It is hard to beat good Indian restaurants and Ananda's is certainly a good Indian restaurant. The food was excellent; very tasty and obviously very fresh. Being able to see the kitchen is always a good sign and so it was here too. Not cheap but well worth the money if you care about what you eat.

OH MY. I love this place. Such interesting, tasty Indian food and served so beautifully. I had monkfish which was delicious... I can't remember what all the rices were that came with it but there was even so many flavours and choices of RICE! The staff were so pleasant and enthusiastic about the food and explained the origins, flavours and... More

Absolutely lovely. Food was amazing, staff where friendly and attentive and the place had a good atmosphere. Definitely a place I will return to. If I had to made one small suggestions then it would be that it would have been nice to get a little chocolate or mint with our bill but that's hardly something important.

Dinner here is just an event. From the sumptuous surroundings as you enter and the warm greeting whilst being seated. I had the Goan Fish starter which was too delicious to even begin to describe and the Keema (mince) I was stuffed but continued eating as it was so tasty. My husband had the giant Prawns to start with and... More

This is top-class cuisine - every detail is fresh and cleverly conceived. We had a starter to share of various mini dishes, it was preceded by a 'take' on the usual poppadums and pickles (much more delicate and exciting than the trad variety). My duck was cooked just as I had requested and the portion was sufficient for sharing with... More

We visited there on the 9th January, it was a horrible windswept night with torrential rain so were delighted to get inside a see a lovely warm restaurant, cozy surroundings and very nice lighting. It was 9pm on a Saturday evening and the place was alive with the buzz of people eating chatting and laughing, really enjoying themselves. We had... More
