Gastronomy at its best

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... read 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

Adaa is one of the restaurants at Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad. Since we were entertaining guests from abroad, the venue for the formal dinner was decided to be an Indian Restaurant. The food is amazing, rich with Indian flavourrs. I wouldn't call it value for money though. I have spent less on similar food. I would still recommend a... More

What a super quaint restaurant that seats only a limited number of guests at a time. The food is superbly chosen with the help of the chef or his assistant who comes and assist you with your preferences. If in Hyderabad and you don't eat here you have missed something !

Retains the character and taste of the hyderabadi cusine. Cooked and served to perfection. Soup, starters and main course get better with every visit, but desserts remain a disappointment. Khubani & double ka meeta are not close to the authentic tastes. Without a paan at the end the dinner doesnt seem complete.

What a great setting for a wonderful Indian meal! The service was crisp and courteous. The Indian dishes were sublime! Our 4 top shared a wide variety of veg and non-veg and were not disappointed in any way. In fact we were blown away!

The soup came in a small cup. In fact, I had requested the Chef of this restaurant, that I may not be able to eat much, as I am a poor eater. He agreed. I thought that he had sent a small cup of soup intentionally. It was not. The "Makai Badam Ka Shorba" is always served in a small... More
