This restaurant in Hi-tech city would be perfect if you’re on a low budget and still want some delicious south indian food to chomp on.

The spicy venue:
Ambience wise the place isn’t that great and is just about average. But the thing to look out for at this place is the delicious food. They have the traditional south Indian thali which is extremely reasonable. Some of the dishes to try out here are the natukodi iguru, bommidayala pulusu, mutton iguru and the ulavacharu biryani. I would suggest you opt for the take away or home delivery rather than dining in.

One of the most popular restaurants in Hyderabad for south Indian cuisine, ulavacharu is undoubtedly the best when it comes to taste. The setting and ambience on the whole represents the telugu culture and tradition. The food reminds you of the by gone era, those good old days of grandma cooking some authentic delicacies for her loved ones. It also is very spicy on the palette front so be prepared if those kind of spice levels aren’t your cup of tea. A must try here is the Raju gari kodi pulav and royyala iguru.

Who doesn’t love this place, even though it’s ridiculously over priced and over hyped! And yet the hyderabadies love to visit this place especially for their breakfast fair. As the name suggests the chutneys are to die for and so are the soft idlis. Rawa dosa and pesarattu and the garlic dosa come a close second. Initially there used to be just one outlet at the panjagutta circle but now they have various branches all through the city.
