This place has very good South indian food. Their thali is a personal favourite. But its often very full and you get long waiting queues at lunchtime. So its best to make a reservation in advance and/or reach their early.. Early means 12:30 lunch .

I generally do not like south indian food in Delhi, but when it comes to sarvana bhawan, i just fall for it. A place which serves all sort of south indian dishes. One of the must try food here is appam and badam halwa. Rest every other delicacy is just perfect! Overall a perfect place for south indian lovers

Saravana Bhavan takes me back to Madras/ Chennai. Authentic South Indian food. Had Rava Masala and Rasam Vada- my favorites! Previous visit we had South Indian Meals- you should definitely try this if you are visiting a South Indian restaurant for the first time. Like Mom's food!

Great place for an authentic South Indian Thali set or other delicacies (like a Dosa). Everything is vegetarian. The food is great and also very cheap. Highly recommended.

Consistently the best meal in town. Affordable, fresh, delicious, courteous. I am grateful they have expanded the seating capacity in the last couple of years because at the main one in Janpath the wait at peak hours was getting long. An absolute must. For my first years coming to Delhi, I would only eat there. Now that I have expanded... More
