Fantastic vegetarian restaurant. Extensive menu. Took a little while to find among the plethora of Brickfields shops, but well worth it. Has been shortlisted by Time Out Kuala Lumpur in their Best Indian restaurant. We each ate the 'Saravana Special Meal' and with two lime juice plus one small bottle of water came to 37 Malay Ringit (c. £6). Similar to a Thali, the plate had several different types of dhal, curry and was accompanied by steamed rice, poppadum and chappati. Lots of different textures, flavour and heat. Can't wait to go back! Service was very quick and polite. Lots of Indian families having meals on Saturday night. It's clean, bright and a bit formica/plastic so not a romantic venue but well worth the adventure off the beaten track. http://www.saravanabhavan.com/menu/Malaysia/malaysia_kuala_lumpur.pdf

At first it was hard to find the branch of Saravana Bhavan. It was hidden among some indian shops and where typical indians are busy chatting in groups. The waiter who served us was prompt and fast when my cousin asked to taste mock chicken and mutton. The result was amazing. It was hot and spicy and tasted like a real chicken. The waiter was happy to see that we were happy with our food. The restaurant was crowded but had some empty seats for us when we went there around 8.20pm. A true vegetarian indian restaurant that aims to give the diners what they want.

We travelled from KLCC to this restaurant. It was worth the effort. The service was good and the staff were friendly. The food (vadais, tali meal and vegetable biriani) was excellent and authentic. The lime juice with soda water was very refreshing.

It is a good time to eat in HOTEL SARAVANA BHAVAN. It is a Chain of Hotels which keep the same taste whether it is in Chennai or Kuala Lumpur or Singapore or Dubai. I like the taste of IDIYAPPAM with COCONUT MILK. They say it is good for health also. I like the food of Hotel Saravana Bhavan which has less oil in Masala Dosa and less masala in "Kurma". If you are not hungry and still want to eat something. Hotel Saravana Bhavan is the best.
