Reasonably priced, better than average Indian food.

I've been here several times over the years. It's not posh and it can be a little warm and stuffy at night, but this open-air dining place is clean and well laid out. The wait staff deserve praise. Prompt, neat and friendly. There were minor mix-ups, but nothing irked us. We ordered a mix of... read more

Even though they are an indian restaurant, they have the best chinese-styled mutton fried rice! Most of their food are quote good for a chain restaurant. In fact this branch is my favourite compared to the one in town and the one near penang sports club.

Admittedly it has been September 2013 (not the date required by the TripAdvisor) since I last visited the restaurant and stayed in the adjacent area of Tanjung Bungah but the last visit with a friend left us both entertained by the friendly staff, filled with fabulous Indian food and satiated with drink, food and atmosphere. Fortunately, staying just across the... More

This is a really great restaurant, and I strongly recommend the tourists and visitors to come to this restaurant. What I like the best about this restaurant is the way they decorate this outdoor restaurant; they made it seem quite fancy and very tropical. The food price is somewhere between cheap to mid range. You can find some food charged... More

This place doesn't look like much (in fact looks a bit dubious hygiene wise) - but turns out the food is really authentic + tasty and incredibly cheap (I think one of the cheapest meals we had in Penang). We love our South Indian food (Thosais, Ootapams etc) as well as Tandoori dishes - this place does them all under... More

We are so used to Indian food back home but the meal at Ananda was the best Indian food we''ve ever had. A meal for 4 of us with plenty to eat only cost us 30GBP! Incredile value for money and brilliant service.
