I thought the meet would start from 12:30 PM. Looks like people are strictly following the HST

I am planning to be there by 12:30 PM (sharp) as I will be leaving early. Anybody else joining in by then?

Pre-ordered 4 Hadippa Special Tandoori Chicken, that should make it 32 pieces on the whole. As per the final confirmed list, I see we are 15 Non-Veggies, which I guess should be sufficient.

Where is the final confirmation from Alok Bhatt, Sparsh and Shammi? Hope they are joining us for sure. In case the last 3, who have not given their final confirmation also join in, then we might have to add up another Half Hadippa Special Tandoori Chicken.

At the max, it would be 4.5 plates Hadippa Special Tandoori Chicken

By the time most of us reach there, it would be 12.45 - 1.00. I shall be there by 12.45. This time, shall try not to follow HST for sure, else I would be the last one to walk after you guys have enjoyed the food, cleared the bill and are about to walk out.

It's not HST. It's my IST, as this the time I committed from the start.
Though I have taken permission to stay till 3p.m , so I think 1 to 3 would be a good time.

Yes, it was an awesome meet. The food and ambience were great, and the tables were not that low as I'd expected after reading someone's post.

Thoroughly enjoyed my first T-BHP meet. It was nice to put a face to the handles, though meeting so many new people in such short span of time - most of which was spent relishing the food - makes it difficult for new comers to remember every person / name. Look forward to the next meet.

Request: Whoever posts the pics, please identify the members with their handle / real name.

To summarize the meet in one statement, it was PHENOMENAL. Good to see all the confirmed in attendance. I guess, this is for the first time that all those who confirmed were there. The long overdue Lunch Meet finally happened due to Hadippa.

Hadippa was a reason to plan for a lunch meet. An innocent question I guess, we should have a Hadippa Lunch Meet turned into a Team-BHP Mega Lunch Meet at Hadippa. Even though most of the regulars were there, a few others were surely missed. Ravs, RR, Waseem, Suren and etc.

The crowd slowly started trickling in around I-Have-No-Idea as I myself was following HST and reached at the venue by 1:00. I had a intuition that I would be the last of all to walk in, alas I was among the first comers there. Next time, shall follow NST (Nikhil Standard Time).

Good to see some new faces, good to see old ones join us and good to see the regulars too. Missed all others who could not join. Waseem did join us virtually over the phone and it was great speaking to Waseem Bhai after a long time. Waseem Bhai, you are very much needed in Hyderabad.

Overall, it was 100% Attendance. A good sign that we are moving towards CONFIRMED CONFIRMATIONS if it is related to food.

Would love others to put in their thought as I am going on a sojourn called as SLEEP now. Shall wake up later and post some more from my side. Till the meantime, I pass on the mantle to all others.

Next Mega Lunch Meet at OTF. Was speaking to Paresh a couple of days back about the same thing, when I was there for lunch. He would not have much issue arranging a place for us to sit. If the meet kind of happens in the second or third week of January, then I guess OTF would also be extended. So, for next time OTF it is. Even if it is not extended, we can always have good food in the limited place there. Golden Fried Mushrooms, Chicken Cheese Macaroni and Blueberry Cheese Cake, here I come.

Just arrived back at office. Actually, first went home and decided to sleep off the meal but had a change of mind in the parking lot of my apartment and came to office.

Thanks a lot to Nikhil for organising and coordinating the meet.

It was great to meet so many of you including many new ones.

Good food added to the fun.

Thanks to all those who made it.

Looking forward to seeing the photos.

OT : Thanks for the sticker, Avinash. I can now affix it to the left rear door of my car from where the earlier one had to be removed during the denting/painting last week.

What a fantastic meet. It was great to catch up with all oldies and newbies together

As rightly praised, the food at Hadippa is simply outstanding and gorged on that awesome food so much that iam still comatose. Iam going back there a few times in quick successions before their quality falls (hoping it doesnt) which is usually the case with most new restuarants.

Great job Nikhil in getting the food lovers together. I must confess you should take over the meet organizing mantle hereon

@Sparsh, let the pictures do some talking. If i recall correctly, you havent taken any pictures of the delicious food which will be a major dissappointment for Silverwood. I was busy talking to folks else, I would have taken pictures of food and not people...lol!

It was a meet for me after a Long Time! The food was good and the company amazing. Enjoyed it absolutely.

BTW it doesn't seem to be my day. I got hit on the rear by a Swift which was too close behind me and when thesignal turned red, he couldn't control and rammed. I saw his headlamp had gone while there is no scratch on the Getaway.
