“Outstanding Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The hotel is called Rukmini Riviera and the restaurant in the hotel is called Dwaraka if I am not wrong. I had eaten there for 4 days in a row and was left wanting more.

Good Points:

Unbelievably good food: The most sinfully delicious South Indian food I have ever eaten. Perfect and super tasty so much that all I wanted to do was just to keep on eating all day long. Lip smacking, finger lickingly delicious food.

Nice Ambience: The restauratnt is centrally a/c and is well laid out. With huge screens showing movies, sports and music. Also it is comfortably laid out and makes dining here a pleasant experience.

Excellent service: Prompt and warm service makes you want to go back there

Amazing value for money: To top the brilliant quality of food, it is also extremely reasonably priced. Wont burn a hole in your pocket. Pls note that they add service charge in the bill itself and hence it's ok to not leave additional tip over and above the service charge.

Sumptuos Breakfast Buffet: The restaurant has a decent breakfast buffet in the morning. Cornflakes, cut fruits, fruit juices, bread jam and butter, Idli, Vada and dosa, tea and coffee... :-) the only thing I did not like too much was the super short timing. The buffet ends @ 9.30 am sharp and those travellers who have gone to relax may have to rush in and finish their breakfast before 9.30 am

Not so Good:

Struggle to find any. If you press me hard to think, then I think the restaurant struggles a bit with service when it gets full, which is pretty often. The waiters seem to lose it when pressed hard. Not lose their temper, but the otherwise efficient service standards dip a bit. Food quality also dips (only a little bit) when it gets full and the chef is loaded with multiple orders to process.

Try and avoid peak times which is 9 - 9.30 am for breakfast and 1.30 - 3 pm for lunch, especially on weekends.

Overall, a rocking place to eat. Will go there as many times as I can and wil strongly recommend this to all.

Note: The restaurant is pure Veg. Jain Options are not available. So Non-Vegetarian eaters and Jain Food eaters, please look elsewhere to fill your tummy. Also, Sodexo food / meal vouchers are accepted here...!!!

I have been comming to this hotel from year 2006 and the quality was at probably better. Over time this went down. Previously my openion was very good and I stayed in first Floor. But recently I stayed in 4th Floor room where the rooms were not maintained properly. Also lots of wood for their kitchen was lying everywhere. Parking places are always tight with loads of Govt vehicles with MLAs staying over in this hotel.

But south Indian food in their restaurent actually exceeds standards set by even a 4* Hotel.

Room Tip: Take Room in first floor, Lift is quite terrible.

Stayed for two nights at this hotel with my family while doing some work in Hyderabad. The room we stayed in was large but little dark in the decor. All rooms are facing road-side which makes them a bit noisy, but we were still able to get sleep. Hotel doesn't have its own restaurant, but, makes delivery from the nearby Andhra mess. There is also a near-by "Dwaraka Pure-Veg" restaurant, which is quite good.

Location of the hotel is quite good, very near to Hussain Sagar and Andhra Pradesh Secretariat. Price is OK for a central hotel in Hyderabad, not a star-hotel but great for a few nights. Will stay again if I have more work in Hyderabad.

This is the most famous hotel located near to AP assembly. Most of the political, cultural people visit this hotel. I am here with my parents for 2 days and found satisfactory. Room Service is average.
Room decoration is impressive. This hotel is close to several visiting places in Hyderabad. This hotel is close to all private travels that leaves to all over INDIA. This Hotel very much close to Nampally railways station.

This hotel was located right in the middle of the car free shopping zone. It is surrounded by shops. There are numerous restaurants just blocks away near the Plaza Mayor. It was a great price for its location. Most tourist spots were within walking distant.Nice place to saty wit budget rate...
