We had some kebab platter and it had some really delicious things cooked in tandoori oven. Especially the mushrooms were very very tasty.

So basically they have 2 restaurants one having south indian food and one with north indian food in the same area. I really like sagar ratna since and i have been their regular customer as well. To start with coconut rava plain is my favourite and dahi vadas they make are amazing to have. Lastly their Madrasi coffe is worth... More

What a wonderful palatable experience at Sugar Ratna Defence Colony....!! The idlis..vadas..dahi vadas...and rawa onion dosas were mouth watering delicious...!! The coconut, mint and onion chutneys were so good that we repeatedly tried all of them..!! The authentic taste of South Indian food left a lingering flavour on our palate..!! Kudos to the management for the amazing food..!!

Went Sagar Ratna again last week and was not disappointed. The food was great. The service was great, and it was great value for money. This place is a winner all the way!

The food used to be top notch but has become average now. Ask for the gunpowder mix with ur dosas to spice it up. Rava Mysore masala dosa and spicy idlis are good options. Dont miss the south indian filter coffee to wash down ur meal

I discovered this friendly, casual & most authentic South Indian vegetarian restaurant thanks to friends about 33 years ago, and have been frequenting it ever since. More than delicious (though fairly spicy) food from South India. Excellent non-stop service. Can get pretty crowded & noisy at peak mealtimes owing to its great popularity.

We went there for a late lunch at around 4pm. However, the place was still crowded. We were a group of 7 adults and 2 kids. We ordered dosa, idli, lemon rice, curd rice and chanch. All the items tasted good. However, "chanch" deserves a special mention. Try it out, if going there.
