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

I like Indian food in general but this place is the real deal. Busy Sat night but service was fast and friendly. Starters were amazing and the combo dish of main courses was a perfect choice for me. Will definitely be back.

I had read good things about Ananda, which is why I have wanted to go there for some time. Last night, I finally got the chance. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. First of all, the staff - each of them was very friendly, helpful and attentive. Our daughters aren't quite as keen on Indian food as... More

It has a great selection of authentic and inspired dishes and the service is brisk yet not intrusive. We loved it and the price was good also. Give this one a... More

I brought 4 clients for dinner in ananda's a couple days ago. From start to finish everything was brilliant. My guests were extremely impressed with the ambiance but more importantly the top quality food. I had the rack of lamb cooked medium rare. Stunning dish. Can't wait to return. I highly recommend to anyone.

The food is beautifully served and presented. It is certainly very good value if you go for the early bird. Nice atmosphere and ambiance. Park in the Dundrum shopping centre and head for the cinema direction. It is located on the 2nd floor. Well worth a visit and the waiters explain the content of each course.

Excellent food and service in a difficult to find spot in Dundrum Shopping Centre. Fantastic value meals in early evening which we have combined with a movie downstairs. The food is by far and away the best Indian food in the area. Staff are pleasant and the decor is lovely.
