Good and cheap food ! It's a bit messy, many customers, many waiters, wait a bit and they will come and serve you. Try the samossas and the chana massala, it's amazing. We have been there almost everyday since we are in penang.

The menu at Sri Ananda is very extensive and everything we have tried is well presented, tasty and inexpensive. The service is not great but it's easy to get a waiter's attention. The only real downside is that it's incredibly hot in the restaurant.
