One of the oldest fine dining restaurants in the city, Kabab-E-Bahar is known for its Hyderabadi food and North Indian kababs. The restaurant at Taj Banjara, which is open only in the evenings, is located next to the lake and boasts of an open kitchen. The old lanterns and the stone flooring add to the ambience of the place. However, droves of mosquitoes in this otherwise idyllic location is a bit of a deterrent for the diners. Among the starters, the Hyderabadi 'Tala Hua Gosht' and 'Pathar Ke Gosht' cooked on a stone are dishes that they are known for. The vegetarian kababs are good too, especially the 'Kumbh Akhrot ki Tikki' and the corn dish 'Tilani Seekh'. For main courses, it is advisable to stick to the local 'Dum ki Nalli', 'Hyderabadi Keema Mutter' and 'Kachi Dum ke Biryani'. 'Safed Double ka Meetha' an interesting variant of the locally popular dessert is the delicacy to end the meal with.
