Suggestions for restaurants in Gachibowli/Hyderabad

My wife and I are going to visit our daughter who is taking a semester at the University of Hyderabad. We are looking for great restaurants to take her to (she'll be saving money as she will be there for 6 months and then going to Europe before returning to the States. She has eaten at the Spice Junxion in the Taj Hotel which she said was great.

We are interested in both places that serve Hyderabadi food and food from the rest of Andhra Pradesh.

We were also thinking of doing some day trips outside of Hyderabad so I was thinking that outside the city there might be better places to find good food representative of Andhra Pradesh.

BTW we are leaving on Sunday.

Thank you.

  1. I saw this posting rather late, but I want you to know that I think Hyderabad is one of the best food towns in India!

    If you get this in time, go to Shadab Restaurant. It's very close to Charminar and the Bazaar. It's been an institution for years and has my favorite Biryani - The Shadab Special Biryani!

    Paradise is also an institution, and it's quite good, but I prefer Shadab.

    Regarding Andhra food, once you're out of Hyderabad you will have many places to sample real Andhra Pradesh cuisine. It's spicy, though!

    1. Anything new? Going to hyderabad in December. Staying @ Westin Mindspace
