If you love Andhra food, and you are really hungry at lunch time, this is the place to visit. At Rs. 100, the unlimited Thali is a steal. It gives you full value for money and more. If you visit at lunch time, to try to reach the restaurant before 12.30 as it gets very crowded and you will have to wait for a seat for upto half an hour if you reach between 1.00pm and 2.30pm. Excellent food!

For some one who is a fan of non veg dishes and craving for some spicy andhra food, dive into this place.
The chicken and fish curry though have been excellent, for me the mutton curry stood out at the top of all.

The AP Bhavan Canteen is situated at the junction of Jaswant Singh Road and Ashok Road. It is not too far from Connaught Place or India Gate. You can easily identify it by the cars parked on both sides of the road and the milling crowds - a rarity in this part of Lutyen's Delhi.

Entry is thru a rotating metal gate, en route to the canteen you will see an Andhra Bank ATM, a Vijaya Milk Parlor and some vendors selling plastic toys, Andhra pickles and other trinkets.

Once you are inside, you are treated to boisterous crowds awaiting their turn to enter the Bhavan on Sundays and fairly decent crowds on other days of the week.

We were fortunate enough (I was there on Friday and Saturday) to be able to walk without much waiting time - Sundays could be easily an hour - for me on Fri/Sat it was all of 5 minutes. Seated efficiently and the plate plonked in front of you with varieties galore, it is a visual spectacle and gastronomic delight.

There are the following in the typical Unlimited Meals offered for Rs.100

a) Sweet
b) Curd
c) Curry-1
d) Curry-2
e) Vegetables-1
f) Vegetables-2 or Green Leafy Vegetables (keera as they call it)
g) Papad (charged if more than one is required)
h) Poori's (unlimited)
i) Pulav
j) Plain Rice (unlimited)
k) Sambhaar
l) Rasam

Plus on the table are always handily available

a) Gongura Pickle
b) Avakaya Mango Pickle
c) Lemon Pickle
d) Dal/Lentil Powder (Pappulu Podi, locally called)
e) Ghee (clarified butter)

Plus incrementally you can also buy

a) Mutton Curry
b) Mutton Fry
c) Chicken Curry
d) Chicken Fry

By the time you maneuver your way thru even half of this thaali, you are filled up like an "anaconda". It is so filling and so delicious that you would want to make one more visit and one more and one more and so on.

Brilliant stuff and will visit again.

My 2c worth advice: Be there on time, if need be, plan an early lunch starting 12-30 on week-ends so that you don't pace your steps outside the restaurant wasting a lot of time.

Recently learnt that there is an AP Civil Supplies Corporation Outlet very near AP Bhavan Canteen that sells Sona Masoori Rice from Kurnool or Nellore (depends on the contractor's lorry supplies) at a rate that makes you feel delighted. We bought last Saturday 4 sacks of 25 kg each at 40 Rupees to a kilogram. The same rice in Delhi / Gurgaon markets is sold anywhere at 55 to 60 Rupees a kilogram.

Additional incentive if you want to make use of the government's supply chain to serve you your staple food.
