It’s not just Famous ice-cream and Shadab biryani that rule the roost among Hyderabad’s culinary delights. The other twin, Secunderabad, too has its share of equally good food joints. Here’s a list of the must visit food joints in Secunderabad.The list begins with Paradise hotel. Biryani and Paradise are like synonyms. This restaurant has been around for over a few decades.

Next on the list is another biryani joint adjacent to the Clock Tower. Garden Restaurant serves mouth-watering biryani and has a wide array of non vegetarian dishes. Right from the butter chicken to the mutton kheema, everything tastes fantastic.
If you want to try quality Chinese food, then Nanking is where you should head. This restaurant serves Chinese cuisine in mild authentic flavours.We are a nation of tea lovers. If you are a fan of tea, Alpha Hotel that serves delicious tea priced at `6 and is a must visit. Apart from tea, Alpha serves some tasty non-vegetarian dishes such as chicken do pyaza at reasonable rates.
Another Chai specialist has given Alpha a tough competition in the same area. While Alpha Serves authentic Hyderabadi tea, Blue Sea is famous for its Irani chai. The tea here is creamy and the Osmania biscuits make it taste even better. A non-stop run of over 60 years tells its tales of success.
Apart from Paradise, there is another good biryani joint in Trimulgherry.
