Mandi@36 Arabian Kitchen

Faham Chicken

When someone asks me to visit an Arabian restaurant , lot of things run in my mind about the food that they might be offering. Authentic or Indianized, Seating, Ambiance Etc.

This new place which is hardly 5 months old checks all the boxes. One of the best Arabian foods that I have had in recent times

Detailed review follows…

Ambiance: Table and Traditional Floor seating setup, Good ambiance and cleanliness, great to visit with family

Service: Staff is well trained to suggest what to order and adept at explaining what kinda dishes they have, which is missing across many other restaurants in the city


Mandi with Chicken (Faham), Fish, Mutton : All three meats were very juicy, tasty and delicious, rice was flavorful as well



The mutton soup was one of the best being served across other Hyderabad Mandi places, it was a little salty for me but very tasty

Faham Chicken (Starter) yet to be added to the menu – Recommended by the Owner Syed Waris. This was the surprise element of the evening. The creamy gravy on the chicken was downright addictive and superb.Extremely delicious dish and a must must try.

Desserts: Tried the Baklava and didn’t like it that much, desserts are procured from other vendors, would have to wait for their in house delicacies to start



Overall : One of the best places in Hyderabad to visit with your family for some lip smacking Mandi

Spice 6 – The Global Cuisine

Spice 6 – A name synonymous with Arabic & Lebanese cuisine and one of my favorite places in Hyderabad which I visit quite often with friends and family alike.

Started in August’14 by Mr. Khaja Yousuf who is quite well known in the culinary world for being associated with Mak’s kitchen earlier and also running Woodbridge hotel’s food and beverage section. He has also undertaken food and catering orders across India for  big corporate houses, parties, marriage functions , concerts etc.

It is easy to locate on the banjara hills main road opp.the old music world which got closed,I was amazed at the ambiance. Good seating capacity, brightly lit , very tidy . they also have Family section on the first floor.

As soon as you are about to enter Spice 6 you are witness to the date palm tree which gives a middle eastern feeling even before you step in. The ground floor which is the common dining area doubles up as a bistro serving smoothies, mocktails, shakes finger food, coffee and other small delectable items

Food :
Saudi Champagne (non-alcoholic) – It was one of the most amazing drinks I have ever tasted . It is a mock tail of sorts , didn’t get info about the recipe to make it but it has orange, apple pieces in it among other stuff.

Tried the chicken shawarma and having had it across Hyderabad I would say that they make the best one with soft pita bread , good amount of chicken , fresh garlic sauce provided. Nothing else could scream satisfaction more than this. Similarly, you get mutton shawarma as well.

Kebab platter – we ordered for mixed platter(Fish,Prawn, Mutton,Chicken) – We got Grilled mutton which was superb, saute prawns which were good, grilled fish was succulent and moist -its flavor was nice , Murg Nawabi kebab – was one of the best I ever had.

Coming to the main course it is and always will be Khabsa Laham – One of the best you can ever have. Saffron colored rice with dry fruits and a piece of mutton placed on top of the rice is by itself drool worthy. The meat is so soft and succulent that if you lift the mutton piece the bone falls off from it.


Amazing range of desserts, Hugely popular Baklava is available in two varieties ( Baklava & Finger Baklava)  they are superbly tasty I might add.
Tried their Badami Kheer , Kunafa, Sitaphal rabdi all were superb.
