The First name in South Indian Food that comes to mind is “Sagar Ratna’. The chain of restaurants is highly acclaimed for its hygienically prepared authentic South Indian delicacies. Sagar Ratna started its first branch in the Defence Colony Market in 1986.
The authentic South Indian cooked fresh many times a day worked well to increase the popularity of Sagar Ratna immensely. Within a short span it spread its wings far and wide, Today Sagar Ratna has established its presence in the National Capital Region (NCR) through company owned branches and beyond NCR through franchise outlets. It is a testimony to its popularity that even today the people of Delhi strongly identify with its Defence Colony branch.
Sagar Ratna has been the recipient of numerous Awards in the Hospitality industry. Sagar Ratna has won the Times Food Award-2012 (Best South Indian Restaurant) a feat it has achieved every year since 2006. The restaurant has also been conferred with several awards by National Institutions like the National Egg Coordination Committee for being Delhi’s best restaurant-2005. Recently, Sagar Ratna was awarded the Golden Spoon Award 2009 for the most admired restaurant of the year by Coca-Cola. Sagar Ratna has also been awarded the coveted “Crystal 2009”, instituted by Hindustan Times for being selected by the residents of the NCR as the Best South Indian Restaurant in the National Capital Region. It has been ranked amongst the best 5 restaurants in India and 450 in Asia by the world renowned Miele Guide.
The strong business model of Sagar Ratna was also recognized by Franchise Awards for excellence in franchising and business development. The nascent coffee aroma emanating from the filter coffee is another specialty of Sagar Ratna. Moreover being served in the traditional steel tumbler and saucer adds to the authentic flavor of this concoction.
