Parhetic is the only word that comes to mind when we think of A2b. Quality deteriorated to such a level that you cannot imagine. Ordered Paneer manchurian gravy but got some oily gravy with no trace of manchurian taste. Paneer is too hard. Veg paneer...noodles had just Green capsicum shimla type and cabbage constituted 80 percent of noodle and very less noodle. My child was disappointed and had to search for noodle threads like a needle in the haystack. Will never come back. Sangeetha veg OMR provides soft yummy Paneer compared to A2B Chromepet and Paneer should be soft enough to dissolve in mouth like butter. Not sure from where they source Paneer.More

Other than it being crowded, nothing positive to write about. Service standards , attitude of staff, choice of food and hygiene - below par. Apparently food comes from Chennai for this outlet. So much for local and fresh food

Very much crowded during lunch hours. Good, reasonably priced authentic south indian meals along with other dishes are available. Service is a bit slow during these peak lunch hours but overall experience was satisfactory

A guy in the nearby market recommended we came here. We were very happy he did. When we walked in we we very happy to see a clean looking restaurant, good seating areas, amazing cakes, plus great dosas, curry etc. We stood at the counter...trying to order anything we could, when one of the staff came over speaking almost perfect English, which resulted in us getting everything we wanted, plus a few of his recommendations. One of the women serving the food also spoke a bit of English & everybody was very friendly. There's not very much in Cuddalore and we didn't see another westerner during our couple of days there, but I will always remember how relived we were to find this place. Everybody was so nice to us & the food was great. The only slight downside was that they didn't have wifi for us to figure out how to get to Pondicherry, however they did help us to book a taxi. A big thank you to all the staff from your English friends.More

On the way back from Swamimalai, we as a family wanted to stop over at a hygienic and a good restaurant on the way. In Cuddalore, we stopped over at Adyar Ananda Bhavan. The lunch that we had was not only tasty but the place...was also very hygienic and had excellent service. The staff was very cordial and also very helpful. It is one of the places which I would strongly recommend if you are driving past here.More

This is the best vegetarian restaurant in South India, where the entire menu is fully Indian food recipes like North Indian foods, South Indian foods and Indian sweets like Bengali sweets, Dry Fruit sweets and milk and ghee sweets. This is the perfect place who...prefers theirs Indian vegetarian foods. The ambiance is clean and the service also very good. The food quality is always excellent. I recommend this pure veg restaurant for whom is all making a tour to India.More
