Authentic South Indian Food but pricey. High standard of food as in chennai maintained here. Would be perfect if price is more on mid range

This is a good veg south indian option. But it does not have the exact same taste as in Chennai. Ambiance and accessibility are good.

Wherever you are in the World, Saravana bhavan food variety or taste doesn't change. Good to see same taste outside India.

Very tasty and predictable Saravana Bhavan food. A must visit for vegetarians and particularly those prickly about their food being ONLY vegetarian and no egg, garlic etc.
