In Hyderbad, Eat here!

From roadside eateries to star hotels; from breakfast to midnight biryanis; and from mexican cuisine to hyderabadi; this blog attempts to provide you short reviews for all the places I have eaten so far in Hyderabad!

Without much further ado, if you are looking for reviews of restaurants in Hyderabad by Alphabetic order(I have 180 so far!),

Needless to say, there will be continous updates, and the list is never final! Happy eating!

PS: My apologies to the vegetarians, I very rarely eat veg outside :), so very few recommendations!

Oh! Calcutta

It was by accident that we visited this place, and we were glad that the accident happened ;) !

Given that we are always told that Bengali cuisine is famous for it’s fish delicacies, we decided to focus on fish. We had fried fish and “roshun bhapa maach” – steamed fish topped with a mustard flavoured paste! This item was very delicious, spicy and tangy – all at the same time! Our only complaint was that the quantity was too less – just two pieces! Fried fish was good but nothing out of the ordinary! We also ordered Golden Prawn – and they got a really BIG prawn simmered with various spices! The taste was good, but this was the first time I was seeing such a huge prawn! Never knew such prawns existed!


For main course, we decided to move away from fish and prawns because the items were too costly- We had simple chicken curry with poori (yes, poori!) and chicken biryani. The biryani was saffron flavoured and was much different than the famed Hyderabadi biryani! Overall, we liked the taste and service at this place – definitely on our list to go again :) 

Price: Rs. 1200 for two
Location: Somajiguda
