If one wants to savor real South Indian food in Delhi. Then this is the place to be! They are packed all the time and one has to wait a bit depending on the time of day one is visiting! It is a simple restaurant located at a very prime place Janpath and is a hit with foreigners too. Food... More

I went for a quick bite around lunch time. Had to wait for some 15-20 minutes as there was a long line. But when the food came it was hot, delicious and satisfying.

Typical south Indian food is speciality of Sarvana Bhavan. I love rasam idly and rava onion dosa from this restaurant. My family members love rasam vada and ghee roast dosa. In general it is a lovely place to eat good food with good service and very well priced.

The taste was authentic. The price is somewhat on the higher side. Overall, good food but a dirty place, specially the bathroom!

Their outfit at Connaughat Place is excellent. Sometimes you have to wait but it is worth it. I like their chutneys. Once we had a thali, which was not that great.

Options are many.. But mostly in south indian (Understandably). There is always a huge waiting outside but restaurant... More

Any items in this hotel have their best of taste and quality, I keep visiting with my family and friends very often. I only one dislike I have for this restaurant is one has to wait for a long to enter into which I do not know why management is not thinking opening additional restaurants in Delhi.
