We have been coming to Ann Purna for years, every time we come to the Festival. We considered this the best Indian restaurant, particularly for vegetarians, better than Kalpna over the road. The mother used to do most of the cooking, which was delicious, and the father managed the front of house -- a lovely friendly man. Sadly he had a heart problem and had to retire, and their son has taken over. He is not up to the job - doesn't seem interested in the customers, is a bit obsequious, and the cooking has gone downhill. He is more interested in packing customers in - the tables are much too close together.
When we were there some of the customers were complaining about the slow delivery, but we seem to have been very lucky, because we explained we had a short time before our next play, and they served us very quickly. Some of the main courses are still very good, but most are average. And I was really surprised that they don't take credit cards any longer - crazy, surely?
