 Home of Multi Cuisine
multi cuisine in ShikaarThe Shikaar on Banjara Hills, Road # 2 offers good cuisine for the food lovers of Hyderabad, the vegetarians as well as the non-vegetarians.

The interior of the hotel is well done with drawings and paintings of tigers adorning the walls. The pug marks of tigers and deers follow you from page to page of the menu.

The dishes in Shikaar are distinct, each with its own flavour and aroma. No, none of the standard common masala that makes every dish taste the same. The menu opens with a choice of cold beverages and hot soups. One can choose from the chicken, tomato, mushroom and asparagus soups. The special dishes of this restaurant are tandoori milan (the mixed patter), the malai kebab (tender and creamy) and tengri kebab.

Although the Shikaar offers more than the usual assortment of non-vegetarian dishes there are choices aplenty for vegetarians, too. The paneer shaslik (paneer barbecued with capsicum, onions, and tomatoes) and the paneer urji in the vegetarian section are other dishes to look out for. Apart from paneer dishes you could go in for methi malai mattar ( creamy, with the smell of methi predominating) or the sabji Amritsari (vegetables in a cashew based gravy).

Hotel ShikaarThe non-vegetarian section consists of an array of items made of chicken and mutton. The murgh kali mirch, much favoured by yhe royalty in Lucknow has lots of black pepper. It is hot and spicy for those who like it that way. The methi chicken with methi smell predominating, and murg lajawaab, a house specialty with chicken in a saffron flavored curry with onions and baby potatoes are the other dishes to relish.

Among the mutton preparations, the buna gosht (pot roasted lamb cooked in its own juices over a slow fire) looks excellent with meat tender and juicy. Another dish to go out for is the tawa gosht which is little bit spicy. For those with a taste for something different, the safed mas (literally white meat) a royal specialty from Rajasthan, looks extremely good. There is a choice of roti or chawal along with dahi, and papadsto go will the nonvegetarian helpings. If you like garlic, certainly give the garlic naan a try.

The staff in the Shikaar are well trained and courteous and help in choosing the dishes. In the rice section apart from the usual offerings, the tawa biryani is very different from the usual Hyderabadi biryani. The rice and the chicken are cooked separately and then mixed.

A dinner for two should average around Rs 250 to Rs 350, desserts included.
