Saw the table nearby ordering this set meal and it was so tempting!! 🤩 We went for this Saravana SPL Meals. (SPL = Special we guess! 🤔) Just noticed in their menu that that the set is not to be shared. We reckon that we order the Tiffin set earlier and hence we didn’t break this rule.😉
This set contains Sweet, Rice, 2 mini poori / 1 chappati, 3 types of vegetables, ‘Vathal Kuzhambu’, ‘Sambar’, ‘Rasam’, Curd, poppadom & pickles.
Vathal kuzhambu, Sambar and Rasam (tamarind base) dishes have bold flavour. ☄️ We love it to the max!! 💯 Poppadom is nice (crack & dip it with cold refreshing curd). Chappati is puffy & warm (not chewy). The set is slightly let down by overcooked rice. 🍚
💡 Believe it or not! that we will come back to this place because of this set alone. This just shows how much we love the way they cook these South Indian Vegetarian dishes!! We also ordered extra lassi $3.50 to share. 🍹 Recommend to try this place after you are done shopping in mustafa centre. (Not too far, air con, and tasty vegetarian food)

The masala chai tea is a perk of ordering mini tiffin vadai set (served when we finish the set). It helps that we remind their staff at that time but if you want to enjoy this along the meal, do tell them). Served very hot, aromatic with just right amount of sweetness). 👌☕️
We love it so much that when we check out Mustafa Centre, we try to recreate the same tea but ain’t taste the same.😅

Tempted to order this mini tiffin set because of ‘Kesiri Bath’(an orange color Indian sweet). How Sweet Tooth we are!! 😛 It turns out ‘Masala Dosai’ served with chutney & sambar is the star!! The seasoned potato is stuffed proportionately beneath the dosai crepe. 🥔
We also enjoy 5 mini round ‘idli’ and the doughnut shaped ‘vadai’. It is a good value set as the portion for each component is very generous and well cooked.👌

We walked past this South Indian restaurant before (the first time we decided not to try as we thought we were early (11 ish) and saw no customers inside the restaurant).🤔
This time we look and again see none! 😱 Until we stand there and ponder as it is a hot afternoon today and we are so hungry! Someone leave the door ajar and we see a big family group sitting inside the restaurant. Our confidence soars even more when we notice one man rushing before us to get into the restaurant.😆
We found out that the place is not well lit so it looks as if none inside at peak hour lunch time. The pic shows what we order for 2 persons (Total bill $25) No service charge (only GST 7% applied)
Note 📝: the place got quite a mixed review in google but don’t be intimidated by that. The staff might seem rush to take your order but they are responding to our request quite fast.🤓

The thali was nice but I didn’t really enjoy the chapati. It was rock hard. Thankfully I had swapped one of it for the poori.


If you are up for a truly Indian meal, try the North Indian Set. Please read my review at
