Food was good but not great.

As usual the food was good. But feel the New Delhi ones are better. This one was very crowded and may be staff was too busy.

We had lunch in this hotel. Really excellent traditional south indian vegetarian hotel. We have ordered south indian thali, really it comprises number of varieties like sweet, fry, curd, rasam, sambar and so many. One can have good food. Restaurant maintained very neatly. But it is very crowdy in peak times.

I like saravana bhavan and their catering style. I used to eat here at-least twice a week when i was living in Chennai which was 3 years back.

Rasam & Idli are my favorite and one must try to get a taste of authentic south Indian delicacy. The service is fast, so if one is looking for quick bite. This is a place to go. Do not forget to have a coffee after the meal.

Whenver in Chennai, make a stop-over at Saravana Bhavan for lunch/dinner. Its quality is maintained across its branches, having visited across the world. Visited this place recently and though food is great as usual, cleanliness needs to be improved. Service is excellent and being centrally located, there is always a crowd, better to go in early.

Brand chain of restaurants has itself created a brand niche among people and yes it survives according to the brand image. Provides the autentic south indian food that tastes very good. though little bit expensive, try out the Tamil nadu meals.

Excellent quality vegetarian food at affordable prices. Great variety of dishes and appetising. Lacks ambience though. Recommended for regular visits though not for special occasions.
