Beast South Indian Vegetarian in the city. This is a hidden gem. Healthy, tasty food and great customer services. The Dosa's alone are worth a visit. Highly recommended.

What once was one of our favorites has now gone woefully downhill. A few weeks ago we were disappointed with the food to the extent that we couldn't eat it. The restaurant offered to remake it but it would have arrived too late. We gave them one last chance. Mostly inedible. Greasy. Missing ingredients. What a mistake. Never again.

Jain option available!I believe it's a pure vegetarian restaurant in the middle of NYC. Must go!However, they do serve liquor.Very spacious and great service. They easily accommodated our party of 11.Authentic Indian Food. They can make it as spicy as you like!

I love the South Indian food here! My go-to items are the onion rava masala dosa and pondicherry masala dosa. I've also tried the utthapams and they're really good as well. In my experience, the South Indian items here are a lot better than the North Indian ones.It's calm and most times, you can easily walk in. I like the casual vibe here and the service is fast!

The food was immemorable, and was merely fuel. I was hoping for more from a vegetarian eatery since I am vegan. We arrived in the late afternoon on a Sunday before it potentially would have become busy with dinner service. We were the only diners (never a good sign).The restaurant spelled of mold like a musty old unfinished basement. That was a total turn-off. Eventual kitchen cooking fragrances helped cover up. Service was unimpressive. A loud drunk couple came in and was seated near our table, only making the experience worse, which cannot really be held against the restaurant. I'll go to reliable Mali Marke on E 6 St instead.

I ate here for the first time this evening with a friend. Oh my goodness. I loved everything I ate! We ordered the Gobi Manchurian, Spinach Masala Dosa, Chole Bhatura, and Palak Tofu. The dosa and bhatura were huge!! And everything was so flavorful. I had to slow myself down because I enjoyed it so much. The chole (mildly sweet) and palak tofu (savory) were so different and delicious. The dosa was crispy and amazing. There could have been more sambar and chutney with the dosa, but we dealt with it. I would definitely come back here with my family. Try them out!

The host was extremely cordial. We went knocking on their door at 4pm, while their staff were on their lunch break, the host let us in and was extremely friendly and let us sit inside for about half an hour before they opened their dinner service. At 5pm, when the dinner service opened up, he walked up to us, took our order and served some delicious coffee first and Mysore masala dosas and pau bhaji! It was indeed a delightful experience.Experiencing humanity in a city like Newyork Was great.Give the place a try.Thanks again for being so cordial and letting us relax and dine in your place Ananda.

A pleasant place to visit after a tiring day at work. Ananda won't disappoint with their foodie treats. A nice and well maintained South Indian restaurant near MagDougal Street. Pondicherry Dosa is my favorite. It was absolutely delicious. Batata vada is also one thing that you should try. Gobi manchurian and Rava onion masala dosa are average. All the best to the team. Keep serving the good food. Love, Amey!

I really enjoy the South Indian dishes on their menu. The staff is always warm, considerate and helpful. Really good place to get vegetarian/vegan Indian food in the Washington Square Park area!

Fantastic food. My favorite Indian food in the neighborhood. Delicious and great, diverse options. I see from a few one-star reviews that they often don’t have their orders ready on time. That hasn’t been my experience, but please, Ananda, get your orders on time so you stop getting (silly) bad reviews and lose business! I want you around for many years.

We tried their north Indian & south indian Thali. Both hit the spot in terms of flavour & quality. It's rare to find a restaurant capable of executing well to both types of cuisines (north & south Indian). Well definitely be a return customer.

One of the worst experiences in recent times. On July 5th, I visited Ananda for having lunch with my family. The restaurant was half empty. However, the owner/manager behaved extremely rudely and throw us out of the restaurant saying he was extremely busy and will not allow us. It is absolutely Ananda's prerogative whom it wants to cater food. But the way he threw was out was extremely rude. Probably brown skin people are not the target customer

Loved our dosa and the South Indian Thali. The thali also came with rasam, so that was a bonus we were not expecting. Great coconut and tomato chutney. Flavorful sambhar too.

Came here to get a masala dosa and it didn't disappoint. Dosa is light and has a nice crisp to it. Some parts got chewy when it's no longer warm. Lentil soup was bland but the masala potatoes had a nice flavor to it. The food and service took a while even though I was the only customer. Will come back to try other dishes when I'm in the mood for Indian.
