Good vegetarian food in the center of Abu Dhabi. All the dishes we had were tasty and well prepared. We have been there for lunch and dinner. Availability of some dishes is dependent on lunch or dinner menu. A little difficult to locate unless you are familiar with the area. Its the same level as the food court. Highly recommended...

Went with my family and we don't consume onions at all. When we asked if they had anything for us, the answer was yes, "a plain dosa" with no chutney or sambhar. We were hardly going to eat a rice paper thin dosa for dinner! They were rude and didn't even appreciate our request. They weren't bothered at all.

We are regulars to one of the London branches of Saravana Bhavan so had to try it when in Abu Dhabi. Slightly tricky to find tucked away at the back of a (very strange) shoppin centre. Service was efficient - they came over to take our order immediately we sat down with no time to read the very long menu.... More

Very good South Indian hotel that is true to its name offering high quality South Indian food. Very good service. Lunch is really filling and sumptuous. You won't miss home food if you are from India.

Poori masala was good, cashew pulao was fine, mango juice was superb. Ambience is good and the place can easily accommodate more than 200 people. Just in front of Lulu, this is a sure visit, if you like decent south Indian veg stuff. They do have other Indian cuisines as well

My favourite south Indian restaurant for vegetarian food. Traditional and tasty dosa served with different chutney. Price is not expensive. Their thali meals also really good with lots of varieties. Home away from home.

Food Type: South Indian in general Don'ts: Recommend not to try authentic north Indian dishes and chapati with curry Do's: Medu Vada(Not served from noon to 4.30 pm), South Indian Thali and mostly all dosas, filter coffee Staff: Some of them may seem lazy, but are humble and soft spoken mostly Tamil speaking
