I've heard of Saravana Bhavan for several years now, as the best place for South Indian dishes. Having had my fair share of South Indian Cuisine, I dare say, hands down, this is the best so far. I just had to try and have as much as I could during the first visit, so I tried their Ghee Roast, Uppum... More

Have been to several of the HSB branches over the years. Have always enjoyed their food, as well as appreciated their stance when it came to cleanliness, efficiency and service. But I notice a slow subtle decline in their standards over the last year or two and this was even more apparent last weekend.

I visited Hotel Saravana Bhavan at 239, Peters Road, Chennai 600086. To cut a long story short, they have terrible food, service and appalling levels of cleanliness. We went there for lunch as a family and ordered meals. They served a soup as a starter (as part of the meals), the soup had a cockroach in it (please see the... More

Rajasthani style food is well served here. The thali is the best. It has a long list of menu and purely vegetarian. gives an authentic Aura of the style of the food that is served. Good to visit

We have been dining in various saravana bhavans for many years..i visited this place after about 3 years and it has lost all its charm, taste as well as the customer service which they were famous for..food is served in plastic plates which itself is a major drawback and there is no taste to the food...overall avoidable..
