Hotel Parwaaz

Once a hubbub of cut-throat biryani culture, Parwaaz is today nothing more than a mere shadow of its glorious past. With a careless management and a lousy maintenance, this eventuality was inevitable.

The restaurant has an Irani café on the ground floor catering to the chai-sipping gossipmongers, and a Shahi dining hall on the first floor for a "full-fledged fine-dining experience". The lighting in the so-called Shahi dining hall is kept very dim so that you won’t discover that it is no different from the café downstairs. You can expect a slight tremor and an automatic increase in the decibel level in case you walk in with a female companion who doesn’t bear a veil.

Requesting for a menu at this place would be sheer blasphemy. However, He (the waiter) will get you one (the only one) if you ask for it a little impolitely. On close observation, you’ll discover that the menu is an assortment of Indian, Moghlai, "Chinese" and ""Continental"" dishes. But you better stay out of any out-of-the-box thinking and bold decision making here. To help you realize this, the waiter too will do his part by discouraging you from ordering anything other than Chicken Biryani.

Tandoori Chicken is the only starter that is readily available here. In fact you’ll get it ten seconds after placing the order (other starters take more than half an hour). And you won’t take too long to find out the secret behind the breakneck dispatch. After all, food shouldn’t be wasted even if it is a day old and is just on the verge of becoming stale.

But we Hyderabadis can endure any tribulation for a delectable biryani. Though not as pleasing as it used to be, the Chicken Biryani here is still one of the best preparations in town. Laced with a passionate dash of spice and delightfully tender meat, it is definitely worth a try.

They also have a "special" version of it in which you get two pieces of chicken and enough rice that can serve two people. You might be a bit disappointed with the accompanying raita and mirchi kaa salan. Order a Butter Chicken Masala if you like to mix your rice with nice succulent gravy.

However, the Mutton Biryani (and by interpolating, anything to do with mutton) is avoidable. More often than not, the mutton pieces are likely to be so stiff, that they would put any tyre manufacturer to shame.

You won’t have much of a choice in the dessert course (psst psst, you have no choice at all). You can order Khubani Ka Meetha with or without ice-cream. It is served in a pasted form rather than the semi-crushed form which you get at the high-priced places. It tastes pretty good, and serves as a good neutralizer for the spicy grub.

Last but not the least, Parwaaz is one of the very few restaurants in town where the bill always comes out less than what you think it could be. You can go for it if you are low on budget, don’t really care about the ambience, and are in a mood for a good biryani.
