Its in same building as " Mangatrai Pearls" and is located on 4th Floor.

Last evening, we had excellent food but,everything was Vegetarian. Another wierd thing about them is they serve Sugarcane Juice only on Fridays.

Try their Nimbu Paneer Tikka, Palak Kebab Pattice, Spring Rolls. All were excellent in taste.
The ony serve Vegetarian ! chalo have to look out for something else then. After traveloholics description of gufaa,i cant stop drooling!

I was not clear in my description. Our group were all veggies except me. hence, had to go for vegetarian food. They do serve NV food

Gufaa is proven place for good north indian kebabs and cuisine with a dungeon ambience so you may check that out as well.

Had been to PAKVAAN for lunch with my colleagues.(SILVERWOOD +3)
Spoke to Hameed bhai from the office and ordered the following dishes, asked him to keep them ready in 20 mins

1, Full Tandoori Chicken.
2, Full Chicken 65.
3, Mutton Roghan Josh
4, Rumali roti-4 no's &
5, Egg biriyani

The order was ready when we reached and my colleagues devored TC in no time.
I was surprised to see that Muttonpeices in Roghan Josh were boneless and it was yummy.Chicken 65 was average, but spicy.

Total damages:Rs 460 + 50 tips.

I believe the Mutton Pieces were boneless because it was ordered through Mr. Hamid. Else, it would have been like what I experienced. All bones and no meat

Yes, this could be the reason why it was served boneless.
I have told Hameed bhai regarding your recent ordeal and he said he will take care and act accordingly.

Last evening went to "Mayabazar" and the pleasant sardarji made sure our meal was even better than last time.

We ordered the following :-

Tomato Soup ( 1/2) : Rs.55
Shangai Crispy Veg : Rs.100
Kheema Balls : Rs.90
Stuffed Paneer in Capsicum : Rs.115
Water Bottle : Rs.15
Thumbs Up ( 3 No's) : Rs.60
Masala Kulcha and Rotis

Total Damages ( 3 People) : 510 ( Including a good tip)

Entire food was outstanding with special mention to Shanghai Crispy Veg which had a distinct and unique flavour

Mom loved their Mixed Veg Kulcha and I loved the Kheema Balls

I confessed my unhappiness with Sardarji that i never get to taste their Biryani despite my third visit. He mentioned, it gets finished very fast as its popular and he promised to make sure i am served next time i am there.

Evening was wrapped up by Faloodas from DPS. Heavenly is the right word !!!

Btw, Shashank ( Telugu Film Star and Owner drives same car as mine)

Folks, we should have a dinner meet here soon. Food is awesome and as you can see the prices are more than VFM.

Last evening, it was a circus!

Left home late in evening and booked a ticket in Prasads for a 11pm movie and thought we had time so went to Mayabazar for dinner.

Long waiting and no biryani available. Took the number of Sardarji ( to check in advance in future) and said i told him will visit on sunday evening for their biryani but, still it got over. Admonished him a little and left.

Next pit stop @ Pakwaan.

Pakwaan too had long waiting but, they accomodated me when i said was a friend of Mr.Hamid and i was getting late for movie. There was a large group of folks who too were his friends and one of them was a Tamil movie star ( didnt recognize him)

Quickly gobbled down the Tandoori Chicken and Mutton Biryani and drove rally-driver style to reach the theatre in time.

Food was good as usual but, the circumstances didnt allow me to enjoy my meal

Had lunch at Zafraan Exotica, Rd 12, Banjara Hills.
Buffet at Rs 315 including taxes.
They did add a Service Charge component as well.

Anyways food was decent and everyone liked it a lot. I have some allergic reaction to hotel gravies. So was unable to enjoy the meal. Damn. I can eat as much meat as I want, but I try the gravies and my stomach gets messed up. Anyways, after the meal, they gave a gift voucher for Mozzarella. Voucher worth Rs 500. Can be used for bills greater than 1,000.

So with this in hand, Mozzarella, I will pay you a visit soon.

For dinner picked up a ATC aka Arabic Tandoori Chicken from Dine Hill.
Full chicken costs 185, half costs 110. No points for guesses what I bought.
Good as usual.

Souther Spice. I feel this is a highly under rated restaurant. Located in Banjara Hills Rd 2, they have impeccable service levels and the food is very well priced. A veg thali would cost you around 150 and a special non veg around 250. The food is a little spicy but totally worth it.

I guess you mean "Southern Spice"? I agree it was always an awesome restuarant and they are pioneers in introducing the andhra cuisines to Hyderabad. I used to be a regular visitor for lunches some years ago as my office was in lane next to TOI office.

What i dont agree is their pricing is reasonable. Maybe now it may sound reasonable because we have come to terms with a dish priced at Rs.180 as reasonable but, their pricing was like that since many years ago. Now their rates just balanced out.

They are known for their spicy food

Btw, I think its a must visit to ZE for that 500 bucks voucher. Is it one 500 bucks voucher per person who avail the lunch buffet?
