    I saw you guys in front of Sangeeta Restaurant! You were queueing and having a few amuse-bouches! I recognized Marouane and Christian! ;) I didn't join you because I was with friends. We went to Saravana Bhavan. Is Sangeeta better or not as good as Saravana?

    September 1, 2013

    • Raj

      Sangeeta is far better and the waiters are much more friendly.
