Heard that this is the best place for biryani and went there with family for lunch. It was already late afternoon around 2:30pm and still there was a huge crowd waiting desperately behind every chair for the person in the chair to finish their food. It looked like vultures waiting for flesh. not a site that I would be expecting.... More

Excellent place to try a Biryani other than Paradise .. and their kebabs really good. A must try if you love Biryani! Note : Parking is bit difficult. Better to get dropped here rather than you driving down.

Having spent a good 3 and a half months in India, we sampled our fair share of amazing food, but this meal still stands out for the both of us. The service was great, informative and friendly, but the true highlight is the food. Probably one of the best meals ive ever had. Knowing that hyderabad is the home of... More

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.
