“One of the bets chain of hotels in the South”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Known to be one of the best hotels in the south, this branch does no less in adding glory to Adyar Anand bhavan. The crowd says it all. Crowded thru the day this outlet has a sweet shop, and a section that serves piping hot food. While south indian dishes are their speciality, they also make fried rice, roti curry and other north indian dishes. Do try the Iddiyapan kurma when at AAB.

“Crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Too crowded. THe crowd will hamper any enjoyment.
Food is OK as expected, but too crowded in the afternoons and evenings.

“Crowded but good place..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

If you are visiting Pondicherry as a tourist and are near the beach or shopping district (JN Street) or near the Aurobindo Ashram or praying at the Manakula Vinayakar Temple, A2B is the perfect fast food joint and most particularly for the vegetarians, this place is a boon. It has a huge variety of food ready to eat and the range of sweets and savouries at sale is amazing. The taste of every item here is the same always.
If the management is listening, there are many things they need to correct:
1.) The quantity of chutnies and side dishes served is very insufficient
2.) The yellow plastic (acrylic) plates have worn out and a sore sight and look very unhygienic too.
3.) The disposable plastic spoons are so bad that they cut your tongue if you are in a hurry.
The chats are a must have here.

“Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Gets very crowded, small space but amazing food. By 10:30 most of the tiffin items were over. Taste is good. The only disadvantage was the space constraint.
