Must try

Famous for biryani. Very crowded during lunch hours. Better option is Take away rather waiting to be seated. Portions of rice in biryani is way too much compared to the mutton or chicken pieces.

We have ordered Chicken Biriyani, Dum Ka chicken, Naan ,Boti... More

Please pardon me if you feel I am over exaggerating here but I don't think that I am when I say that Shadab's is the best place for the hyderabadi biryani there is. Well it is not the cleanest of the places with a few cats seen here and there but it has got a beautiful sitting area where you... More

Based on the reviews and recommendations we entered this place after a spending a busy Sunday afternoon around the vicinity of the Charminar area. The air-con family section upstairs was OK, however, they should think of providing fresh table clothes!! We were there to try Mughlai food only, and ordered Shadab special kebab as starters (included an assorted platter of... More

This is one of the best place in Hyderabad to have paya soup which is available all time. Don't forget to order naan bread that tastes good with the soup. Of course biryani is trademark in restaurants at old city but try paya soup, its made with goat leg which is good for the bones.

Before tackling the food, we loved the squat down on the raised wooden cots, with square tables for the dishes. This was truly traditional, and made the lunch very special. We had the Pakistani Mutton, with a green gravy thick with cashew paste which we licked off the plate, and the Roast Mutton, which were cubes fried golden dry. The... More

The Biryani served here is amazing -quality is good but the quantity is simple amazing ! We had a very hectic day roaming around the city and finally reached this place famous for Biryani's. And as expected there were quite a few people in queue waiting to be served. So we decided to parcel up the food and enjoy at... More
