The Scene

Few family vegetarian restaurants make waves for great interiors - it must be something to do with the fact that people looking for great interiors don't zero in on family vegetarian restaurants. And it takes lesser time than you took to reflect on that sentence to miss Sri Krsna (you can pronounce that "Krishna" in an emergency) on Road No. 12, tucked rather obscurely into a commercial complex.

Set in a ground floor and a mezzanine, the dine-in relies on the orthodox for ambience ideas. Translated, that means it looks pretty standard. That doesn't hurt - ask Chutney's.

The Food
Sri Krsna promises family vegetarian dining, and does most of it. You have to get your own family as you may have guessed, but they get the "vegetarian dining" part down pat. To take forward the theme of bringing Chutney's into the picture, the question is abegging given the vegetarian benchmark in Hyderabad - how does it compare?

Well, the answer would have to be the crowd sizes. We went on a Saturday afternoon (in Feb 2008) at 2:30pm, and found about 8 persons inside. Well, the place is less than a year old - let's leave it at that.

With close to 100 items on it, Sri Krsna has a long menu. A mixture of South-Indian, North-Indian and Chinese, the list makes you wonder first that there actually are so many vegetarian items. Close to 10 soups and about 30 starters give you enough ways to start. In addition to all the standard items, there are Healthy Jade Veggie Soup, Cauliflower Chettinad, Cochin Banana Fritters and Tulsi Paneer Tikka that showcase some gourmet specialities.

The main course is divided into South, North and Oriental, with South standing out for items not seen too often except in food festivals. If names like Ammas Avial, Veg Kolambu, Vazhakai Porial, Thayir Sadham and Gutti Vankaya Koora mean a lot to you, well, there's more where they came from!

A buffet for Rs. 121 is something the restaurant is trying to showcase as an aggressive draw, and helps you sample about 15 items for the price of 1. The food tastes like it focuses more on health than on taste, so you need to figure if that's just your thing.

The Verdict
We'll go ahead and say it - Sri Krsna is no Chutney's. We hope they will be, for we need one in Banjara Hills. The starting point is introducing tiffins. Sri Krsna has a whole page of them listed on its menu, but annulled. We wonder what happened. And we hope it didn't hurt real bad. Maybe there is something about Chutney's.
