Anand is the best choice if one is looking for a quick and inexpensive meal at Chittaranjan Avenue. Anand is the typical dimly lighted south Indian fast food joint, with no pretence to elegance or style, except for their paper placemats with blue sketches of Kolkata’s landmarks. You simply walk up the stairs, order idli-vada-masala dosa, gobble it up, pay... More

The restaurant gets lots of officegoer customers. The insides are clean and the South Indian fare they have to offer are varied, though, at times, not very authentic. The price is a bit of the higher side I'd say.

We came especially because the dosas were recommended. We found they lived up to our expectations! We each ordered something different and each one was absolutely delicious. Staff were also excellent and we loved the vibe of the place :) would definitely recommend Anand to friends visiting Kolkata. This was my favourite dining experience in Kolkata.

The Good old south Indian stuff with quite decent price tags makes u forget the poor ambiance and the crowd. They still have a good service keeping in mind the crowd. The dosa's n the special chutney is to die for. Although they have continental and north Indian fare in their menu also it’s more popular with the south Indian... More

The place was good and centrally located. Food was nice and served well. Would love to visit again. Also the price of food was reasonable enough along with Staff service which made it perfect for a dinner outside. Only thing is that it is closed on Wednesdays and rest days closes around 9:30pm. So one has to plan early dinner,... More

During a lengthy stay in Kolkata I ate here in excess of 30 occasions. I could always rely on high quality food which is served in a prompt manner. Even on occasions where the restaurant is packed to the brim (which is frequent at peak times), the waiting staff would always endeavour to ensure that I was seated somewhere. Being... More

If you are going in Lunch or Dinner time. you won't get seats easily. I don't know they have any reservation system or not,... More
