The hotel is near to shadab and I would rate it as very high. Excellent food. And not too expensive. I would rate it higher than Paradise Biriyani any Day. The food was great, and do try the biriyani. The restaurant is a bit cramped but nonetheless we were able to go with family and kids. They have a top... More

In name of hydrebadi biryani, all they offer is white rice cooked in insane amount of oil. The rice is bad, the veggies and chicken is bad. The pan shop they have is bad.

The food on offer is amazing. At reasonable rates you get to eat sumptuously. I was totally bowled over by the size of the 'tandoori roti' which was twice the size of the plate in which it was served. And to be honest they don't just serve biryani. They serve a 'heap' of biryani. So for the people going to... More

Been to Shadab a couple of times with my friends and i simply love the biryani. I do wish if it was more calmer of a place for family but nevertheless good enough to just crave on the taste of biryani. Definite go to place.

This place is close to Charminar and is good if you are a non vegetarian. Biryani is decent along with kebabs. Place is usually crowded and one has to wait for his turn. Not recommended if you are a large party pack. There is Pan stall just outside the restaurant, try it..

This could read like the old Smirnoff ads - I was a regular at Paradise Biryani till I discovered Shadab. This is is not a fancy restaurant, but the food is divine. We sat upstairs, the downstairs being more like a mess hall in the barracks or in a school cafeteria. The biryani and nihari were superb, the sheek kabab... More

Location is in crowded place. No parking. Pricing is reasonable and hence accessible to all. The upstairs seating is totally different from the normal simple bench seating available downstairs. Excellent service. We were catered to by Captain Azhar who knew the dishes and gave prompt suggestions. We had the veg dum biryani and the chicken biryani for my friend. Amazing... More

Probably the best biriyani..Their Biriryani is at least better than Hotel Paradise. This place is very popular and the pricing is such that it is accessible to all and hence it is very crowded. We had to wait for half an hour to get our seat. Ask for simple Dum biriyani, which is their specialty. Also do order Lassi and... More
