This hotel serves authentic South Indian food. You get a touch of South India on this distant island. We visited for breakfast and tried Vada and Idly. The food items servered were simply delicious. Ambiance is not that great. Service is good.

Authentic South Indian meals. tasty and mild on the tummy. The ghee roast (Dosas) were also as we would get in Tamil Nadu. The owner himself was attending us and a very friendly person. Only wished he had not served in plastic plates, else would have rated 5 stars!

The restaurant was very close to our hotel by thinking it would provide us tasty south Indian food, however, was not up-to the mark.

After disappointment with annaporna and blue sea restaurant, I decided to try this pure veg restaurant. I ordered two masala dosas and one tomato utthapam. Sambar was cold and chitneys were not tasty. Overall taste of sambar and chutney was so and so. Hotel SARASWATHI, lambaline is strongly recommended for authentic south indian dishes at very low prices.

If you want to sample some south Indian food in Port Blair head straight to this place. The idli-dosa staple here is great. The place is crammed though and there is constant footfall so prepare to be jostled around while eating.
