Haldi offers the ultimate fine-dining experience, be it the polished, unhurried service, the elegant minimalist interiors, with the open interactive kitchen adding warmth, and an innovatively chalked out menu, with a focus on Indian tweaked to suit global palates. How about starting off with shooters of Simla Mirch ka Panna, Pista Badam Thandai or Masala Nariyal Paani? For starters, there are the delectable melt-in-the-mouth Dahi Anjeer Kebabs, Lamb Shikampuri, Chutneywale Jhinge, Bharwan Tangdi Kebab, And if you want these kebabs steamed, that's also an option. If you want to steer clear of kebabs there are a host of other munchies, like the Pepper mathris with the very innovative Pineapple Chutney, or Papad Cones. For main courses, try the Methi Murgh or even that Andhra delight, the tangy Raw Mango Lamb Vepudu. For fish lovers, Macchli Dilkhus is good and vegetarians may try Tawa Subzi and the Dal Makhni. Ideal accompaniments being the Baby Olives Naan or even the Chironji Pulao or even a host of biryanis, but not of the greasy, spicy variety. For desserts, there are more globally-tweaked Indian delicacies, for instance Fennel (Saunf) Root Ice Cream or how about Watermelon or even Tamarind Kulfi?

What sets apart The Square at Novotel Shamshabad from the one at Madhapur is space. The former is far more spacious and boasts of a larger buffet spread. It has the typical modern ambience of an all-day dining restaurant, steel and glass, with a couple of paintings to break the decor, and in common with its Madhapur cousin, its well-frequented by the expat community. Service is genteel, in an unhurried and unobtrusive fashion. Apart from the huge variety of salads, main courses and desserts, there are at least three to four live stations, alternating between Continental, (Italian pastas and pizzas), Oriental (noodle bar, dimsums, yakitori, sushi, teppanyaki, Mongolian grills, Burmese Khowsuey etc), Indian (tandoors, kebabs, kheema pavs and the like), Paninis and buns stations etc, Mexican (fajitas, enchiladas and live churro stations). Some days, they also do fresh steaks and stews, with a host of sauces and dressings options. Expect the unexpected here, such as Sugarcane Chicken, no it isn't sweet, just chicken mince skewered on sugarcane sticks or the corn and coriander muffins. Or even the Bunny Chow, a South African bread delicacy stuffed with various meats and spices. In the desserts section, you will find nuggets like Ajwain and Champagne Sorbet, Smoked goat cheese ice cream, Green Tea Cheese Cake and Fennel (saunf) Root Ice Cream. And if its your lucky day, do tuck into the Winey Apples in Pistachio Sable, you will reach salvation!
