To begin with the parking slots were very narrow(not a trivial matter for automobile lovers), rooms were poorly finished food was surprisingly ordinary. only good thing about the place according to me is its location(and the cute hostess ). Those working in Hitec city will find it closer.
Thanks for the review in a nutshell.

Rest assured that when Mobike008 is negotiating with them, all of us will magically be from Himayat Nagar, Begumpet, Secunderabad, Tarnaka & Lakdi-ka-pul areas and Ella will be too far!

Narrow parking slots do not bother me as I bung my cars wherever I can and leave neighouring cars to fend for themself.

Ordinary/bad food is a matter of serious concern. We are as particular about our fuel as we are about the fuel for our cars.

Second Ravvs on this one. If the food is ordinary, cute hostess notwithstanding, it is a matter for concern. We hydeez are quite sensitive to the needs of our palates. Avinash, you sure it is not her prior experience with your negotiating skills which has prompted a higher start?

Once Avi has used his charm on them and got them to agree to having us there for a reasonable price.

Default Quiz @ 10 D!

I completely forgot to write about the great time Ram & I had at 10 Downing last week!
Ram was answering and suggesting answers to the team while I was busy doing something else! (Shhhh...)

The Egg Roll from Roll Call were amazing!

P.S: Most of the chicken's offspring were seen heading out towards Roll Call to pack up food as 10 D is very expensive! LOL and I commented about it so that they could hear me loud & clear! he he!

Thanks Ram..for the passes to the Auto show!
I am ready to take 1/2 day sick leave on Friday!
