Anyone here have experience with Saravanna Bhavan on 26th and lex? Vegetarian friend is in town, and looking for an inexpensive place to go thats something a little different from the typical veggie fare. Friend has never had south indian, but is an adventurous eater who is always willing to try something new.
Thanks for your replies!
I've always liked their food, but you should know before you go that you may be waiting 30 minutes for your check when you want it, etc.
Another vegetarian restaurant I've liked in the neighborhood is Chennai Garden. Madras Mahal is also good, though perhaps a shade less delicious.
(Caveat: It's probably been a year and a half or more since I've been to any of these places.)
I love Saravannas dosas.
But they also make another dish which is great called "adai avail" - a sort of pancake from lentil flour. A tad greasy, but very tasty.
Dosas across the street at Anjappar also were terrific last week.
