Ordered special chicken biryani and to my surprise it was different than the one I am used to eat at Paradise or Bawarchi. For one, they put 8-9 small pieces of chicken makhani pieces in spice adorned basmati rice. I always thought that biryani was meant to be tender chicken and large size pieces unlike what I found at Shadab.... More

Shadab is located close to Charminar and serves Indian/Mughlai food. The biryani (veg or non veg) is the best of the city. Portion size is more than sufficient and service is quick.

The malai kababs with malai chutney is mind blowing. Simply loved it. Also the Biryani was good. But the quantity is too much for a single person to finish off. Very nice service and good ambiance. The cost is quite reasonable. This place is quite famous and near to chaarminar. Definitely worth trying

It is located in crowed location. The ambiance is avg. Also, food was not so good. I wonder how people have given such high rating. But, I found quite avg. There are many good places in Hyderabad like Paradise, Bawarchi, Chutney's etc (try that first).

one of the best biryani that i have had is at this place....the spices were subtle and complex in the chicken biryani and were not loaded with masalas as in many other places ...it is located in a busy market near the charminar...you can ignore the ambiance here as the food is the hero...i think i like the biryani here...

Every time you visit Charminar, it would be worthwhile to visit Shadab hotel. I tried the shorba here, was really rich and heavy. The biryani again is an authentic Hyderabadi one. The raita served with the biryani is often neglected by many restaurants, but not here. The ambiance however is not the best here.

If you ignore the general seating area and head up to AC section Shadab will provide you with a unforgettable meal that will make it to your bucket list! The Pakistani chicken was one of the best gravy dishes I have eaten in my life. The Mutton seekh was also amongst the best. Biryani was ofcourse very good. This is... More

Contrary to the popular opinion, I found the biryani at Shadab to be better than the one at Paradise. Located at a walking distance from the Charminar, this place retains the old world charm. The Irani chai (tea) is worth a try as well!
