We’ve been to Ananda twice in the past three weeks and the food was exceptional both times. The goa fish is a marvelous whole fish that was delicious. The duck was the best I’ve ever had. The cauliflower,corn and crab soup too good for words....More

We had the whole Goa fish (bronzini), the fish curry (cod), and naan. The entrees were served with a reasonable portion of rice and saag. The food is beautifully seasoned and light. Also enjoyed the wine from India - Sula Vineyards Chenin Blanc. It’s fruity...More

Fantastic meal, great food and excellent service. Would not hesitate to return or recommend. Food was delicately spiced leaving a long and enjoyable after taste.

Great food. Fresh ingredients. The Garam masala goat has the right spices and safe amount of pepper. Delicious. My friend got the crab cake with rice and lentils. It was very fresh but not as delicious as the garam masala goat. Ask to sit in...More

Questions & Answers
DCTravelers1, Thanks so much for mentioning the value of the buffet. It gives Ananda an opportunity to clarify a few things. The buffet contains over 19 items, and it's all-you-can-eat. If you ordered everything on the buffet menu, you'd be in for a bill of approximately $150. We also have cocktails for $3 during brunch. All our meat is pasture-raised, and we buy almost everything locally. Everything is made from scratch in-house. We are very proud of the value that we offer our guests. Here is a full list of everything that is on the buffet, listed with the corresponding lunch prices: Chicken Tikka Masala 11 Palak Paneer 9 Roasted Banana Challah French Toast Caserole 11 Navrattan Curry 9 House-Cured salmon 11 Chicken Chaat 5 Mixed green salad 5 Bindi Pyaz 15 Tandoori Chicken 18 Lamb Vindaloo 13 Ragda Tikkis with Chana 6 Kulu Kofta 9 Kerala Cakes 11 Chocolate Cake 7 Rice Pudding 5 Gulab Jamun 5 Daal 9 Naan 2 Thank you, again, for giving us the opportunity to address this for future customers. We are so glad you liked the food!

I believe it is a stretch to imply that the buffet is a good value. Albeit, It does provide a variety of foods - all you can eat, but what individual person can eat $150 worth of food? I am confident that most customers... More

Like just about all restaurants in MD, no dress code. I'd probably feel underdressed in ratty jeans or shorts and flip-flops, but we wore "nice" jeans and sweaters and it was just fine. But as I said in my review, the... More
