Saravanaa Bhavan - excellent South Indian vegetarian (Vancouver)
Saravanaa Bhavan, for the uninitiated, is a chain restaurant which originates from Chennai, India. They have dozens of locations around the world. There are four locations in Canada ( Mississauga, Scarborough, Richmond Hill, and Vancouver)
Many friends, colleagues, forum denizens and bloggers have raved about the local Saravanaa Bhavan for quite some time. For one reason or another, I had not been able to experience it for myself.
Well today, my wife and I finally dined here. We had their $9.99 lunch buffet.....what a phenomenal deal. The food tasted very fresh despite the buffet-style service. Freshly made dosa, pooris, and idlis were continuously rotating out of the back. Delicious food.
The service was excellent and friendly. The value is very hard to beat. It could be the best buffet in town right now.
Tomorrow (Oct 28th) they are having a Diwali special buffet for $12.95 with a choice of 23 items including special desserts. I think I will be there for the second time in 24 hours.
Saravanaa Bhavan is close to the corner of Broadway at Oak.
