    great food, mediocre service

    Everyone on here seems to have it right. The food is absolutely delicious but the service is very rushed and the space cramped.

    Superb with a few glaring defects

    Excellent South Indian food. This place gets absolutely jam packed so come early. Better than in anything in Jackson Heights or Flushing. My only problem with Saravanaas is the incredibly rushed service- we were asked for our orders twice over the course of few minutes right after we sat. Furthermore, our waiters forgot our utensils several times. Still, you can't beat this combination of food and price.

    Best South Indian food in Manhattan

    With the exception of the Dosa Cart at Washington Square park, this is the best South Indian food in Manhattan, and close to the food you can get in Flushing. Great value, great atmosphere, and tasty food. No one goes to Indian restaurants for the service, you go for the food because there are just not that many good Indian restaurants in the city.

    Wait Staff are rude

    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.

    Beyond the Realm of Rudeness

    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.

    Still the best Sambar, Still a Deal

    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.
