We love it when we stumble across a vegetarian place while traveling, and when that place also happens to cater to artists, we get even more excited. While recently visiting Hyderabad, we conducted a review of The Gallery Cafe in Banjara Hills, which is one of the few venues in Hyderabad dedicated to offering budding artists a platform, whether it be to showcase music, photography and art or other talent forms such as stand-up comedy and poetry – to a certain extent it reminded us of The Project Cafe in Ahmedabad (which is a good thing).
The best dish we tried here is definitely the Spaghetti in Curry Sauce – we loved the idea of adding madras curry powder to spaghetti! It tasted flavourful and unique. The Tomato Basil Soup was decent, and the Corn & Spinach Focaccia Sandwich with fries on the side was filling.
The Funky Veggie Lover Pizza was average, compared to places which specialize in pizza, but if your group of friends are all having pizza cravings, you can consider ordering one to share, nonetheless. The quality of cheese was great, but we would have preferred a better base. The Hummus & Pita was also average – don’t expect an assorted variety of flavoured hummus dip options; it’s basic. Avoid the Stuffed Mushrooms, which are a bit on the dry side.
Definitely indulge in desserts here, for sure, and try out their interesting spread of teas and coffees, by either the cup or the pot! We loved the Affogato and Churros dipped in Hot Chocolate – sinfully divine!
If you are looking for a fun place to read and write out of or to have a fun conversation with friends or want to check out the latest budding artists in action, The Gallery Cafe is your go-to spot in Hyderabad.
The Gallery Cafe is located at 8-2-585/1/B, Road 10, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.
