Expect treatment befitting a Qutb king at this rooftop restaurant in the Banjara Hills, a suburb west of Hyderabad en route to Golconda. Enjoy fabulous margaritas, lily ponds, candlelit tables and dal zafraan – a rich tempered lentil dish with saffron that many contend is the subcontinent’s finest. Best of all, though, are the views across Hyderabad and, on a clear day, as far as Golconda Fort.
