This was the best of the cheap restaurants we had in Penang. When I say cheap, I mean it! We ate dossi for less than $1, along with other odds and ends. Very tasty and good.

We were looking for the vegetarian 'branch' but happened upon this first - we certainly didn't feel that we'd lost out though as they had lots of vegetarian options to choose from anyway. We effectively made up a veggie thali for ourselves and really enjoyed all our choices. We probably ordered one dish too many but we did give it... More

I'd already shortlisted this place before travelling but for some reason I only managed to get around to eating here on my last day in Georgetown. Made a special effort and was glad I did. I had the banana leaf set and teh tarik, only around 10RM all up. Food was delicious and I even enjoyed the teh tarik, not... More

Yummy Indian cuisine. Love the egg fried rice! Very suitable for kids. Considering Penang is now very high traffic volume and car parking is an issue, the one located in Macalister Road is ideal as there is a big compound for car parking.

It is indeed a busy eating place with noisy diners and too many waiters moving up and down and it was hard to get one to attend to us. We had to flag one down literally to get our food order and we almost ran out of patience waiting for our dinner. We had to wait for more than half... More

My family love Indian food and often eat it at home. This is Indian vegetarian at its finest. We had the banana leaf set along with the mock chicken, mutton and fish. All were superb!

Sri Ananda Bahwan has such a list that at least I wanted to cry of joy when seeing it. Dosa fiesta! Mock meat specialities! Idli, appam & kulchas... Both south and north indian thalis, long a la carte and everything pure veg. Ragi tosai was what got us most excited. Try it! So good & filling. And inexpensive too.

We stumbled in here after a day touring the Island and I was hungry. I ordered too quickly! What I had was fine but I later found all my favourites at great prices and in the over the top atmosphere that marks Indian eateries at this price level. The sweets were superb so we took some away as well.

The food at this location was brilliant. We eat Indian food about 4 times a week and ate here 2 out of our 3 days in Penang. For the price, the food is very good quality with exceptional flavour. Very popular among the locals of Penang, there is a large dining hall, but you may need to wait. Recommend the... More

We LOVE Penang food and we favor Indian food. Therefore, we have tried many different establishments in Penang. Of these places, Sri Ananda Bahwan is by far the most delicious and the best price! There is something for all it seems. In Georgetown, there are 2 locations right near each other in Little India. One has strictly vegetarian and the... More
