We had meat dishes they were outstanding. Sorbets are also incredible. Pathar ghosh, lamb shanks were prepared with perfect spices and tasted sublime. The staff was incredible helpful and patient. A great team serving traditional cuisine in a historical ambiance. Outdoor dining is a great experience as well at a higher price.

It was an important family occasion. We were in Hyderabad and i wanted to give the family the best with a lunch at the Falaknuma Palace. I wish I knew better.

Highly recommend their pathaar ka gos and dum Nalli. The restaurant requires an advance reservation so call before you arrive at the Hotel. There are two sittings at 7.30 pm and 9.30 pm to choose from. Their sorbets to cleanse the palate were also delicious. An excellent place to dine even as a visitor to Hyderabad.

Very nice spot, on the terrace overlooking the old town. Food was also very nice (set menu). Only thing is that service was very slow.

Very good meal as part of the Monsoon package that the hotel offers. Well designed menu, tasty dishes and nice service. Loved the little touches- the amuse bouche, the sorbet in between courses. All in all a lovely meal in lovely settings
