Very good Hyderabadi fare at reasonable prices. The Biryani is a must, otherwise follow the waiter's advice. They know what they are talking about. They have a bar that we didn't take advantage of. Personally, I reckon the atmosphere is a little too cold. But that's the only minus.

Our trip to The Golconda Bowl was unexpected and fantastic! Very low key and simple , the restaurant lets the food speak for itself. Traditional Hyderabadi cuisine with an excellent staff that susses out individual tastes and caters to just that. Eager to experiment , they happily complied with my strange request for a Jal jeera cocktail with Gin... love... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this food and the service. The owner/manager of the restaurant helped us order (we asked for it) and the dishes were FANTASTIC - arguably one of the best meals we had in India. Wonderful spices, tender mutton, flavorful vegetarian dishes and roti that I can still taste. SO GOOD! Although this place is difficult... More

Being one of those who are convinced that Haleem cannot be created outside of Old Hyderabad, I decide to challenge myself by visiting Golconda Bowl at Hauz Khas Village. Ordered Haleem and a few other things, once it arrived on the table, I held my breath took a spoonful. . . . No i wasn't disappointed, must admit it was... More

I visited them on a crazy weekday afternoon when the restaurant was sparsely occupied. The place is quite tastefully decorated with nice painted glass items all around. The place does have a romantic setting making it perfect for a meal for two. We started with awesum, soft and succulent patthar ka gosht which simply melted in our mouths. I just... More

Was wanting to visit Gun Powder, after weaving thru back alleys and up many stairs found a large crowd waiting. The place looked rather ordinary so we decided not to wait. As we walked back down the stairs we stumbled upon The Golconda Bowl. Was not that hungry so did not order to much, but the food was excellent and... More

I've had a lot of biryanis but this one is simply out of the world. Paradise Hyderabad is highly over-rated and doesn't stand a chance in front of Golconda's biryani. I bit my fingers twice while eating. Make sure you order the haleem. the brown roasted oninons on top of the haleem make it worth every slurp.

Hauz Khas village is known to have a number of restaurants n bars in the narrow lanes and by lanes apart from the designer studios but this place is definitely worth a mention.. Gosht biryani was indeed 1 of the best i've had so far in Delhi NCR. Served along with Mirchi ka salan, it changed my perception about Hyderabadi... More

Lunched at Golconda Bowl last Sunday. Reached there to discover we were the only ones. We were led to a table but after sitting for a while, we were asked to move to another table by another staffer. I wanted to leave but we had really wanted to visit the place for long. We ordered an appetiser (patthar ka gosht)... More

Went there with couple of colleagues for lunch. Were just exploring the streets when we came across Naivaidhyam South Indian restaurant. Decided to eat there but there was a waiting there so we decided to explore more. There just behind that restaurant tucked inside a winding street we found Golconda. With the intent of savouring an Authentic Hyderabadi biryani we... More
