“Don't mistake this for Hotel Saravana Bhavan of Chennai”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

For vegetarians this was the only option in Kanyakumari. You are damned if you are stuck in Kanyakumai and can not eat sea food.
Saravana offers very average undercooked food. Heard that they are part of the same management which owns multiple hotels and restaurants there. Obviously monopoly brings you the worst deal.
Even if you are ready to pay more money, you are cursed to eat at Saravana.

“Terrible experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

I had a terrible experience in saravana hotel on the way to ferry,kanyakumari.After check in at hotel tamilnadu I want to search for good food from out side hotel tamilnadu.After some time walk through the busy streets I found the famous brand saravana.Entered the hotel and asked about the food items they have.A waiter then asked me what you want.I said 12 chappathy and two veg curry and I asked about the menu card.Then they gave the bill for Rs:420/- instead of the menu .One chappathy priced 18Rs.12 CHAPPATHY COSTS 216Rs..!two veg curries costs more than 200rs.I felt it is cheating.I asked them why you give the bill,while Iam asking the menu.The wiaiter shouts me to pay the cash.I refused to pay. Another waiter came and said me that this is the rate at kanyakumari.I came out after argument with that guys without bying anything.

Later we had food at hotel tamilnadu itself.it is ok and cheaper than the saravana rate.

I believe that the saravana people is trying to betray the tourists.So first study the menu first and then order the food

Its an average hotel. The dishes served are just average quality, and there is nothing great about this hotel. The prices little high for the standard.

“Very good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Now there was 2 Saravanas in Kanyakumari .This is about the one on the way down to the ferry.We have always found this one very friendly and good food served.The manager takes the order and is good at explaining the menu and telling the kitchen to tone down the spices if needed.
