Hyderabad was the royal city of Andhra Pradesh, one of the Mogul capitals of India. Hyderabad Inn in West Footscray bring a little of that regal tradition to the streets of Melbourne, right along Barkley Street. Of course, Barkley Street is home to plenty of Indian restaurants, but few can offer the authentic tastes of Hyderabad like the Hyderabad Inn. They offer up all your Indian favourites – samosas, pakoras, chaats and tandoori specialties to start, followed by the classic curries we all know and love – but their strength is in their regional specialities, particularly the Hyderabadi biryani, featuring lamb or chicken cooked slowly with spices, yoghurt and rice in a pot sealed with dough to keep the whole flavour together. Take a trip to West Footscray – West Footscray station, of course – and remember to book your table ahead of time.
