    Quality Coming Down

    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.

    Spiced up right

    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!

    Fabulous vegetarian indian

    Although the decor of Saravanaas seems on first glance perhaps to be trying too hard, the food at the restaurant couldn't be better.

    Best South Indian Food

    We went to this restaurant on 11/12/05 which was highly recommended by my friends.True to say that the food served here par excellence as their madras outlets.Thali served here,I would say the best in manhaattan $14.95. Service wonderful and the servers are very attentative. Keep your service maintained & good luck.

    Authentic Madras Food

    Unpleasant dining experience

    The first time I ordered masala dosa, the server brought a plain dosa and suggested I start eating. He said the potato filling were being prepared - he'd bring it when it was ready (saw the same thing happen to another couple). People familiar with this cuisine will understand how absurd the suggestion is. It's like ordering spaghetti w/meatballs only to be told to eat spaghetti while the meatballs are being prepared. Not wanting to write this place off, I went back. This time our entrees arrived at a gap of 8-10 minutes which when you're hungry is a long time. The last time, it was a repeat performance of the first time. I left thinking the poor customer service and the dazed servers are too much of an annoyance to ever go back.
