Relish This Season's Best Haleem From These 7 Iconic Restaurants & Order On Swiggy Too

    The Ramadan month is finally here and it brings along the promise of delicious haleem. With every street of Hyderabad displaying its love for this Nizami dish, more than 5,000 stalls are set up in the city. Sorting our evenings as well as midnight cravings, most of these stalls run from 4 pm to 4 am. But if you’re confused in choosing the right restaurant or Irani cafe to try out haleem, we’ve got some news for you. We’ve teamed up with Swiggy so you can order the best haleem of the season from a few iconic restaurants depending on your location. So, change into your PJs and order in some gooey goodness.

    Sarvi Restaurant

    If you conduct a haleem war in Hyderabad, Sarvi might just take the crown. Known for its Special Irani Haleem, foodies gather here to get their scoop of the dish. Come evenings, this restaurant is so crowded that it has arranged for their waiters to take orders right from your car. If you’re someone who cannot handle large gatherings or the waiting game, you can order from here or here, depending on your location. Don’t you forget to add a pot or two of Phirni while you check out!

    Pista House

    Satiating our haleem craving throughout the year and globally too, Pista House  – a restaurant that first opened in Tolichowki 20 years ago has spread its roots rapidly. But we’re raving all we can about its haleem. A plate of haleem is priced at INR 160 and is filling enough to keep you hunger-free for hours to come by. Love your haleem with generous dollops of ghee and crunchy cashews? Then Pista House’s haleem is what you should dig into.

    Order from any of their outlets at Nallakunta, Tolichowki, Nampally, Kondapur, Raidurgam, Nizampet & Pragathi Nagar or Banjara Hills.


    We’ve been crushing on Mehfil for its biryani, and now we found more reasons to stay hooked – we’re talking about its lip-smacking haleem. While the restaurant is open until 12 am, we recommend you order 6 pm onwards. If you’re interested in ending your meal on a sweet note, we think you must try the Kaddu Ki Kheer {a pudding made with bottle gourd} or Qubani Ka Meetha.

    You can order from any of their outlets at Manikonda, Himayath Nagar, Attapur, Madhapur or Nizampet & Pragathi Nagar.

    Shah Ghouse Hotel & Restaurant

    We cannot stop singing enough praises for Shah Ghouse’s haleem. Open till 1 am, it properly patches up your midnight craving by delivering haleem home. Whether you’re in the mood for authentic haleem or trying it out for the first time, we recommend you start with Shah Ghouse. Served with dollops of ghee on top and garnished with fried onions {crisp to the core}, cashew nuts, and a dash of lime, this is a perfect meal. We say – invite your squad and order the Mutton Haleem from here for those deep midnight conversations.

    You can order from here or here, depending on your location


    Parivaar Restaurant

    Secunderabad peeps, here’s a little awesomeness for you. If you’re from A.S.Rao Nagar or Sainikpuri and think you need to travel all across the city to find the best haleem, you’re wrong. Located in your neck of the woods is Parivaar, a Mughlai restaurant that whips some epic haleem. Order a plate of it tonight and ring a perfect ending to your Friday night. You’ll keep going back for more – we warn you.

    You can order from here.

    Paradise Biryani

    Paradise might be famous for its biryani, but it’s not one to be left behind when it comes to haleem. Every year, it conducts a Haleem Festival in all its outlets and the experience of eating here reminds you of an Irani cafe. But before you hit up one of its ever-crowded outlets, we recommend ordering in a plate of haleem along with Qubani Ka Meetha {a Hyderabadi sweet delicacy made from dried apricots, dry fruits etc.}.

    You can order from any of their outlets at Madhapur, Banjara Hills, Kukatpally, MadhapurBegumpet, Gachibowli, Himayath Nagar, Kothapet & Dilsukhnagar, Begumpet, Somajiguda & Khairatabad, Uppal, Madhapur, Nampally, Beeramguda, Madhapur.

    Lucky Restaurant

    Located in Santosh Nagar, Lucky Restaurant is yet another Irani restaurant that has been stealing the hearts of foodies with its specialties like Al Faham {Arabian grilled chicken}, Mutton Biryani etc. But this season, you cannot miss out on haleem from Lucky. Cooked to perfection, and garnished with chopped coriander, fried onions, and lemon, this is sure to send you into a delightful frenzy. Cannot find time to step out and eat it? Then you can Swiggy it from here.
