After hearing that local search for guruji.com is up, I went ahead and searched for the best way to define Hyderabad local search – dum ka biryani.
Dum ka biryani gives me 0 results. Points for not giving me even one place with a dum ka biryani offering. -1/10
Duma ka biryani hyderabad gives me 0 results. Points for not giving me even one place with a dum ka offering when I even specified the place. -3/10
Biryani gives me results from places like chennai and coimbatore where any self respecting biryani afficionado will never have a biryani. Points for offering me the search results but not with the correctness. 4/10
Biryani Hyderabad returns me results from highly remote biryani centres which I see are basically biryani take home points and are never a match to the best & better biryani places which are not on the list Bahaar, Bawarchi, Paradise (which btw sux big time now!). When the big three are missing from the search list the list needs to be revamped. Points awarded for giving me a new take home biryani center near my house but not the ones that have been there since ages and are serve much better food. 2/10
My opinion is that there is still a lot left to be done in the local search site. The feedback option is very good. I however would have preferred if the site was still said to be in ‘Beta’. The list results I got are highly chaotic are no way in connected to the real world preferences or needs of a Hyderabadi biryani afficionado.
