I have family from South India, and I cook. Our family loves Indian food, especially South Indian, and Karavalli offers lots of choices. We had Masala Dosa (excellent) and Manchurian Gobi (East-Asian inspired cauliflower, nicely spicy as appetizers, and then really loved the Meen curry (lovely fish with coconut milk, curry leaves and veggies). Saw sizzling plates of tandoori options... More

Great food and friendly staff. The atmosphere of the restaurant is not the best but they make up for this with the quality of the food and service. Certainly will return.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Saratoga Springs. Unassuming, not pretentious. Just wonderful food, efficient service, and an excellent dining value. I am partial to the lunch and Sunday brunch buffets. One is able to sample a variety of dishes, along with salad, bottomless naan, and dessert, at an incredibly reasonable price. And the buffet items are constantly... More

My wife and I had lunch at Karavalli on Friday. We were seated right away, and service was fine. I had the buffet, which had several meat and vegetarian options. Every item I had was very tasty, however, there was no "heat", and was very mild on the spices. As someone who enjoys authentic Indian cousine, it left me wanting.... More

I love Indian food and have been to Indian restaurants all up and down the east coast and this is one of the best I've been to. We were there for lunch on Saturday, and although we were early, they offered to seat us as long as we didn't mind waiting while they finished filling the buffet. Our wait was... More

We enjoy really good Indian food, and this is really good Indian food. We enjoyed the appetizers (Samosas, idli, dosas) were all excellent. Sauces and chutneys were very nice. Entrée items were excellent. Garlic naan and tandoori roti were excellent as well. Restaurant is small. Table are too close together, too little space to move comfortably. Service was good. We...

My husband and I both enjoyed this restaurant. The naan was delicious. We ordered from the vegan menu and thought the food was tasty and abundant. It was busy and a good atmosphere for a festive evening. I would go back.

I was hopeful that this would be very good, but unfortunately it was not. The waitress must have been brand new - I had to show her our orders on the menu. She didn't know if they served a certain type of soda. And she kept asking my son to hand her his plate, to put the fork on top,... More

Went with a few friends for luncheon buffet. Good number of choices, each of them well marked, not only as to what they were, but often as to what was in them; very helpful. Also, pointed out to my wife, who is celiac, what choices she could eat, also extremely helpful. Food was delicious, fragrant, and beautifully prepared. Desserts were... More

My wife and I ate here on a recent Sunday afternoon. The restaurant is nice, but small, the tables are close together, So having a private conversation is impossible if there is a party next to you. The buffet was a real disappointment. The food that should have been hot was cold to lukewarm at BEST, and the food that... More
