The restaurant was far better than what i was expecting but extremely crowded. We had to wait awhile until we were seated since people were literally queuing up. The service wasn't exactly the best but the food totally made up for it. We only had mutton biryani and a couple of kebabs. The Kalmi Kebab and the mutton biryani was... More

Went for a family visit and ordered the mutton family pack. It's like a combo meal that has two biryanis, a veg dish, some curry, a couple more things along with desert. I was a little disappointed with the biryani as it was mostly rice with very little meat in it. The Kubani ka Meetha is definitely recommended. If you're... More

Fast service and good grub, though it gets extremely busy come lunchtime so you may have to queue a little. The restaurant itself is a little 70s and AC chilled / dark and dingy but hey, that's the Indian restaurant scene for you. This slight is overcome by good quality food and friendly staff. The restaurant area is upstairs, downstairs... More

Hyderabad is the food capital on India. The Biryani and Pakistani chicken at Shadab have no parallels even in this city. The challenge is to find a parking slot and if you manage that, now to get a seat in the restaurant. During Ramzan times, the restaurant transforms to represent the soul of the food capital, late in the night... More

we first visited shadab in 2010 on an off chance and were swept off our feet. Then again this time the experience was wow. The best biryani we have had anywhere in the world and believe us we have traveled a bit. The rush at 10 in night, the long wait before one could get a table. And finally when... More
