  • Favorite dosas in town! The bhel puri and palak paneer are also great. Cap it all off with yummy gulab jamun and masala chai or Madras coffee.
  • Best dosas on Lexington Avenue. Nice decor. Worth your money, by Manhattan standards
  • Mysore Rava masala dosa is where it's at.
  • The palak paneer is some of the creamiest I've ever had, and with big chunks of spinach. The staff is really friendly, too.
  • The best south Indian food I've eaten in NYC
  • Dosas are great. Be aware they include the tip in the final bill and also print it again in the receipt. Theyre also pushy for you to pay cash.
  • Whenever Im bored of my own cooking and I crave for really good dosa or great thali then I go here.. Dont order wine from here as it is over priced. Instead get mango lassi which is delicious.
  • Avoid the tourists at Saravana, this is a solid South Indian go-to. Chefs lunch special gets you dosa, idli, and vada for $10, and the food is on point for this South Indian boy
  • The lunch special is affordable and delicious. They can also make most of the food vegan or gluten free.
  • dosa! dosa!
  • Authentic South Indian Thalis. Madras coffee was amazing too.
  • Wonderful South Indian veggie food in the heart of Curry Hill.
  • Asked for spiciest food possible and the food had no spice in it. Even the pani poori which had a chili next to it was not spicy. When we complained they gave us hot sauce. The food was not tasty.
  • Pondicherry masala dosa FTW.
  • Nice indian food, but unfriendly staff! We were rushed out of the place
  • Split the Pondicherry dosai and an order of onion pakora. A delicious meal for two that is very affordable.
  • Definite get the dosas.
  • We come every week because it is best. The best crispy dosas !
  • Good food, decent service. Try the rava dosa
  • We came for dosas- and they were pretty good.
