Review-Saravanabhavan Restaurant Southall

Review of Saravanabhavan Southall

Saravanabhavan restaurant located in Southall gives me nostalgic memories of Chennai where I used to be regular visitor of few branches of Saravanabhavan whenever I was travelling in and around Chennai city. Only after visiting its  Southall branch, I noticed that has a chain of restaurents spread out into different countries which include Australia, Canada, France, Germany,Singapore and many other places around the globe.

Now let me come back to the details of Saravanabhavan in Southall. This branch of the restaurent chain is easy to locate as it is only less than a minute walk from the Southall national railway station and almost same distance from the grocery store “Quality Foods” which is a favaourite shopping destination for many Indian as well as Asian people in and around Southall and surrounding areas.

The exact address of the restaurent is givel below:

97 South Road,Southall, UB1 1SQ

The restaurent opening hours are from 10:30 in the morning till 11:00 p.m as per the details on their website.

If you are driving to the location, you will have to get a parking pass from the reception desk using which you can park your vehicle in the parking area behind the restaurant for an hour and a half or about an hour when the restaurant is very busy. You don’t need to worry about the time you spend in the restaurent if you are not driving.

As soon as you enter the restaurant, it might take you to the memories of India and you feel like being somewhere in India with the typical Indian crowd talking in loud voice. I know some of you might offended by noisy atmosphere and some not. Overall, the inside of the restaurant looks nice with a typical Indian touch. The glass shelves near the reception desk showcases Indian sweets and Halwa for the customers to buy. The price at whick they sell the sweets is not that high considering the fact that such sweets are not easily available in many places.

The Menu / Dishes

I think I don’t need to explain the menu of Saravanabhavan as most of the readers are familiar with what they get from the branch of a Saravanabhavan. However, if anyone of the readers are not familiar the restaurant, they might like to have an idea about the type of food they get from a Saravanabhavan restaurant.

Let me explain the dishes to my non-south Indian readers. Saravanabhavan is a vegetarian restaurant where they serve their customers with South Indian vegetarian dishes. Some of their favourite dishes include Idly, Dosa, Vada, Channa batoora,etc. Their masala dosa is a favourite dish among many of its regular customers. They also provide us with south Indian meal which they sell for a reasonably cheaper price.


The service seems to be better compared to many other Indian restaurants. Being located in a prime location, the only thing they need to improve is their customer service standard as many customers might except a better level of customer service, especially those who are not from India.


I would recomment this restaurant to anyone looking for good South Indian vegetarian dishes. It is a good place to visit with your family. It is worth spending an hour or so with your family especially if you have small children.

Roku Express review

Roku Express Review

Features of Roku Express

Roku Express is a very small streaming device using which you can access Netflix, Amazon, HBO, YouTube and much more. The best thing about Roku Express is the fact that it is cheaper compared to other similar products in the market. You can buy Roku Express here for £29.99 from Amazon.

Roku Express is an entry-level streaming device with 1080p streaming compared to the Roku streaming stick with more features and that will cost you around £79.99 in the market. The Roku streaming stick seems to be a bit costlier and I don’t think there is actually the need for it when you can buy Roku Express for just £29.99 and it will help us watch a good number of channels that we would l like to watch.


Roku Express can be considered as a streaming video box rather than a streaming stick.

Roku Express Review

The best part about Roku Express is the real fact that it is actually a tiny box measuring 0.7×3.4x 1.4 inches (HxWxD) which is even smaller than the remote controller provided with the package.

The other four components that come with the Roku Express kit includes a micro USB to USB cable, 2foot long HDMI cable, wall adaptor and a double-sided adhesive tape.

Setting up Roku Express

Setting up the Roku Express is very easy and can be done in a few minutes time.

Here, you just need to connect the box to the TV using the HDMI ports provided and then connect the micro USB cable to the wall adaptor provided. You can also connect the Micro USB cable to the TV itself if your TV has a USP port. (If you connect directly to the TV, you don’t need to use the wall adaptor provided.)

The streaming box can now be attached to the TV using the adhesive tape provided in such a way that the front of your streaming player has a direct line of sight with your remote control.

Now, power on the TV and select the “Input” you used to connect the stream player.
If you need help for selecting the correct input, go to input

Insert the batteries in the remote control. (Two batteries are provided with the package.)
Now, you can activate your stream player by using the computer or smartphone to link to a Roku account and start enjoying the channels.

Roku Review


One major advantage compared to other products is its simple set up process. Also, the price is very attractive compared to similar products you have on the market.



The performance compared to its counterpart is not up to the mark. It is comparatively slow and less powerful when compared with similar products.

Final Verdict

It seems a better and cheap option for those who like to watch news channels and other favourite programs in their own regional language in the comfort of their home and on the TV screen rather than on a laptop. You don’t need to go for the paid channels on the list as the unpaid option itself will provide us with good entertainment and informative channels. There are no monthly payments for the basic service and lots of channels are free, including many that show movies and TV shows.

Not it is your turn whether to buy now or not at a cheap price of £29.99

Still, if you are interested in buying only the Roku streaming stick, you can do that here.
