What I tried there was their amazing non veg thali….Raj Guru Bhojanam which included the below delicacies
One Sweet.. Fruit Juice.. Poori
Tamarind Rice.. Two Curries.. Fried Veg
Dal.. Chicken.. Mutton.. Nelluri
Chepala Pulusu.. Royyala Vepudu
Kodi Guddu.. Mixed Raitha
Veg Pickle.. Rasam.. Pappu Chaaru
Banana.. Sweet Pan.
They serve Thali Veg and Non Veg Thalis during lunch time. Today I went there during lunch time and ate as if their is no tomorrow.
The service is really fast and efficient. You are greeted with a nice mango juice and sheera. I just loved the sheera. It reminded me of the sheera which they make in Maharashtra during Sathyanarayan pujas.
Then comes the huge Thali which has plethora of Tegulu delicacies. You can take as many refills as you want. Another best part of the meal is the Paan at the end of it : )
There is no refill for Puri, Sheera and Paan. You can order them for extra charge.
Pricing is bit on heavier side but I don’t mind paying a bit extra as you can taste so many amazing telugu delicacies and the service is really good. The Kuchipudi Veg Bhojanam is for $13, Non Veg Bhojanam is for $16 and Raj Guru Bhojanam is for $19
I totally recommend this place 🙂
