We were warmly greeted inside and seated at the table. While we looked at the menu and read through all the options, we noticed that Savariya had a lot of regional western Indian cuisine (predominantly from the states of Gujarat and Rajasthan), not normally served in all Indian restaurants which made this quite unique to them. Gujarat and Rajasthan are 2 states in the Western side of India and are famous for their varieties of vegetarian food and produce. Food from the state of Rajasthan was influenced by the war-like lifestyles of its inhabitants. Their recipes included foods that could last several days and can be consumed cold ass well. Their food is wholesome and very rich in flavour and nutrients.
We ordered a few of their specials including the Rajasthani thali (thali : an Indian-style meal made up of a selection of various dishes which are served on a platter) as well as some of their best sellers like Pav Bhaji (Indian street food: Bread served with mashed and spiced vegetables, a winter favourite).
Although they had a lot of takeaway orders and a constant flow of takeaway customers, our food arrived quickly to the table. It looked good and was true to its flavour. The wait staff also served us a spicy garlic chutney on the side that enhanced the taste of every dish on the table. We liked it so much that we asked for seconds as well.
Savariya restaurant also takes catering orders and their food is reasonably priced. The next time you are after an all Indian and all vegetarian feast, make sure you give Savariya a try. Although it doesn't scream fancy, it is definitely authentic and won't burn a hole in your pocket.
