Anyways, one more restuarant struck off my list
I have been to this restaurant earlier, and reviewed it on this thread. I am quite surprised by your feedback as my bill was more like Rs 350 per head. The only difference is that I had only ordered veg food. Not sure if veg food is cheaper or if they have jacked up the rates now.

Well, it was my first time and I have listed the items that were ordered. Imagine paying 650 bucks for 1 piece Tandoori and Mutton, little bit of veg snack, 2 rotis and two gravies ( only one was meant for the NV's and tasted the other one)

Also, taste was good nothing to rave about.

Not worth the price at all !!!

I am not sure if this restaurant has already been visited/ a favorite spot for foodies of T-bhp ,but I believe the Moti Mahal in Gachibowli is a place that needs a special mention again.
Moti Mahal, as they say, is a famous eatery joint in North especially around Delhi famous for its Tandoori Cuisine.
Last night, while looking out for some simple eating spots. we spotted this on the right side of the Gachibowli-Mehdipatnam road and we decided to give it a try. Including myself, we were 5 and we were expecting some simple and plain items since we assumed we had a heavy lunch in 4 seasons [ though it was not satisfactory for me since I am a vegan] . No one, per se, was really hungry but just wanted to eat for the sake of it. Since we were not able to find any plain items, we ordered a Chicken Biryani [ for NV members] , veg fried rice, Chilli paratha and Dal Makhni . and after 10 min or so, food was served .The parathas, Biryani and fried rice were really good but it was the Dal Makhni that just shadowed every other item [ even the Chicken]. It was exquisitely Exotic and simply cooked to perfection and all of us craved for its helping again and again till we ordered one more. And this all happened while no one was really hungry.
The bill was around 1200 [ for 5], the rates are not very high [but neither low] . The ambience, hospitality and serving are all upto the mark, but the food, quite amazing. And we, with our fingers being licked made a unanimous decision that we would be back again with empty stomachs.

I think Moti Mahal can stand out as one of the best restaurants in Hyderabad for the typical Punjabi/tandoori cuisine and it is a must visit place for foodies of Hyd.

Nice review. I visited this restuarant with a few BHPians for lunch some weeks back

I thought the food was good (liked the dal a lot) without being spectacular and for just a few starters and couple of curries and one rice and no drinks amongst the 5 of us, we paid Rs.600 per head which I thought was ridiculous paying for lunch with minimilistic dishes ordered.

You try Aao Khao, it has similar ( if not better) taste for much lesser prices.

Honestly, I thought Moti Mahal is overrated

Thanks . 'Aao and Khao' will be my next destination.

My judgement might have been influenced by that wretched curry that tasted sweet horrendously I had in the afternoon but I did not find the items to be overly priced [ like that of Ulavacharu or Nalabheemas , though they are off different cuisine]. Yet, 600 per head is way too much. I will watch out for the prices and report it here the next time

You should try that. But, mind you its standing and eating in a neat environment. Its owned by erstwhile Hadippa owner Krishna

But, the food is quite nice and almost equal to Moti Mahal ( barring that MM is little richer in taste--thick gravies etc)

You can read my review a few posts below on this page only. Click this :-

Just realized, we paid Rs.650 per head

For that price, I would prefer to enjoy a sizzler meal, buffet at BBQ Nation or AB's with much better options and perhaps taste as well

A very tasty, mess type fresh vegetarian fare is found at Raghavendra restaurant. It is further ahead on the left side in the same lane as that of Harsha Mess. You might be aware of Harsha mess- it is in the lane diagonally opposite to Maitrivanam Ameerpet.
Tough competition for Harsha Mess :-)

Last weekend, we headed to our favorite "Ruci & Adoni" for lunch after a movie

We ordered the following :-

1. Chicken Wings
2. Cheese Garlic Bread
3. Spinach Ravioli
4. Veg Pizza
5. Raw Mango Lemonade (3 No's)
6. Minstrone Soup

Each and every dish was mindblowingly awesome. Perfect on taste and servings and their style of serving is excellent as well

Raw Mango lemonade is a must drink to have here

Ravioli was delicious and flavoured mildly with red pesto sauce

R&I are known for their super thin pizzas so it was no surprise that it was marvellous

2K well spent

---------

I had 4 seasons chicken biryani at Inorbit Mall sometime in September and quite liked it

As I was passing by their restuarant in Tolichowki, decided to get it as take-away

Mutton biryani was stylishly packed and given in a big paper bag (charged 5 bucks for it)

Biryani was excellent to say the lease. Rice was bit dry but, really flavourful and meat pieces were succulent (I think they use goat and not sheep)

Their mirchi ka saalan is to die for but, they give that in small bowl not even two large tablespoons worth (totally unfair)

Price is not VFM though : Rs.280

Dear All,

Many times I have been to Syala Drive In in Jubilee hills, opposite to Bombay Duck. I can vouch that 100% of us would have gone there by now. I would like to take this opportunity to review the place.

Been here many times and my favourite is Sambar Chicken Rice and Double Choclate thick shake. I always have this whenever I go to this place. Approx it would cost 300 per head and a very happening place post 12 in the night

It is now high time to revive this thread. Let us start with what we do best, a Haleem Crawl. Who all are in and what are the most suitable dates ?
