The staff didn't seem very interested. Food was tasty. The prawn curry and dosa were good. The thali didn't have too many side dishes. Taste was good but variety would be nice. They don't serve alcohol. We were seated immediate but had to keep looking out to see if staff would attend to us. They were not very proactive. The... More

Famous Indian restaurant in Penang apparently. We weren't disappointed. There's a vast menu ...I'm sure everything would be lovely as our meal was. Highly recommended

Food is very reasonably priced and service is ok. However I had the best Butter Chicken I have ever eaten here and came back a second time to show a friend how good it was. Skip the Asian menu and stick with the Indian food on offer as it really is an Indian restaurant and the Nasi Goreng I had... More

Was invited here by friend for dinner at 7pm. Premise was still empty with only 2 tables taken. Venue is just opposite Flamingo Hotel & there's parking available, can also park by the road side in front of restaurant. The entrance may look small but once i walked inside, it's surprisingly spacious & deep with many tables. My assumption is... More

Unlike most other Indian restaurants on the island, Sri Ananda features a selection of every corner of the subcontinent, expertly prepared with authentic herbs and spices. Taste rather than jut heat. Try the Kashmiri dishes for spice without heat.

The variety of food is great & should please every palate; F&B quality is consistently good. I also recently catered for a private function at a remote location & the generously portioned food arrived punctually while still being warm

Over the years we eat at this indian restsurant. We like the roto banana, the vegetarian dishes and the juices. If you eat meat and tandoori you have a much grester and better choice. Try a banana leaf meal. Unfortunately, the veggies are cooked to long, so you don't have anything to chew on. Also do not forget to say... More

Unusual as in where we live in the U.K.we don't have any southern Indian restaurants. It was quite an experience in trying out the different dishes, food was tasty and fresh, service was friendly and efficient. Have been there three times now and is of the same good quality.
