“Very good Indian Vegetarian Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

The food is very tasty and rich, staff is extremely friendly and the artwork displayed in the restaurant gives a nice atmosphere.

Only downer in my opinion is the "pay as you like" philosophy. I'd prefer given prices for the following reason: Then one is also able to order very expensive dishes if he likes, the restaurant is able to offer those respectively. I would have loved some fresh cut mangoes or a mango lassi but there wasn't any. In the earlier times when the prices were given it was possible to order such dishes.

“Once a wonderful place - But avoidable now”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

I used to be a regular patron @ Annalakshmi when it was at Excelsior. But I've not tried the new location & the Janata place. So I was quite happy to go there couple of weeks back.

It was a rude shock. The people're no longer interested in serving you or taking care of you. The food was terrible. Even the rasam was cold. When we end up at payment we decided to pay $8/person. The staff/volunteer started to mumble and didn't even uttered a word along those lines (thanks, how was the food..)which bring customers back.

Then unintentionally we end up two days back at the same place thank to the 'near-by' feel. Oh my god, This is really a shame on the place. This time we've got 'hair' in the food. If you are an Indian or been to Indian restaurants you know how that'd feel.

If you are keen on food, you better avoid this place. If to support a charity, then there are tons of charities in town and eager to work with you to help needy.

I'll conclude this as a "A failed cause at their best"

“Possibly the best Indian food in Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

This is the best Indian vegetarian restaurant in Singapore of all the food I've had in the 3 years of my stay in Singapore. Real authentic South and North Indian food. Do try out the Mango lassi and any other lassi that might be on offer.

“Unique Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

Excellent quality, home cooked style, pure veg Indian food buffet, produced by a charity. Unusual and delicious selection of dishes. The one down side is that you pay what you think the meal is worth and as a result the tendency is to be generous and the meal was a little expensive. Very friendly staff, who I believe are volunteers.
