“Good food, limited menu but very well executed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Went to Holy Basil for a celebratory family dinner on a weekday
The restaurant is located at the ground floor of the Radisson Blu Hotel ... sort of open access through the lobby.
Was mostly empty .. felt slightly awkward at having made reservations a day before .. also felt a bit uneasy about the food seeing that it was so deserted.
The menu did not help ... very very limited. Nor did the quite insipid cucumbers and carrots in sweet vinegar accompanied by boiled peanuts.
Ordered quite conservatively ... not wishing to extend exposure to what looked to be a uninspiring dinner .. perhaps even a sob story in the making .. no appetizers, lamb jingtse, some yong chow fried rice, and a chicken phad thai

BUT, the food was just very very good.

Extremely well prepared, very very flavorful and quite simply ... remarkably good

The fried rice was perhaps the best we have had in Hyderabad .. we actually went ahead and ordered two more servings .. we loved it that much.

Overall, food ... absolute contentment
