11 years.

Bade Miyan is not related to the on in Mumbai. There use to be a time when enjoy some soft drinks at Cafe Mondegar and then have kebabs at Bade Miyan in Colaba.

Agree with you on this.

Where at somajiguda.?

I have been there many times,its located above food world. Last year it was Rs (149, all inclusive) now it is 170. Infact we celebrated our first wedding anniversary there. Does not charge for kids below 10.Good food.

@Silverwood, Bade Miyan Kebab at Somajiguda is located bang opposite to Kalanikethan Wedding Mall Building at Somjiguda crossroads.

Another way of looking at it, it's next to Spar Supermarket and in same complex as Mainland China/Sigree etc.

And the Samajiguda location doesn't serve Chicken 65! They are both great from BM so you'll have to choose which taste you want to have that day.

Bade Miyan is one of my all time favorites to eat when I'm there.
