“Saravana Bhavan, Delhi - Lunch”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

I am surprised to see that one of the members has written that getting a chance to gain entry is still problematic at Saravana Bhavan, at peak hours. I too faced the same difficulty when I visited in Sept 2010. It is there still in May 2013. But as usual the food is good. Service is good. For the diet conscious, as all restaurant foods go...they tend to be on the oily side. I suppose you have to reconcile yourself to that. But they do reduce it when you ask for it when ordering let us say, a Dosa, with less oil. Problem while preparing coconut (Hindi: Naryal) chutney, is that it quickly deteriorates in the hot season. Also a gross difference to the real South Indian experience (i-e. in Tamil Nadu, if you are having the same meal), rice would have been served unlimited, while here it is a la carte. I was surprised. Could have been avoided.

“Authentic South Indian food”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

it is most satisfying meal, but beware of going in peak time, as queues might be long. But, once you settle down and start your meal, there is no end to your belly satusfaction. Surely, try the desserts - worth it.

“Good place for breakfast”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We have been to Sarvana Bhavan for breakfast many times and always come back happy with the experience.

A well served wholesome and a tasty South Indian food. My personal favourite is the 14 idlies which come dipped in sambar with a glass of butter milk
