You will love this place, if you have got a table. Bharwaan Paneer tikka is better than most offered by others. The Nimazi handi should be preferred. The Subz Gulzar Biryani is better not only in taste but also quantity. Besides the food, the ambience & the hospitality is too good. If you are in... read more

I called at 8:30 on a Saturday for booking a table for lunch for a few days later. The guy at the reception told me to call tomorrow since the concerned person had left for the day. Incredible!!! And this is a 5/7 star hotel. Sounded like i was speaking with someone from a government department Really bad customer handling

Exquisite food. Pathar-ka-goshta was excellent and must try. Almond stuffed chicken main course was smooth and light. Berry sorbet was super hit.

Amazingly exquisite cocktails and very well cooked food. Loved the magnolia blossom cocktail, the hyderabadi biriyani and patthar ka gosht. Strongly recommend everyone to go here for lunch.

It's not easy to get a reservation at the restaurants at Taj Faluknuma Palace because it is one of the most luxurious properties managed by the Taj chain - a palace of the former Nizam of Hyderabad. The whole experience of visiting the property is one of exclusivity and luxury - worth the experience if one can afford to pay... More

It was my parents' wedding anniversary and I had arranged for a surprise lunch at Adaa, Falaknuma. I gave the food order in advance to the restaurant manager and also paid them in advance. The restaurant manager promised that there will be cake and flowers arranged for them with 'happy anniversary' card. Now, the sad part is that they didn't... More

The Adaa serves typical Indian( Mughalai fare). Most of the food is slow cooked which is typical of Hyderabadi cuisine. The ambiance was opulent and lovely and sets the pace for the gastronomy that follows. The menu is very selective. We had vegetarian and the hung curd kebabs were especially delectable. Service is impeccable and special mention to Jittin who... More

Senior Associate Santosh Prajapati delighted us with his astonishing accuracy in serving. In turn, we had a memorable experience at Adaa, one of the Top 100 Restaurants in the world (Taj Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad). The Executive Chef of this hotel Arun Sundararaj has been transferred to New Delhi; Chef Zaki, the second in command was hospitalized…and the mantle ultimately fell... More
