A quintessential biryani joint next to the Charminar which was introduced to me a decade ago. Since I was at the site, went back to revive some memories. This is a hands on eatery where you might have to share a table with a complete stranger. Order the Special Biryani ( mutton or chicken ) as its much tastier and... More

The place is right in the heart of Old city and serves lip smacking Hyderabadi food. Biryani, tikkas, kheema, curries all are mind boggling tasty. Am a big fan of this restaurant. The place is under renovation but still the place is not for the ones who are expecting top notch ambiance or services. But what they do is serve... More

If you want ambiance or a romantic fine dining experience, this is not for you. This place is for people for whom only one thing matters - taste. This is a great place for great Hyderabadi biriyanis and kebabs. The service is not top notch but the food makes up for it.

The hotel is near to Charminar. I went along with my family and my cab driver took me to this hotel. At first look it seemed to me a mediocre hotel. A few people having their lunch and was not looking that clean. Once I climbed up the stairs the ambiance was totally different. Heavy rush and people waiting in... More

This hotel is the most sought place around Charminar. After a grueling day at shopping, we ended up having lunch at Shadab Restaurant. Got a seat quickly although many large group of people were waiting for their turn to be seated. Service was amazing - we got our food quickly. Food quantity seems to be slightly on the lower side...

I am a vegetarian. Bought and had veg biryani. Was delicious. Non vegetarians didn't like their chicken biryani very much.

Don't be fooled by the looks of this old restaurant. You may think it looks chaotic and old, but don't judge. We went at 3pm and it was still crowded with the local crowd. The 20mins wait was worth it. The waiters meticulously set up our table and cleaned our cutlery and plates right in front of us. He also... More

This was a very crowded restaurant. We had to wait for about 30 minutes. Mutton 65 and Mutton Hyderabadi Biryani was very delicious !! Must dine here when at Hyderabad.
