If you are going in the morning, then I'll give you directions from a breakfast joint, which serves tasty Makkhan Dosa & Makkhan Idli's
On a serious note, I urge you to be a bit carefull while buying it. They would show you a couple of rusted ones too, so be carefull what you buy. The most imporant thing is the grill, which has to be neatest of all. The outer body would not be much of an issue.

Road Number 1, Banjara Hills.
Veg Buffet, Rs 225 including taxes.
You get the soup and starters served at your table.
Choice of two soups. I liked the tomato. Did not like the other one.
The starters were very nice.
The ambiance is very nice. The water thing in the middle is very soothing and I liked it. The food is ok. Some dishes are good. The chat was excellent. The deserts were nice. A choice of three flavors for ice cream.
The feeling however is that its not worth 225.
But its a decent place to take someone who only eats veg.
Since I know very few such people. I would not be going back.
@bblost - Bikanerwala is quite bad - I am comparing to Haldiram outlets elsewhere.
Went to Mozzarella @rd 12 Banjara Hills two days back - very dimly lit given that majority of crowd were families with noisy and small kids. It is quite wierd - they have a few punjabi dishes along with predominatly Italian cuisine. It is all Veg.
Kids enjoyed Penne Pasta in white sauce - tasted OK, My made to order Pizza (which I wanted as close to Dominos Gourmet) was disaster, Wife was Ok with Canneloni F which was not as heavy on cheese as some of the others. Usual mocktails - high priced, icecreams to be avoided - baklava ok.
2 adults, 2 kids - 1300/- damages.
I think we will stick to Little Italy because of habit and ample light.
Well, this restaurant is not exactly in Hyderabad. It is actually near Suryapet (140 KM from Hyderabad on NH-9). I found this when I did a road trip last weekend to Dwaraka Tirumala (in West Godavari district of A.P.) via Suryapet & Khammam. The restaurant is named "7". It was built over 3 or 4 acres, has sparkling clean rest rooms, and a huge food court. Food court has options for "Soth Indian", North Indian", Chinese, "Chaat", "Thanda (drinks)" and "confectioneries". It was opened 4 months ago by M/s "People combine hospitality".
We had breakfast at this place during our onward journey, and liked the food - Plain Dosa (with 3 types of chutneys and Sambar) and Filter coffee. Hence, when we started our return journey we already made up our mind to stop for lunch at 7. We reached at around 2 PM and the place is bustling with peak hour crowd. yet, we found a table immediately, and ordered south Indian Thali. It was a very elaborate affair- sweet (Jalebi and Kheer) was followed by mini pooris and parathas to launch into a variety of veg curries. Piping hot rice was served to go with dal, pickles, podis (gun powder), pacchi pulusu, majjiga charu, sambar, rasam, curd, and "ulava charu with cream".
The food was outstanding (must be the best thali I had in years), but what took the cake was the service. Despite it being peak hour, the staff were very polite and prompt, and were constantly encouraging us to go for additional helpings of food. I am sure this place will soon be the most popular pit stop on NH-9.
