NEST is the all-day dining restaurant of HoJo and caters to in-house guests as well as walk-ins with buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You may find the food a bit repetitive if you are staying at the hotel, but otherwise, I like the spread because it is not extensive, yet touches all the right bases. If you are opting for the a la carte, here are some choices you can look at. In the salads, the 'Hummus and Pita' is good, as is the 'Rustic Mediterranean Salad with Feta and Lime Dressing'. The Soups section has the 'Creamy Broccoli', 'Corn Soup', the 'Italian Minestrone' is light and well flavoured and the 'Hyderabadi Shorba' is a peppery delight. The 'Banana Leaf Wraps in options of Paneer, Chicken and Fish' are good choices. The 'Khumb Galouti' is an interesting take on the original to try. The 'Sriracha Buffalo Wings' is a great choice with some chilled beers. For your mains, choose from the Indian, Asian and International options that are available. The 'Dhabe Ka Palak', 'Bhindi Sabki Pasand' and 'Khur Khuri' are great. I loved the 'Dal Rishiwali' for its tempering with garlic and chilli done in butter. This is one of the few places I have seen that does a 'Tawa Masala' in vegetarian, meat and chicken options. They do a nice 'Nasi Goreng', 'Stuffed Chicken Breast' and 'Thai Curries'. Desserts are well-known ones – the 'Salted Caramel Pannacotta' is a nice one.
It is the trend of all-day dining restaurants to give exactly what the patron wants, be it a world class menu or a quiet non-fussy background. Here a diner finds precisely what he is looking for as there is something for everyone. The beauty of all-day dining establishments doesn’t end here, you have to consider their round the clock timings, which lets you be entertained no matter what the time is.

NEST is designed in a very classy and tasteful manner. Crystal chandeliers, gleaming polished wooden tables, fine crystal ware and chic furnishings, all make up NEST. This place is perfect for families as well as corporates but it’s better if you go someplace else if you are looking for a more kid-friendly environment. NEST is not cheap by anyone’s standards but you will find it to be a little towards the expensive side.
