A very famous chain of restaurant in Tamil nadu. Well known for tastiest idli sambar, vada, dosa and hot coffee. The hotel is offering different types of combos. Of late, taste is not up to the mark.

Best of South Indian cuisine in the town. Comparatively cleaner than most surrounding places. Paratha was awesome.

It's a must visit for delicious idlis and other South Indian delicacies with chatneys and sambars. A good feature of combo breakfast is awesome.

In this restaurant, not all the items are prepared. Only basic items are made and other items are sent as Pre prepared from the HD kitchen. Hence the special items like cholesterol poori and other similar items are sold limited quantity. Avoid going there.

If you're looking for authentic South Indian food, this is your place to go! It's got great flavours, and the food is served to you in true south Indian style. The filter coffee is amazing. My favorite thing to eat is the masala dosa. There are however times when it might seem unhygienic, but it's not necessarily so.

The safest and the best eatery chain in Chennai. This is as good as any other of the Saravana Bhavans here in this city. The Tamil Nadu vegetarian dishes are top class. The North indian dishes are above par.
