We had S Indian veg meals, paper roast and rawa dosa. The standard seems to have slightly dipped. Not the out of the world S Indian fare that one gets at Saravana Bhavan.

For north indian travellers its a must as you can find variety of authentic south Indian dishes. Ghee paper roast is must have.

No longer Value for money. Quality of food is on the decline over the recent years. Visited a few branches and am particularly disappointed with Pondy Bazaar which has become a bit on dingy side. Good food but not worth price.
