Good quality Tamilian food. Service was not the best and had to get the service staff's attention for any second helpings. Two thalis cost about 40aed.

This is the likely place for breakfast on most of the occasions. Like thier dosas, plain or masaala, and shakes. Nice and cozy sitting. Good for casual eating.

Saravana Bhavan does not need an introduction. But dinner for 4 at AED 50 in DUBAI. That is too good for this quality and taste.

The visit to Dubai is not complete without a visit to Saravana Bhavan in Karama. This time was no different. Went there for dinner this time along with a friend of mine. Ordered "thali" and was overwhelmed by the quantity of food served. As one can expect the taste of food served here was good and service quick and friendly.

Dosa, Idli and Vada are a must try. Filter Coffee is another attraction. Part of a global chain of restaurants originating from South India.
