Located this place quiet some time ago, asking locals around Charminar and I have not been disappointed every time I have been here. You do get Biryanis all over Hyderabad hotels but this place undoubtedly has the best. The atmosphere is not the best Fine dining experience one, if you are looking for that, please stay away. The food, which... More

If you like authentic biryani its the place with roti and Pakistani chicken curry don't forget mutton bur bura. Lassi is the best in there.

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

we`ve tried the all and by far Hotel Shedab was our favority pick. not too clovy biryani, just the right spice level. Try to go a bit before rush hours as you may wait long as it is a very popular place. we usually went around 1-1h30Pm before the 2PM rush hour and could take our timeeating slowly. 200Rupees for...

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
