“Definitely not the best Indian Food around!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2011

I am an indian fanatic.. love the food, the culture, etc. Our first time going to this restaurant.. right off the bat felt like it was a restaurant attempting to be modern with their decor, was not succeeding in anything but looking like a large dining room at ikea. Even by looking at the menu - it was not authentic by any means. We had a few typical dishes... asparages fritters, which were actually really good.. best thing all night for sure. Chick peas which were totally flavourless, and the butter chicken which was watery and still had large chunks of coriander, and if you have ever bitten into a piece of coriander, you know it is not the best thing. Naan bread was good.. and the beer was good, because it was Granville Island Lager. Atleast i got 1,000 Open table points! :) Would be taking a miss on this one for next time though.

“Our new favourite restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2010

We love Annapurna! The food is wonderful, atmosphere is really relaxing and service is great. They are expanding thier buffet starting in August so even more choices. You can also order of the menu. Lots of Vegetarian and also lots of Vegan. Free parking in the back so that is convienient as well. We will continue to go regularly and highly recommend it.

“very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

Normally Annapurna is a busy spot. Tonight it was empty and I see why. The service was almost non-existant, the food took forever to be served and when it arrived all dishes were cold. The waiter acted as if it was an inconvenience to reheat it. This is not the Annapurna of old. Save the hassle and find another vegetarian Indian restaurant.
