Good but not great

Sagar's is good for two reasons: it's all veggie and it's really quite cheap. Perhaps we ordered the wrong stuff, but we found that the curry, however, was nice but not 'wow'... It's a nice place for a good meal, but don't expect excellence. Service was a bit 'grunty' but warmed up to us... read more

I visited on Saturday night with my parents for a meal here. Was shown to a table pretty much straight away even though we turned up 15 minutes early (we did have a reservation) Service was quick and attentive, and our waiter was very nice and helpful with any questions we had with food on the menu. He gave us... More

Been to London many times. Being strict vegan - always looking for best dining opportunities. WELL - this time I have definitely found it. SAGAR is the answer for all vegan bros around. Take my word for it!!

Since returning from travelling in India over two years ago, I've been on the hunt to find the best dosa in London. The Mysore Masala Dosa was the best I've had outside of India. Absolutely delicious. A lot of people may be put off by the fact that this is an vegetarian restaurant - don't be, Indian food is delicious... More

I visited Sagar Restaurant on Saturday with family, though it was busy the service was friendly and fast. The food was really awesome with so many options to choose from. The menu has something for everyone even vegan. Authentic South indian dishes....really loved it. Will definitely visit again soon..

We hot a takeaway from this restaurant yesterday evening. Tasteless sambar, rotten coconut chutney and the vegetable kurma that smelled like LPG gas. Avoid this place or kill both your money and appetite.

Have been coming to this restaurant for many years - first in Hammersmith and later in Covent Garden. The food was always exceptional. Visited on Saturday night with two pals and I can only describe the experience as a massive disappointment. Bland and tasteless Potato Bonda and Pani Puri (this used to be my favourite starter), underspiced Rava Masala dosa,... More

The masala dosa was tasty as I've had and at about 6 to 8 GBP good value. The Sagar Thali was so-so, small portions, the paratha oily, overpriced. Crowded, noisy. Will not return.

The Sagar thali offers a tantalising mixture of flavours and textures. Service was attentive. Good place for a reasonably priced supper out in Covent Garden.

The food is amazing, the service friendly and the prices reasonable. Went there for lunch twice within a year and the food was wonderful both times. Especially vegetarian thali is often a bit bland and the dishes are very similar in taste and texture. Not this one. The thali was excellent and offered a great selection of flavours, same with...

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
