Very costly, bad food. Rs 55 one roti, very small. The quality is very bad, and price very high. No item was good.

I hardly give poor reviews but this one must come through, the upstairs hall with an extremely high priced menu materialises into very small portions after a long time. For a veg place that is slow service. The Malai Kofta promised to be made of Cheese and Nuts in a cashew gravy was a ball of potato with candied fruit... More

There's a whole chain of Hotel Saravana Bhavan around Chennai (28). They offer good, inexpensive, South Indian vegetarian food, either in the cheaper tiffin hall, or the little more expensive ( but worth it) A/C dining area. The HSV in T.Nagar, Pondy Bazaar, is excellent, especially for Thali lunches (from about 12:00pm). The speciality restaurant, Rangoli, serving Gujarati and Rajastani... More

Saravana Bhavan restaurants all over Chennai are extremely popular.Hence tend to get crowded. Try to be in the restaurant before 12 noon for lunch & before 7 or 7 .30pm for dinner. Their Mini Lunch is the ideal thing for a working lunch. You get a chappathi its curry,a little pulav, rice ,curd, curries ,sweet dish everything. This is the... More

The Saravana Bhavan's is mostly likely one of local food places to visit in Chennai one finds after browsing. Going once to satisfy the googling efforts and preparing the to to do list is just enough.

If you are a person who is only used to eating home food and is always afraid to try outside food, you can surely have food at this hotel. Taste is always best. Quite priced high, but worth the taste. Best for lunch time. Varieties of options like meals, executive lunch, special meals are available.

I had lunch and tiffin a few times at the restaurant in Mylapore in the last few weeks. The food is quite good although the portions in the thali were pretty small. Service and ambience leaves a lot to be desired though. The wait staff spend more time chatting than attending to customers. The cleaning staff are in great haste... More
