Posted by Awesome South Indian Food in NYC on 05/23/2006
If you want to try a real south indian food, this is the place to go. I am from Chennai, and the food here tastes exactly or almost similar to the food you get in chennai. Amazing food, good service and atmosphere is good as well. You should defly give this a try!!!

The atmosphere is not all that comfortable (very bright lights shine in your face if you don't choose the right table, and many of the seating is directly in front of the restroom and cashier counter). This place makes up for the setting by providing great dosas, and great appetizer dishes.

Hands down, Saravanaas has the best South Indian food in the country. I am of South Indian orgin and I am used to really good South Indian food, and I usually am disappointed by most South Indian restaurants. Saravanaas also offers a lot of home-cooked Kerala dishes such as aveal and appam which are not often served in restaurants outside of India. Everything I have had here was amazing. The Madras coffee, the paysam, the dosa, the idli, vada, etc. I cannot wait to try the other items.

We go almost every weekend - the food is really good and the restaurant itself is very clean - great for vegetarians.

Saravanas has definitely the best selection of Dosas (crepes) in NYC. I recently visited Chennai , India and went to the same restaurant. I am delighted to say that this food in NYC is very comparable to the one in Chennai. Very traditional thali at a good dinner price of 13.95

The food was very good when it was opened last year. The quality has come down in the past three months. Looks like the chef has left or moved to a different restaurant. Hope they will get a cook from India.

I'm not a vegetarian by any means but my friend is so we ate here. Yes, it's a little pricier than many Indian restuarants but the food and flavor is worth the price. It's still reasonable. Our entree came out within 2 minutes of our appetizers, but aside from that service was very good with water being filled up all the time. We had the Thali and it was on like Donkey Kong!
