Great classic south indian food. Parking available in near by roads, I never had an issue to find a parking space. It was very busy during dinner time, there was lots of customers waiting for the tables. Staffs are very friendly and good service. Only...More

The atmosphere is authentic as many locals are eating here. The Indian Thali is well prepared, it is quite hot for some dishes so make sure it is for you before you order. Nice for a quick and healthy lunch in Tooting.

We visit this place very often and enjoy their Medu Vadas, Rava Masala Dosas, Masala Dosas, Pongal, Filter coffee, Chilli Paneer etc. Very busy restaurant and a very good value for money.

This is real South Indian food. Good portion sizes and always good flavours. The masal dosa is a go-to choice. The dhai vada is super- soft and in a highly delicately flavoured yoghurt. The place is a bit chaotic and lound but that is half...More

Visited on multiple occasions. The north Indian thali is great. In fact most of the food tastes great. Not healthy though, with a lot of oil. The service however is very rude and quite unwelcoming. Hard to see a smiling member of staff.

I had visited Saravan Bhavan in Wembley and Eastham. So, may be, I had very high expectation. There was no waiting or queueing people outside. That itself should have rung alarm bells in my mind. But, I thought may be off peak time!?!? I was...More
