Madras Saravana Bhavan

Staff Pick

No matter how you mispronounce it, MADRAS SARAVANA BHAVAN continues to serve unequalled South Indian cuisine. Yeah, yeah, it’s all vegetarian. But if you eat Narendra Patel’s food and complain about the lack of meat, you deserve a lifetime diet of Vienna sausages. The most popular dishes here are the dosai — rice- and lentil-flour pancakes filled with strongly seasoned, sometimes fiery curried vegetables. But don’t stop there. The enormous menu offers one amazement after another, like baigan bhartha (roasted eggplant sautéed with peas) and several gobi (cauliflower) dishes, including deep-fried gobi Manchurian in a chili sauce.
