Sagar Ratna – a place which is synonymous for its South Indian fare in Delhi since the late 80’s. Known for its authentic fare, it’s loved by all. Being consistently evolving with new menu ideas, including interesting menus for the old and new, and the affordable pricing, they definitely know their game. It’s the sole reason they have been unfaltering in their presence across Delhi and NCR.
Recently, they opened their doors in the DLF Square Mall which is just across the Sarojini Nagar Market. The outlet has a contemporary approach in its design and the seating area is huge. They have a private dining segment for intimate parties. After an eventful day of shopping, and with a completely ravenous appetite, we made way to Sagar Ratna. The menu is the same as with other outlets and there is a range of options starting with Chinese, North Indian and South Indian food.
We started with their best sellers during the summer – Dahi Vada – soft vadas in cold dahi, you just can’t stop at one. Idli Chaat – this one was something new, mini fried idlis served as a chaat with dahi & saunth ki chutney. This one shouldn’t be missed.
Being at Sagar Ratna, trying their South Indian fare is a must : Assorted Podi Idlis is one such dish that we love here and so are the dosas. The one we had were the Chettinad Dosa served with three types of potato stuffing, sambhar and chutneys. One was a Cheesy Mixed Vegetable Dosa, and you would feel like it’s a pizza topping in a dosa making it very interesting as kids will love to have these.
Last but the personal favorite was the Pepper Garlic Dosa – again served with three types of potato stuffing, the crispy garlic with the hot pepper, it can’t get better. All the dosas are made with desi ghee so it’s an added flavor.
Desserts was the Rava Kesari and Payasam. Rava Kesari mostly like a suji halwa was a little bit high on sweetness but we loved the Payasam.
This is a perfect place after a hectic day of shopping or even just for an indulging time with friends and family. The reasonable pricing and the quick service makes this place a must visit when in the vicinity.
