Just as expected....pretty good South Indian food.
Huge portions and decent service.
We went here on a weekday and got here around noon...had no trouble getting seated.
We had the South Indian thali, an uthappam, and a Mysore masala dosa
The thali was more than enough to fill a hungry adult's tummy....dosa and uthappam didn't disappoint either. This is our 2nd visit to a saravana bhavan (other visit was to the Paris location near Gare du Nord)....on both occasions we came away happy and more than satisfied!
No complaints at all....if you want your authentic South Indian meal fix.... this is the place for sure!!

Had dinner at this small street side South Indian eatery.

The food quality is amazing however, the prices appear to be bit high compared to the level of restaurant.

The service was good and responsive . Ordered some spicy stuff, and was really spicy .. though enjoyed it completely.

Will recommend a must go ..

This is some of the best Indian food in Manhattan. But you definitely go for the food, not the atmosphere. It's almost like a cafeteria, and the tables are quite close together. However, you won't care about any of that once you take a bite of your Paper Thin Masala Dosa! And don't forget to have some delicious masala tea to finish off your meal. YUMM!!!

Good food. But very poor service.
Uttapam recommended.
14 idli is their speciality.
But had much better South Indian in jersey city and Edison.

Friendly Service with patio service. Excellent vegetarian thali and masala dosa, served quickly. The thali comes with an assortment of lentils, vegetable sides, yoghurt, chutney, soup and desert. Spice/heat is subtle; flavour is excellent. For some reason, a freshly warmed chapatti was carefully folded on top of a papadam (soggy). Otherwise, a delightful meal.
