We went to the Taj Falaknuma for a special treat before leaving Hyderabad, and decided to have the English afternoon tea. The service from the moment we arrive was impeccable - I couldn't fault it apart from the fact that it did start to get a bit suffocating, but I guess that is just the different cultures.
The food was really nice, very tasty little nibbles - sandwiches, scones and whatnot. They offered to refill, and having been to The Ritz, I assumed this was included in the price - I'm afraid not, we got charged extra for some more sarnies!
The setting is amazing, really something worth seeing - it is just such a pity that it is surrounded by such poverty and suffering, I couldn't help thinking that had I known there were slums all around I might not have come, it made me very sad.
Service was great, value for money was ok, novelty value was up there - I do have a weakness for afternoon tea though, so perhaps if that's not your thing you wouldn't be so impressed.
