HSB in Chennai Central

Hotel Saravana Bhavan restaurant is one of the nicest places to eat in Chennai Central.  Meals in trains, IRCTC food, other outlets selling dosa, biriyani, etc doesn’t seem to impress the customer these days.  A known name, good reliable food is far more relaxing than venturing with unknown places and experiencing the after-effects.
This restaurant is located right in the entrance to platforms 10 and 11, beside the information board. There is a self-service in the ground floor and a normal AC dining in the first floor.  The restaurant can be a bit cramped with passengers carrying their luggage, but the food, needless to say tastes great !
I had a poori masala, the poori was a bit oily, but did not mind it, tasted great.  Chappathi was a sort of let down, it was hard and not as soft as it is normally in HSB.  Ended the meal with a badam kheer.  It was good.
So  overall, nice food before I boarded the train.  Based on the train timing, I have taken food parcel to have in the train.  Since this place opened, I do not have to worry about having good food in the train!
Definitely worth a try !

  1. I can say, u were lucky enough. Have dined here ~10 times here and all were sort of disasters.
    1. During 8-9pm restaurant will be jam packed and just a waiter will be serving.. If u ask them to bring soon since its train time, and they say then u better leave.. Good hospitality..
    2.cramped up with more tables and less walking space.. Acceptable since u get more ppl and less space in Central
    3. Rice items like sambar rice are just a paste of coloured stuff..

    1. Oops ! I should say I am really lucky then !
      Have eaten here at least 3-4 times, but most of them really late in the night, around 10PM. Rest of the times, it was wading through the queue and getting a parcel. Food was always good 🙂 Lucky me !!!
