Working in Southall we gave Saravana Bhavan a go. A very busy south Indian restaurant frequented by couples, families, and parties. We were seated in what can be described as a fantastic atmospheric place. Although busy, there is plenty of room to chat without feeling other diners are sitting on top of you.

Ordered Idli, North Indian Thali, chili paneer and a mango lassi to wash it all down.

The soup (part of the thali) arrived literally within 50 seconds. The idli, paneer and thali hot on its heels.

Paneer was nice as were the idli, however, the poppadum was a bit soft, the thali curries tasted more or less the same and the accompanying breads tasted like they had been hanging around for a while.

It was not bad, but not brilliant. The place, however, is brilliant.

Staff is efficient and friendly. I would go here again but I have since visited some better restaurants in the area.

Food was yummy, ordered masala dosa and aloo gobi with butter naan was amazing. They brought all our food in few seconds. but portion size of aloo gobi was really small as per the price. Everything was good, need some efforts for service.

This place has good ambience and serves all types of South Indian dishes. There is ample seating accommodation. The prices too are not high.

We choose idli, vada and plain dosa and rava dosa. The food was fresh but a little spicy hot for our taste. The service and speed at which the food arrived to the table was excellent. An Indian restaurant which also takes American Express. Good on you.
