Nizam is situated near new market area. Food quality is good with variety of options. You will find both veg and non veg food.

Their Dal Makhani is different from what we get in North India. Its very thick. Be careful of the quantity. In packing the waiter gave us just half plate for Rs 100 (+5 for container). We had to fight with the cashier to give a decent quantity as per the price charged. Their tandoori rotis & paneer roll were good.

Placing the order might look tricky but it's quite efficient. Food is very good. Home delivery option is also there and anyone living around Defence Colony knows how many times it has become the only option for ordering food.

Nizam's can still hold its own as far as Kati Kawabs go. Not exactly the cleanest or most hygienic eatery, it has upheld the "to die for" taste of its Katis. And we have had these rolls in places as far as New York but they just do not compare.

Put Nizams on your list of places to visit. I have been eating in restaurants recommended by Rick Stein in the book about his search for the perfect curry. I just had a snack of mutton kathi roll for lunch and it was delicious: true value at 60p (English).

We had kathi rolls here and they were memorably delicious....delicious enough that even though the ambience isn't impressive it doesn't matter. We had single egg double mutton and the single egg double chicken roll. We aren't big into spice so we had it with lime and onion. The rolls were made fresh and came quickly. Our waiter was attentive though... More

I dont know what was special in it, but we liked it so much and the amount was so huge. We took two biriyani and a roll, could not even finish half of it. We were staying in a hotel nearby and had to walk after the dinner to digest some of the food avoiding temptation of having a pull... More

I tried both chicken and mutton rolls and found them to be the best Kathis ever had.But I would stongly recommend chicken over mutton. Mostly around me I saw people eating other different dishes but I will definitely eat only Chicken Kathi Kebab when... More
