Went to Bezawada a while ago. The restaurant is one of the better reviewed ones with fresher decor. Went for lunch. Everything in the thali was ok to adequate but nothing wow’ed. Pricier than average, because of the nicer decor.
Has anyone been? I’d like to go back to try some of the coastal Andhra dishes, which I am not familiar with. What are the coastal Andhra specialties that people like (here, or in general)? How are the biryanis?
Checked in at Yelp to get a free mango lassi, which was very sweet.
There was a big crowd during late lunch. Get in line at Yelp to eliminate unnecessary waiting.
We often go to Bazawada in Mipitas . For the Weekend Bhojanam (thali). We find the dishes really well done and not toned down at all. Not too oily or salty. I would think that the Biryani that is on the Thali would give a pretty good idea of what a whole order would taste like. They dio a great Buttermilk, never had the Lassie there but they always taste too sweet to me.
The one thing that I thought I might have done wrong is to pick the thali with meat options, and I suspected the better options would be to go vegetarian. For the weekend bhojanam, do you know its difference vs the weekday thali? Do you usually get the vegetarian or the meat option?
I don’t recall much about the rice in the middle. Its not a biryani but relative plain rice.
Actually I find that if a place does Non Veg they are usually better at Non Veg than Veg.
Judging from your Photo it doesn’t look like there is a difference between the Weekday and Weekend.
Is the Weekday all you can eat? Buttermilk is gratis as well, not sure if you can sub a Lassie. They also bring Sambahr and Rasam in separate containers after your Thali is served.
I get the Meat and S.O. gets the Veg.
On the Weekend the darker Rice in center seems like an Andhra Style Veg Biryani to me. It is not Andhra Tamarind Rice(Pulihora) which does not usually have Vegetables in it and does have Peanuts. May just be a Veg Pulao but not plain at all, highly spiced.
I have not ordered off the regular Menu. I see quite a few folks getting the Ragi (Millet) Combos.
Nothing new really. I have always liked Anjappar Chettinad. It gets some hate for “bad service” and “too spicy” but I like the Chilies and never had a problem with service.
I had a couple of good meals at Red Chilis stuck to the Keralan Dishes.
We have been frequenting Ugadi in Sunnyvale of late.
I do not know anything about Milan but the Menu is all over the Board. Punjab, Goa, Andhra , Rajasthan Ect… Puts me off.
We always get the Thali. I think I got the Tiffin Lunch once. It is very much a Family run Restaurant. Service can be stunningly poor sometimes but they are very sweet so it is hard to be mad at them. They just get a little out of their depth sometimes.
The food is almost always good and very homey. Not very super spicy like Bezawada and Anjappar but still good. We did have one meal there that disappointed but it was only one.
