Had a meal here last week with college mates. The place lived up to its reputation, though I had expected the food to be more spicy, which I like. I ordered the Chicken Vindaloo, as I like hot food.Whilst absolutely delicious, I had hoped for hotter. Still, I wouldn't deduct marks for what I got as the food was just... More

Last time I was here earlier in the year I was just taken aback that there was a poorish review. I was pleased to see that is no longer the case and those who like good food and wonderful atmospheres consistently now say so on trip advisor. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to return again and find it... More

My husband and I are regular diners at Ananda but I just had to write a review on this occasion . The food at Ananda is second to none. We had prawns, scallops, sea bass, dhal, naan bread and the most delicious little "amuse bouche" potato and cheese cakes. All tasty, intensely flavoured and wonderfully presented. Delicious. Service is smart... More

Why this restaurant doesn't have a Michelin Star I don't know. Ananda is probably one of my favourite places to dine because it never disappoints, always delivers & continually gets better & better & better. My wife & I brought friends to dinner there last night to liven up a wet & windy stay at home long weekend and we... More

highly recommend this restaurant. We go about every 3 weeks or so for Sunday lunch, great value, delicious food and friendly service. The mixed grill is particularly good with an excellent selection of tandori meats (duck, lamb, chicken, pigeon), bombay potatoes, fluffy rice, fresh naan.

My son and I ate in Ananda recently and it is outstanding. We enjoyed wonderful food, beautifully presented and we were looked after by friendly and attentive staff. Our experience from beginning to end was terrific and I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Having enjoyed a lazy morning chillin' with my hubby watching the excellence displayed by the amazing athletes , participating in The Commonwealth Games and simultaneously following the wonderful Rick Stein in India on his epic search for the 'Perfect Curry' I was inspired to suggest that we might venture this Saturday evening to one of my favourite restaurants Anandas in...

This was my first visit to Ananda restaurant which had come highly recommended by friends. All I can say is OUTSTANDING!!! It can be very difficult to find good Indian food without the 'takeaway' factor, Ananda is the gourmet Indian restaurant. An excellent menu giving choices of meat, fish and veg! We started with a Starter platter, which gave us... More
