What people say about us

The whole experience at Sanjeevanam restaurant at Chennai was fantastic, starting from the soup to the soft parathas and tofu curry. I never thought Healthy food could be so delicious. After food, I also picked up some Health items from your shop outside the restaurant. Hats off to the founders of this health food venture. It would be great if you could also have door deliveries for your restaurant.
