Haleem At Hotel Shah Ghouse – The Best So Far

27 Sep

The Haleem at Hotel Shah Ghouse takes the top honours for this year. This time my inquiries about any new and good places serving haleem in the old city had only one answer—Hotel Shah Ghouse. Not to ignore my friends advice who already tasted the haleem (more of an instruction) we, a group of four headed to Hotel Shah Ghouse.  We did have a tough time wading through the traffic to reach Hotel Shah Ghouse. The hotel is situated on the road from Charminar to Barkas.  One can find the hotel (around 250 metres from Pista House’s main outlet) on the right hand side of the road from Charminar to Barkas.

We placed our order as soon as we reached Hotel Shah Ghouse. The first thing I noticed after getting the haleem was that it was very hot. This was the perfect serving of haleem I had so far this year. Spicy, Piping hot, tasty, the right consistency, the right quantity of ghee and spices used, and a taste that was the best. Anything hot and spicy and Hyderabadi’s love it. The haleem is worth the price at Rs. 55 per plate.

After devouring the haleem at Hotel Shah Ghouse we headed to the main outlet of Pista House to get a plate of vegetarian haleem. Unfortunately, the vegetarain variety was over by the time we reached Pista House. Not to be dissappointed we ordered a plate of the regular haleem that was served with loads of ghee in it. The taste was almost the same as that of the parcel we ordered from its outlet in Babu Khan Mall.

A cup of chai in a Irani cafe near Charminar ended the trip for us.

Recommendation: Must have. Do not miss it.

    I went there again today, wasn’t as good as that day. The meat looked uncooked. The spices and all were in place though.

    Agreed Shah Gouse in old city is the best so far. But if you want to try a different type of Haleem in Secunderabad then you should try Bombay Hotel at Ranigunj in Secunderabad. You will be surprised at what you get. The original Grand ma’s Haleem, a perfect home made stuff. Should’nt miss it.

    On a different note try Mashad Haleem at City Light Hotel at RP Road in Secunderabad. They say it is for the first time it is available in Hyderabad. Though it is a bit expensive. Rs 80/- for a single plate, but it is worth it, full of dry fruits and topped with cream. By the way Mashad is a place in Iran.

    Thank you Powerbiz. I in fact wanted to try the haleem at Bombay Hotel last time but could not do so. I will try that as well as the Mashad Haleem this time.

    man wat a haleem does it provide with full of spicy ingredients wich taste sour & a burning sensation starts in the throat after having more than 2-3 spoons…i dont like it as it is just waste of money as i could not evn eat a complete bowl of it.bad bad.

    what a delicious haleem at shah Ghouse, it was perfect and delicious. Shah Ghouse haleem was only the competitor of Pista House haleem. Both are same but the taste is rich in pista house haleem. Its full of ghee and other pure meet haleem. Both are perfect.

    tried haleem this year @ shah ghouse but it was so spicy that could not evn eat half of its bowl and as evn sum strange smell was coming frm that haleem,,none of us liked it as shah ghouse also mix beef in their haleem …
    so bad to that place as they cheat people by telling 100% goat meat haleem….
    only trusted places in hyderabad is PISTA HOUSE & PARADISE(secbd) who dont mix beef as they are a very good brands of hyderabad….
