Shanghai Chef- Please avoid- it is pretty crap.

Sweet Nirvana- fairly decent deserts, food OK OK, ambience great, prices on the higher side. I happen to know the owner.

Last evening went out for drinks and dinner with a close friend who came down from US. We went to a place called Sai Prakash in Nampally. It's like a 2 * property and has good ambience and tasty food. I use to go there for drinks quite a few times in the past.

We had :

Black Dog Scotch - 6 Pegs ( Bloody reasonable price of Rs.200 for a 60ML)
Tawa Fish ( Rs.200)
Andhra Fish Fry ( Rs.185)
Chicken Tikka Masala ( Rs.185)
Rotis
Egg Fried Rice ( Rs.140)

Bill was approximately Rs.2000

Fish was absolutely fabulous and we just wanted to have fish and my friend started relishing good fish since our trip to Goa together this year in february.

Nice cozy place for discussion and relaxation as no music et.all.

Soups are good - main course - not so much!

Don't know if this qualifies - more like desert place - went to Sweet Nirvana (next to State Gallery of Art - Madhapur) last night - severe case of sweet tooth!

The ambience was lovely - there was real grass under my feet! Quite a rarity in the age of the concrete jungles. Options to sit both inside & outside on a sprawling lawn & pretty creative nooks & sitting options.

Had an apple pie with cinnamon icecream & one of their in-house sundaes - both were heavenly. However, the price tag is anything but heavenly :-) deserts range from just over a hundred rupees to just over 300. They also have salads & main course by the way - none of which we tried.

Well, you have Utsav that serves veg buffets. It's located near Lamba theatre, but their fare is a bit on the expensive side.
There is one more restaurant at Ameerpet on Dharam Karan Road. It is the first buiding on the right of D K Road as soon as you turn into that road from the Green Park road. It starts with 'A'. Is it Amravati...? I've visited that place twice, but the last time was 3 years ago. The food was awesome--the type you get in coastal Andhra

andhra food is not all non-veg, bhai saab! there are great veggie options too, which are also available in the usual non-veg restaurants (if you look beyond chaapa or kodi ).

next time you visit an andhra restaurant ask for Ulava Chaaru, gutti vankai and a paapu apart from the non-veg curries!

but its not "andhra" food. Utsav (and Chutneys), like most other restaurants, offers a generic "south indian" buffet that is neither here nor there. there is nothing called a "south indian meal". every state in south india has a distinct cuisine.

I have been to the same restuarant on the corner of DK road and found the food really good. But, i dont recall its name and it is not only andhra and most definetly not a wholly veggie restuarant

it used to be 100% veggie in its earlier avtar as "Annalakshmi", a south indian veggie thali place. since last couple of yrs, it changed management, name n cuisine.

Being a full bred punjabi does not allow you to consume such un-meaningful things. Definition of food takes a whole new meaning to them

I know as part of my family is punjabi

No, it was a hotel named 'Athithi Inn'. I don't know if it is still there. It used to serve pure Andhra Veg Thali food, in good ambience.

Annalakshmi was good too.
