Govind ki bandi has an iconic following in Hyderabad! The idlies , dosas and bondas are truly delicious. Of course filled with trans fat! They are not very healthy. The idlies are safer than the rest in terms of health. But truly worth indulging in!

You know you are at someplace special when you see a crowd of foodies gathered around a brightly painted pushcart in a bylane in Hyderabad Old City. The eponymous Govind Ki Bandi is fast becoming a must visit place in Hyderabad for delicious dosas, vadas and idlis, all made with a unique twist that gives them an extra kick. Be prepared to wait a while, or get there bright and early as we did on an early summer morning in May. The dosas and coconut chutney were to die for as was the tawa roasted masala vada. A extra generous helping of butter, diced onions and mirchi, along with a tomato squeezed onto the dosa batter which contains a layer of dilute upma mix makes a killer dosa. Man am I already missing the place, and it is only a week since I ate there.

Excellent Butter dosa, idli and wonderful bajjis.
However allow at least 30 minutes before your turn for order is materialised.
However the wait and the aroma wets your appetite further...
keep discovering hyderabad.

Govind Bandi is a famous Street Food joint in the old city area of Hyderabad, India. It is situated very close to the historic monument Charminar. The menu is very limited - Dosas, Idilis and Vadas. The secret is the loads of Amul Butter that goes into preparing the Dosas & Idilis. The secret Masala they put on the Dosas and Idilis make them really delicious. Though slightly spicy, the Dosas and Idilis should not be missed. For those less brave, there are plain Butter Dosas and Idilis, which too are equally delicious. The Vadas too are very good at this stand-and-eat joint.

The average cost of any item is less than $1. Due to the butter, one’s hunger is sated fast. The Bandi (Street side shop) opens at 5.30 in the morning and closes at 11 am. The best time is to go early as the crowds start building up by 8 am.

For tourists it is an ideal breakfast option before going to visit the nearby Salar Jung Museum and Charminar. Not too well known with tour operators, one should take a right turn at the fountain just before Charminar and proceed for 500-700 mtrs. People come from all parts of the city to taste these delicacies.
