One of our fav restaurants in Penang

We just had lunch at the vegetarian section of Sri Ananda and have dined many times at their other branches. It's a fantastic place to get a quick bite to eat if you are on the run and need takeaway, or if you want some thali or dosa ( or any of their delicious curries) and sit down with your... read more

Well, weekend you have no choice you must order banana leaf sets if you wanna take rice with side dishes. It's kinda waste for me as I don't take much curry which they serve together with the banana leaves. Even if I say no they still serve and it's a waste. The mango lassi is nice, and roti canai is...

We also got ripped off at this restaurant. We ordered one of the sets and were surprised when our bill came and it was way higher than expected. They told us we ordered something that wasn't included, but it was a pure scam. There wasn't a miscommunication at all. Considering the other recent posts about this, maybe this is part... More

Good food and good service at a reasonable price. Their Tosai is a good portion and very affordable. Coconut is delicious and they even cut it open after you finished drinking the coconut water so that you can get at the tasty kernel.

Paid total of RM 34 (exclude GST) for one banana leave rice with mutton and one with chicken. When questioned, was told that RM 10 is for the vegetarian set of banana leave rice and RM 12 each for the chicken and mutton. This means that each set is RM 5 + RM 12 = RM 17. They even tried... More

If you are looking for Indian vegetarian meal, pls visit this shop. It is fully vegetarian and they have another branch nearby (a few shops away) that serves non vegetarian food as well. We love having breakfast or lunch here. Try their poori, thosai, idli, indian parota or even their vegetarian nasi lemak. Simply wonderful
