Do you want to be a royal for a day, bask in the luxury of a bygone era of indulgence and aromas? Then, Adaa at the Falaknuma palace is the place to go. You must book in advance. I prefer lunch as one has a guided tour of the palace after the feast. While there is a prix fixe tasting... More

I was recommended to come to the Taj Falaknuma and frankly the tour of the hotel was worth the cost of the meal. The building and grounds are impeccable. At Adaa I went for the veggie feast which I regretted--too much food and I am not sure I did it justice. Tried everything but twice as much as I could... More

I had a dinner with my family on 11 April 2016. This is a small restaurant with great ambiance. The tour of the palace with relics of the 6th Nizam of Hyderabad add to the worth. Food was great with biryani and double ka meetha giving the real Hyderabadi flavour to the whole dining experience.The cutlery and other decor matching... More

The service is great and staff courteous. The table layout and cutlery is worth mentioning here (Check the picture attached) Take the table next to the window if you want to enjoy the view of the old city. From the menu i would recommend 'haleem'
