The Scrumptious Sunday Brunch at Okra, Marriott

Sunday Brunches have become an integral part of the food scene in Hyderabad. Many of my friends are avowed fans of the Sunday afternoon spreads at various hotels, and they visit a different one of them every week. Some others are loyal to particular hotels. Whereas for the residents of Banjara Hills and Hitech city there are many options to choose from, Hyderabad Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre near Hussain Sagar is the only place offering a gourmet fine dining experience close to the older parts of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. For this reason, the hotel boasts of many loyal diners especially from this part of the city.

Odia Bhoji: Finally a food festival from Odisha at The Park, Hyderabad
