Great food!

Right from the cocktails to the main course, the food is great, but the desserts are a big disappointment. We went as a big family, and couldn't meet the minimum spend so had to get a lot of food packed - we had everything from appetizers to dessert - and the food was every bit worth it's price... read more

Adaa has some of the best Dal Makhani that I have ever tasted. With an interesting selection of beverages, the restaurant offers the option of a la carte selection or the traditional Hyderabadi dinner. I would definitely recommend the latter! A filling 6 course meal, it is certainly worth the steep price. The fantastic service is an added bonus!

Had a dinner with a few friends at this restaurant. The setting of this restaurant amist teh royal treatment at the Taj Falaknuma is an experience in itself. I liked their Biryani and Bharwan Paneer. The rest of the dishes were good too. The ambience was excellent and the hospitality was royal. A must visit for an occasional pampering of... More

Stunning room, service and food. Tables set far apart and with beautiful linen, crockery, etc. Interesting cocktails with local ingredients such as a betel leaf martini. All the food was exceptional - the kid lamb shanks were particularly good.

The food is simply amazing and one of the finest Hyderabadi food is served at the restaurant. The black daal is to die for. I would highly reccomend this restaurant. They also have a wide spread for Vegetarians.

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 Hyderabad, do visit. Please book... 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
