Some of us tbhp hyd folks had Tandoori Chicken and Chicken Biryani from Y2K, Panjagutta last night.

I liked the Tandoori, it was nice. But, the biryani was way spiced up and i didnt quite like it.

I have seen it, and seeing the name 'Chocolate', I just ran away from there as I am on a diet!

Happened to go over yesterday - was pretty full for a Monday evening. Sometimes I think there's the most money in the food business especially in Hyderabad!

They didn't have plenty of the items on the menu - like panino's & wraps - so settled for a latte, waffles (honey dew) with ice cream & a vanilla pancake with icecream - no I didn't have all this by myself - lol! Total damage about Rs 250.

Was ok - not crazy about the ambience..

Ami, you seem to frequent the ice-cream joints more than regular food serving places

Btw, you folks have disappeared? Looks like we put a scare in you at Fortune Katriya

Yeah - i know - what can say - its a persistant sweet tooth. Don't know bout Amit - but I've been really busy at work these last couple of months - have been partying a wee bit too much as well! Was also travelling around the time you guys went for the drive meet. Only able to log in maybe once a week or so.

We'll certainly catch up one of these days!

Been to 36 Jubilee Hills last night.
Total No.: 9

Ambiance is not great. But the place did have a decent crowd.

Food:

Starters & Beverages:
Chicken Pakodas
Apollo Fish
Pepper Chicken
Crispy Corn (for the Veggies)
Chicken 65
Chilli Chicken

Main Course:
Chicken Biryani
Mutton Biryani
Naan & Panner Butter Masala
Curd Rice!

Dessert:
Khubani Ka meetha with icecream
Fruit Salads!

Total Damage - INR 3600/- after corporate discount! (Best part was, it was a treat! So, no damage to my wallet!)

The starters were good. Chicken biryani was not up to the mark but mutton biryani was ok compared to chicken!

@Pulsar, omigosh, you took my advice seriously and blew 3.6K ( i know, know, someone else blew it).

@Amip, look forward to having you on next drive meet, whenever it happens

Tried Y2K last night!
Was getting bored due to the holiday and thought of eating some good food!

Made a quick search on this thread, and after reading Rajes's post, ordered for a Chicken Korma Curry, Tandoori Parathas and some Tangdi Kababs!

Chicken Korma Curry was good. (It's minced chicken curry and boneless!) and the paratha's went very well along with it!

Total cost - 125/- (ONLY)

OT: Had a funny moment there when a person turned up and was insisting for a grilled chicken which was not yet cooked!

Good one there Pulsar. I had Y2K a few weeks ago at MC's place but didnt find the food that great. I mean the tandoori chicken that i had was not really well made and the crispiness that you find in the outler layer was just not there.

Btw, last night Rajesh was at GN and you at Y2K? Lot of dhaba food doing the rounds..huh?
