Flavours

Flavours, pure vegetarian restaurant, located at K S Lane, Hanuman Tekdi, Sultan Bazaar, is a unit of Kapadia Hotels & Resorts Pvt. Ltd. The restaurant is housed in the D & J Grande Hotel. Sushil Kapadia, an industrialist who manages many businesses recently added this venture. “It was my father’s dream to run a specialty restaurant, so that people are aware of the authentic food. In the cosmopolitan world people are cooking what is easier and not many know of the delicacies their state is famous for,” says Sushil.

Fulfilling his father’s dream in flat two years with construction of a hotel with 34-rooms, a small hall and roof top party area. Incidentally, the hotel name D & J stands for his two daughters – Devika and Jahnavi.

“In constructing the hotel, everything has been procured locally,” Sushil shares with pride. “Even raw materials for the restaurant are procured locally,” he adds. The interiors of the hotel have been done by his wife and eldest daughter, who is a student of NIFT, Hyderabad. The hotel opened to public on Dussehra Day last year, while the authentic Flavours restaurant opened on February 12 this year.

If you are a Gujarati or a Rajasthani, and are missing your nani or dadi or mom’s yummy Gujarati or Rajasthani cooking, look no further head to Flavours.  Sushil says that Flavours is the only restaurant to present the most awaited Vegetarian Maharaja Thaal in Hyderabad. “Food Connoisseurs must step into Flavours, to enjoy rare and authentic Gujarati and Rajasthani delicacies. What we offer here is a clean, natural, healthy, wholesome vegetarian food. Exactly, what you enjoy at home. You’ll love it,” he says.

Located on the first floor of the hotel, the inside view of the restaurant is visible from the road, if one just looks up. You would see turbaned waiters. Once up in the restaurant, there is peace. The table arrangements are fine and readily can accommodate big and small groups. Making myself comfortable, I was given a refreshing welcome drink. The Maharaja Thaal was placed before me. There were many items, in short the plate was full, with little space in the middle to put the main ingredients – rice, chapatti or poori. A waiter approached to find out what I would prefer, poori or chapatti. As the items were different, I agreed to sample a bit of everything.

I got to sample four curries – one each of Gujarati and Rajasthani delicacies, and two normal Indian curries – one aloo subji and the other a paneer sabji. There were two dals, two kadhis, one plain rice, one zeera rice, two sweets, fruit chaat and butter milk. “On the thaal, there are 16 items to savour,” says Pradeep  Dutt, vice president, D & J Grande. If you love some sweet in everything, you will undoubtedly like the Gujarati food, but if you like something spicy, then the Rajasthani dishes are for you.

“The staff at the restaurant is from Mumbai and specially trained in authentic Gujarati and Rajashtani food,” shares Sushil. Pradeep adds that the menu is changed every time. “We don’t repeat the lunch items during dinner and vice-versa. But we retain the authentic delicacies by changing the combinations,” says Sushil. He quickly adds that they are trying to give the best at a reasonable price. “There are quality checks conducted every day and preparing these dishes are very extensive,” Sushil says. The Maharaja Thaal is priced at Rs. 249 and the waiters are courteous and ready to fill your cups.

Once you are done with your meal, you will not get finger bowls, but the waiter will get a small bowl and water jug. He will pour water on your hands, and you can clean in the bowl, a real Maharaja treat. On week days, during lunch time, the place is full, as many small businessmen in the locality use this place to seal many deals. During nights and weekends, it is family time. There  are 72-80 people everyday at the restaurant.
