Not disappointing South Indian food

The food tasted good. The menu and the recipe were authentic and typical of HSB. Initially I was kind of put off as it smelt like typical Singapore Komala Vilas. From the looks of the restaurant; service areas and washrooms a lot needs attention from the management

It delivers or beats expectations. The staff wirk hard to provide efficient service especially at busy times. The food could be served hotter such as the sambhar and other curries. Staff works hard to keep the place clean .. losing battle given the clientele on a Saturday afternoon ... It is a pleasure go be at a modestly priced family... More

We live near this restaurant and visit from time to time. I recently had a takeout order of sambhar that contained a very large, stewed ant--since then I haven't gone back except at someone's request. (I didn't want to ruin their favorite restaurant for them.) We have also been to Saravana Bhavan in Singapore and Paris. Singapore was tastier but... More

Food is the standard great saravana bhavan offering. However, the charm is missing. They don't make sweets and savouries here anymore.

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.
