Review: Hyatt Hyderabad Gachibowli is hosting Sunday Picnic Brunch under the sky
Making the most of the mellow sunshine and the cheerful outdoors this winter, Hyatt Hyderabad Gachibowli has moved it’s Family Festive Sunday Brunch on to its lawns. Going by the shrieks of delights from the little ones near the portable slides next to the finger food section (Cheese poppers, French Fries and Mini Kathi rolls), the selfies at the live counters (from Appam-stew to Ravioli and Fettuccini) and the buzz at the dessert section, it appears that the guests seem to love the idea of picnicking in the greens while relishing world flavours, signature brews and regional favourites.
Roshan Rajpal, the new General Manager who joined the hotel a month ago, says, “It’s a crime to let go of such an amazing weather and garden without celebrating it. That’s why we decided to highlight the outdoor element. We are going to have this the whole of December, and later too, if the weather permits.
The menu is elaborate with different tables for each course. The salad counters with six kinds of mayo (Wasabi, Paprika, Pesto, Sumac etc) caught everyone’s attention. I love coconut milk in dishes and hence gravitated towards the Khow Suey (a Burmese noodle dish with spiced coconut milk sauce). “We have many international guests staying with us and the Mongolian counter is also a hit with them,” says Roshan.
To add to the Sunday vibe, the hotel also has a display and sale of works by local artists Hari and Anitha besides an outlet of handmade greeting cards by hearing-impaired children from Ashray Akruti NGO. There is also a tile-painting zone where guests can try out their hand at painting. That the hotel has a good patch of greenery amidst the concrete jungle of Gachibowli is also why an outdoor brunch is appealing.
With kids as their main patrons, Hyatt also has an elaborate dessert counter and interestingly, the majority of the desserts are also non-messy kinds. My favourite was the cake pop that looked like a lollipop and tasted divine. It was also popular with the kids as they could go to enjoy the slam-dunk zone while relishing the dessert. Come X’Mas, the tree and the decor is all going to add to the Yuletide spirit. “Festive is the word this season and that is what we want our guests to experience, every Sunday of the month,” adds Roshan.
Starts at Rs.1,699. Noon to 3.30 pm.
