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!

This restaurant is in a slightly unlikely location - the 1st floor of what looked like an office building, but don't be put off, the food is great and its worth making the effort to go. We booked in advance, which we'd recommend if you want the ala carte menu, otherwise there is a buffet room that you get directed... More

Lunch at Annalakshmi with family today - my first ever visit to their restaurant in Chennai. I have visited their Coimbatore outlet a couple of times. A nice concept - the restaurant was started by Swami Shantanand in 1982. The whole operations are run by devotees of the late Swami - right from people who cook to people who serve... More

a flavor of Indian heritage. A must see for foreign tourists and also locals alike. The food came a bit slowly but considering that we were a group of 30+, I think they could have arranged for a more specialized service with a single waiter. The food taste was great and I would give full marks for it.
