Spadix Bhai, I was speaking about the same outlet, that is near Ratnadeep Super Market on the Banjara Hills - Sri Nagar Colony road.

See my post, where I mentioned the road it's on. The name could be wrong, but the location isin't

Ok let me go back two posts (of mine). I said there's some naturals ice cream shop in Banjara Hills (which I know is close to Ohri's actually) which if I remember correctly is started by some fellow alums.

Then there's Naturals near Ratnadeep which you mentioned and I agreed is a great place but isn't the one I was referring to in the first place .

Something somewhere got confused but I was basically referring to a different outlet (with a different name) which also serves "organic" ice cream if we can call it that. I'll dig up some old emails to find that name.

Regards,
spadix

If my memory serves me right, then the name of the outlet is Natural Ice & Jelly

There's another outlet in Banjara Hills, which goes by the name New Zealand Naturals, which also serve ice creams

I know where the confusion started off... with the Name & Location, they both have the word's NATURAL & BANJARA HILLS common in them. That's where the whole confusion started

Nikhil, do try out Kabab Inn Haleem. You can meet Fleetmaster and you both can enjoy there. It really is good. Except that kachra bahut hai. You know a few bones, masala stuff, loads of kaju, kalimirch etc.

But, the meat mixed in pure ghee which he pours on top of it is heaven. I would rate this really good.

P.S: Btw, today planning to go for dinner to my old haunt " Reshmi's" and what i am going to order is also decided

If you are speaking about pure ghee, then you should see the Dollops of Pure Ghee the Guy at Deccan Paradise puts on top of Haleem. I've got EXTRA Fried Onions with loads of Kaju's the last time I went to DP. It's gonna rain Pure Ghee, Fried Onions and Kaju's at DP on Friday.

Visited "Reshmi" for dinner. Amazing experience as before. Even the Valet was happy to see me after such a long time

We ordered :-

Tomato Soups
Veg Corn Cheese Balls
Chicken Kalmi Kebab
Fresh Lime Sodas
Kadai Veg
Kheema Paratha/Gobi Paratha

Corn Cheese balls got bigger and much more delicious. Must Have

Kalmi Kebab, I would rate them, one of the best in our city. Juicy, Juicy, and more juicy

Kheema Paratha was good nothing spectacular and was big and stuffed with lots and lots of kheema and it was a mistake to order it. It ruined my dieting plans.

No idea about the bill as it was a treat from wifey

The place has been slightly renovated and looks much better. 1st floor owners have converted for private parties ( which was their living quarters as they moved out of that place).

Owner ( She) was pleased to see us and took us for a tour of the 1st floor premises. 35 Pax capacity and they take minimum 20 Pax.

Then we drove to DPS, Sikh Village and had the Kesar Dry Fruit Falooda. Another mistake by ordering this heavenly dessert. I decided to skip meals for next 2 days...LOL

Sounds like a good place. Nanking was an old favourite that went bust in the middle and has now roared back with a bang. I should try Reshmi's out soon.

How are the valet parking drivers? So far I've given BQ to only one valet driver that too in an unavoidable situation (BQ was obstructing the path of some other car).

Not the favorite joint out here. Treat this like a news bulletin.

Saw a board outside Hyderabad House today morning, Rs 199 for unlimited Haleem.

I don't see much point in it as most guys can barely finish 2 plates with 3 being the maximum. Cost of 3 plates is Rs 210. So you save Rs 11.

Nope. It's run by a punjabi husband and wife. Wife being the charmer and hubby a silent spectator

As your a veggie, you will love Reshmi. Very good food. Try their veg cheese corn balls ( superb). Their valet driver ( tall fellow) is very good. Quite gentle with the car.

I am yet to give my WA to a valet. I dont think i will do that anytime in near future

Hyderabad House and their pathetic marketing gimmicks. I wouldnt eat there even if someone treats me free.

Cafe Bahar Haleem comes at Rs.55/Plate. I can eat 3 plates and still save Rs.34 bucks and their haleem would be way better.

Thanks for the feedback, Avinash bhai!

It was unavoidable at GRT Somajiguda. Idiots have a very "squarish" parking cellar. Actually I shouldn't be so harsh on them because at least they *have* a covered park! So there was this Santro if I remember correctly behind which I parked, and both wife (selector) and I (purchaser ) had to go in. I had no option but to leave BQ with the valet.

A few days back we went to Mirchi on MG Road (or maybe the other outlet next to it). I refused valet parking and went and parked BQ myself in their underground cellar through that narrow road next to Ramgopalpet PS. Nice restaurant by the way, and good value for money. Typical Punjabi restaurant food of the kind I was used to as a bachelor a few years back in Bengaluru (Koramangala, Aangan restaurant).

There was a time when I used to like Hyderabad House biryani. The outlet near Minister Road circle was very good. The Madivala junction outlet in Bengaluru was decent too. Just yesterday however I ordered biryani and manchurian from the Miyapur outlet and while the service was very prompt (compared to my earlier experience) the food itself wasn't that great :(. It's just going downhill, this franchise.

Thankfully at least the quantities are good. It would've been insult to injury otherwise (or maybe it already is - being forced to eat too much of not-so-good stuff ).

+1 and 2 well-fed Punjabi children make up their family.

Quite good veggie food served there...my order, lately, has exclusively been masala papads followed by chopped mix-veg curry and their amazingly light phulkas.

I would surely recommend this place.

Cheers.
