When in Hyderabad, how can you miss visiting Capital restaurant which has been standing strong for years now in the Malakpet area near to TV Tower. It is a one-stop place for all meat lovers out there. Specializing in Indian, Mughlai, Chinese & Arabic, Capital Restaurant is split across two floors, wherein 1st floor has been kept for Chai lovers & 2nd floor is a huge area for dining is split across two large dining halls and a private dining room for semi-large groups. Coming to the food, Capital is having an elaborate menu for both vegetarians & non-veg lovers as well. Starting off with platters, we got Chinese platter, Mutton grill platter & Chicken grill platter. All of these platters are some of the popular picks from the menu & can easily suffice a semi-large group. Coming to taste there has been nothing to point out since they were exceptionally tasty except Mutton boti kebab which could have been cooked more owing to the chewy meat texture. Even the Arabian Platter consisting of fries, Fattoush, Muttabel, Hummous and Chicken Sahan, a perfect Mediterranean spread which makes it an absolute must from the appetizers section. Chicken Faham & Sikandari Raan was truly well-done dishes with apt amount of spice balance & masala content ozzed into the meat pieces, even the meat pieces in the Raan had slow-braised legs of lamb, seasoned with tandoori marinade finished in the oven. Coming to the showstopper dish among the spread, Dum Murgh Mussalam which had a whole chicken stuffed with eggs & slow-cooked in a rich almond/poppy seeds/yoghurt and saffron gravy making it a wonder creation from the menu to be paired up with Roti/Naan; a must recommended pick from the menu of Capital. Chicken 65 Biryani was up next from the mains which we felt could have been done better in terms of the spices used in biryani. To wind up, we had some of the authentic desserts like Double Ka meetha, Caramel Pudding, Kheer, Fruit Salad & Qubbani ka Kheer, all of these were just icing on the top after such a sumptuous meal. To sum up, if you are craving for some authentic Mughlai cuisine along with authentic Kebabs in Hyderabad in a well-thought menu, Capital Restaurant should be on your list which is a hidden gem standing strong for years now.
