Its not only my favourite place but even my parents. When they want to dine out, it has to be at Sagar Ratna, Defence Colony. And... More

The sagar Ratna we had been in 1990s is completely missing these days. Both the quality of food and service have gone down.The podi dosa we ordered came after half an hour without the podi. The upma was just not cooked properly and was just a tablespoon. In short will not recommend this place to anyone.

The food is quite all right though the place itself feels a bit cramped for room. The value for money is quite good too.

For decades having eating at this wonderful place whenever in Delhi. Good South Indian food that takes minutes to get to your table. Always the best choice for quick lunches between meetings.
