The Sarvana Bhavan is good hotel but it charges premium rates. It provides little bit less curryNorth Indian thali.

I tried this eatery during my stay in Saravanan Lodge, a nearby budget hotel. I ordered Rawa Masala Dosa and tea here. The food was little pricey but tasty. But i got my order after 30 minutes. It is better if they improve their services.

Visiting Chennai after several years, I was really looking forward to enjoying Saravana special thalli and their hot coffee. Turned out to be shockingly mediocre. Sad to see the quality of SB go so down.
