Having a meal here is an experience. Each dish is so genuine. It is part of a charitable organisation.

It was a great experience having lunch at Annalakshmi restaurant in Chennai. The relaxed atmosphere and the leisurely service one course at a time was great. The staff was very courteous and friendly and were willing to cater to the children according to their taste. Food is prepared by volunteers very fresh only after we were seated at the table....

this is a very cosy and good ambience hotel. Here people do service and all proceeds r for charity. The food given is excellent to taste and a good variety. A must if u have foreign visitors.they will like it as the food for their palate will not be spicy,but moderate and finger licking.

This was our first meal after our flight into India and it didn't disappoint. Extremely good vegetarian food and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. It can be quite difficult to find as its tucked in behind another building but if you ask someone they are sure to point you in the right direction as it is quite popular!
