Great place for authentic South Indian food
By rikusumita on 6/2/2013
I just got back from breakfast at Saravanaa Bhavan and I loved it. I was there around 10am and the place wasn't crowded, and the waiters were very responsive. Food was delicious ... madras coffee, dosa, idli and sambar ... all were excellent.
Love this place, despite it's flaws!

Firstly, I love this place. I'm a 21 year old college student, so my standards aren't that high, BUT! Great dirty south indian food! These dosas are made QUICK and have a nice greasy dirty taste. The place is packed, PACKED every night. The service is the worst I've ever seen but they're not rude or mean. Just clumsy and disorganized. Anyway, it can't ruin the delicious food at great cheap prices for me! 20 bucks and I've got two dishes and a pint :D.

If you dont want to be welcome go here.The waiters treat you as intruders in their gossips Even asking for water is sin.They charge you for extra Cuttney with Dosa or Idli which you have to ask because they serve so little It comes only after you have finished Dosa. To call Waiter again either go to the cash counter or shout.Terrible attitude and service If you can tolerate this go the the stuff is not bad but be prepared for being ignored and charged for small things and dirty floor--HCPant
