My first preference at any tamil restaurant will be chilly barotta and badam kheer. The poori-channa was also tasty but will definitely recommend the chilli barotta. The spice level was just perfect. And the badam kheer was a perfect accompaniment to the barotta. Worth a visit.

We were starved looking for Indian Cousine in the US. Luckily our friends found the perfect solution. Saravana Bhavan has kept up its quality in India and here it was no different. The Curd Rice, the Chutneys just took me back to India. Also, since Diwali was around the corner, they had a lot of Indian sweets on offer. A... More

The food was okay , The service was just okay. The combo meal we ordered was filling. The kesari was just mediocre. The filter coffee was just average too, Expected more from saravana bhavan.

There are so many mixed reviews for this, that I had to clarify. We came here on a Saturday for lunch and ordered special meals. There was poori, cauliflower sabji, rice, sambar, rasam, yam poriyal, vatha kozhambu, pineapple kesari, appalam, curds and pickle. The food was yum and we enjoyed every bit of it. Now for the service, we din't... More

We have tried so many restaurants in the South Bay/Peninsula area and Saravana Bhavana probably has the best quality.

Very good vegetarian food if you are a vegi lover. I love the thali options. Lots of delicious items in one thali order.

A no-frills old Denny's style eatery building has been transformed into one of South India's popular international chains, sort of like a classier McDonald's (because McD's is very very international). I don't eat here very often because the food is rich, and somewhat fattening. But it is consistently good, and nails the South Indian classics, such as dosas, curd and... More

Towards the tail of my weeks long visit in the US, I was craving for authentic south Indian fare,its easy to find north Indian but difficult to find a south Indian one where taste is not compromised. When a friend suggested that there is Saravana bhavan nearby, I jumped out of my seat. Was a bit anxious if the taste... More

The food here was very average, restaurant has a "worn" and dated look. Very poor service. Had to literally get up walk to a server and physically get him to our table to take the order. The waiters just dump the food on the table without care if they are spilling something or not. After waiting for almost 20 mins... More

I have been to this place before and now visited again with some colleagues. I must say the place has become quite rundown. The first thing that gets to you is the service. It is abysmal and really should improve much. It has gone down a notch from my past visit. 1. The Waiter took more than 5 minutes to... More
