Man Finds Lizard in Sambar at Saravana Bhavan

A man found half a lizard in his Sambar at the popular restaurant Saravana Bhavan in Delhi. Watch our latest video for all the details.

Pankaj Agarwal had visited the popular south Indian restaurant Saravana Bhavan in Connaught Place, Delhi  with his friends on August 1, and ordered dosa and sambar. He said, “I had almost finished my dosa and was taking a last sip of sambar when I found a dead lizard, which was half missing,” Agarwal said he immediately complained to the staff, who apologised. The manager assured him that it would not happen again. However, Agarwal said that since many people visited the restaurant he decided to register a complaint.

First he took a picture of the lizard and put up a very sarcastic review of the ‘Lizard Sambar’ on the Zomato App. He said: Tried their special lizard sambhar, had too many veggies in it, If you’re going to sell lizard sambhar, at least put 2-3 lizards in it, also they were quite thin and stretchy and weren’t properly cooked. As you can see in the picture, i could only eat half of it.”

He has now filed an FIR against the restaurant. The police have asked the restaurant to provide its licence, the CCTV footage, the details of the cook who made the dish, and the list of ingredients used in the sambar.
