Good regional cuisine with long waiting lines

We have visited Saravana Bhavan quite a number of times for the South Indian food. On our recent most visit, we found the place has been expanded and given better interiors. The food has always been good. However, the service is always a bit of a let down, making us feel we are in a fast... read more

I have been to this place several times now. The only problem here is getting in on a weekend. It usually takes 45minutes to 1 hour if you reach there post 8 pm. It is sure madness out there just to get a table. I would recommend going on a weekday. Food: It is good south indian food.But dosas have... More

You may have to wait a bit to get the seat and then a little further for the food to arrive, but very good and authentic south indian food. Far better than Saravana Bhavan restaurants in South India.

The restaurant offers excellent South Indian meal. We do enjoy the variety of Dosa served in the restaurant. The quality of the food is excellent. We enjoy their Vada as well.

How this place came so warmly recommended and so highly ranked is beyond me. I had some amazing meals in Delhi and this was not one of them. Seems like a normal cafeteria type restaurant, loud and noisy, iffy cleanliness and quick food delivery. The food was not bad but lacked the punch and strong flavors compared to some of... More

The food we ordered, was the normal veg. dishes, and to our ratings. the same was average , service was ok, prices mid range. Exceptionally... More

Good food, quick service, decent portions, reasonably priced, clean washroom... what else does one want? It is not a fine dining type, but exceeds expectations on many fronts. If one is traveling, its ideal to have dinner here, use washroom and then board train at night from New Delhi station... Filter coffee is amazing... must try! Parking at connaught place... More
