The restaurant in Jubilee Hills replicates a Bombay Irani Café in Hyderabad. The décor has a distinct touch of eccentricity to it, with a cuckoo clock and a toy train making its way through the ceiling. A board proclaims some hilarious dos and don’ts like “No feet on the chair” and “No combing hair”. The bar at a corner serves some very good cocktails including the 'Bombay Julep Rum'. The restaurant serves essentially 2 types of food. The Parsi and Bombay Street section has favourites like 'Chicken Farcha', “Bhendi Bazar Seekh Paratha” and 'Berry Pulao'. Vegetarian dishes of note are 'Aloo Aunty’s Vegetable Cutlet' and 'Raasta Sandwich'. Their Hyderabadi food is different from those available from the typical local hotels, the preparations are based on home recipes. The combo of 'Khatti Dal', 'Talahua Gosht with Rice' gives a peek into traditional Hyderabadi food. 'Lagan Nu Custard' is a dessert I love here.
To follow the remarkable journey of chain restaurants is surprisingly satisfying.

Originating from the markets of New Delhi, today SodaBottleOpenerWala has firmly established itself in every major cosmopolitan in India and has now set it’s sight towards second tier cities.

It has become a sought-after dining destination amongst families and foodie friends. They do home delivery too but its always better to come in.
