I like going to this place only because it serves very good south indian food. Ambience though is a turn off but taking into consideration the cost of the food, its fine.

You can have dal, rice, chutneys and enjoy them while gossiping with friends.

Very nice south Indian food, Dhosais and thalis can be recommended, lassis were a bit thick. Service okay. Mostly Indian people and it felt very authentic. Cheap!

We wanted to eat South Indian Food so went to Saravana Bhavan in CP. Ordered Idli and Rava Dosa for me and my mom. Ordered extra sambar after eating 2 spoons of Sambar I find a Dead Cockroach in the sambar. Called the waiter and he called the manager who told sorry and said he will not charge me for the dosa but the thing is I was feeling sick all thinking about that sambar.

Check out first the sambar to see any Cockroach and then eat. I would not go back again to this place.

Great food, no doubt. However you lose out on your hunger waiting outside for your turn, especially during Lunch and dinner time. That wait may simply spoil your entire enthusiasm. It is therefore better either to avail a prior reservation, or have the food home delivered.

I survived 1.5 years in Tamil Nadu on the food of this chain. My standard order used to be the "lunch thali". Very nice!
