Sagar ratna has been a favorite of my family for many years now. It's our window to the south. Our usual dosa joint. You get wonderful dosas, very soft idlis and yummy sambar. Its the best place to eat South Indian in North India.

Good restaurant with space on ground, first & second floor for visitors. Major attraction is South Indian food only which is available in varieties. However, the taste has impact of North India which is disappointing.

I can't give a negative rating otherwise it would have been a -0 ( minus zero, I know it doesn't exists). On 20th August 2016 visited this place for a lunch with my wife. Ordered for a Sagar Special South Indian thali along with podi idli. Now, what I expected was a delicious South Indian food, what was delivered was... More

Sagar Ratna used to be the best South Indian this side of the Vindhyas once upon time! after change of ownership it has lost its glory. It still churns out quick meal but the taste of old time is not there, we still long for the old Sagar where waiting for table used to be the norm.
