“Excellent Sunday Brunch ... Excellent Food ... Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Hunting for a nice Sunday brunch after years in Europe and few reviews on the internet I finally decided to visit the Radisson ... There was a chill in the Hyderabadi air... Reached the hotel lobby ....Few inquires .. and we paid for our buffet band ... !!! Straight away to the japenese counter... Chef Mahender was helping our taste buds with his preparations and yes he was friendly with whom we had some light funny moments.... !!!
And then we hit the Bar .... No ... not liquor but the Dilmah tea bar .... M not much into the Ts but yes was nice to see the innovative concept .... We met this gentleman Aditya , director I think and he was helping us with his innovative tea based cocktails.... Was little apprehensive at first sight but then the single sip & it was refreshing and addtictive.... Then started rounds of tea based cocktails and our friend Aditya was so charming with his talks , with his suggestions ....

Food was excellent ... the ambiance was friendly and i dont have words about the warmth in their hospitality .... !!!

A must try ... !!!

Dear Anirudh,

Many thanks for your great feedback and I am so happy to hear that we could make your experience a memorable one.

Dilmah t-Bar is indeed a unique concept, first in India and only eight in the world. We have 31 single origin tea`s being served in the Bar. Tea based cocktails and mocktail are indeed unique. In our efforts to create an authentic Bar, Aditya and his team of bar tenders were trained in Dilmah School of tea, Colombo.

“Families Go Blu”, our Sunday Brunch offers 300 dishes in five outlets and indeed is the largest Sunday Brunch in the city. Our master chef Swami Nandan and his team has created a sumptuous menu in all outlets which keep changing every week to give you a different experience on every visit

Holy Basil, our Asian specialty restaurant serves authentic Thai, Japanese and Chinese cuisine. Each of our three executive chefs is highly professional and creates some exclusive dishes. I suggest that you must visit Holy Basil more often if you appreciate authentic Asian cuisine

I would look forward to welcome you once again at the hotel.

Warm Regards,
Nishan Silva
General Manager

We went here to celebrate my Father in Law's 70th Bday anniversary. The food was exceptional. The service was exceptional. We had missed out on pre-ordering a cake. So initially they said that it would be difficult to arrange for a cake on short notice. But on our insistence, they arranged for a cake very quickly. Overall, the food was very good and the ambience was very pleasant!

We had a fantastic dining experience here. The food was great, but the service staff really stole the show. I have rarely found such good service level & attentiveness - and that too without being overly interfering. There was not a single instance where I had to ask someone to do something - it was already DONE when I needed it! As a small example, when we got up in the final part to get dessert - the dessert spoons were already neatly placed on our table by the time we got back! Excellent service, great food - we would recommend everyone to have a nice time with their friends or family here.

This is one of the few hotels I have stayed in where everything was perfect.

The hotel is new, well appointed with an above average level of service and exceptionally helpful and friendy staff.. The stay there was absolutely seamless.It was a pity that I could not stay longer.

The only minor issue does not concern the hotel directly.Being new, is not that easy to find. There are some signs along the way, but possibly the hotel could consider improving on this.

Highly recommended and excellent value all round./

Room Tip: Rooms facing the internal reception area could be noisy. Exterior facing rooms are better,

The hotel itself is clean (it's almost brand new), the staff are friendly and helpful and for the price it is a good deal (breakfast & internet etc included). However, the rooms, although very large, are almost completely bare, and absolutely freezing. I had to ask for extra blankets and a bathrobe, and set the 'heater' section of my air conditioning unit to 32 degrees, although every time you leave the room the power defaults back to whatever the normal setting is, so it's constantly cold because the size of the rooms means that they take a very long time to heat up. I have noticed this at the Radisson in Delhi too, so if you stay here, bring warm clothes.
As other reviewers have said, the buffets do look appetizing, but for guests staying at the hotel rather than just dining here, the food is perhaps not the most important thing.
The wooden floors and lack of soft furnishings make the guest room feel as though it perhaps isn't quite finished (and seeing a man with a paintbrush in the corridor this morning didn't do much to challenge that suggestion). They are very large rooms though and the beds are very comfortable.
Location isn't such that you can easily leave the hotel for a walk around Hyderabad, but the pool area is nice and there are tables & chairs available (presumably because it's too cold to sit in your room!)
I had planned a weekend during my business trip to enjoy the hotel and relax, but from what I have seen so far this is very much a business hotel and in my opinion not best suited for those who want to spend many hours of the day here (unless perhaps it is the height of summer and you can lie by the pool).

Room Tip: Try to ask for one with a carpet as they may be a bit warmer (not sure if any of the rooms are carpe...

Dear Guest,


Many thanks for your feedback while you stayed at our hotel.

The design & concept of Radisson Blu Plaza Hyderabad is inspired from its adjoining tranquillity, being peaceful, yet elegant.

The hotel is built on a 2.5 acres of area , right in the heart of Banjara Hills, just off the main road. Giving it a unique advantage of location and space

We have noted your feedback regarding the temperature in the room and have taken a corrective action to ensure non recurrence of such an event

We would look forward to welcome you back once again to our hotel

Warm Regards,
Nishan Silva

We had been to Holy basil restaurant and had Thai food. The place is calm, serene and away from the hustle bustle. The staff were very courteous and attentive. The food was served fast. The quality and taste of food was good. They have a decent variety of Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisine. But the choice of desserts is limited.
