0 out of 5 stars I ban this restaurant. Got this news from my friend in Chennai. Saravana bhavan owner gets slammer for life. Can't bring myself to give them business, knowing that the owner is a soul less person. Doesn't matter how good the food is. reviewer

1 out of 5 stars As many mentioned, the staff is rude. They literally overcharge you. Even rasam and sambar if you ask for extra in a thalli, they charge you. What are you supposed to eat with? Heavily overpriced, rude staff and management. I have been going there inspite of all this stuff, but today was the heights. I Hate this place and no longer go. Try Madras Cafe, Dosa Place. Better SI food for less. iluvfood

4 out of 5 stars Good food. It's one of the better examples of South Indian Vegetarian cooking. Service has been spotty - horrible at times, average at times - never awesome or great. the_angrez_boy

4.5 out of 5 stars I don't know what the 1-star reviewers are complaining about (are they competitors?). I have eaten here several times; the food has been excellent. The service is efficient. Never had a problem. ajay
