    I have a stop over for two days in Hyderabad next week. I am a big food lover and know that Hyderabad is famous for its biryani. This trip to Hyderabad will most probably be my only trip there and I want to get the best biryani there.
    So guys please give me details of the place which sells the best biryani as well as other specialties of Hyderabad.

    Paradise restaurant on MG Road in Secundrabad is famous for its biryani. They have plenty of other dishes too. There is also this Shadaab hotel near Charminar where biryani is just out of this world. I find Shadaab to be much better then Paradise although Paradise serves mostly traditional recipe but Shadaab guys have been experimenting and prepare according to modern taste.

Their vegetable biryani is under rated but it's nice as well, it has a suffice amount of masala and has a spiciness to it. Here is their address: Beside Astoria Hotel, RTC Cross Road, Chikkadpally, Nallakunta, Hyderabad.
