really good value, portions are huge, and its easy to order too much. nice staff, my only issue was that the gravy was almost chinese tasting. breads were magic, worth making the effort to visit.

Pros: good value

Delicious Dosas

Huge menu of genuine South Indian dishes. Authentic flavours. Fabulous dosas, served with brilliant chutneys. Informal atmosphere; glittering with lighting; simple unfussy. Fast efficient service. Vegan concept understood by waiters. Actually our visits to London seem incompletely without going to Saraswathy Bhavan for a dosa; and last time we happily ate there on three consecutive nights.

Pros: excellent flavour, authentic south indian, good value

Bargain S. Indian near Tooting Broadway station

Seven of us ate much more than we should have in this cheap-and-cheerful cafe-style restaurant, and the bill came to under £70 (before we added a tip). The speciality is dhosas - large crisp pancakes - and they were extremely good, as were our starters which included cauliflower cooked in an interesting bright red batter. The waiter was polite and helpful and, even though vegan dishes aren't identified on the menu, he was readily able to tell us which food was vegan (and quite a lot of it is). The place isn't licensed but they do fresh juices, and bring tap water to the table with your having to ask :-)

There are quite a few good veggie or veggie-friendly restaurants in this area of London but the value this one offers is hard to beat. I will definitely be going back, but will try to work up more of an appetite first!

Pros: Delicious food, Plenty for vegans, Friendly service
