I remember Kabura used to serve good Afghan cuisine sometime ago. Kabura, Malgudi and Spark pub were located on the same floor and owned by the same group---Diana group of hotels, I think.

Malgudi shifted to other locations like Banjara Hills and Old Mumbai Road, and their quality seems to have taken a bit of a hit when I last visited their Lumbini Mall outlet.

These Kabab's sometimes turn out to be half-cooked. Better venture out to Barbecue Nation, which has a better spread as compared to Aura.

Oh So, Aura is erstwhile Kabura. I will stay away from them since i always had a bad experience at Kabura, below average food and dinghy environment. Thanks for the feedback

Inspired by Mobike008 and his quest for healthy food, I had Subway sandwiches last evening preceded by Tandoori Chicken and Masala Bangra Fry.

Ani, that's exactly what i do. Eat Subway and then get hungry and follow it up with some "real food" like what you had.

Last evening tried out Chicken Biryani at "Hotel Astoria", RTC crossroads. They opened a new family section and ambience wise is much better than Bawarchi ( comparison because both are right next to each other).

Pretty good taste of the biryani too and not sure but seemed better than Bawarchi.

Sigh, the weekday started and i am back to Subways until this weekend

Has anyones been to Hotel Sohail at Malakpet for Biryani? A true foodie should try it atleast once. Sohail's serves variety of Biryani's ranging from Veg Biryani to Non-Veg to Sea-Food Biryani. Tried Bonelss Mutton Biryani the last time and it was MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM WOW!!! Worth the try people.

Isn't that enroute to Saidabad below the flyover? I had their Haleem last year which was quite good but never tried the biryani. Will check it out soon.

Yes, This is enroute to Saidabad/Chanchalguda. Once you are off the flyover, this falls on the right side. Sohail does serve delicious Biryani & Haleem. Loved the Biryani there. Served as per your wish. Try out the Boneless Mutton Biryani with Double Masala. Thanks to these masala stuff that kind of adds up to the healthy belly that we are trying real hard to maintain.

Wish these Biryani joints, which serve awesome food should try to come up with a proper restaurant or a sitout for the families to come, ala the Bawarchi and Paradise kinds. Bawarchi and Paradise have neatly demarcated the sections in order to enable the family crowd to relish their food at a better place in a better ambience.

Love the variety of food served at the following hotels
1) Mundi Ka Ghost at Miskin Hotel near High Court
2) Biryani at Shah Ghouse Hotel at Shalibanda
3) Nihari-Zuban-Paayaa at Shaadaab, Madina

Wow, i am not into exotic stuff. However, the name of the Hotel rang a bell " Miskin" as some years ago, we had dinner at this very small joint which is opp to Shadab at unearthly hour ( 5:30 AM)....LOL

Recently we had a TBHP Haleem meet at Shah Ghouse and liked the Biryani but the meat was slightly big and tough which i dont like. It should be melt in the mouth types

Food at unearthly hour is served at many outlets around the city with Miskin being one of my favourite joints. Love the availability of Biryani at Prince Hotel, near Mehdipatnam. Prince Hotel serves biryani round the clock. However, these joints are for the bachelor types. Otherwise, Rumaan at Toli Chowki X Roads also serves good Biryani's

On the other hand, try out Sharma Betiya Kebabs or Kabab Platter at Mediterranean Cuisine, its really exotic and tastes like heaven.

I really doubt if Avi would ever say I haven't been to this place before. I would not be surprised if Avi remembers all the menu cards and the rates beside them. Avi can easily workout and let you know the average price at any of the restaurants. Lets keep his number handy

Well, that would have been true some years ago. but, at the rate which hotels are opening in hyderabad ( I assume 3-4 each week), it is difficult even for Sanjeev Kapoor to keep track of them

Sure thing Nikhil, feel free to call me for details. I already provide that service to quite a few hyderabadi folks ( free of cost).

Guys, need some suggestions for good sizzlers apart from the favorites like Palace Heights, Bombay Blues and Yoko's. Been there and done that.

Need to know new places to sizzle

Try out IndiJoe's at City Center Mall, they have a good range of Sizzlers. Loved the Sea Food Sizzler there the last time. Worth the try for foodies. Also try out the Texas Chicken Wings (hope I get the name right) with Tartar Sauce. It was great.
