Shah Ghouse Cafe

Top choice hyderabadi in Hyderabad

During Ramadan, Hyderabadis line up for Shah Ghouse's famous haleem (a thick soup of pounded spiced wheat, with goat, chicken or beef, and lentils) and at any time of year the mutton biryani is near-perfect. Don't expect ambience: just good traditional food, in a no-frills upstairs dining hall. Wash it down with a delicious lassi (₹60).
