It's nearing one in the afternoon. Soft music blends
easily with carefree banter and tingling glasses.
Waiters glide, meandering smoothly around the tables,
serving quietly. Efficiently. Everyone looks happy
and content, even the people waiting for a table!
That's always the scene at The Hub, an upmarket
multi-cuisine restaurant. Little wonder, that a

hospitality, the quantities are generous. Get
there on time though, for as the afternoon or
evening progresses, getting a table could be a
long wait. The Hub has now started an Express
home delivery service that delivers food in
a few selected areas including Banjara Hills and

the stomach as well as the senses.
