I had food at Saravan Bhavan at the KLCC Suria mall last week. No matter what part of the world you are in, Saravana serves the same, tasty thali meal - incredibly tasty, huge value for money, and express quick service. Extra ordinary that they can keep the same quality in every part of the world. Really good service as... More

We were staying across the road from this restaurant for 4 months and ate here many, many times. This was our favourite place for a good, quick feed. The menu selection is full of delicious options. Compared to other nearby options, this is a little pricier, but well worth it!!! Can get very busy and noisy but this creates a... More

Great menu with lots of choices (South India, North India, Chinese Etc..). I tried the one at Brickfields as well as in Masjid India. I liked the second one. When I ordered for Poori, the waiter has recommended the Day's special dish Pongal to me. I went for it. It was delicious along with Vada. Then had plain dosa. Above... More

Nice restaurant with most of north/South Indian dishes. Good taste and reasonably priced. Enough seating space. Negatives Just next to a Non veg restaurant, might get non veg food smell.

We were staying in a hotel near KL Sentral in downtown Kuala Lumpur. Indian restaurants are as plentiful as saris in Bombay. So, how to choose a good one? Well, we asked a few Indians on the street and two GLOWINGLY mentioned and recommended Saravanna Bhavan. They did caution that it was vegetarian only. Not a problem for us so... More

They failed to live up to the standards of other Indian restaurants in KL with the same pricing. Tasted like an ordinary 'mamak' or just any other indian stall by the roadside :( GOTTA DO SUMTIN'!

The thali meals provided in the hotel are not worth the money but other items are worth a try, especially those like dosa and naan.
