Rika gets its name from paprika. The modern Asian restaurant at Park Hyatt replaces Oriental Bar & Kitchen, the earlier Pan-Asian outlet of the hotel. As you enter the place, you cannot help but notice the oriental hand-pulled rickshaw right in front of the entrance. Two modern murals adorn the walls stretching up to the ceiling. The cocktail bar serves some interesting cocktails curated by mixologist Roxanne Read. The signature drinks have a dash of chillies in it and include 'Tea Time' a whisky-based cocktail with green chillies and orange bitters, and 'Roasted Red Velvet' a chilli-infused preparation with vodka. The restaurant boasts of the couple of live teppans dishing out gems like 'Sauteed Tiger Prawns in Yellow Curry'. The sushis here have become the talk-of-the-town in a short time. Apart from 'Hand-rolled Temaki' and 'Gunkans', the 'Salmon Sashimi' is a must-try for fish lovers. The mains to gorge on are 'Sichuan Chilli Chicken' and 'Slow Roasted Lamb Shanks.
If you ask a Bengali, what is your favorite cuisine apart from Bengali cuisine? I am sure he/she would point their fingers to the Chinese Menu. Asian food has been the most prefered international cuisine (a little to do with the influence of Indian Street Food) for Indian foodies. The made to order and easily available items on Chinese Menu makes it more popular. As per my sources, after Punjabi cuisine, Hyderabad is home for many restaurants serving Chinese cuisine. However, Asian food is beyond just Chinese.

His jovial and upbeat attitude adds to Rika’s experience. In his traditional accent, he assures, “The food I prepare at Rika is so innovative and unique that I promise, you’ll never find it anywhere else in the city”. What is most inspiring is the love & care with which he keeps rolling the sushi for us. His special chef platter was the highlight of our tasting session. The menu at Rika is exhaustive and a single visit won’t justify. The Sushi section stands out with the varieties ranging from Nigiri and Maki to the trendy Temaki (hand-rolled sushi cones) and classic inari age (deep fried tofu pockets). Almost 50 plus varieties makes it among the largest sushi bar in Hyderabad and a sushi lovers paradise. Roxanne plays a Mix and Match The magic of Rika is off course lies in the hands of it’s star bartender Roxanne. She spins out some explicit cocktails. She works closely with the chef to churn out some perfect pair with the food. She uses some great ingredients to get the flavours in the cocktails. Her unique chilli-infused cocktails are the thing to watch out for. The best part is that her drink will never burn your palate and yet quench your thirst. Infact, my fellow blogger Paromita, who is almost teetotaller appreciated her Vodka cocktail. She loved to call herself the #MistressofMixology and we are happy to confer her that title. In just less than a year, Roxanne earns herself the Mixologist of the Year in the Times Food & Nightlife Awards 2019, Hyderabad Edition.

The General Manager of Park Hyatt, Hyderabad Mr Thomas suggested this happening Pan Asian Resturant in their property - Rika. At the entrance we were received by Ms Reetika and seated us at our appointed and pre-reserved Teppanyaki table with a personal live counter for the Chef to prepare a dishes of our choice with their regular briefings and our inputs. The restaurant had one more such table apart from other couple, family and small group sittings. Chef Myo briefed us about the Pan Asian cuisine on offer and started with Edamame Dumpling. He was aware of our sensitivities in terms of being strict vegetarian. We than started off with sweet corn soup and Teppanyaki veggies. Chef Kunal took over and started preparing the Teppanyaki dishes - noodles, kaki-a-age and silken tofu. My wife was delighted to see him dole out these dishes, learnt few new tricks and also gave her inputs of our preferences while the same was being prepared right before us. It was a wow experience and suggest it to anyone looking for pan Asian cuisine. Needless to say we signed off with a dessert - the yummy Yuzu Lime Cheese cake.
We ate here on Dec 27th evening after arriving from a long flight. I was with my Husband who is White American and I myself am Indian American. I ordered for both of us but before I did the waiter did not even acknowledge my presence and would only address my husband. So he was surprised that I had the audacity to order for both of us, I initially got angry but brushed it off as a cultural thing and he's just catering to the White guy. Once he walked away he returned in a min and went straight to my husband and asked him if he would like to add any meat to the order since I just ordered vegetarian items. We both were surprised by this and confused. Was he shocked my husband didnt order and I did for both of us? Whatever it was for a hotel that wants to be of a certain standard this is not okay behavior from the staff.
Fancy some sushi? Or may be some Bao? Or just some chicken popcorn? Look no further, simply visit Rika. A newly and very tastefully decored restaurant in the Park Hyatt Hyderabad. Every dish we had was a classic masterpiece by itself. Get a taste of all possible south Asian flavors right under one roof. I am also very impressed with their attention to providing Hyderabadis what they love best....chillies! This restaurant offers chillies from all over the world. Atleast 15 types are right on display with many there for you to taste as well. Its just an experience one should not miss. And ofcourse it has a well stocked bar as well to give you just the perfect dining experience one looks for. Outstanding food, superb service and superlative ambience give this restaurant an aura of class. So without further ado, book your table for a gourmet tour of some superlative south asian cuisine at Rika. And yes I must mention that though it came from the Italian restaurant but according to me Park Hyatt Hyderabad serves the worlds best Tiramisu! Kudos to the chef!! Keep it up guys. You make me come back again and again for more!!!
The sushi was ok ok, not the best I travel often to japan so I know very well Japanese food this is not like around Asia but is ok, but the service ohhh very very slow is like they not care about costumers...
