“Good Food but too Crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I used to work in Hitech City so often visted this place in 2011. The food and the variety they offer is amazing. I loved the dimsums which are rare to find in Hyderabad. Punjabi food was mouth watering.
Ambience: 4 Stars
Food: 5 Stars

“Fun place for kids, interesting ambience, nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

The big draw is the decor. It's quirky and fun. There are a couple of actual autorickshaws that you can sit in and dine and my son loves this. The tablemats and the wall decor are a lot of fun too.

Plenty of starters to choose from, main courses are not bad. Desserts are a little blah. Same old ice cream and fruit salad kinda thing. The vegetarian section is not bad too.

Go for the experience, not so much the food, because you can get better food at a much better price.

“Good environment.. Average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This eatery stays up to its name, "Nautanki Gali". It maintains an ambience akin to a road-side dhaba, where spicy food used to be served. There is so much for fun as you find a mock auto-rickshaw turned into a sitting area, etc. But thats it!. Expect no further, and you will come out happy. The food is just ok. Further, the kind of food offered there does not match the environments sought to be created. With the concept of Nautanki gali, emphasis ought to have been more on mughlai food, north indian food, chaat and papri, or perhpas rajasthani food too. However, they serve you with Chinese and continental as well. Huh!! ... but anyway, the place is fun zone for sure... however service may at times become an issue there.

“not a place for vegetarians”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The sandwiches were placed besides the veg counter without the name plate.. most of my friends who were pure vegetarians, had it .. and realised that they were chicken sandwich. ?. It was a shock ... after the argument with the manager. .The only thing he told was sorry. They served pastries also with egg without mentioning egg or eggless.. it was a tragic night at nautanki gali ..where we paid for almost 500 per person .. alll in waste.. a big no no for vegetarians...

“Nice ambiance but need improvement in food and service quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I have been to this place 2-3 times. Their ambiance and concept is very good. They are having good spread of food option. Initially their food and service quality was good but when I visited last time it was not up to the mark. For getting plates I have to wait for long.
