Having eaten phenomenal homecooked Indian food and phenomenal restaurant cooked food in India, I'm in a good position to state: this place is as good as it gets in Manhattan. You don't go there for the decor, which is functional, but for the food, which rocks. Now that they've expanded into the space next door (a former restaurant that couldn't compete), there's plenty of space for everyone. A lifelong Manhattan food connoisseur, Saravanas is one of my top 10 NY restaurants.

Visited the restaurant yesterday after a year. We ordered two dishes that were mediocre at best. The chappathi was undercooked and the dosa certainly not thin was cooked on one side and raw on the other. The food was not hot. The food was far better when it first opened.

It was a great sign that there was a line out the door of Indians -- says a lot about the authenticity of the food. Atmosphere is simple but nice, service was OK, but the food was absolutely incredible, and the price was reasonable. I had never really had Southern Indian food, so I was thrilled to try something new. Everything was delicious: flavorful and filling without being too heavy. The price is totally reasonable as well. I plan to go back regularly and bring friends and family visiting me in the city. Overall, a new and excellent culinary experience.

Great selection of options, food comes quickly, and it is very tasty. The Hampton Chutney Co is a poor quality rip off compared to this place.

This place is very expensive as compare to the food choice, services and portion they provide. there are many more places nearby with competitive price and excellent food choice.
