This Adyar Ananda Bhavan , or A2B the chain of hotels across Tamilnadu is the best choice whereever you are. Clean hygiene and quic service makes this Adyar Ananda Bhavan hotel a wonderful place for its morning tasty pongal, Dosai and its piping hot sambar and coconut chutneys. Very very tasty on your taste buds. Of course the final touch... More

Fresh hot food was served. All the South Indian dishes we tasted were good. Ghee roast was real crisp, pongal was tasty, sambar and chutney quite good. Adai aviyal too was good. But coming to the North Indian dishes, naan, roti were soft and freshly made. But all the side dishes tasted bland, no taste, no flavour and in fact... More

I had lunch at A2B during my visit to Meenakshi temple at Madurai. They serve only veg food. I tried south thali and it was very good. Other family members ordered north indian dishes and they were good too. Staff was courteous.

During our three day visit to Madurai, my husband and I ate at Adayar five times. We also bought sweets from their dessert shop and enjoyed those back at the hotel. Price for meals was very low, manager and staff very friendly and helpful. We're not even vegetarian!!

​Serves the same standard of quality vegetarian food A2B is known for. Only misgiving though the ambiance is not as you would find it in A2B restaurants in the metro's. You feel that the dim lighting is to cover up the torn cushions in the dining area and not so clean tables. Ambiance needs improvement. Overall great vegetarian food.
