We used to eat here almost twice every month when they first opened.
BUT, since about Sept 2009, we have noticed that the lunch buffet, except for special holiday weekends, is rather dull with many repetitive rice dishes.
HOWEVER, this has all changed with the new owners since April 2013.
Ate here on Mothers' Day, and again today (Sunday, July 14th). Such excellent tasty items at the lunch buffet.
We had an amazing meal, with items such as veggie meat balls with onions and peppers ( I don't know the Indian name), a cabbage dish, great spicy potatoes, a tomato paneer, dosa, chana masala and many others.
Also, there is a real salad provided too!
Finally, for desert today there were FOUR options!! Yummy! As a big fan of
rasmali (the cheese balls in milk cardamon sauce), I was SO happy they were available. Also, a very nice liquid custard with fruit, and a vermicilli noodle dessert too, and semolina wheat.
Terrific experience- I would encourage you to come here again, if the old Saravana Bhavan disappointed you in its final months (as it certainly did for us).
