This is best place to hangout if you have to squeeze a friend's purse for treat. Food is good. Crowd is high.

Variety of dishes, mouth watering sweets, finger licking delicious tasty food items.... Try their paneer biryani, paneer tikka masala, kadai veg, ghee dosa etc... soooooooo yummy. Though faluda is not that good here. Children play area is available. A little has to be improved on service front.

I was at the new restaurant opened recently at the corner of Ranganathan Street in T Nagar. This is a new outlet and was a self service outlet. It had the usual simple setup and ambiance of saravana restaurants. In addition, for the first time, I saw combos being offered in this outlet. I chose one of the combos with... More

I started traveling frequently to Chennai with my family (wife and twin boys) since February 2013 (once every four months) and I can't think of a single visit to the city so far when we have not had at least one meal at Hotel Saravana Bhavan! From North Indian specialties to Chinese to South Indian meals to snacks to sweets... More

Great vegetarian food, al day long. Their sakkarai ponggal is to die for. Had breakfast almost everyday here. Affordable, clean, fresh and they have play area for kids too.

Six of us had been to Rangoli for dinner. The food is excellent on all the fronts (taste, presentation and value). The ambiance is quite pleasant. We were surprised to find food being served on silver cutlery. It was a very good experience and a must visit restaurant for people looking to eat authentic Gujrati food.

Whenever I visit Chennai, I try and make it to Saravana Bhavan. I like Mini Idly, Pongal, Pine Apple Rava Kesari and their Coffee. Sambar and Chutneys are quite good too. Service and Ambiance is decent... Ofcourse, they make good milk shakes as well... Pondy Bazaar outlet may become too crowded sometimes so avoid late arrivals. Instead you can try... More
