On SP road,when going towards Begumpet from Paradise,take a left after Nallis showroom on your left(opp Shoppers Stop which is on your right),a few 100meters down the road,you would find the restaurant on your right!

They have a halwa on the menu which is quite a must eat one,cant exactly remember what was it:(

Health Lovers.

Road Number 36, Jubilee Hills. In the same complex that houses Levi's and Cakes&Bakes.

This is not a typical restaurant. They are a healthy alternative.
Decent seating area in a lounge styling. Very comfortable sofa's and a some newspapers to keep you engaged.

I have been there twice. Both times took food as takeaways. Satisfied both times in terms of quality and quantity.

Pasta Arabiata: Very well made and a little spicy. Rs 100.
Immunity Booster: A drink made of lemon, oranges, apple and spinach. Rs 60.

Chicken Salad: I picked it up on my way to office. Just finished it and the quantity is good for one person. Lots of olives and nice chunky pieces of chicken. Also had cucumber, carrots,onions etc. I had asked them to go easy on the mayonnaise. It was a good healthy alternate to the food in my office cafeteria.

Chicken Hawaiian Salad: Rs 100. Pretty much like the chicken salad but contains some pineapples etc. Picked it up for a colleague of mine. She is not yet in, so I don't know how it tastes. But looks good. Rs 90.

I am especially happy with this place as its on my daily route to office. With decent space to park and a nice ambiance while waiting to pick up food.

There is a branch functioning opposite LV Prasad Eye Hospital beside Heritage Fresh.
They are also opening another branch. Some where near Beyond Coffee.

For the body builders. They have different types of Whey drinks as well.

Simple direction : Bang Opposite Shoppers Stop you will see an arch which advertises SHOLAY..Get inside the arch and 100 meters inside its on your right.

No idea about desserts as i generally dont order them. But, i am told all desserts are superb.

Enjoy!

Please ask him to make this dish semi spicy, off-late Bathinda de Kukkad is dumped with green chillies.

You may also want to try Chicken Tikka Masala.

The name of maitre' d is Mr. Ranjan.

The halwa I think is gajar ka halwa or it could also be moong dal ka halwa.

Thanks for seconding my thought, Waseem. I thought only I felt that Sholay has started making food extra spicy. And it was the thought of chillie-full food that detered me the whole of last week from venturing anywhere near Sholay.

Rogan josh

Inviting experiences of restaurants serving of the famous Kashmiri dish Rogan Josh in the twin city. Not the hot Andhra version but the authentic Kashmiri version.

Which joints serve the best rogan josh ?

I have a simple answer.'NONE'

Rogan josh is flavoured with 'Ratan jote' which is a dry bark of a tree found in Kashmir Valley which gives it the color along with Kashmiri Chillies and saffron.

Rogan in 'Rogan Josh' is the red color oily layer that forms after it is cooked.

The only place that i truly enjoyed Rogan Josh is at " Angeethi". Way better than any other place in Hyderabad.

Head straight to that place!

Whewwwww (that was all of us heaving a sigh of relief)

Glad to know the positive review but, for the advice we all gave you, we would have expected a little more detailed review ( read dish by dish) of your experience.

I am particularly interested to know if you too found the food spicy?

Havent been there in a while as wifey isnt keeping well who loves to go ONLY to Sholay !!!

Portion was sufficient for 4 adults. Was already feeling very full and effect of soda water skipped the deserts completely and we were the last to walkout at 12.15am ,wanted to try naturals icecream mentioned by waseem bhai ,could not locate the place . anyways there is always a next time .
