Default re: A Guide: Eating out in Hyderabad/Secunderabad/Cyberabad

My mom is travelling out of town next week and as it's customary she wants a nice family dinner prior to her trip

Looking for recommendations for a decently priced restuarant ( North Indian, Chinese etc) in and around Himayathnagar, Begumpet, Banjara Hills and dont mind travelling a little further too but, not until Madhapur or Gachibowli. Preferably something that I never tried before

Any suggestions?

If none comes, then will end up going to our favorite "Sholay"

yes its a good place. It was formerly known as "Thai Express" and changed the name when they added Chinese, Malay, Iranian etc cuisines to the menu.
The Thai section has been shortened but the most of the good stuff is still there.

Maya Bazar or Reshmi.

Simple because I have not heard any reviews by you of these venues in quite some times now.

No, I did not. I over heard that original owner sold this outlet and since then quality started deteriorating. So I refrained from speaking with owner thinking it wouldn't be Sohail. Is that true? You probably can confirm this. I recollect you mentioning he is your friend. When it started 2-3 years ago, I did a fair bit of publicity for them in my office and now I am doing the opposite.

Most of the dishes that they serve are 3rd grade. These guys were chosen because they were amongst the best in this part of town. But alas, as you said, their standards are going down the drain.
The biryani we were served was just a level above what they serve in your cafeteria. Only difference was that chicken pieces were cooked well. Hell, it wasn't even hot! Perfect biryani is the benchmark for restaurants in Hyderabad, if they can't get it right, locals may not patronize them.

I avoid having biryani/non-veg dishes when I am eating from office cafeteria. I don't want to turn vegan.

Have you tried any of the below?
Via Milano - Jubilee Hills / Rd No .36
Barbeque Nation - Jubilee Hills / Hitech City Road after JH Police Stn
Salz - JH / Rd No. 92 near Puri Jagannath Temple opp to KBR Park
(I am yet to go to Salz, but heard its got a great view, something like Little Italy few mtrs away from here. But you might not like just veggie there)

You could try Siaa in Jubilee hills, opp. Chiranjeevi blood bank. It shares the floor with Spoil pub but do not worry about noise from the pub. They've got voice dampeners or whetever it is called. The seating layout is quite different and the city view is pretty good. After the dinner, you could head to Vacs for desserts.

Try Murgh badam shorba (soup) in case you plan to go.

*If you have a Citibank debit/credit card, they give you a 15% discount but you will need to inform this before the bill is printed. Not sure if they still offer the discount. I dined there in August.

The cost of everything around me is increasing. Bakers Inn has increased the price of bread straight from 42/- to 50/-.

Well inspite of all this a certain Mr.Ahluwalia still thinks there is no inflation in this country and food prices have been brought under control.He perhaps forgot that sugar was at INR 16 a year back for a kg and today hovering around 42.Perhaps he thinks that people have forgotten all the old prices!

Last night ordered take away from Prince, Mehdipatnam.

Half grilled chicken and chicken biryani - Rs.200.00 for 2 people. Awesome food. Chicken was grilled to perfection, biryani was fantastic - right amount of masala, juicy chicken leg piece, well cooked rice.

But Ranjit ji, unlike you, me and the billion other Indians, this Mr Ahluwalia doesnt have to pay for his daily, weekly, monthly or even yearly rations na ! They do not have any idea about the issues that the countrymen have to wrest with on a daily basis. That is why they say that a house can be run on Rs.26/- per day !!! I wish for just one day these plunderers run each of their houses in a budget of Rs.26/- !

I and a friend had lunch at Hyatt today. The captain told us there was a Mexican food festival going on and that the chef came from Mexico. We ordered Cheese quesadilla with chicken and shrimp fajitas.

The portion was so small, it would not have been enough for even a kid. Taste wise it was nothing great.

When we told the Mexican chef that the portion was too small and we were still hungry, he recommended mole chicken and some other chef special prawn dish. While prawns dish was ok mole chicken was pretty bad. All the items were priced Rs.700/- and above. The bill was Rs.2862.00 before taxes and with some 10 different taxes, it came to Rs.4600.00. Kyaa toh bhi kyaaki toh bhi.
