This place is on First Lancer. Its the road between Khaja Mansion and Balaji Grand Bazaar.
There is a traffic signal at the entry.

The road you took is before the Maheswari Complex that houses Cafe 555. You may want to go back there during Ramzan for Haleem.

@huntrz:
Thanks buddy.

Any other place from where I can pick up breads etc.
I am not looking for a dine-in sort of place.

To pick up something on my way back home for my Daughter.

You enter the road. This place is just 20-30 meters inside it on the left hand side.
Its in the same compound as Khaja Mansion.
Opposite Harmain Medicals.

Wow! That was quite a rant

I am a huge fan of PKD and it never disappointed me till date. Yeah, maybe once in a while I did get some lackluster food but, i never wrote them off. Besides, never got an experience as bad as you wherein they threw in uncooked pieces of chicken in gravy etc.

I do agree their food is slightly oily but, then thats how it has been all the time. Their taste has maybe deviated 10%-20% but, it remains largely the same when they started out. However, their quantities have gone down considerably.

Haven't been there for a couple of months now. Will check them out again soon and report back with my findings.

Had awesome lunch at good old Reshmi's @parklane. The Smoked Chicken simply rocked and was a dish I never spotted in other punju joints. The Langarwali daal was also awesome.

Will have to visit again for the smoked chicken at least...

Out on the street it's either CnM Gachibowli or CnM Kondapur or the old-style bakery or two in the market near the flyover entrance. There is one other shop in the Vinayaka Nagar market itself, but I don't remember its name now. Look very closely near around ICICI and you should find it.

I find CnM very good for their price. They are similar to Big Byte, Daily Bread (Blr) etc. But you should ask for fresh cakes. They tend to have the odd cake that's been lying around for a couple of days. What exactly did you try that you didn't like?

I have been going to Reshmi's for ages now and never tried this smoked chicken. What exactly is this dish?

Also, hearing Langarwaali daal for first time. It was not there in Menu before. Is it a new inclusion?

Nice to know their quality remains. Which steak you had and pricing info too please

NOTE :
Name of dish and pricing of same helps other members too. It's requested to everyone to post this information wherever it's possible

-----------------------------

Sai Ram Mess, Begumpet ( Lane next to Intergraph Office and Blackberry Office)

Thali : Rs. 55
Mutton Fry : Rs. 80
Chicken Fry : Rs.70

Visited this place a couple of times in recent past and wifey likes it more than me. She prefers simple food most of times so that could be one of the reason.

Neat and clean place. Hot and tasty food including condiments like Karam Podi, Gongura Chutney and Ghee. Their daal and Rasam is excellent too

A lovely place for some VFM homely food.


After hearing a lot about 34 Chowringee Lane, visited them last evening and got a take-away of Double Mutton Roll priced at Rs.85

Firstly, the taste is no better than Tibbs Frankie and nowhere near Baba Chulha Rolls

Secondly, omlette is not part of the roll. 1 Egg (Rs.10) 2 Eggs ( Rs.20)

Finally, one BC roll is good enough for your dinner and for some folks its a bit too much. Whereas, 34CL roll is miniscule in size and you definetly would need two of them.

Final Verdict : I am not going back there again as taste is just ordinary and pricing is not VFM. I would rather buy 2 Tibbs frankies. We enjoyed their ice-golas more than the rolls. Ice-Golas are supposedly made out of RO ice

Thanks to yours and Imran's directions I found the place yesterday.

What time were you there?We must have missed each other by a few minutes I guess.I was there around 8-830 I guess.

You are bang on about the sizes,I felt it was just me-relieved now because I was almost feeling like a glutton for eating two of them there.I am relieved now.He is too stingy with the dressing-hardly any onions/sauces/mint chutney etc.His ice golas are pretty good as compared to his rolls.Even his mango lassis are nice priced at 30,but not vfm as quanity is less again.I think I will go back to Baba Chulha as long as his present roll maker is in action!They lost their way a bit in the recent past with cleanliness and taste being a major problem.I guess they are finding their way back now.

Chowringhee is definitely high on the hygiene factor and the seating is also pretty nice,but taste wise I guess Baba Chulha is better.

i went there after a really long time so I cannot say if they are new items on the menu. Since you havent spotted them before, maybe they are new.

The smoked chicken is a curry served in a kadai with a flame under it somewhat like kadai chicken (which is another item on the menu). The whole gravy n the chicken pieces had a lovely smokey flavour. You got to try it next time. Its the first chicken item listed in the menu. It costs 175/-.

Langarwaali daal (85/-) was a simple but lovely daal which reminded me of the daal i had at manikaran gurudwara in himachal. Largely yellow with some black daal mixed in it.

Breads. I picked up some burger rolls and a multigrain bread.
I am comparing them to Deli 9 and Ofen. Both of which have much better taste and texture.

btw, I had Dinner at Mak's Kitchen (Yusuf Tekri, Tolichowki) last night.
Ordered Hariyali Chicken Kabeb and Mutton Kandahari.

The kebabs were nice and spicy. In fact my daughter loved them despite the chilly. She kept asking, actually screaming for more.

The mutton gravy was everything a hotel gravy must be. Rich and Tasty with a lot of flavor. The quantity was also quite good.

The bill including a couple of rotis and water came to 620.
Includes the 4.5 % VAT.

It's been outlined many times on this thread in past. It's a few meters away from Golconda main entrance towards lakdi-ka-pul. You can park your car next to their restuarant. Not a problem

Firstly, their pricing has hit the roof. About a year ago, all gravy dishes were priced around Rs. 120. Now its Rs.175 and above. I guess they are recovering from us their renovation costs

I missed the langar food both at Manikaran in HP and also at Golden Temple despite wifey wanting to eat there badly

RESHMI's have been serving Smoked Chicken for atleast 5 yrs, I have been visiting that place for last 6+yrs and I think Smoked Chicken is one of the signature dishes they serve, the taste has been same all always but the quantity has reduced.

Avi,

Whats the parking scenario at BC? One of the reasons I avoid going there is the parking issue (I never personally checked - for some reason always assumed it is going to be an issue) and also I need to take go 2-3 kms to take a U turn to get back home.

Would not mind going there if I can park my car easily to get a take away.
