Food was good and pure vegetarian. For South Indian food it is heaven. Dosas utappam and idly is good. They serve North Indian thali, South Indian thali.

Its the brand that you are paying the price for. But because i like a certain type of dosa, theirs are basically the same wherever you go in the world. Maybe in india itself the ghee dosa is crunichier and they are not so thrift with the chutney. Extra papadoms are charged as well. we also has the manchurian ghobi,... More

It's a nice place to find reliably good South Indian food. Really enjoyed an uttapam with chutneys. Rasam is spicy, so watch out. Chai was spot on although felt overpriced for the quantity (but then again, this is in Paris).

Saravana Bhavan is a famous chain and this place doesn't match to it. I have visited ones in KL, Abu Dhabi and Delhi. Taste in very consistent there. Is this restaurant was in India...I would have given 2 rating. But something is good to survive in foreign land.

I ate here twice yesterday - once for a late breakfast (medhu vada and rava khichdi), and again for dinner (Mysore dosa). I don't know what the other reviewers' problems are; this restaurant is delicious!

Food is delicious, portions small and a little pricey compared to its competitors. Dosas are as good as the ones u find in india. Staff though seem distracted and unintersted at times.

This is a good vegetarian & family restaurant. The food is pretty authentic but they can do better for the price they charge. Pretty good to taste most of the Indian cuisines.

We ordered Sarvana Special Thali, Dosa and Mango lassi. Sarvana Special Thali was not up to the mark. They added lots of chili powder and nothing special in taste. Dosa was good but not as expected from Sarvana Bhavan. Staff is not friendly to customers. No comparison to other saravana Bhavans.
