The food was great, but I was appalled at the rudeness of our waiter -- beyond anything I have experienced in my many years of living in NY. Such a pity.

A coworker had raved about this place. Amazing food, etc. It is all nice and said, that their food is good, passable, but what made the entire food experience so distasteful was the service. But our waiter was impatient, rude and very unpleasant. This restaurant does not deserve a rating at all. As we were ordering, he grew impatient and walked away midsentence and started taking an order at another table. There is no excuse for rudeness. Quit your job if you hate people so much. I will never go there again, neither will my friends. It was so offputting, made the food seem poor. Definitely nothing to rave about.

Although the food is not what it once was, this is still great South Indian fare. The Sambar is still fantastic. Mixed Vegetables Paratha is also great, although it is often not properly spiced. When it is, however, it is one of the best 8 bucks to spend in the city. The uttappam are pretty good too, although I'd stay away from the adai avril (which I can't remember how to spell just now), which was dry and pretty tasteless.

What started off as one of the better South Indian offerings in Curry Hill, has been steadily slipping downhill. Either the proprietor's attention is now focused on expanding into NJ, or they just don't care and feel they don't need to make the effort to maintain standards. Service is haphazard and inefficient on most weekends, and the food tastes like that of any other run of the mill South Indian restaurant. Phone calls routinely go into an automated response, making it difficult to place orders for delivery if one wants to.

Saravanaa's has amazing food for a great price. I've been here three times in the past month, and I always want to go back again!

I found this place after work and was one of the few people in the restaurant. Waiter patiently answered my questions and when I inquired about "a little of everything" he pointed me to the tasting menu dish (cannot remember the name.) For about $15.95 you get basmati rice, two kinds of naan, and 10 small cups of various curries and chutneys. It even includes a small warm tapioca dish for dessert. I wish they had labeled each sample, as some were great and some I did not care for. If you're new to Indian cuisine or just want to amuse your palet, definitely ask for this dish. Can feed one person or two if you get another order of rice.

Well! Everything changed. Food used to be excellent. Not now. I think there should be change of kitchen staff or was this due to cost saving. Now food is not good. Not South Indian. It tases like North Indian. Poor service as usual. No proper cleaning of utensils. Again that must be due to cost saving or they do not know how to clean spoons and knives.
