“The Macdonalds of India”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Good cheap, fast, food. Very busy, clean and a great selection. There are lots of these chain restaurants around hence the multiple locations shown on the map. Not an intimate place but very much worth the good food and wait around meal times.

“Good food”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Was in CP for a meeting which stretched and decided to have lunch here. This place is usually full at lunch time and there is a long line for entry. Toay was a Wednesday and i went there around 4 PM and easily got sitting space. The food was predictable in a good way. There were no surprises and dosa i ordered was as i expected.

“Authentic finger licking south Indian food”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I visit this place often and prefer this place over other places when in the area, the food is very tasty, mostly I take the south Indian thali in which you get the taste of many dishes they serve I tried most of the dishes here all are good, the place remain very crowded during lunch and dinner time, so go on time, the place is very spacious I never saw anyone waiting for the table, so go and enjoy good tasty food there.

Many a times I took my foreign guests also there, they also liked the food a lot, the food is not spicy so everyone can enjoy food here.

Enjoy eating

“Definitely South Indian”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Saravan Bhavan is quite popular with locals as well as tourists. Nothing to show off, just go for delicious food and fast service. You are lucky enough if you get the seat without waiting for atleast half hour. I have been there many times and my favorites are Rava onion masala dosa and Buttermilk. For dessert Basundi is must. Highly recommended for lovers of south Indian food.
