The ambience and decor is very authentic and classy Food had a traditional flavour which was excellent. Quick service. Kitchen closes by 9. Recommend that you make a reservation a few days in advance.

For a foodie like me, food come first in any diner. Here is a place where the divinity engulfs you by its ambience. The shrine amidst the tables, soothing music and scent of sandalwood fills your cup of happiness. Then there is food to make it brim over... Food is typically South Indian multi tier cuisine with decent servings. The... More

Centrally located, the ambience and food is really great,The South indian thali is too good and gun powder and ghee makes a fantastic beginning to the meal. Good variety of vegetarian dishes and try out their fresh seasonal fruit juice. Extremely good! If going by car ensure that you have a driver,otherwise your blood pressure will definitely go up and... More

The restaurant is conveniently located near old Air India office and behind a Nissan showroom. Try to travel by a car with driver or taxi because you may find the parking too tedious. Once you are inside the restaurant (if you have a prior table booking) you will find the interiors very pleasant and the waiters, captain and even Manager... More

Fulfilling not only for the tastebuds but also the innerself. The ambience is serene. You feel as if yoou are in a temple. The vegeterian stuff on offer is delightfully tasty. The main coures seemed to be never ending. They kept comming up with something more. The dessert was equally good. The hospitality excellent. Highly recomended.

Annalakshmi restaurant was and is a novel experiment in Chennai---a unique, traditional rich ambience, serving some innovative appetiser/dishes and some traditional South Indian dishes also at a meal---but the uniqueness arises from the people who serve--they are all rich affluent citizens, dressed in fine native costumes and volunteering their service and time---and the organisation contributes a portion of their gross...

I spent an hour trying to find this place and an hour dodging traffic in chennai is like 7 lifetimes in toronto. Finally found the place, and it was booked solid but I was given a table. It has a separate party room as well. Beautiful place and lovely talented staff. The only thing is that this Indian food is... More

A truly veggie paradise. Excellent ambience, great food and courteous service. Can get overcrowded on occasions. Truly delicious south Indian dishes.
