Thanks a bunch for the suggestion.
Shah Ghouse at Toli Chowki serves Paya only during the early hours of the day, generally between 6 to 10am. You could try at this place.

I believe their Khichdi Kheema, available in the early hours of the day is also excellent.

Brajesh Bhai, Shah Ghouse serves Paya during the evening too. Saturday's, they also serve Chicken Nihaari and etc.

For some brave souls, would also recommend Shadab for their Zubaan Nihaari, Jabda (Jaws) Nihaari.

Guys, came across Aslam Bhai biryani when they have setup their stalls at my office. But the reviews from my colleagues are not that good.
Couple of days back, enroute to my office saw their outlet in S R Nagar. How are they? Any reviews? The price mentioned is Rs.99

Thanks @Vedder.
I have been to Indijoe twice.

By the way, can you guys tell me what to try at Shah Ghouse?
After reading a lot about it in this thread, I have decided to give it a shot.

Both Shah Ghouse and Shadaab serve chicken shorba on Saturday nights and the same is served on Sunday mornings as well.

Shadaab was my pit stop for b'fast during my numerous trips to the airport and oh boy, i dearly miss those days.

Waseem.


Waseem.

What's a good place (first preference Sec'bad, second Hyd'bad) for a quiet evening out for a new couple. No food/cuisine preferences, except that we're vegetarian. Please pour in your suggestions. Price - moderate to slightly expensive.

The place should be quiet - would love to hear each other speak.

Thank you very much in advance!

You can check out the coffee cup behind the Canara Bank,Near BP COCO pump at Sainikpuri.

Or else theres this coffee shop bang on the gate of Alankrita which is also nice.but would involve a fair bit of riding/driving

Else the all day dining at Courtyard Marriott,foods nothing to rave about but since food is not the agenda and spending time is-this place also would work for you.

The CCD at Karkhana is also a very quiet place but the seating is very weird where the counter guys have complete view of all the sofas.so privacy maybe a problem

Overall I would say Coffee Cup is your best bet.Check for The Coffee Cup on facebook

i just noticed the coffee cup is closed on saturdays and the plan to go was for today.

I'll look at the alternatives you mentioned, but do you have anything else to recommend in Secunderabad?

Thank you very much!!

Edit: It's Google Maps that's reporting the place as closed today. I've just posted on their FB page and will also call them up to see if it really is the case.

OK, The Coffee Cup was open today and we liked the place quite a bit. It was slightly crowded due to today being the weekend, but we had some privacy. The food and drink were also well made, and wasn't thoroughly expensive, quite unlike CCD.

@ranjitp1, thanks for the suggestion

Ggoodest Food ... Love Free ... only at ... 13 Dhaba ... Gachibowli ...

I finally managed to drive over across town to eat at the newest and most authentic Punju eatery in the twin cities.

I have no excuse to offer why it took me 60 days after they opened for business to make my first visit.

Found the place easily based on landmarks and directions given in posts and threads on a certain FaceBook group. There is no parking available at all (be careful) so drove down a little more and parked safe and secure in a lane nearby making sure my car would not obstruct any one else.

The rush at 8:00pm was massive. No place to sit, no space to reach the counter (it is a self service eatery). Anyways, sitting is a few cane moodas scattered around. Managed to reach the order/delivery counter after having banged my head with another customer and taking 5 minutes in the queue.

Realised that there is a huge backlog for Chole Bhature due to high demand so ordered one Kadhi Chawal and one Rajma Chawal and also got my name put in queue for one Chole Bhature. Also came to know that there is no lassi available by then.

Paid 100/- for the Kadhi Chawal and Rajma Chawal (50/- each) and came near the road and sat on the parapet wall on the boundary of the outlet

... and then I took the first spoonful from each of the dishes ...

and was blown away with the simplistic homely taste of the food. It is truly 100% authentic Punjabi taste. No chillies and perfectly spiced lightly to enhance the taste and not kill the taste of the dish and food. Superior quality rice. Touch the rajma and it gets squashed but till then it retains its shape signifying perfection in cooking and also overnight soaking time. Same was the story with chole which I ate later.

Have been brought up and having lived on Punjabi food, I can straightaway state that this is how food is made in my house and most Punjab families.

Later on, we had one plate of chole bhature and even that was very good. No defects, no deficiencies. Worth much more than the 50/- charged for 2 bhature and some chole.

People who do not like the strong taste of asafoetida may find it to be a bit overpowering in the meal ... but it is this hing which will save you from belching, bloating, flatulence and farting, symptoms of eating rajma and chole.

Caution : 3 plates of food (kadhi chawal, rajma chawal and chole with 2 bhature) between the 2 of us was far in excess what we could eat but then we are small eaters. Hearty eaters also can maximum eat only 2 dishes so that means you will eat to your heart's content in 100/-. Can food be cheaper than this? No way.

Thanks is due to the 2 Mathuru brothers for their ever smiling super polite efficient service. Hats off to all their staff and family members who participate there in giving Hyderabad a true authentic homely Punjabi food at most affordable prices.

13 Dhaba also serves paronthas which did look very nice so I am now looking forward to try them out soon. They also had moong dal halwa but since both of us do not eat sweets, we skipped it.

Best to be there for lunch between 12:30 and 1:00.
Between 7:30 and 8:00 for dinner.
Mondays they are closed.
Kadhi Chawal, Rajma Chawal, Chole Chawal can be packed and taken home but not bhature, nor pooris nor paronthe.

13-Dhaba: + 1 to hyd_traveller

Based on his report here a few bunch of tbhpians with their spouses/friends went there for dinner yesterday and enjoyed everything (simple ghar ka khaana )

We reached there around 8.15pm to see all the make shift tables occupied and in a matter of 30 mins the whole place was a riot(so many people)

This re-affirms that you dont need fancy set up to sell good food

For me personally kadi chawal and gobi paratha were the favourites

The owner told us he will start serving dal makhani and paneer items soon

On a side note saw a couple of harley iron 883 pass by ,that exhaust note is pure music
