This time we were there for dinner. At dinner you have the option of ordering a-la-carte. We opted for South Indian Fare and were not disappointed. The Sambar, rasam and poriyals were outstanding. So was the curd rice and all the vadams and appalams (pappad). Price wise you do not gain much by not opting for Thali only advantage I... More

Read and heard super reviews of this place. Called and they said only buffet awailable - so went there yesterday. This lady greeted us at the entrance and took us to this open hall like very ordinary place. Like a kalyan mantap set up. The food was good but the ambience was terrible & then the bomb of a bill....

After a long time had an amazing meal. The fact that they continuosly come with multiple courses of food is a delight. Everything tasted excellent and it was worth the money. After a heavy lunch here you must go home and take a nap. One of the best meals I had, will definitely go back. Only downside is you have... More

I was here for a family get together recently at the buffet restaurant.. It is a real paradise for Taste Buds. All the dishes served her are of very high standards. It is served in a courteous manner by a series of volunteers. I am sure i will visit this palce again, shortly. Kudos to the entire team.

This was a place I was looking forward to after hearing a lot .. never knew it would turn out to be such a horrific experience.. booked a table at 8.30pm.. but as usual the Chennai traffic was unkind and we turned up for a special dinner at 9. After waiting for a couple of minutes, we were told that... More

This is a must-visit spot for dinner in Chennai. What makes it feel so special? It is lovingly decorated, clean, and the staff is very kind and attentive. The food is some of the best I've ever eaten. Skip the buffet side and eat the thali dinner. Each dish is so delicate and well-prepared with fresh ingredients. The staff will... More

Enjoyed an incredible thali at Annalakshmi. All the food was perfect, the service was great and the waiters took time to explain what each dish was, what it went with and how to eat it. My favourites included puri with potato and bean curry and the fresh mango juice. A meal to remember!

We wanted to eat inside the restaurant for the main course (served twice daily), but by the time we arrived, we were too late. Instead, we ate the buffet. The staff were very helpful, explaining the food and how to eat the few dishes which we had never seen before. Get a mango lassi if you're feeling thirsty. While we... More
