Nice and clean

We went here for a dinner as a family. This place is nice for an evening meal with your family. This is a nice and clean restaurant with friendly staff. I haven't commented on food as their standard is the same all over the world, which is very good.

If you like Indian food, this is a nice choice for you. Famous for its South Indian fare, the restaurant offers other choices as well. It is very popular, as seen from the number of people who were eating there. The service is quick, especially if you order dosas. The place is neat and clean, and you are likely to... More

Speciality of Saravana Bhavan is its excellent varieties of South Indian food at a very cheaper price. I have been to Saravana Bhavan in USA, UK, France, India and Singapore - like McDonalds famous for its same kind of taste, you will most feel the same food quality and taste in all Saravana Bhavan locations. Drawback or negative is the... More

I took my wife and 3 year old daughter to this restaurant in Ilford because it was recommended by a colleague. Firstly and most importantly 90% of the menu contains nuts. Please be aware of this. secondly the food really isnt as good as some of the reviewers and neither is the service. Makes me wonder how genuine these reviews... More

I go to both the E.Ham and Wembley branches often, once a month or more. Both are very good and keep their standards up. Try anything South Indian here. Idli, dosas, oothaappams, vadais, curd rice, sambhar rice, the "business meal", are all great bets.

Took my family there for a lunch and felt that it was not really a bad meal. For me, the disappointment is that is a veg. restaurant and even the veg is not really great but not too bad either. Need to improve.

I was impressed. The food was scrumptious "dosa". Out waiter... More
