Yes, you’ve guessed it —AnTeRa Courtyard, nestled in Vattinagulapally beside Pradhan Conventions, has unveiled a new outpost, following its longstanding reputation as a culinary gem as a brand in Jubilee Hills and Gachibowli, renowned for its tantalising Telugu cuisine.

Stepping inside, we were instantly transported to a lavish and indulgent space reminiscent of a bygone era, evoking memories of grand courtyards adorned with lush greenery. The interior ambiance and menu have been meticulously crafted, keeping in mind the unique selling proposition of the new locale—a fusion of diverse taste palettes inspired by its cosmopolitan surroundings.

Our culinary exploration of Andhra, Telangana, & Rayalaseema cuisine commenced with popular starters like Kodi Chips, offering succulent and crispy bites with just the right amount of masala coating. The Coriander Chicken and Nalgonda Mutton Fry followed suit, both dishes tantalising the taste buds with their robust flavours. We then ventured into their fusion creations—Chicken Rice Cake and Gongura Mutton Taco—each offering a harmonious blend of traditional Indian flavours with global culinary influences. To complement our meal, we indulged in two refreshing drinks—the Chinna Sundari, a delightful concoction of fresh orange, basil leaves, and honey water, and the Sampradayani cocktail, featuring vodka, kaffir lime, pineapple, and peach.

Just as we were savouring the starters, we were treated to the Munnakaya Shorba (drumstick soup), a flavourful interlude paving the way for the main course. The Antera Special Kodi Pulav, crafted with succulent chicken pieces and fluffy masala rice, was a definite highlight of our dining experience. We concluded our culinary journey on a sweet note with the Fried Ice cream, undoubtedly one of the city’s finest renditions of this beloved dessert.
