A popular place to savour biryani and Haleem, Pista House is always crowded with people who come from all across the city to experience something heavenly, especially during the month of Ramazan. There are only few places in the twin city that come to the mind, Pista House being one of them when it comes to biryani and Haleem. You can try Bhagra Baigan, Dum ka Chicken, Kaddu ke Kheer and Khubani ka Meetha. Apart from Haleem, its fruit cakes and biscuits are also popular. Pista House is a bakery, a sweet shop and also a restaurant.

Their Haleem is to die for.....traveled from posh Banjara greens to the old city...Charminar especially for Haleem. Its mostly available during the auspicious month of Ramzan.
So Pista house wasn't anything like i expected....you had to stand outside and order a waiter to get you Haleem...one plate is for Rs.80/- and a family pack is for Rs.350/-
When mine came...i must say it was like nothing i've had before...served is plastic take away jars...with a spoon and a slice of lemon. It was mutton most tenderly cooked with wheat being the other ingredient. Consistency was like a paste or custard and its absolutely delicious. non spicey..not hot..it was mild and it was....just perfect. Of course its made in 100% pure ghee so you may not be left with anymore appetite and it can be a meal in itself. Ended my dinner with a pista phirni from the same hotel and must say it was extremely well made...not very sweet and was served chilled!
Fantastic time to be in Hyderabad if you are a foodie! never miss a Haleem..
