We often go to Anand because of excellent service, cleanliness, top-notch south indian food and price. The upma, dahi vada, lassi and the dosas are to die for.

Situated at 19 Cr Avenue, Near Dalhousie Square Area, Kolkata, Anand has been an iconic south Indian restaurant since time immemorial. However the owners think that they can continue with their legacy even till date. Agree their food tastes great but running a food business is not all about taste and quality. A lot of other factors are important too.... More
