Around Rs 360 per head, inclusive of tips, mocktails and dessert!

BTW, is that 1+1 offer on sizzliers open even for weekend lunches?

Reagarding the 22nd meet, why not start from the ORR and go directly from there? Wider roads, Less traffic and ultimately flexibility to click picks on the go
Just a sugession.

Opp. S.D. Eye hospital would be one meeting point. A.P.P.A. circle would be the next (and last) meeting point. People who want to drive on the ORR are welcome to join in there. There might be other minor meeting points set up between people living in the vicinity eg. Begumpet, Basheerbagh etc.

Cheers,

Arre, Tum log bhi naa. You guys just kicked up my appetite a few notches. Now where do I get some steaks/sizzlers at a BOBBYing distance in Secunderabad. Yatri Nivas, I am not much of a fan of. Though their Indian fare is pretty good.

Kwalitys Grill & Curry are losing out on their flavor too in the recent times. The last time I asked for Fish and Chips their portions compared to Sazio, or nearly so.

Guys spell out a few names, you owe that to me.

I'd prefer the ORR anyday. I drove down to Chilkur last month and took the Langerhouz route while going and the ORR on the return. The ORR route was around 7 to 8 kms longer, but stress free, and the driving time remained the same.

The Langerhouz flyover was still under construction and it was a pain to drive in the narrow lane beside it---it is often a bottleneck. This apart, the number of inhabitants on the road from Golconda to APPA Jn via Shadan college has gone up quite a bit over the past few years, and it is no longer a breeze to drive on that route.

Actually, I had the following route in mind - Begumpet, Somajiguda, Rd. No.1 B. Hills, JNTU, Masab Tank, S.D. Eye hospital, Mandar etc. Tolichowki, Left onto O.R.R. @ Gachibowli, A.P.P.A. right onto Vikarabad Rd.

Langar Houz is not only avoidable, if possible I would bomb the bloody place out of existence.

Cheers,

Suren, Sec'bad is not known for sizzlers or good NV food. For that you need to dig out those small joints that you can only from visiting them with an experimental mind. I recommend the following in your vicinity :-

1. Reshmi ( top of the list)
2. 36 Barbeque near HDFC Bank in Paradise has a daily b'bque lunch for a fixed price

3. Garden at clock tower

4. Pickles

5. Did you try the cloud 9 Bar and Restuarant adjacent to ICICI Bank next to Begumpet Airport? Good Food. Their Kheema Biryani is awesome

6. Bar One,at Tadbund also serves awesome food. Try their Tandoori Chicken, i would say one of the best in city.

For sizzlers you need to head towards the posh areas like B.Hills and J.Hills

Spoke to a friend of mine whose college is on the vikarabad route (jbit). Got to know where exactly this APPA junction is. By what time do you guys want me to be there at APPA junction?

I would have said 9:00AM. But, going by past experience and also that day being a sunday, 9:30AM should be a good time for you to reach APPA Junction.
