Liked the food. Tried the Andhra Spicy Dosa and was alright. Saag Paneer was really good. The quantity is good too. The service is exceptionally quick. It is more like a home setup with friendly staff member. Definitely will go there next time.

Traveling from DC and being tired of 'fake' South Indian food, we were honestly tired of gimmicky food places. We loved the food here. Soooooo good. Uthapam, freshly made. Masala dosa freshly made. Chutney, so spicy and good. Washed it all down with Madras coffee. See photos.

Cooked fresh, perfectly spiced (caters to the South Asian population spice level tolerance), all vegetarian delight for your taste buds... Not to miss in SA. The place itself is unremarkable, fast food style but the cuisine makes up for everything

Was vacationing in San Antonio with family when we needed a quick lunch. Restaurant is small and very cost-effective setup. Food tasted pretty good. Not the type of place where you take your family for special occasion. But pretty good for a quick bite on the go.

Although the restaurant looks little old the food is very good. I ate for 3 days every evening and tried different dishes. The offerings are great. I never got sick :). I stayed in San Antonio for 3 days.

I have been frequenting Pavani for several years now. Having lived, worked and travelled extensively in South Asia I developed an appreciation for the diverse cuisines found there...especially the vegetarian offerings. The ambience is " aging strip center minimalist" but you don't go there for the surroundings. Get take out if you want a more elegant place to eat. But... More

This place is going downhill pretty quickly. This started happening after the cashier girl left. (she apparently went on a "holiday" and never came back). The food does not taste as good. The cleanliness of the place has become questionable. We noticed one of the temp Indian workers (at the cash register) having a major argument with the cook (a... More

There are multiple menu options, but it is a small place with limited seating. Dosa, idli, manchuri , pesarittu were tasting great. The sambhar was awsome, the chutney tasted stale.
