Guys---my batchmate from Vizag Steel is dropping in tomorrow, so I am tied down for a couple of days, though I am working from home and Jal Vihar is hardly any distance.
Therefore I regret that I have to drop out.

Guys..Avi is chipping most of the responsibility for the meets,T-shirts etc.
Least that can be done is to ensure that the dough reaches him on time from everyone so that the order for the T-Shirts can be placed and procured.
Best opportunity would have been the lunch meet tomorrow,but we do understand the situation.Hence please tie up with Nazim to handover the money those who have confirmed for the T-Shirt and who cant make it to the Lunch meet tomorrow.A sincere request to you all.....

Folks around Hi-Tec City or Banjara Hills, please PM me and hand over the T-shirt amount to me at my work place or at my home! (Will let you know the exact locations via PM!)

I am available at work from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM and rest of the time (apart from travel time) at my home!

NOTE: Orders will be placed only for the ones who have paid.

Manish, i read the reviews of 70mm and most of them seem to be upset with the food and someone even commented its a "paid torture"

Also, i note from your post that this offer is only from Mon-Thur? Do they have it tomorrow as well for same price? If no, we need to have a back-up plan in Moksh at Necklace Road or Zafraan at Somajiguda.

Ani, what's the price you said about Zafraan? Been there a few times in the past and good food ( though not as good as Zafraan Exotica)

His house is easy - just go to Nazim Circle and yell for him!

If any spare T-Shirts are available then they will be scalped to ones who have not ordered and paid up in advance.

Unless the food is real bad, let us stick with it. IMHO Ohri's never served up great food, just passable stuff at decent prices. This venue has parking, is centrally located etc. If we were to go by junta's reviews we would be lost.

Cheers,

Zafran has upped their rates recently and the non-veg buffet is 230+ tax. Food is decent but nothing to write home about. The best offer is at 45 on Road no. 45 Jubilee Hills where in you get a non-veg along with a pint for 199 +tax.

The Uno is back and the M800 is also there but why drive 2 kms when you can reach the destination by walking may be 200metres and crossing the bridge.

@Ravvs, i beg to disagree, Ohri's is the only group with an extensive list of fine dining joints in Hyderabad right from their Basera days and i do agree that NOW not all their restuarants are living up to the name like BJ's group ( Angeethi, SSS Indijoe's etc)

Basera : Still damn good food and awesome ambience
Pickles: Used to be one of the best buffets in city. Not sure now since its a year i visited them
Ming Court, Basheerbagh: I rate this as best chinese hotel in hyderabad
Havemore: Best Chole Bhature and ice-creams in town
Ohri's Rd.12 midnight buffet is still one of the best
Tadka, quite good food and best raan in town

I can go on and on.....

As usual, looks like its going to be same small band of thieves ganging up.

Imagine my dedication, i decided to work from home just to be close to lunch meet venue and now Ani proposes a location close to my office...Grrrrrr

How about Moksh, their is Kebab and Biryani offer there and is on Necklace road? Ohh, i forgot we can also visit Amurtha Castle, they have some sizzler offer going on.

No dearth of options...huh?......LOL

I suggest firming up the venue by 11 so that I can day dream about the spread and increase the appetite.

BTW I haven't had breakfast in anticipation of the buffett lunch

Then its definetly out since it will work up to close to 300 bucks, plus its paid torture at 199 so it be much more at 250++.

Lets call Moksh around 11 to see what they have to offer.
