“Hidden (Eden) Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

I've been to many fine restaurants and liked many of them. Each place has there uniqueness which is required to create an experience for their customers. Novotel Hyderbad gave an experince which was a discovery for myself. Their outdoor seating with live music, open lawns with greenery till far, a humungous live station with more than chioces and but ofcourse great staff. Looking for a peaceful meal with nice ambience The Square is the Hidden Garden one have to visit.

“One of its kind!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

My work have taken me away from Hyderabad for quite a long time and was back on my vacation. As we Hyderabadis crave for our local dishes, my friend has made areservation at Novotel Hyderbad coffee shop for some Indian Food festival. The buffet was having a list of dishes in all courses without losing their authenticity for any reason. We had to come thrice in the same week to enjoy such mouth watering food. Thanks to The Square for an experince which is One Of Its Kind!

“Wonderful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2012

Of the last 3 years I have eaten almost 1 year at The Square. So I can confirm that it is a very good restaurant. The service is excellent and the friendliest waiters. The cooks and chefs are great and have an exquisite taste in food preparation. There is something for every taste to eat. If not then the cook will prepare something you will like. Every now and then there are special weeks with different types of menus. I'm an european and I find it ridiculous that the local people are wasting food and drinks just to show that they have money. This restaurant deserves better than that and appreciate it. McDonalds is just around the corner if you can not. Wonderful place to have diner.

“Excellent Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

I stayed at Novotel Hotel for a month and a half and I ate at The Square often. I found the food there amazing and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I have food allergies and the chefs there were very accommodating. They lead me around the buffet and identified all the dishes that had my allergen in it. They even went above and beyond and made special substitute dishes for me. My husband also got a great experience at The Square; the master chef gave him a private cooking lesson in the outside gallery. I must commend the entire staff; they are professional, attentive and caring. They work together as a very good team and have an infectious positive attitude.

“Completely disagree with other reviewers”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

I stay here long-term for work and I would have to disagree with other reviewers. For the cost of the buffet there are other options out there with better food. The food at the buffet is often room temperature or cold. There is also inconsistency as to what is offered on a daily basis. I have found the buffet at other hotels in the area to be more enjoyable. You have to beg for any sort of service here and they often act like they are doing you a favor by taking your money.
