I had been to Annalakshmi fine dining restaurant and not to the buffet section this time. This is the first time I dined here and had taken my Uncle too. We enjoyed the richness in the food, amazing flavours & tastes, the good ambiance and the amazing hospitality . Their menu choice is amazing and it is a wonderful experience... More

One of the best thali I have ever had in Chennai. Amazing ambience, awesomely authentic and delicious food and excellent service - that's how I would describe my lunch at Annalakshmi today. There is such a variety of items, right from the healthy salad, ajwain paratha, paneer masala, traditional veppam-poo, manathakkali, sundaikkai with ghee, vatha-kuzhambu, chutneys, thokku and an out-of-world...

The food is great but the quantities served are way too much for the average diner. Their dinner thali consists of 6 different types of rice, various curries and dhals , topped off with desserts and ice cream. A lot of food is wasted, as the waiters are overly hospitable, and obviously not trained to take "No" for an answer..... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Chennai I visit with my family and friends every time I visit Chennai. Food is great, experience is wonderful and very fulfilling. It seems little pricy for what the Kids can eat. One suggestion to them is to introduce a Kids friendly menu offering.

Visit this place only if you love SOuth Indian food and if you are really Hungry. Had Lunch at this place on weekday and still the place was fully occupied. The food tastes great but the rates are on higher side.

Well cooked food... Delicious taste ... Avoid the North Indian stuff and focus on pure south India spread which they get you... Must visit of you are in a mood for homely- vegetarian food

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....
