Food: dosa, tasty. Many things were not available. We were told not to order anything beyond page 3. May be because we went there ~ 9 pm. Drinks : water was available on the table but some jugs had floating stuff like someone has washed hand in it. SO DID Not DRINK. Cleanliness: below average (way..) Verdict: never go

Top quality as one would expect. Sambar was a bit too liquid and did not contain much vegetables which was a minor disappointment. Dosas were excellent. Paper masala dosa was terrific (best since the time we went to Madras Coffee House at Connaught Place.)

Fresh vegetables and rice when you want something light. Casual setting. Relaxed. Desserts excellent and try the chai tea

This place compared to their other counterparts is ok. The one in Edison and NY are wonderful. Again it's a small franchise and there isn't much seating. It's an average place with decor. But the turnover with people moving in and out is very high. You won't have to wait more than 15-20 min. They can seat upto 8 people... More

Mouth watering south Indian savories, rice preparations, Dosa, Idli, Bisibela Bhath are the most popular fare among the regulars. Prompt service and freshly made food are the hallmark of Sarvana chain of eateries across the world.

Once you enter south Indian music fills the air. Restaurant has large sitting area so wait time was not there. May be we had gone on Tuesday that may be a reason. We ordered Rasam, mini idly, Adai Avial and 3 different type of dosa. Best was Adai Avial (lentil pancake) and mini idly. We found this restaurant better than... More

I love saravana bhavan from my time in India. This place has amazing food. Simple, right quantity and tasty. Whenever I crave Indian food outside, I definitely visit this place. Try the basics - idlis, pongal, dosa and you wont be disappointed. They are good at south Indian dining.

We visited Sarvana Bhavan in West Windsor a month ago for dinner. Excellent South Indian food to die for. All their dishes come with delicious Coconut Chutney and Sambhar. For Jains they also provide Jain Sambhar. My mother will be happy to hear about it. We ordered Idli, Medu Vada, Ghee Dosa and Tomato/Peas Uttapam followed by South Indian coffee.... More
