I have always been a foodie and dining in restaurants has now become my hobby. Like a hardcore foodie, these days I keep searching for new or good restaurants to try and today I am going to share my most recent experience at one of my favorite restaurants. I have come to Hyderabad last year, and I used stay in Tarnaka, which is quite near to Secunderabad. Although there are a few small and quite good places to eat in this area, there were two places that I absolutely loved, one is Kim Fung which is a Chinese restaurant and the other is Goodlands. Goodlands is located just next to Aaradhana cinema hall.


Goodlands & its Ambiance

The restaurant does not look so appealing from outside, but once you enter the premises, you get a very cosy and comfortable feeling. There is a bar area where sports channels are played on a large screen, it is more like a sports bar. The restaurant area is pretty big with 7-8 tables of more than 10 seating or less. There is also a private seating area with 5 tables each with 4 seats which is especially good for family settings. I always sat in the family section, even though it gets quite chilly (thanks to ACs) in there, I still love the ambiance. The decorations are simple yet very decent, trust me you won’t complaint.


Food & Service

The food is good, but it is not something that you will die for. Yet, it is delicious and it will make you lick your fingers. Whenever I go to this restaurant, I always order Butter Naan or Tandoori Roti with Veg Kadai or Kadai chicken or Chilly Chicken. I have to tell you that those dishes are very delicious. Not that I have not tried anything else in the restaurant, but those are my personal recommendations.  The other dishes that I experimented were- Chicken Manchurian, it is extremely nice for starters,  Soft Noodles are in nice too. Biriyanis and rices are as good as in any other restaurants so feel free to go for them if you may like.

Last time when I and my husband went for lunch and we ordered Paneer Butter Masala, Butter Naan, Mutton Masala and Veg Fried Rice. Everything was finger-licking good! So, you see, my list of recommendations at this place is getting bigger and bigger, this is also the reason I am sharing my food experience with you here at CityHyd.

The service, I cannot say is the best, it can certainly be better. They usually take no more than 15 minutes to serve, which is fine.



I keep on visiting this restaurant and it has not disappointed me. The food, the ambiance and the comfort level of this place is something I cherish. You can have a quiet evening date with your loved one or even take your family out for dinner. I am sure you will enjoy your time there. In my opinion, a must visit place for a casual homely kind of setup.
