It’s a pity that there is no Saravana Bhawan in Gurgaon & we have to drive 35 km to eat a lunch or dinner here. If u reach after 1.15 in the afternoon or 7.30 in th evening, u will b standing in a queue on the shaded footpath. They just opened up a second restaurant besides the earlier one recently.
Food is excellent – Soft, fermented feel piping hot idly with some super cool accompaniments. Very nice & fresh medu vada, a huge list of tasty & interesting dosas, utthapams, adai, aviyal etc. In case adai sounds new, pls read the detailed description. The south Indian thali is very good & so r the South Indian dessert options. There r quite a few fresh fruit juices available & of course the filter coffee.

I had a strange experience with myself at Murugan Idly: My hands just resisted to stop – they kept transporting more & more of outstandingly delicious food to the mouth. The tastebuds wud thank them and ask for more & they wud oblige…… till the time the stomach imposed a curfew on the mouth & oesophagus!!!!!!
Lots of food between three of us – lipsmacking – ‘cannot stop having’ kind, freshly made & served piping hot – Started with soft, flavorful salty Paniyaram after dipping it in gunpowder that has been soaked in ghee. Moved on to super soft & sour idlis, 3 kinds of chutneys that I took 3 helpings each, a thick sambhar, crisp upper & soft inside medu vada with lots of full black pepper thrown in, A tasty Onion Utthapam, rava ghee onion dosa with a never before potato filling and as if this was not enough, a dessert of fantastic ghee-laden full of aromatic flavors Pongal. Honestly, I have not had so much food in any one meal in the last five years!!!!
