The Sagar ratna at Sec.8, Panchkula is a cool place. His combos are helpful. Dossas are crisp, Idlis are fluffy, sambhar is good, Chutneys are good. Dahiwadas are good but can be eaten as a substitute to Dessert, so sweet is the dahi. It has a large variety of Dossas, Idlis and other southy fare. Taste is good but prices... More

there was a time, i was a die hard fan of this chain. they introduced me with so many south indian delicacies and i always chose to eat here. But hey, that was a golden past. Now, it is just another place with nothing special. Rather, the quality, quantity, presentation of food and service have fallen down to average. Look... More

Tasty and authentic South Indian cuisine that took us back to out previous sweltering days underneath the palm trees. We had a thali and a dosa and left really full paying the least we paid in Chandigarh.

As usual, Sagar Ratna lived up to its reputation of excellent South Indian fare. Expensive by South India standards but you feel you have your money's worth.

The food here is as authentic as it can get on Chandigarh :) The filter coffee is great. All the South Indian varieties are delicious also the North Indian dishes looked good but we stick to the South Indian. The rava kesari is a must must try ... Delicious This place is gng to be our favorite for a while

But better than any other option.....Restaurant renamed. Shree Ratnam...maybe different ownership. Dahi vada is worth ordering (share it...its sweet!!) Heavy food....see a lot of people ordering Chola Bhaturas....looked like a popular order.... After many visits, the coconut chutney was about authentic....

I have been living in south India for many years now; food taste is different at Sagar Ratna; compared to south India. The price charged is five to seven times what you pay in south India; but not that taste; right from humble masala dosa to rava onion masala dosa; taste is different, spices used are different, quality too is...

If you have eaten South Indian at the various Udipi joints in Mumbai than Sagar Ratna is a big let down ! The food is not that great and the idea of having Rajma Chawal in the menu at a South Indian joint is a big turn off !

Simple interior, but you should go there for the food. One of the best South Indian food I have had. The interior is raw, the food is served in metal plates,and as on almost all genuine Indian restaurant, only pepsi, water and tea is served to drink. The service was good, strict and no extras - you got what you... More
