“One of good vegetarian option in Port-Blair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Port-Blair doesn't have many AC restaurants (not counting those which are attached to hotels) so this comes on pretty top with decent price, nice ambience, good food, easy locationon main aberdeen bazaar (buses/autos easily available to and from here).

“Excellent Vegetarian food. Amazing Breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I practically had ALL MY BREAKFAST throughout my stay here in Annapurna. The South Indian dishes are amazing and homely. They serve PURE VEGETARIAN food. Opens at 0800. After 1100 you'll find people queuing up for lunch. Waiting time is almost half an hour and reservations are not accepted. Excellent Value for money.

Try IDLY, VADA, Masala Dosa, Butter Masala Dosa. Also Curd Rice is amazing.

There's an air-conditioned dining area overlooking the road. Opens when the normal area is crowded.

There's a problem with service, as the staff number is less than required. I believe it to be transient. All steward duties are by ladies only. As per local information, the lady who owns the restaurant is a School Dean and she's working on uplifting status of women in society by providing them employment. She's said to be a very powerful personality in the area.

“Decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We have been to Annapurna one fine evening for dinner. The place is right in the middle of the city, so no worries about getting lost. We walked from Cellular Jail via the market to reach Annapurna hotel. The walk was for around 1.5KM. We enjoyed the walk, did a bit of shopping on the way.

The food is decent, but looks to be understaffed. One person had to take all the orders, and there were only 2-3 servers. The food took relatively more time to reach, but it was good. Not excellent, but would definitely give stars. Since we had a group of 9 people, we almost tried everthing on the menu - right from dosas, idly, chapathi, fried rice, noodles, pulao etc. Only vegeterian food is served, so have to live with these only :)

“Great food but deficient service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Restaurant has very good, tasty food. I visited it twice during my stay in port blair and have no complaints about the taste of the dishes I tried there. Actually it was beyond expectation.

On another note, there service is the area they lack in. Firstly the staff is not enough to cater the crowd they have. One waiter would be catering to number of tables beyond his capacity. On top of this they do not note down your order and may make mistakes. Waiter did that with us. Delivered extra and insisted that we ordered. When we asked to show us the order, he had nothing. So just be extra careful there and ask him to repeat your order.
