HYD Mahal Restaurant: Hyd Mahal serves Hyderabadi and North Indian food, but its biryani really stands out. This restaurant serves authentic Hyderabadi dishes, and also conjures up some great cocktails and mocktails. Try the Virgin Paradise or Fruit Punch for proof. For starters, must-tries include Patthar ka Ghosht, Aloo Took, Aloo ka Garlay, Lukmi, and Hyderabad Special Prawns. For veggies, theres Bagara Baingan, or Achari Bhindi. The Hyderabadi biryani, however, is the pice de rsistance, and is accompanied by cucumber raita and Mirchi ka Salan. The meal is completed with the amazingly flavourful Khubbani ka Meetha stewed apricots with rich cream.
