Tops my list – Along with Swad, Sarovar is my top choice for Indian food in the city. Their menu is extensive, as is their buffet. I am a vegetarian and I always have tons to choose from. Their cuisine mixes northern and southern dishes, and it is mouthwatering. Their staff is attentive and the restaurant is immaculate. Most importantly the food is ALWAYS fresh and delicious. Their lunch buffet has vegetarian and meat options, soups, rice, 2 types of Indian bread, dessert and an array of raitas and chutneys. You will not be disappointed!
Excellent Indian Cuisine – This was our first attempt at Indian food; we have since added this to our favorite restaurant list. The service was impeccable not only time-wise but our waiter explained each dish we inquired about and the basics of this type of food. The service and food were amazing and we can't quit talking about our first experience with Indian food.
User review by pedicam – This was my first experience with Indian food at a real Indian restaurant and I must say, I enjoyed it tremendously. I had average spicyness and it was just the right amount. I wonder what the most spicyness must taste like! The portion was huge. I had enough to pack it for a lunch the next day. And the bread (nan) was delicious.
The server was great and explained things on the menu clearly.
Great all around – Great experience. In my opinion, best Indian food in Austin. Welcoming atmosphere and very reasonable prices especially for the a la carte items. Dinners are HUGE, make sure you have an appetite if you order one. I have never waited for a table and have always been treated graciously. And parking is good.
User review by andy111 – the evening food is served of the morning remaining food. and the hotel supervisor is pathetic response when feedback given. pretty apathetic. i dont suggest honestly this. they do tasty food i have no problem with that
but the food served is not fresh. be mindful of the same..
Good North and South Indian food – I would rate Sarovar the best buffet in Austin. A good mix of south and north indian food. Their idlis are steaming in the buffet unlike in most places where its cold.
A large variety of dishes for their buffet menu. Both veg and non-veg.
good value... – This is the place where you can have 'upma' to 'lamb curry' in the buffet for reasonable price!!!
'Dosa' is amazing, 'lemon rice' remembers your home food made for special occasions, rest of the food is mild spicy, i can assure that you'll enjoy the food!!!
Talk of the Town – Excellent Authentic Indian food with reasonable prices. Don't forget to taste Mango Milk Shake / Mango Luccy
Unpredictable but yummy – Sarovar has pretty good *south* and north indian food, which is rare. Their dosa are the best take-out in town, and are on par with those of Madaras Pavilion for sit-down meals. They have a great selection, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian (important if you have mixed groups!)
The biggest problem with the place is its unpredictable service. Some days, they are great -- attentive, courteous and quick. On other days, they are abysmal. Don't go if you *must* be out of there quick. Highly recommended if time is feeling "Indian" :)
great food! – I love this restaurant. The food is some of the best Indian I have eaten. The spice in it is great. I also like the atmosphere. It is nice and mellow, and not trying to be anything it is not. It is very nice to go to a restaurant that is pretty much all about it's great food. It is always easy to get in on a Friday, and there are also a lot of great vegetarian choices. Try it, it's the best.
