Bikanervala is located at Banjara Hills, one of the upmarket places in Hyderabad. There is ample of parking space provided by this restaurant.
I had visited around three to four times and every time I’d ordered dosa. The ambience is good and proper hygiene is maintained. Even the handwash area was clean, the tissues are properly arranged and kept. Upon entering the restaurant, there is a mithai (sweet) section on the right and on the left is the reception. It’s a self-service, veg restaurant.
I like the dosa they serve. It’s thin and crispy, and tasty too. So, this time, again I had ordered the same, Masala Dosa – a must try. Though the chutney flavour and sambhar might be slightly weak from the other authentic dosa restaurants, you would certainly like the crisp dosas.
Apart from dosa, I ordered paneer pakoda, chhola bhatura, tea and jalebi. Paneer pakoda was good; the paneer in it was soft. It could have been made slightly spicy. I felt it was high-on-bland side. Or could have been served with a teekhi chutney instead of a sweet relish.
Chhola Bhatura was okay; it was served with onions and pickle. I liked chhola more than the Bhatura. Coming to Jalebi, my favourite 😀 this one food shouldn’t be missed if you are planning to visit Bikanervala. The only timings for Jalebi, as I was told, is early in the morning till 11 am. Jalebis tasted same as the one we would get in north India – crisp-yet-soft, it was well balanced with the sugar syrup. It didn’t turned soggy even after keeping for 10 minutes; I was enjoying the other delicacies 😀
I was scanning the menu for filter coffee but couldn’t find it. Since I wanted a beverage, I landed to tea. It’s good but made through vending machine. I would suggest if you aren’t craving for tea, then don’t go for it.
Bikanervala offers buffet lunch and dinner too but I never had, so couldn’t tell more about it.
A perk for ladies! There is a Mehndi wala who sits near the entrance of this restaurant.
