Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's been almost a decade that we're enjoying the delicious south Indian cuisine in Sarvana Bhavan CP, Delhi. Last, 29 Feb 2020, I went there after almost an year and I was disheartened by the experience. When we entered the restaurant I could see the...dust settled on the steps. The restaurant was unclean. The table provided to us was at the end. The workers were banging the utensils just next to us. We requested a table change to which they agreed upon the availability. Then again we had to call the boy to clean the table. The restroom was in an extremely unhygienic condition. They killed our exited family dinner mood but this all could have still been compensated with the taste and quality of the food. Unfortunately it was disappointing. We ordered three appams and masala dosa. The purpose of eating together was defeated as the server brought each item in a gap of 5-7 minutes. . Upon eating we realised that the quality of appam was not the same as before. Dosa was very ordinary in taste and sambhar was tasteless. The food was not up to the mark of Sarvana Bhavan. It was really disappointing to see the deterioration in the service of such a classic name in food industry. Till the end water was not served. When asked for water a jar was provided without the glasses. We did not ask for glasses then and left.More

Excellent lunch with family. Palak paneer dosa paired with the chutneys and sambar is something not to be missed. We also ordered the Madhu Vada and Idli for appetizer and all made to perfection. Must stop when you visit New Dehli

We went here for dinner. Without knowing, we went here upond cab recommendation. When we saw the line at the door we realised 2 things. This will take time. And it really is a good food place. The line moved fast and after 20 minutes...we were seated. The place looks like a high volume canteen. Service was slow, and taking multiple orderings to get our drinks. (Alcohol free). Then we ordered Dosas which seem to be the main food they serve for dinner. Some VERY large dosas arrived with a range of sauces. Well worth the wait. Great food. Great price. But, like in many Indian places.. a long wait.More

Hotel Saravana Bhavan located near Madras Hotel in Connaught Place is an ideal place for relishing authentic South Indian cuisine. It is generally crowded on Sundays/holidays and waiting time would be around 20-30 minutes. The place is spacious with two floors. We went there for...Lunch on a holiday and enjoyed their Fixed Thali Tamil Nadu meals, Masala Dosa, Onion Rava Dosa with Filter Coffee. The dishes were well cooked, delicious and not spicy. They also serve a variety of Dosas, Uthappam, Idly, Vada, Pongal, Sweets etc. The staff are helpful and friendly. We enjoy our periodical visits there; worth the value.More

You can get some good south Indian food including sweets here, but on most days and particularly at meal times be prepared to queue up. There are two outlets in Connaught place, and both are very popular. The food is good; as close as you...can get to an authentic south Indian meal in Delhi.Service is good but a tad slow. A meal for two can cost 700-900 rupees.More

The restaurant has ample seating space on two floors and the service is excellent. It is quite quick even during rush hours. The rates are quite reasonable and the taste is authentic South Indian. You have so much to choose from and can try new...dishes every time you come here. All in all, a good family restaurant.More
