Saravana Bhavan2nd Floor, Victoria Plaza, Westlands, Nairobi
Service was VERY VERY SLOW and too many blunders in the food and the final billing!
1) Only had one waiter serving everyone in the restaurant. 2) Food was taken too long to be served. Ordered veg Soup, was served flour and soup without any veggies. Ordered Methi naan, was served butter naan.
After us complaining, the manager decided not to charge us for the soup. BUT the final billing we were charged for it and an additional item was added even when we hadn't ordered it. We were overcharged by 800 bob! Which they decided to correct after pointing out their mistake.
Food was no doubt tasty but sorry, never going to go there again considering it was our FIRST TIME dining there.
Good authentic South-Indian food. Tried out variety dishes like keema idli and keema paratha which actually tasted good. Dosas were just so awesome!!! Only disappointment was the bisi bela bath which we ordered actually tasted like rice and sambar. Overall good experience though the prices were a little higher.
As Kenyans we do not have many vegetarian options when it comes to restaurants, nor we do find it easy to appreciate them. I like SB because it gives us a new insight into Indian food, without all the tikka :D Our waiter was polite and attentive, his recommendations excellent and the ambience, especially at night, beautiful.
Seriously authentic South Indian food. The Channa Bhattura, Ghee Roast and Onion Rava Dosa are our favourites. We go to this restaurant at least once a week, and the service is always great. You get free top-ups of sambar and chutneys if you need, and you can see the food being made by the Tamil chef - so you know it's fresh and absolutely authentic! Being South Indian, the food here reminds me of being home and is so comforting. Also, the chai is out of this world and a great way to end your meal.
Loved the ambience... service was good..tasty food... definitely will visit again
