I asked Avi aka "the bible of eating out in Hyd" suggestions for a good restaurant that allows smoking too, but lets see if T-bhp Hyderabadi's give out more options

got a few people coming in from UK and they all from BAT(British American Tobacco) , hence cannot risk a non smoking place, lol.Even an open area seating within the Restaurant premises is fine .Continental, Chinese , who cares .....

cheers in advance foodies.

Seventh Heaven is not a fit place for foreign delegates. Terrace Bay does not allow smoking. Please list out more names so i can strike them off the contention list

Btw, the Pepper Chicken and Special Chicken curry last night was awesome. It was from a place called "Rasoi" near my home.

Try Aroma over kalaniketan in Somajoguda.

If you are very particular about smoking then you should definitely go to Blue Waters Bar in Park Lane. They have a permanent 1+1 offer. ( This will definitely give them an idea of their typical customer segment and will help them to make an appropriate product in the future.)

How about Paigah or Chiraan Fort or something in those lines? The ambiance could seem nostalgic for these guys.bugger the food coz they'll probably have their lunch time thirst quenchers along with the nicotine top ups. The food is just to fill gaps in between.

So any nostalgic/historic place would also work out well for me.

Cheers

Edit : What about Marriott on Tank Bund ? anyone been there?

i think all the upmarket indoor restaurants have restrictions on smoking.

arre yaar...they must be used to it. UK is stricter than india about their no-smoking policy. let them smoke outside before and after the meals.

alternatively u can take to any of the "Bar & Restaurants" dotting the city - let them enjoy tasty food, booze, ciggies all at a lower price!

I agree

Arun, let them know upfront about the no-smoking policy, i doubt if you need to take so much trouble just that they can enjoy their smokes.

As suggested, i still feel Fusion 9 is the place to take firaangs. They love that food. Unless, these folks are particular to try indian stuff in an indian environment. In that case, i suggest Dum Phukt in GK

Good choice. Both are known for their continental food. Btw, your earlier short-list of Chiran Fort was yucks as their food is terrible. And, they have a huge lawn with tables spread across making you feel as if you have gone to a wedding
