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.

When you goto saravana bhavan you will know that you get consistent quality food at affordable prices(after the recent price reductions). Have visited this branch few times alone and with friends and usually go for simple south Indian food like dosas and idlis and they are great.

HSB has some nice breakfast combos in TIDEL Park food court. The chutneys are excellent, vada is small. But overall it makes you feel great, though it burns a hole in the purse.

Had been to Chennai in 1st week of November. Partners suggested for Saravana Bhavan Ashoknagar, for a good Veg Restaurant. They have both North Indian and South Indian Thali(single plate with pockets for varoius items). The spread was good and quality of food was really good. If one is interested in veg food this is a very reliable and enjoyable... More
