Saravanaa Bhavan is pure paradise for vegetarians who like Indian food. The decor is some what no frills and very simple but the staff is very accommodating and helpful. There are endless super tasty appetizers, dosas, and thalis. The mini meal is great for sharing and gives you the opportunity to try small tastes of several different dishes. There also is the popular South Indian Thali which is perfect for two as an appetizer. Be sure to try some freshly made bread or fluffy rice on the side. To drink you can have spicy and fragrant masala tea or a refreshing and creamy mango lassi.
