“Decent restrobar - well priced drinks and bites”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Decent by definition is - when food and drinks are decently priced, ambience is decent and also most importantly the waiters are friendly. it makes you to pay the 10% service charges that they levy on your bill with a smile and thank you and thankfully that is intact here.
Drinks are decent - albeit, cocktails lack a tad - they dont still get the mixing bit and may be go stingy with liquors as well.
But if you are sticking with beer( draught suggested), eating nibbles for which they have a great collection and even sampling meals- they have a more than decent collection here. i suggest Nacho Grande for nibbling, Smokey beef burger or felafel for meal or even pastas are nice.
Ambience of the place is great - I prefer their outdoor sitting in the evening as that is slightly quieter than indoors.
Once caveat - dont go thinking they will serve you authentic felafel and nachos - they are not 100% there - but bearable.

“Good place for drinks @ in-orbit mall”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

The place has good selection for drinks. Value of money during happy hrs. Good lake view from the open air seat but -ve side is that the smoking area so not fit with kids. The choice of food is actually restricted to something to munch only & for the cost it's v expensive.

The decor is slightly cramped & news cafe is everything except for the news.... Ltd news papers & that too not properly kept giving the place a messy look... There something v unique, as it gets darker, the music turns from melody to loud noise....

Place is just ok for drinks with friend that too only during happy hrs but otherwise inorbit offers more & better options

“Atrocious, thieving outfit”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Highly over rated restaurant which has overpriced menu for portions that would be enough for a toddler. The food quality is bad enough but the service ensures the overall experience turns to terrible ! A Business lunch time Express meal takes 45 minutes for the order to be served !

The thieving outfit even charges you flat 10% (dis)service charge and adds the Service Tax and VAT on top of it. The ambience is slightly better, though at lunch time it resembles a third bar. Avoid this rotten restaurant everytime, there are dozens of better choices in the In Orbit mall in Hyderabad.

“Good Food, Great Service, Lovely Ambience”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

This place apparently is a hang out for expats in the evenings on certain days. I have been here recently with friends to watch an IPL match. The menu i must warm you is long. A fun place to hang out in evenings or lazy afternoons with friends.. its a small restaurant with quick service personnel's... serving u good food and drinks! overall we all enjoyed and its a nice place for a chit chat with friends. you can have sit out and enjoy the view of lake. Snacks are really delicious with wide variety.

“Mouth watering dishes”

Hotel located near the image gardens lane. The room I had provided safe, air conditioning, flat screen TV and more. Service was courteous and care about the cleanliness of the hotel. Getting to the airport and the lake is very good
