Saravana Bhavan is well known South Indian Restaurant back-in India. Food was really good but the service was bad. Restaurant is always crowded.

I miss this place already. The food is totally authentic (the chefs are from India), dish-delish, flavorful and many choices to meet the needs of your tastes buds. Food comes out pretty quick and the service is friendly and there to help. I can not eat spicy food and told the server and she recommended a few options. They were quite good. They had a little bite to them but it was totally manageable. So. bottom line, if you want some good, authentic indian vegetarian food, definitely stop here and enjoy the experience. The mango lassies are good and they offer coffee like they do in Madras. Eat up!

This restaurant was recommended by the Super 8 reception clerk. Food is Indian from south India so it is rice based and not wheat based like the food from north India. Manager at restaurant was extremely helpful in assisting us decide what we might like from their varied and extensive menu. Food came is short order, was hot and plentiful. This was my first experience with south Indian food and I would head back again if there was such a restaurant in my area.

Very authentic, tasty S.Indian vegetarian food.
If you are looking for this type of food, I can make an unquivocal recommendation that you visit this place. The ambience is rather unimpressive. Go for the food and the authentic experience, not the ambience.
Dosas are great. The "Thali" or set meal is very good too - and a good value.

I went to the restaurant a few days back and ordered Mixed Parotta... There was a DEAD ROACH in the food... I told the server about it and he just replaced it with another plate and didnt even apologize.

I used to go there regularly. But now, NEVER... So beware people...
