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

No kids allowed - and that ensures you get to enjoy a romantic meal with one of the best views in town. The menu is quite interesting, with some unique dishes. It is fairly expensive but totally worth it!

As good as it gets - the ambience, the service and most of all, the food. If you are into food, possibly the best place to try exquisite and high-end Indian cuisine. If you are starting out on Indian food, do not visit - the bar will be set too high :) I am a hard-core meat-eater but I did... More

Service was excellent, helpful and informative on what to choose from the menu. We were staying in the hotel and they kindly allowed us to order from the restaurant a la carte and eat in the pavilion. Food was very good but it is the setting that stands out. Lamb starter Hyderabad style was amazing. Best lamb ever. Lamb biryani... More

Firstly, visiting Falaknuma palace which has Adaa Restaurant at the far end on the first floor, is an 'out of this world' experience. Adaa has superb setting and very friendly service. The food taste is not typical Hyderabadi, since it has multinational upper end foreign guests with non spicy grub. Relatively expensive ( RS 5500+) for a couple, but with... More

I went to Taj Falaknuma on my first wedding anniversary. My wife and I were bit skeptical , whether the visit will be worth it. Also I heard some rave reviews about food at 5 star hotels. However after visiting the palace and having dinner at ADAA, my perception totally changed. We were in the awe of the palace after... More

We sat on the balcony and we got excellent service. The food was good! It is prix fixe, about 6 courses plus an amuse bouche. When you order they ask if you want veg or non-veg. I wanted both :-) . Since you have to pick, I said non-veg but they actually remembered and gave me both. I thought that... More

I don't know the price as I was taken here for dinner but I am guessing it was expensive and while the hotel was beautiful and in a great spot the food was average, it was nice but I did have high expectations given the noble surrounds. Cocktails were great though!
