About Us


At Sri Anandha Bhavan, from the moment you step through our doors, the ambience of the restaurant is comfortable and helps narrate the story of South India – the place and culture that inspires the food we serve.


We ensure that our staff are well equipped to provide you with the best service as you dine with us. We take great efforts to always ensure that our patrons are satisfied starting with greeting by our smiling staff upon entry, leading to helping you place the order, and all the way to the food being prepared and served.


Our food and recipes encompass the tradition of our South Indian culture – where spices add flavour and have healing properties too. The methods used to prepare our foods also stem from traditional processes which help us give you the best experience in dining with us.

Athithi Devo Bhava

At Sri Ananda Bhavan we believe in the ancient Hindu script “Athithi Devo Bhava” which means that “The guest is equivalent to God”, and we make sure to satisfy every guest that walks through our doors. Our menu is traditional yet diverse. We serve mouth-watering South Indian breakfast throughout the day, traditional Thali (Meals) for lunch and dinner including our special Kalyanasappadu, and Indo Chinese for the adventurous guest. Our exclusive Coffee counter serves authentic South Indian “filter” coffee.

Most of our dishes are suited to the Vegan lifestyle. Please talk to our friendly staff if you want more information

We don’t just stop with awesome food

Our trained staff will be available to offer you the best service throughout the day. Even though we do not serve food in our garden area yet, we do encourage our guests to step out to take in a breath of fresh air and soak up the sun.

Our fine dining restaurant is located on the Princess Highway, opposite Fountain Gate shopping centre.
