Although it is well know for South Indian food, I tried out Roti and Veg Kadai when I visited Saravana Bhavan for dinner with a friend. The Roti size was very big and all i needed was one roti. The Curry we ordered was good too. Was crowded during dinner time, so you might have to wait for 5-10 minutes

If you have a craving for Indian food in the middle of the desert, Saravana Bhavan is the joint to visit. You'd get the authentic taste of traditional Indian fare in a modern setting.
