The food was great as I had heard about this place, authentic South Indian Delights as well as North Indian fare. Amazing coffee. The Service seemed slightly slow, but the quality of food made up for any shortcoming

I am big fan of saravana bhavan however this is place really lack service. We were waiting for at least 10 mins but no one came to take the order. The place is not crowded as well. Food Quality also gone down in recent times....More

Instead of the usual dosa and idli's which are ofcourse very good, I would recommend trying the chennai thali and the south Indian Thali. They are just awesome. Food with great textures and flavours.

In Sarvana Bhavan when we asked for a little food they gave us too much and got even more money from us. But they do still have good offers.

Sarvana bhavan is quite famous for its wholesome breakfast and meals. We landed here while we were on our way to Mahabalipuram. all the items we ordered were very tasty and so was the filter coffee. Must visit!

This is best for South Indian food, but still there's some improvement scope. Famous name in Chennai, can maintain their goodwill, if they focus more on hygiene and customer service. Good ambiance though.

Away from home or in the city this place serves the food of your choice. It has a large variety of north/south Indian, fast food and sweets available. The quality of food is good. Do give it a try.
