we first visited shadab in 2010 on an off chance and were swept off our feet. Then again this time the experience was wow. The best biryani we have had anywhere in the world and believe us we have traveled a bit. The rush at 10 in night, the long wait before one could get a table. And finally when the legendary biryani arrives and the lid is taken off, the aroma filling our noses and the mouth watering smells. It was all exactly the same as last time four years back.
The draw backs were also as much there. The place still feels kind of dirty. No cards only cash. And the seating is still stuffy.
Prices have gone up a bit but not too much.
Finally perfectly cooked very affordable biryani to pack and take home and not to sit in and eat

No trip to the Charminar is complete without a stop to Hotel Shadab for its biryani. I wouldn't necessarily say this is the best biryani in town but it's certainly one of the best. The lassi was also very tasty.

It was during ramdaan time, our cab driver was sugesting some other place for lunch due to jam packed Pathergatti but, i fortunately discarded the sugestion and left the car behind and walked from Charminar to Madina ,even my wife got annoyed but ,when we were served the mutton biryani we forgotten everything . The flavours aroma marination seasoning everything was at its place we enjoyed it very much and it was evident why they got awards .We ordered Chicken Halim they serve Halim during Ramdaan only (according to the waiter) Halim was good then the mouthwatering Khubani ka meetha arrived it was really pleasure for the taste buds aperfect desert. The waiter was very nice and elaborated all the dishes and also made us feel special . Total paisa wasool
