Dosas, thalis, and tiffins! Saravana Bhavan specializes in South Indian cuisine. Each dosa comes with unlimited sambar and three chutneys - the tomato chutney being the house favorite. It is authentic, vegetarian, and very popular with the locals. Waits, especially on weekends, can be lengthy. Be sure and sample the Rava Masala Dosa, washed down with fresh lime juice.

The Community Table, Chennai-Style

Considered one of the top three local restaurants in the city, Saravana Bhavan not only boasts locations throughout Chennai, but throughout the United States as well. After a visit to the adjacent, Kapaleeswarar Temple, pull up any open table, or seat for that matter, the community table is the essence of South Indian dining. This local vegetarian restaurant’s menu is full of idly, dosai, mini tiffin and many more bold South Indian flavors. Wash up before and after your plate arrives in the “hand wash” and don’t be scared to eat with your hands, you won’t find utensils at Hotel Saravana Bhavan. Don’t forget to finish your meal with a hot cup of coffee and hit up their beautiful bakery as you make your way back out into the colorful village of Mylapore.
