Another satisfactory visit to this excellent place which is run by charity and You pay as much as you want for the meal..... The food is excellent, wholesome and has that "home-cooked" feel to it. The spread is wide (2 kinds of bread, 2 kinds of rice, 3 kinds of veggies and 3 kinds of curries) ... And all vegetarian.... More

The food was pretty good, lots of flavour and a good selection but the rice had been sitting for too long and was very sticky and unappetizing. Interesting concept that you pay what you like. A good spot for vegetarians for lunch.

The restaurant is unique. A perfect lunch buffet. You pay what you feel is worth. I think it opens only for lunch. If you prefer to get your place, visit them between 11 -12 noon as it gets crowded later. I know it deserves more, but to start with consider atleast 5 SGD for adults and kids (as you like)....

The food at Annalakshmi was excellent... very home-cooked, strong South Indian fare, with a decent mix of North Indian syles. Pure buffet only works well for this place as all of us are in a hurry and need to quickly sit down and eat.The Eat what you like, pay as you feel is a great concept and much appreciated. Also...

This restaurant serves authentic south indian food with a smile..the spread consists of many south indian dishes like idli/vada, rasam, sambhar, roti, sabji, rice, puttu, sweet, curd,etc which tastes yummy, they also keep on changing their spreads frequently. Please book in advance before visiting.

Aside from all the social value that this chain supposedly supports, for me this restaurant is a friendly reminder that good wholesome food doesn't need to cost a lot. One doesn't see a lot of hungry people on the streets of Singapore, but if there were, it's nice to know they have a place to go.

The food is wonderful. Been there 3 times. Food taste best when you savour it with thankfulness. The old gentleman at the counter is the owner and he is most willing to explain the purpose of the restaurant and the art pieces displayed for sale. His course and his person must be respected. The lady staff cannot help it except... More

I have been here a few times primarily because i was told that this has a social theme. The food is a south indian buffet with a fair selection . They do serve rotis/pooris on rotation basis. They also have some juice (usually lime),sweet and papad and sometimes raita. The problem with this joint is as follows: 1. The quality... More
