Nice

A quality eatery within the theatre complex is good. Quality of the food is not what used to be earlier at this dine. Quantity reduced while raising the price of the dishes. Yet, good to dine here.

Saravana Bhavan offers you delicious south indian cuisine along with all the fusions that it has to offer to get the youth a taste traditional foods. U have to try the filter coffee which is divine... also u can add it up with the combo meals that they have to offer.
