True Hyderabad Delight

The portion size is pretty good and all items on the menu is mouth watering and you will be spoiled for choices. It is... read more

There is only One original Shadab Hotel in Hyderabad, situated in the busy Ghansi Bazaar. And I was on a culinary trip to search for the best Mutton Biriyani in Hyderabad. After trying 3 other renowned places, this surfaced out to be the best. Yes, I recommend Shadab's Biriyani as THE BEST Biriyani in Hyderabad. It was worthy enough to... More

Whenever foreign groups or even Indians, come for a visit to Hyderabad, my favourite food joint to give them a meal is Shadaab Restaurant opposite Madina Building, Chaminar area. Though it is situated in a crowded and noisy part of town, once you climb the steps to the first floor restaurant, you are in a different world. The aromas of... More

This place is close to Charminar, and in my mind is without doubt the best place for biryani in Hyderabad, or maybe anywhere in the world :-) Also, great are the kababs and lassi here. I particularly like the Reshmi Kabab which has got a great egg white reshmi coating on it, I've never seen anything else like that anywhere... More

This is another great place to eat the famed Hyderabadi biriyanis. The downstairs restaurant is extremely simple, like a roadside eatery. We went to the first floor air conditionned restaurant, which was full to capacity, and we waited about half an hour for a table. With curtains drawn even in daytime it is quite dim and therefore has a somewhat... More

We had been to this place last weekend. Very close to Char minar. Weekends are crowded. 20 minutes waiting. 25 minutes for service. The AC is not great. The interiors are really pathetic. Looks like the building in under construction. Does not give you a feel of a good eating place. We ordered for the famous Hyderabadi biriyani (chicken)- Shahdab... More

This was my second visit to Shadab. When I asked business associates where to get biryani in Hyderabad this was the place they mentioned. They'd say Paradise but for the very best go to Shadab.

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
