Hyderabad Restaurants

Where & What to Eat in Hyderabad

Those visiting India in hopes of savoring authentic local cuisine will not be disappointed with what Hyderabad has to offer. Signature Hyderabadi delicacies are available around every corner, while other cuisine types such as Chinese, Thai, Mediterranean, Western, French and even Korean is in abundance too, showing that Hyderabad can be a cultural melting pot of sorts.

Air conditioning is common in some restaurants whereas other eateries boast of casual outdoor seating arrangements. Nawabi-style Hookah, which is a type of water pipe, can be rented by the hour. Prices vary and if you don’t see indication of how much they charge, do ask the restaurant staff about it.

Most restaurant patrons can look forward to a prompt takeaway service, or also known as “parcel” service. This means that you can order food and it will be packed for you without delay. Food is usually packed in a presentable manner for a get-together but for a more casual setting at home, you may opt to bring your own environmentally-friendly food carrier.

Tip: As posh as they sometimes seem, most restaurants in Hyderabad may not be well-equipped to offer patrons the convenience of credit card payment. This is why it pays to come prepared with enough cash so that you will not be left embarrassed should you decide to pay for a party of friends. Tipping is not a must, but if you do leave a tip to a deserving waiter or waitress, be prepared to earn one of their most winning smiles of the day!
