Absolute Sizzler serves a little bit of everything – from pizza and pasta to sandwiches and kebabs. However, as the name suggests, it is the sizzlers that are the main draw. While food trends have come and gone, Indian’s love for sizzlers has remained untarnished through the decades. There is something quite irresistible about the sight of hunks of meat slathered in sauce coupled with the theatre of the crackling sound and billowing smoke. Absolute Sizzlers boasts of an elaborate sizzler selection, including 9 vegetarian options. I picked the 'Absolute Laal Maans' that was billed as Chef’s special and the 'Tandoori Chicken Sizzler' that is one of the 3 Hyderabadi specials on the menu. Unfortunately, both turned out to be rather flawed dishes. The 'Laal Maans' tasted like makhni gravy with added tomato and red chilli powder, while the Tandoori Chicken was burnt and dry. Even the 'Murg Malai Kebab' had arrived under seasoned and burnt. There is a not-so-fine line between being charred and burnt, and the dishes from the tandoor at Absolute Sizzler fell in the latter category. While the service is polite and the ambience is perfectly serviceable for a casual dining, the food here needs a closer look.
