All the road side eateries are closed even during day times, so getting one around the hitec city and gachibowli at nights is even more not possible due to the bomb threats etc.

Wait for another fortnight for things to cool down and things will be back to normal

What a nice suggestion. Eat a 100 bucks biryani and spent 500 bucks on petrol and toll

Wow, Is WoW still open?

I havent been there in last 5 years or more. It was good only for the view and never liked the food there.

Just 50 bucks extra for dinner? I dont think so? Dinner pricing will be atleast Rs.150 more considering the additional seafood starters and more items in buffet

Can anyone confirm dinner buffet pricing?

Yeah!!! Just Googled it only to find that it's been renamed to "Khao Galli Restaurant".

From the ratings in JustDial food looks to be Good/Very Good. May be BHPians can give a confirmation on that.

I HATE their buffet. The useless fellows havent changed the menu since it opened in Banjara Hills years ago. If I go there I just fill myself with the kababs, have some dessert and thats it.

They keep rotating their kebabs menu often. 2 Chicken, 2 Meat, 1 Prawn/Fish, Crab. What else do you want? They covered the NV range

Have to give it to them, their kebabs are indeed way better than the other copy cats like 36 BBQ and a few others.

And, anyone going their to eat their buffet is making a mistake.

Dig into the kebabs along with their mint flavoured mocktail and wrap it up with desserts is the best way to enjoy a meal there. If you have a large appetite, maybe their Mutton Gravies which are usually very good along with a roti or two.

900 bucks for dinner buffet is ridiculously high, based on info from Rajesh Rawal, I would rather enjoy a brunch at Avasa for Rs.1275 A.I while swimming in the pool

Went to Palamuru Grill for lunch today with 2 of my friends. It is a new place opened on the Ayyappa Society road, next to Carz. They tried to get the rustic ambience and the structure is temporary kinds, no AC. Would have been great during winter but in summer it will be pretty hot. Lot of parking space.

Coming to food, Palamuru is another name for Mahabubnagar and they tried to create a village kind of atmosphere. The menu is just a single sheet. Pics posted below.

They do not have much variety in grill and it is done on a open fire grill instead of tandoor.

We ordered:

Mutton Seekh Kebab @ Rs.159.00 - Decent. 8 pieces of minced meet, could have been a bit more moist.

Boti Fry @ Rs.139.00 - Pretty good if you like boti. Reasonably spicy.

Palamuru Pottelu koora (Palamuru Potla - mutton curry) @ Rs.199.00 - Was a disappointment. Meat was too soft, gravy was thin and too many tomatoes. Unlike any mutton I ate in Telangana. Not very spicy. But then some other friends of mine who ate there last week had a better experience with pottelu curry.

Nallamala Natukodi koora @ 199.00 - Much better taste, well cooked, could have been little more spicy.

Bagara rice @ 79.00 - This was good. With the curries and even without the curries, there was the flavor of spices in the rice.

Phulkas @ 19.00 for 2 and Kinley bottle @ 21.00. Total bill came to Rs.910.00. No taxes / charges. However, the portion sizes can be a bit bigger.

Will definitely go back to try few other dishes.

Menu (Do check out their motto on the second page )

Barbeque Nation is best visited during some of their food festivals. I had been to their Chennai outlet a couple of months ago when there was a 'Deep Sea' festival. The tagline read something like ' Tastes from 1000 feet below the ocean'. They included possibly every kind of marine creature, from weird looking fish to lobsters to crabs to oysters to even octopus and squid. Some of the food looked yuck, But ofcourse, whatever they cook they do a good job of it. I am not sure if the Hyd outlet conducts such fests. But if they do, I am ready to knock on their doors.

Oh yes ,good you reminded me. Lets do the avasa sunday brunch soon with +1 .I find it a killer of a deal.

If you still have room for food then you can head to their buffet place for a proper meal(trust me you will not reach that stage as they are generous with the starters)

Hi guys,

Try out CREAM CENTER @ Rd.36, Jubilee Hills (its the same building as Barbecue Nation)

Very famous veg food chain from Mumbai! excellent food, and best is the variety you get there!
The paneer dishes, sizzlers and pizza are my favs! Their paneer is the softest you will get. And the mocktails are excellent too, along with their signature Sizzling Brownie Sundae.


Also, for people looking for delicious 'bandi chinese', there is a good one at Rd.12, Banjara Hills, its near Good Earth store.
I had the veg food, and it was nice, heard the non-veg is even better.


And just 2 days back, FLURY's of Calcutta has opened up their first store in GVK One mall food court. the pastries and cookies are super yum! (and also super fattening )

Lunched at Kailash Parbat last saturday.

Soup- Coconut Ginger Soup (chef spl): Was like sweet corn soup with some grated coconut. No taste of ginger. Disappointing.

Starters- Kabab platter with 5 types of kababs/grills. Good!

Main course-

Hyderabadi Veg Dum Biryani: Quite tasty but definitely not hyderabadi. Green colored due to pudina.

Lasgna: not bad but tasted too desi with paneer etc.

Koki (Sindhi dish)- stuffed spicy parathas with curd n pickles. Lovely!

Sai Baji (Sindhi) - A semi dry spinach item. Very unique flavour. Liked it a lot!

Seyal Chawar (Sindhi) - A biryani like beautifully flavoured rice dish. Loved it!

Over all great food. Ordered lots of Sindhi items coz I had never tasted those before. Enjoyed eating them. However only a Sindhi can comment on how authentic they are.

Bill came up to 2500 for 6 people.

I'm very eager to know which pork dishes you'd recommend, sir. Last time I had chilly fried pork from Nanking, it was hard and gamey and dry, not enjoyable at all. I'd love to try out your suggestion.

I_D, Long time no see. Good to see you active here and thanks for the Bandi Chinese tip.

Cream Center is known for their Chole Bhature which is almost equal to Havemore which I still rate as #1 for CB

Will check out the mocktails you mentioned next time iam there.

That's really earthy pricing probably to go with their ambience

Where exactly is this location? Landmarks?

Will check them out soon.

Hope they live up to their motto when i am there...LOL
