Amazing restaurant, serving north indian and south indian foods at very reasonable prices, try the veg pulav and the chole bahture. Very tasty food prepared freshly, it is a self service place.

We called in here for a quick breakfast as we prefer tasty local food to the overpriced faux croissants & coffee available elsewhere hereabouts. It's a self service, fast food kind of place but don't let that put you off. It's very popular with locals...More

Ideally located. In thr groundfloor a large variety of sweets and snacks are sold. Self help meal is also available. First floor has a fine dine restaurant. Very congested. No place for waiting. Service is poor. South Indian food quality is good

Good place to get a quick lunch or snack. Located near canal st, caters to all. Pocket friendly but has variety. Complete South Indian place with a hint of North Indian food. Visit if you are really hungry - Great speed of service!!

This is the first Adyar Ananda Bhavan that I've been to where there is self service. The self service however isn't the quickest. It is well located, at the edge of the French Quarter.
